Storyline

Midwest preacher's son 'Butch' Parker gets a pardon after a well-deserved year in jail on promise never again to commit crimes in Wyoming. He befriends naive ranch hand Harry, would be-crime king the Sundance Kid. In relative Mike Cassidy's gang, they rob targets defended by the ruthless Pinkerton Agency men. The gang becomes the Wild Bunch after Mike is killed and Butch takes his place, by now reputed Robin Hoods as the railroad is so unpopular. Having faked their death, they retire to a pueblo in Mexico with shared girl-friend, photographer Etta Place. Sergeant Sanchez wants the bounty on their heads, or a larger share of their loot.

Goofs

Before a shootout, Butch reminds Sundance that their Colt revolvers are each loaded with six rounds. Although such pistols could indeed hold six cartridges, common practice at the time was to load only five, thereby keeping the hammer down on an empty chamber. This was a safety measure intended to prevent the gun from firing if it was dropped on the the hammer with six rounds loaded. See more »

Forget It!!
24 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Story line was pure crap!! It was a Hollywooder all the way. No room for fact here! The stars were absolutely crummy! Rachelle Lefevre was the only saving grace. She plays a character named Etta who is the girl friend of BOTH of the main characters. How STUPID can we be? Right?!! She did a marvelous job up against the two (so called) stars. Even if you have nothing else to do some day, do not waste 89 minutes of your day on this one. Of course, we must consider that it was "made for TV." This should be enough to keep you away! Photography was pretty good. Direction was totally stupid. Thank God that we know the REAL story of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!!
