Back in 1969 George Roy Hill brought Paul Newman and Robert Redford together in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, a self-consciously stylish western in which two notorious bandits were celebrated as forerunners of the outlaw sensibility of the 1960s. A decade later, Richard Lester, one of the film-makers credited for shaping the artistic expression of the 60s with The Knack and two Beatles films, made his only western, Butch and Sundance: The Early Days. Featuring two young actors, Tom Berenger and William Katt, with uncanny resemblances to Newman and Redford, the film took a quirky but generally realistic look at frontier life as it related to the pair's early criminal life and friendship, ending in the 1890s at the point where they were becoming aware of being legends, leaders of a gang called the Wild Bunch. »

Chicago – I frankly can’t imagine how any moviegoer could favor Mateo Gil’s somber, low-key genre exercise, “Blackthorn,” over George Roy Hill’s marvelously entertaining 1969 classic, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Sure, Western buffs have often criticized Hill’s film for romanticizing its subject matter, yet there was a dark edge and tragic poignance in William Goldman’s script that earned the film its shattering ending.
Moviegoers seeking similar thrills from “Blackthorn” will be sorely disappointed. The picture is a wholly unremarkable rethinking of the Butch Cassidy legend that fails in its aspirations to leave an equally iconic imprint on the oft-mythologized tale. Miguel Barros’ script bases its premise off the conceit that Butch and Sundance’s death in the 1908 Bolivian standoff was based on unsubstantiated evidence. It’s an intriguing premise, but Barros just uses it as an excuse to concoct a less whimsical retread of Goldman’s formula. »
