Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and The Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), the shotgun and pistol shooters, are the leaders of their bandit gang. Butch Cassidy acts like a front-man while making plans and to loot while the latter one is a great shooter. They cover up each other while shooting and looting. They backup each other. They know nothing besides looting. It’s hard for them to support their life with other jobs. They earn their livelihood by looting banks and trains. However, they are not happy and their life is not safe. They are always sought after for their crime by several government and city shooters and other forces.

While running from these forces and try to escape the wanted areas Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid are left to a two member bandit gang now. So, they travel to different places and countries and continue the same job. Etta Place (Katharine Ross), Sundance Kid’s sweetheart, joins their gang for sometime. She sees no signs of these two men getting into other jobs like farming or animal rearing, so the situation forces her to leave them.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid are trapped by a large number of forces while lunching. These two men backup and cover up each other to shoot to death lots of these government shooters. Other dozens and dozens of shooters come to help reminders and trap these two skilled bandits to death.

The ending of the movie is perfect. The two men do nothing magical to save them. They fight up to their courage and skill to defend their life. These two injured men know they are trapped outside by additional shooters but they still seem busy to make plans to what to do next after they get out of the place shooting to death all the forces. They come out with guns in each hands to die with 100s of bullets. The movie is over with the best the best thing that could end it. I rate it 3.5/5.
