5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Movie with a great Cast!!! July 14, 2002
Yes, I have heard that "American Outlaws" isn't always historically accurate! But you know what? Who cares? It's a terrific movie, that takes you on a wild and hilarious ride with Jesse James and his gang. All the actors are well-cast and did a great job portraying their characters, although - in my mind - Colin Farrell (the next big thing!) and Ali Larter (Hollywood's most underrated actress) do stand out among the others! If you are looking for a history lesson - go to the library. But if you are looking for a fun movie with lots of action, a great cast, good script, a bit of romance, and some truly unforgettable moments, then don't miss out on "American Outlaws"!!! It's become one of my all-time favorite movies! Plus, the DVD has really great bonus features ... trailers, tv spots, photo galleries, DVD Rom features, and 4 great featurettes - check out "How to be an Outlaw" for some nice shots of the guys in cowboy camp ... showing off their muscles during what would later be know as the hottest summer in Texas' history :o)

By Mr. JKW
American Outlaws, one of the first Westerns of the new millennium, is an adaptation of the life of legendary 1800s outlaw bank robber Jesse James and his band of men, the James-Yonger Gang.
It's the story of "tradition vs. progress." Following the Civil War, James and friends returned home to the farm where the "big bad" railroad was trying to expand west by buying out all the farmland from the people in its path. The people of James' town did not want to go quietly so a huge war begins between the farmers (with James and friends as their warriors) and the railroad tycoon when the railroad "goons" begin to rough up the townsfolk.
Overall, though there are a few historical inaccuracies, the movie is a fun action romp (tons of humor) through the old west with cowboys, LOTS of gun battles, stage coach robberies, train robberies, saloons, horses and lovely southern belles.
- TONS of shoot outs/gun battles (on trains, banks, battlefields, etc)
- Daring escapes
- Hilarity with wanted posters
Overall, this was a great movie to catch, harkening back to the days of the good old Westerns. The action was solid and the humor was "just right." This was a solid way to spend an evening (or afternoon).

5.0 out of 5 stars American outlaws June 18, 2005
By Hawkins
Wow what a great movie!!!!! This movie is jammed with cowboy action that just gets better and better! When you watch it you will be introduced to Jessie and his mom and Bob which Jessie learned how to shoot from. They're are more characters who show up along the way. They're constenly having problems with thier enemy putting up wanted signs and hanging farmers that are just plane innocent. They have a huge problem with them sneeking up on them every second and attacking. The one thing they don't do is run away, even if thier in the middle of robbing a bank or store they will countinue what their doing and fight back at the same time. It kind of makes them look like the enemy when they go up to banks and try to rob them, But thier still the good guys in the movie. I think this movie deserves 5 stars! This is a great movie for all ages. Families that love western movies will defiantly enjoy this!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Charming, fun, and not even remotely historical July 26, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must immediately say that this film is a whole lot of fun. The actors are young, cute, talented, and obviously having a great time. Colin Farrell and Gabriel Macht have clearly captured the spirit of the James brothers; Scott Caan has his father's looks, charm and very good handle on the boldness and ruthlessness of Cole Younger; Will McCormack is a scene-stealing comic, and Ali Larter is--well, she's very pretty. The show is helped out immeasurably by veterans Timothy Dalton and Kathy Bates. (Bates would have been an even more natural choice for the James boys' mother if the part had been written closer to history, which it wasn't.) There are some wonderful action/adventure Indiana Jones-y stunts and the pace of the film is brisk. It's a Saturday afternoon kind of movie--fun, good-looking,and not mentally taxing.
My problem was that I bought the film to give me some insight into the history of the James Gang, and if you are looking for reality, this isn't it. It's a combination of half-truth, made-up-out-of-whole-cloth falsehood, and so many anachronisms we lost count. Anachronisms can be charming--as "A Knight's Tale" illustrates so well-- and part of the movie's charm is the 21st century Saved-by-the-Bell language that these kids bring to their roles as famous desperadoes. If you know anything about the James Gang, the Civil War, or the history of western expansion, parts of this movie will drive you crazy. A partial list:
1. The opening scene takes place during the last days of the Civil War with Frank James taking out a Gatling Gun with his sharpshooter's Winchester rifle, a' la' Sergeant York. Gatling guns were not used in the Civil War (except as a test case), and Frank's Winchester is an 1880's invention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the old west November 14, 2005
This movie is such an awesome movie, however you need to watch it with people who are willing to actually "listen" to it. The humor is hilarious but its sarcastic under the breath humor so if your not listening for it you won't hear it.

I thought this movie was great. Especially for the ladies, these cowboys are mighty fine! And this movie came out before Collin Ferrel's bad boy roles he plays in videos now.

Excellent anytime movie! 2 thumbs up!
