I recommend this dvd. It is definitely a family film with nothing objectionable in it. Yet it is not laden with preachy sentiments. Good believable acting from young adults. The story line is a "what if" you were a nephew of Butch Casidy? wouldn't you want to know if he died in South America OR escaped and is living in the United States somehere. What about all that gold? Nice little film. Made in 2008.

Just watch this movie for the first time with my parents. We all enjoyed it. My dad especially liked the old cars. It takes a little while to get used to the idea that this isn't a "modern" time period. But overall is it enjoyable to watch with a good story line and a great ending. It is a good family movie (which are becoming harder and harder to find).
Teens chase notorious outlaw's gold

"Set in 1950s Utah and filmed on location there, "Outlaw Trail: The Treasure of Butch Cassidy" depicts 16-year old Roy Parker's search for the truth about his great-uncle, the infamous real-life Western outlaw Butch Cassidy (the alias of LeRoy Parker). The fatherless youth must overcome the opposition of his determined granddad, who scolds him, "I spent the better part of my life trying to live down the reputation that your hero has laid out for the Parker name and you grow up worshipping him." After a jailbreak engineered by Jess, his best friend, Roy and Jess are joined by two other teens in a chase for Cassidy's buried treasure, pursued by dangerous criminals. Superb cinematography takes full advantage of Utah's rugged scenery in exciting chase sequences by automobile, river raft, steam train, and even airplane. Roy Parker is played by handsome Ryan Kelley, familiar to viewers of the "Smallville" TV series. Only an implausible ending detracts from this entertaining family film, suitable for all ages."

"I liked this enough to order a copy after seeing it on cable one night. A great old fashioned treasure hunt story that is part Hardy Boys, Indiana Jones, and Spin and Marty. Fairly realistic young adult characters for the time period, with avoidance of stereotypes. During three fleeing scenes they would yell "Go!Go!Go!Go!" which is a popular (and somewhat overused) modern expression from military and police shows. Never heard it used prior to about ten years or so ago. But this is easily forgiven and the plot is a good one. And I thought the Butch Cassidy element was refreshingly clever, as his sister and many who knew him including other family members said he survived Bolivia, and of all the outlaws who supposedly survived their own death, Butch is probably the most likely to have actually done this."
