Butch and Sundance: The Early Days

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

As a star-less 'prequel' to the Goldman/Hill, Redford/ Newman moneyspinner, this was always a commercial no-hoper, but early signposted ambitions to dig beneath its predecessor's ingratiating lyricism don't really pan out either. Allan Burns' script contents itself with episodic variations on its model, while notions of a myth in-the-making hang a little too heavily on the self-conscious dialogue, and Lester merely pumps up the quirk quotient.
