      Prev Next

      Perhaps the least western Western ever made - and that's not a good sort of singularity.

      Cinematic aerophagia

      When Ford finally pulls the trigger, it's a relief as the flick's final ten minutes spin into actually interesting terrain

      Full Review | Original Score: C- | Feb 22, 2008's got a title that perfectly matches its subject matter: They're both too long by half.

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Jan 25, 2008

      Moseying along for 160 minutes, this revisionist western by writer-director Andrew Dominik makes a wan attempt to present the Jesse James legend as the dawn of celebrity culture in America.

      This watchable but indulgent curio blings up the petty vanities and ambitions of the criminal class, and lays greater themes in their graves.

      Compared to Walter Hill's 1980 movie The Long Riders, also about the James gang, this feels an underpowered affair. Indeed, compared to Dominik's own previous movie, Chopper (2000), it is impossibly meek.

      The main problem of many is that writer-director Andrew Dominik doesn't know if he wants to deflate the outlaw myth or embellish it.

      Full Review | Oct 20, 2007

      A bleached-out dreariness and lethargic pace drains this challenging film of much of its impact.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Oct 19, 2007

      The one thing you're not supposed to do during a Western is doze off.

      Full Review | Oct 12, 2007

      The movie is scaled too big visually and too small emotionally.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Oct 12, 2007

      Goes on and on and on and on.

      A better title might have been Jesse James in the Age of Pop Therapy.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Oct 11, 2007

      I love the tone writer/director Andrew Dominik establishes in the film; it's the dragging-it-out-to-160-minutes part that gets me down.

      Who would have imagined that a biopic about Jesse James could be so boring?

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Oct 5, 2007

      Mostly ponderous, despite the unceasingly beautiful imagery.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Oct 5, 2007

      The story drifts aimlessly toward its foregone conclusion, hitting a few interesting notes along the way but never gelling into a coherent narrative.

      Full Review | Oct 5, 2007

      Everything about The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is longer than it needs to be. Its title, for one thing. Its duration -- two hours and 40 minutes! -- for another.
