At the very beginning of the film there is text reading "Butch Cassidy was ONE THE MOST wanted outlaws in America..." The OF that should be included in the sentence is curiously missing. See more »

Western cinematography is not dead...
11 September 2011 | by (Castlemaine, Australia) – See all my reviews

Westerns are all about cinematography, and Blackthorn is no exception.

Wide, sweeping vistas are the order of the day -- but this time, they're something new: South America, and in particular, Bolivia. This tale of an aging-exiled American outlaw and his attempts to return home may seem a bit straightforward and tame, but in the end it's not and you'll be glad to have spend the hour and forty-five minutes partaking in this latest great example of the genre.

The directing isn't too bad either and the actors generally deliver their lines well, although a few are a bit over-read.

For a modern western that's not an adolescent fantasy and has a great deal of heart, it gets 9/10.
