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.

Format: DVD
Perhaps the most common misconception about this film is that it is a western. It's not and those who criticize its "flower power" music or non-western sentiments don't understand what this film is really trying to say.
It's actually, more of an anti-western. First of all, it takes place at the turn of the twentieth century. The old west is dead but our two anti-heroes (Butch and Sundance) haven't figured this out. The movie is full of symbolism indicating the changing times (the bicycle, for example). Butch even muses about adapting to the new era when he briefly talks about the two of them enlisting in the army, actually getting real jobs, and buying a ranch. But he always goes back to his old way of thinking in the end. This is shown symbolically when Butch tosses the bicycle aside. Because of this, he is doomed to die like the old west. Butch and Sundance are in pursuit of the old west at the same time the new era is chasing them (in the form of faceless lawmen always at a distance). They finally end up in Bolivia, a backwards land that seems to suit them. But even there, their fate eventually catches up with them.

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.

I don't like westerns, but this isn't a traditional western.

The film has a stylized look featuring photographs and a sepia tinge in many of the scenes to remind us that we are looking at an old story. I didn't care for it, but I understand why the choice was made.

I remember seeing the film in the early 70s on TV. Our newspaper's film critic had a ratings system consisting of excellent, very good, good, average and poor. He invented a new rating just for this movie: marvelous. I have no idea why I remember that.

The movie won four Oscars:

Cinematography - Conrad L. Hall (Cool Hand Luke, American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Marathon Man)
This was deserved. Some of the chase scenes were spectacular.

Original Song - Burt Bacharach/Hal David
Raindrops is certainly memorable, but I don't think it fit the feel of the movie and shouldn't have been included.

Score - Burt Bacharach
Good overall, but could have done without raindrops and some of the music used during the montage scenes.

Screenplay - William Goldman (Heat, Princess Bride, Marathon Man, Absolute Power, Misery)
Thoroughly deserved. The dialogue carried the movie and Goldman knew when to shut up.

I loved the movie as a child. I'm not quite sure why.
