A good overview of the life of Jesse James. Enjoyable to watch!
8 July 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie/documentary shows the viewer a look in the life of Jesse James. With interviews, analysis, and comments about his life and his thoughts, you get a good idea of what happened there. There are multiple views regarding him, so it's not seen from just one viewpoint. There are theories explained about the mysteries that surrounds him, about his thoughts, reasons etc. It was enjoyable to watch and gives an idea how it was in the States around the time he lived. It was not super exciting, but the film goes in a steady speed and gives a good idea of what he had done and why. A negative point I can say the scenes of Jesse James were sometimes played a bit "fake". Don't watch this are interested what is the story of his life. A 7/10 for this one.
