Butch And Sundance: The Early Days

1

Beautifully shot western prequel...

Richard Lester’s beautifully shot western prequel is notable mainly for the eerie resemblance Tom Berenger and William Katt bear to Newman and Redford.

There’s something sweetly harmless in its Dukes Of Hazzard-esque bank jobs and train robberies, in which only hats are in danger (of being shot off heads). The Early Days also pays its dues to the original’s freewheeling, anti-establishment vibe.

But the leads’ easygoing bromance can’t quite mask that this is a clutch of slapstick vignettes in search of a storyline.
