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)

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.
Highlights:
- 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).

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!!!!

Hollywood regales us with yet another telling of the saga of those vicious, murdering, thugs who became America's greatest demi-gods. the James-Younger gang. And , Yikes!, did the critics and western purists hate it. "An inaccurate depiction of the real west" they wept and wailed. Well, thank God for that. The real west was a place of unrelieved and unrewarding hard work. Grim, filthy, and just plain disgusting. We fans of westerns want the myth of the romantic old west and director Les Mayfield gives us that. He glosses over the unsavory reality of the gang and portrays our guys as high-spirited rapscallions. Boys just wanna have fun ya know. Colin Farrell joins the ranks of impossibly handsome leading men(Tyronne Power and Brad Pitt were two others) to play the less than pretty Jesse(The real Jesse was weasel-faced). Farrell is too contemporary to be convincingly "Wild West"(As is all of the cast and the movie itself) but he is always exciting to watch. You
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.

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!
