    Infamous Wild West robbers, do one too many robberies, authorities come after them, move to Bolivia, same again.
    A fantastic "buddy" film making two legendary criminals very like-able. Paul Newman is the charming schemer whilst Robert Redford the pretty but deadly one. Superb chemistry between the actors make this fun & of course the ending is moving & iconic.
    Not the grittiest of Westerns
    but a really entertaining watch. Expand

    The plot with the slow pace and elegant design the best thing in the movie, the main characters, who are perfectly played by Redford and Newman,, conveying to the viewer a relationship of equilibrium and friendship between them

    George Roy Hill's 1969 film moves with steady, stupid grace from oozy sentimentality to nihilistic violence.

    This good movie is buried beneath millions of dollars that were spent on "production values" that wreck the show.

    Note-perfect performances, a screenplay steeped in both nostalgia and a timely sense of insight, and anti-heroes you can't help but love.
