The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert (2007)

Robert Ford, who's idolized Jesse James since childhood, tries hard to join the reforming gang of the Missouri outlaw, but gradually becomes resentful of the bandit leader.


- Nice cinematography
- Strong Perfomances by the two leads ( Pitt & Affleck)
- Many historic correct facts, so you actually learn something by watching this movie
- nice music


- really slow pace and an overlong run-time
- a bit boring sometimes because the movie tries to stay as realistic as possible, based on historic facts without too many action scenes
- lacks a bit of tension in some scenes

If you like watching biographys & dramas, it's definitely recommended. If you are unpatient and love action movies with many fast-paced scenes, stay away from it. ;)

My Rating: 7.5/10
