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

The initial scene shows a fast-moving posse mounted on horseback chasing Butch and firing at him. But the constant erratic motion of their horses would have prevented the riders from aiming effectively. As a result, only a very lucky shot could have hit Butch. See more »

A pretty good remake of a classic.
26 April 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The idea behind this movie is an idea that is doomed from the start. Everybody knows about the classic movie from 1969 starring the unforgettable Paul Newman and the unforgettable Robert Redford, who together had an unforgettable chemistry that clicked in such an unforgettable way that the two would team up again for THE STING.

Now that we got that out in the open, let us evaluate this movie.

For starters, it was a pretty good movie, though it resembled more of a remake of the movie from 1979, BUTCH AND SUNDANCE, THE EARLY DAYS.

Like THE EARLY DAYS, this movie began with the Sundance Kid being paroled from prison on the merit of his father being a man of the cloth, in other words, a preacher. All he had to do was promise that he would go by the straight and narrow. But being a young man of principle, he could only insure the warden that he would never break the law in Wyoming. So he pursues the life of an outlaw in the other states, instead.

In comparing this movie with the 1979 movie, THE LEGEND OF BUTCH AND SUNDANCE is actually the better of the two. As long as this movie is not compared to the classic from 1969, it is actually a pretty good flick and stands pretty well on its own merit.
