Reviews for Chisum
Review - Chisum
I don't know enough of the history of the real events to know how fictionalized this version was. The movie made Chisum out to be a hard, but fair man who wanted justice, not revenge. Billy the Kid was played as a sympathetic character trying to improve his life and reputation when the murder of his boss set him off on a violent spree. My guess is that, in real life, there was plenty of blame to go around on both sides.
