Trivia

The song that Blackthorn sings when the two of them finally get a horse is the same song that Clint Eastwood sings in Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970) when he is drunk. See more »

Goofs

A continuity error is that at the entrance to the mine, Butch Cassidy tricks Eduardo Apodaca into thinking he has unloaded Eduardo's revolver. A few minutes later, in the mine, he tells Eduardo that he only knew about the gun 10 minutes before; Eduardo checks the cylinder and finds that it is still loaded, Butch having tricked him with a handful of his own cartridges.

However, when the pursuers show up a little later, Butch hands Eduardo his pistol, saying "All right, here's your revolver back," despite never having disarmed him in the first place (and thus winning Eduardo's trust). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
James Blackthorn aka Butch Cassidy: Dear Ryan, I reckon you're feeling a little lonely now that your mother's gone. You're too young for something like this. I know she must have told you about me, and I for one never stopped thinking about you. Even though I've never seen you, I'd bet my best memories that I'd recognize you in the blackest night. These past years have been hard on us all. Very few of us are still around. The land were I live now is a good one. Quiet people, peaceful for the most part. But it's not ...

Good film
19 November 2011 | by (On a distant star) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching westerns, and Butch and Sundance must be up there with my favorite bank robbers. I still love a good western but Hollywood seems to be to busy with re-makes of all kinds, vampires that live in sun light type films, over done special effects galore films, and cheap ass horror film after cheap ass horror film. So I was happy to see this film coming out, good cast, great story, and fantastic scenery to boot! I am not to sure about the stories take on Butch, but besides that I really enjoyed it, the scenery was fantastically caught on film, the story moves at a nice pace, and at times really hit a nerve with me about life, friends that have come and gone, and growing old, and looking back at what we might have done different.

Anyway I enjoyed this film, not a Oscar winner, but well worth it, solid acting by all actors, I gave it a 7.5 out of 10
