Trivia

The coca leaf, which is and has been widely used for medicinal and restorative purposes in Bolivia and surrounding regions, and is featured in at least one scene in the film, is commonly said to resemble the leaves of a blackthorn bush. 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.

A Rhythmic Ride
6 October 2012 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

Great outdoor cinematography highlight this darn good Western. The story of an aging outlaw returning home is engaging and the morality tale is delivered decisively. It has a number of dramatic details that make it believable (taking a slice of meat off the dead horse and roasting it on the campfire).

In all the expanse of the Bolivian landscape the humanity and characterizations are not lost and we care about Butch Cassidy, his lady love, and even the ex-Pinkerton who discovers, then assists our anti-hero on his way to settle the score.

All the elements of classic Westerns are at work here and the pace is methodical and maintained for a rhythmic ride. The gun-play is realistic and never stylized and the result is a new Western with an old West feel.
