"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" is a classic within its genre, but other westerns have certainly aged better.

Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid mag einer der grossen New Hollywood Klassiker sein und hat das Team Newman & Redford zusammengebracht. Als ich ihn aber jetzt noch einmal sah, kam er mir schwerfällig und ziemlich enttäuschend vor. Vor allem vermisse ich, dass sich George Roy Hills Film überhaupt zu dem bekennt, was er ist: Einem Western! William Goldmans Drehbuch aber versucht permanent, die "niedlichen" Aspekte der Geschichte zu betonen. Dabei beginnt alles so vielversprechend: Butch (Paul Newman) und Sundance (Robert Redford) führen eine Bande von Zugräubern an. Harriman, der Tycoon der Eisenbahngesellschaft, versucht, sie zu stellen, doch die beiden flüchten nach Bolivien, wo sie Banken überfallen.

Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and The Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) rob banks together. Falling into the rapids filled with rocks and emerging without getting hurt was somewhat impossible.

Legendary outlaws Butch and Sundance rob one too many trains and an elite force of lawmen force them to relocate to Bolivia. Yet another of Hollywood's romantic reinterpretations of history featuring outlaws who are lovable rogues who don't want to hurt anyone, George Roy Hill's classic western actually features little in the way of gunplay (although the final shoot out is well worth waiting for). The core of the film is Butch and Sundance's enduring friendship and as such it concentrates far more on warmth and humour than bullets and blood; in fact you have to wait til near the end before a single shot is fired. Often when two major stars are paired up, ego prevails and one-upmanship can ruin any potential on-screen chemistry, but once in a while two stars can strike up chemistry that …
