Viktor Prentovski’s review published on Letterboxd:
After "The Sting", I had really high expectations for this one, the previous effort by Paul Newman and Robert Redford, of course, directed by George Roy Hill.
However, despite some positives, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid never managed to woo me like its successor did.
This is an enjoyable movie, no doubt, but that's mostly due to the amazing chemistry between the lead duo, Paul Newman and Robert Redford. They just play off of eachother and ooze cool.
Although it's cool, the story is definitely lacking, and that's the part I admire most about movies - a good story well told. What we get are several vignettes that are mostly interesting, but don't amount to an amazing experience as a whole, at least for me.
I wanted to like this one more, but it was not meant to be. Oh, but that bicycle scene? Amazing!
