Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was movie made in 1969 and it is a western movie. The director is George Roy Hill, it is a western movie. The movie won a Best Original Screenplay Award and many others.
The story talks about two outlaws in the West called Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid who robbed banks all the time. From time to time, they would rob a train every time they saw it. After doing many robberies, they get chased but a group of six men. Later on they know that they were sent by the owner of the train. They decide to go to Bolivia just to be safe but once they get there, they start robbing banks again. They get in trouble with the law there and they get into many fights. We don’t really know how it ended because the last scene shows Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid running from the law.
Amazing movie, I didn’t know Western movies can be so fascinating. In particular, I loved the story but I don’t know if it was based on a true story or not. But even if it wasn’t, I loved it. What I loved the most is that it wasn’t too long and it kept me asking myself what is coming next. It was full of action and that is what I think made is so great. I love action movies. The movie was like a comedy and adventure movie all together.
People who would maybe be more interested in it would be people who know something about the west . And if you also know something about Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. But not only them, also people who like adventure movies would definitely like it.
I didn’t know the actors, it was the first time seeing them. But after I watched the movie ,I loved the actors and I think they did a great job. My favorite actor was Sundance Kid, he was hilarious and he has great acting skills. All the cast knew how to bring a scene to life, there are some movies where you feel like they are acting and it doesn’t feel real at all. A movie is supposed to portray something that might happen in life or happens in life and it is up to the actors to make it look real.
In conclusion, I would recommend watching this movie because to be honest, It is one of the best movies I have watched so far. It is a mixture of different genres; a little romance, comedy and adventure. It is not long so you can’t be bored while watching it. If you like western movies, you should definitely watch Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
