is a thoroughly decent western that takes up where
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
left off. There's no Newman or Redford, of course. Instead, actor/playwright Sam Shepard is a grizzled, bewhiskered Butch, who somehow escaped the Bolivian shoot-out in which he was reportedly killed. Twenty years later, he goes by the name of James Blackthorn and is living quietly on a remote Bolivian ranch. But he has to take up his guns again when he crosses paths with a Sundance-style kid (Eduardo Noriega) with stolen money in his saddlebags, and half of Bolivia hard on his heels to get hold of it. Stephen Rea plays a hangdog ex-Pinkerton detective, and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, from TV's
Game of Thrones
, portrays the young Butch in brief flashbacks that link past with present. The film plods at times but, by and large, it's a gripping watch. With westerns rarer than hen's teeth, and decent westerns even rarer, this is certainly one that genre fans should seek out.
Butch Cassidy lives in secluded exile in a remote Bolivian village, having survived his supposed last stand. After years away from home, he decides the time has come to return to his family in America, but on the way, he runs into an ambitious young outlaw and is drawn into one last criminal adventure. Western, starring Sam Shepard and Eduardo Noriega.
