Not that it matters, but most of it is true.
In late 1890s Wyoming, Butch Cassidy is the affable, clever, talkative leader of the outlaw Hole in the Wall Gang. His closest companion is the laconic dead-shot "Sundance Kid". As the west rapidly becomes civilized, the law finally catches up to Butch, Sundance and their gang. Chased doggedly by a special posse, the two decide to make their way to South America in hopes of evading their pursuers once and for all.

One of the all-time great westerns.

Here we've got a nice old western where our protagonists are robbers and murderers. But hey, they're so damn fun to watch. Honestly, the biggest upside to this movie is that Paul Newman and Robert Redford are both great in their performances. These two form a duo that is always entertaining.

My issue though, is that we get a lot of boring, or at least too long, scenes in the first half. Things do pick up a lot more once they go to Bolivia. Just make sure you go into this for the pair's dialogue and you'll probably enjoy yourself.
