Blackthorn Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: It's been said that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in a standoff with the Bolivian military in 1908. In BLACKTHORN, Cassidy (Sam Shepard) survived and is quietly living out his years under the name James Blackthorn in a secluded Bolivian village. Tired of his long exile from the U.S. and hoping to see his family again before he dies, Cassidy sets out on the long journey home. But when an unexpected encounter with an ambitious young criminal (Eduardo Noriega) derails his plans, he is thrust into one last adventure, the likes of which he hasn't experienced since his glory days with the Sundance Kid.

Review: We love a good western here at the Legion.  Now, the key to that statement is good western.   There are a lot of films and TV shows in the genre from the camp of the 1950s to the grit of the early 1990s.  This film is one of the best we've seen in a long while.  It gives more lore to Butch Cassidy as an older man and the aftermath of his life.  This one has depth, emotion and definately a fantastic tone.

Interest Range: Western
