Great cast in mediocre script

In so many ways, this is typical Hollywood.

History is botched so thoroughly, this script becomes caricature.

Despite a great cast, and a pretty good story, watching it was painful for me because of all the character names: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, John Wesley Hardin, and so many other real villains of history are thrown into the mix here.

Naturally, being bad guys, most of them get bumped off -- and it is really infuriating to watch because all those people had real deaths at other places and times.

Why?

Why not just make up other names and present a nice fictional story? It would have been a much better movie.
