Even though the movie put me to sleep, the leading performance of Casey Affleck as Robert Ford is SO good that the movie deserves a passing grade. The film also offers terrific insight into the life of Jesse James. The movie is definitely too long, however. 160 minutes is just too long for a movie that moves along this slowly. It's the first western where I've ever fallen asleep during the viewing. I mean 3:10 to Yuma was slow as well but it was really exciting at the same time. How do you make a dull film involving Jesse James anyway? Anyway, overall it's passable because the last act is SO good and the performance of Casey Affleck is incredible.
