Critic Reviews of "Blackthorn"The New RepublicJune 19, 2013
This story, parboiled out of one of the most memorable Westerns, is supported all the way by Gil's directing.Time OutApril 10, 2012
Shepard's crusty charisma gives this dignified genre effort its pulse: a growl-off between his Butch and Jeff Bridges's Rooster Cogburn is surely the next chapter.Detroit NewsOctober 28, 2011
It ain't Paul Newman and Robert Redford, but it ain't bad.St. Louis Post-DispatchOctober 21, 2011
In place of a rousing adventure, "Blackthorn" is a haunting ode.Miami HeraldOctober 20, 2011
Although Shepard is perfectly cast as a world-weary outlaw reluctantly drawn into one more adventure, the movie doesn't quite justify the resuscitation of classic film characters for another outing.Washington PostOctober 14, 2011
"Blackthorn" feels less like a proper sequel to "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," which it purports to be, than a coattail rider.DeadspinJune 22, 2013
It's a perfect part for Shepard, and "Blackthorn" provides considerable pleasure just in watching him ride a horse and bark around.Daily StarMarch 14, 2013
With Paul Newman no longer with us, no other actor could have fitted so snugly into the legendary outlaw's old boots.Urban CinefileJune 18, 2012
Sam Shepard delivers a terrific, dry performance as the older Butch Cassidy, his stoic view of life honed by years of reflection and self realisation. It's a well written screenplay and director Mateo Gil makes the most of itObserver (UK)April 14, 2012
Offers a fascinating imaginary sequel to the story of Butch and Sundance.Electric SheepApril 13, 2012
A Western in possession of a social conscience, but without lapsing into preaching or patronising, this is an unassuming film in some ways, but ultimately it's self-assured, elegiac and sometimes strikingly beautiful.
