Movie Review: Blackthorn (2011)

I didn't really know what to expect from this movie. I read the summary and it had good actors so I gave it a watch. The basic premiss is that Butch Cassidy did not die in the shootout with the Bolivian army as we once thought. He has been hiding out in the hills and finally decides to go home. There are some great aspects to this movie from the rugged yet fashionable costumes and the beautiful horses. The great casting of actors that actually look like young and old versions of the same man. The high plains and mountains of Bolivia as a breathtaking backdrop. The feelings of what it means to live by a strong moral code. The loneliness of the outlaw life. It was a pleasantly surprising movie and one that I would recommend to all. Good entertainment and some great lingering philosophical thoughts.
