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).
can't take your eyes off him and he has all the charisma the real Jesse must have had to make men follow him unto their deaths. The entire
cast is good, especially the supporting actors, some of the best character actors around today. And Mayfield understood something that few directors of westerns ever understood, that women like westerns as much as men. He gives the distaff side of the audience a heroine to be
proud of: fresh-faced Ali Larter as Jesse's spunky wife, Zee. No whiny pacifist schoolmarm in a starched corset. She can hold her own with any of the men and she engineers Jesse's escape from the prison train(One of the most exciting scenes ever in a western). "American
Outlaws" IS full of inaccuracies. And it has so many mistakes you could make a parlor game out of them.Read more ›
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!
