Product Description

Amazon.ca

This 1969 film has never lost its popularity or its unusual appeal as a star-driven Western that tinkers with the genre's conventions and comes up with something both terrifically entertaining and--typical of its period--a tad paranoid. Paul Newman plays the legendary outlaw Butch Cassidy as an eternal optimist and self-styled visionary, conjuring dreams of banks just ripe for the picking all over the world. Robert Redford is his more levelheaded partner, the sharpshooting Sundance Kid. The film, written by William Goldman (The Princess Bride) and directed by George Roy Hill (The Sting), basically begins as a freewheeling story about robbing trains but soon becomes a chase as a relentless posse--always seen at a great distance like some remote authority--forces Butch and Sundance into the hills and, finally, Bolivia. Weakened a little by feel-good inclinations (a scene involving bicycle tricks and the song "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" is sort of Hollywood flower power), the movie maintains an interesting tautness, and the chemistry between Redford and Newman is rare. (A factoid: Newman first offered the Sundance part to Jack Lemmon.) --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Legends. Sept. 7 2006
Format:DVD
How do you ensure somebody's legacy as a hero? In the good old days, you wrote a book. Nowadays, you make a movie -- and if you're lucky and it's really, really successful, you can retrospectively even make legends out of dangerous criminals. Not that that always works, of course. But with two great actors with instant chemistry (Paul Newman and Robert Redford), a script (by William Goldman) bursting with one-liners making the audience bowl over laughing every other minute, without once derailing into slapstick, a director's (George Roy Hill's) ingenious use of the occasion to turn a whole genre on its head, and some of the world's most beautiful locations, filmed by an exceptional cinematographer (Conrad Hall) ... you just may pull it off. Case in point: "Butch and Sundance."

While Butch Cassidy (Robert LeRoy Parker) was known as the Old West's Robin Hood for his charm, masterly planning, avoidance of bloodshed -- he really did claim he'd never shot anyone -- and his stance for settlers' rights vis-a-vis the wealthy cattle barons, Sundance (Henry Longbaugh) had the reputation of a loner; a fast draw repeatedly in and out of prison before even turning twenty-one. After several of their Wild Bunch/Hole in the Wall Gang associates had seen the short end of the stick in various encounters with the law, Butch and Sundance determined things were getting too hot in the West and, unlike the outlaws who not much earlier had stood it out until the end (Billy the Kid, the James Gang and the O.K. Corral gunfighters), decided to head for South America.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent "plus book" Edition Nov. 6 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you don't own this movie in high-def yet, this is the version you want. I've stated in other reviews what a big fan I am of the "plus book" iterations of movies and how the quality differs in the text. THIS MOVIE PLUS BOOK IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
I appreciate how people review the actual movie and their personal take on it. I read them quite often, but I will forgo this and just say the transfer from my DVD copy a few years back to blu-ray is astounding. Don't get me wrong, this is NOT one of those "it looks like they filmed this last week" movies. It does look dated, so I can only imagine how crappy the source material was and the job that they undertook to clean it up to where it is now. The sound is only a slight improvement from the DVD material, here now in DTS HD Master, but what do you really expect from a 40 year old movie? The reading material in front of the disc is what makes these "plus book" editions worth buying, and this one does not disappoint for bits of trivia, an essay on the movie itself, and then the standard micro-biographies of the major players. This a worthwhile purchase for anyone that doesn't own the movie yet, and worth a second look if you're a fan looking to upgrade your edition for collector purposes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Blu-ray... July 30 2011
Format:Blu-ray
BLU-RAY review

No matter if you consider this film the last big studio western or maybe the first of numerous post-westerns to come, this still is one of the funniest, most entertaining movies to come out of Hollywood! Unfortunately though 2oth Fox's Blu-ray definitely falls short to keep up with this pedigree.

Film: 9/10
Picture quality: 4.5/10
Aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (orig.)
Extras: 7/10
- Making of 35'
- The true story 25'
- Commentary by director George Roy Hill, DP Conrad L. Hall and others
- Deleted scene
- Trailer

Image of this Blu-ray is lacking contrast, picture resolution and has some focus problems.
Please see:

1.0 out of 5 stars Do you really like this film? June 16 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie recently and was surprised at how completely unwatchable it was. Robert Redford and Paul Newman mug their way through the action from start to finish, looking much more like self-conscious movie stars than train robbers or gun-slingers of the old west.
"Butch and Sundance" is not completely without interest to the casual observer of American cultural sensibilities, however. The most significant moment in the film by far is the scene where Paul rides his bicycle around a barnyard, flashing his legendary grin for all the world to see. As the dream-like Katherine Ross gazes at him adoringly, we hear B.J. Thomas sing Burt Bacharach's "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head." As I watched this taking place, I realized that I was witnessing the birth of the 1970s.
In spite of such curiosities, "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid" is quite simply one of the most overrated Hollywood films of all time. If you want to see an excellent film from that era about "the old west," I would suggest you get a copy of Robert Altman's "McCabe and Mrs. Miller."

This is a very entertaining movie but certainly not to be believed. Good value for the price but lacks in action content.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the quality expected
After having bought the digitally altered version of "Shane" and being delighted with it, I expected the same quality with "Butch". Sadly it wasn't.
