  • Watching Shepard work his pony down a snaking mountain pass, playing a mandolin and singing the blues, or seeing him sitting, stone-still, beneath a railroad water tank, waiting for something to happen - these are scenes to be cherished, from an actor who has found the soul of the character he's playing. show more

  • The actor (Shepard) delivers a beautifully understated, world-weary turn that largely makes up for the slow-paced film's longueurs, and which in a better film could be described as iconic. show more

  • With Paul Newman gone, you couldn't ask for a better senior-citizen representation of Butch Cassidy than Shepard. In his best performance since "The Right Stuff'' turned him into a reluctant movie star, Shepard makes Blackthorn worth seeing. show more

    I can sum up this movie in three words, BORING, BORING, and BORING. Don\'t beleive all the good reviews, they\'re from those artsy types (ore more accurately the artsy wannabes) who see good cinematorgraphy and think OMG I\'ve got to give this a good review even though it bored me to death. This western is boring and draggy, torture to watch, and the the intended plot never hits its mark.
