'Butch cassidy and the Sundance KId" was made to perfection. Paul Newman and Robert Redford had fun with their parts and they really make it a great movie. This will in time only be considered a "FIVE STAR MOVIE".

This is formatted for UK, Europe use (Region 2) and may not play for you. OPL needs to be much more careful about this.

Brilliant classic western. Funny, exciting plot with original twists and great chemistry between two great actors, Redford and Newman. Must see!

Given the title and not remembering when I last saw it, I expected a lot of western type action and I was disappointed. It is an ok western, but I guess given its title and the 2 popular bad guys, I expected more depth of plot and action. It is ok, but don't expect a great film, if you like westerns.

Very entertaining film, the highlight definitely being the legendary rapport between Redford and Newman.The only thing that was a bit of a letdown was the pacing, which ground almost to a halt with a couple of the musical montages which were pretty much unneccessary for the development of the film. Other than that, a very superior movie; really demonstrates the charisma of the two principal actors.

This is a superior but dated western with great performances from Newman and Redford. The story unfolds well and the interaction between the two stars is the main focus. The action, although plentiful, is underwhelming, due to being an older film. The dialogue between the two stars is the real highlight here. Worth watching.

Fantastic film with a DVD loaded with extras. Amazing to see a Hollywood film of this era that was an accurate depiction of that era. The camaraderie between Redford and Newman is incredible and it's too bad they didn't work together more.
