Three boy scouts, one a great-nephew of Butch Cassidy, and their pretty girl friend hunt for the lost treasure of the legendary bank robber in 1950s Utah. A modern gang of outlaws wants to grab the loot, too, and soon the intrepid heroes are fleeing for the lives on trains, rafts and automobiles. Written by
I just caught this movie by accident on the Encore/Wam channel, and I was very pleasantly surprised. Take the legend of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and the never ending mystery of were they, or were they not gunned down in Bolivia.
This movie concerns a young kid, possibly the great-nephew of the infamous outlaw, who believes that Butch Cassidy returned to the United States and buried a treasure somewhere in the Utah wilderness.
The action that follows is good old fashioned clean adventure, as 3 boy scouts and their girl friend go hunting for the treasure, pursued by villains, led by Bruce McGill. Lot's of gunfire, jumping trains, escaping down the river in a raft without paddles. All reminiscent of the old Saturday matinée serials. If you like old fashioned fun, and remember the way movies used to be, then young and old can enjoy this one.
The only thing I would take from it, is the pacing was a little slow, and the very ending was a bit "sappy" and looked "tacked on". Otherwise get ready for action adventure with lots of old cars, trucks, train and even a bi-plane, and relive the old days of the Saturday serials!
