“Blackthorn” is getting a limited theatrical run in the States on October 7, 2011, but is currently available for rental on VOD. It’s an excellent Western, with some nice, great chase sequences that owes (purposefully, would be my guess) more than a little to the George Roy Hill movie. The film’s signature sequence is, without a doubt, the methodical, deadly chase across the Bolivian Salt Flats. Though Blackthorn’s early visit to a bank ranks a close second, especially when you think that maybe, just maybe, ol Butch might pull out a sidearm and rob the place. He doesn’t, of course, but it’s great to think that he probably could — and get away with it, too.
