The one complaint I have for this film may not even be a dig at the film itself, but what the American mentality was after Jesse James was killed.

To me, that would be the reason to make another Jesse James film, but I don't feel the irony here.
Perhaps not the action-packed feature some may originally thought they'd get when they heard about Brad Pitt starring in a Western as Jesse James, but it turns out for the best.
