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

When Ford finally pulls the trigger, it's a relief as the flick's final ten minutes spin into actually interesting terrain
January 25, 2008's got a title that perfectly matches its subject matter: They're both too long by half.

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.
December 1, 2007
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.
November 30, 2007
While well-crafted and beginning and ending well, for the most part it's like waiting for a tumbleweed to blow across an airless prairie.

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.

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

The one thing you're not supposed to do during a Western is doze off.
October 12, 2007
The movie is scaled too big visually and too small emotionally.
October 12, 2007
Goes on and on and on and on.

A better title might have been Jesse James in the Age of Pop Therapy.
October 7, 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?
October 5, 2007
Mostly ponderous, despite the unceasingly beautiful imagery.
