Movie review of The assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford

The assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford - 3.5/10
Directed by Andrew Dominik
Cast - Brad Pitt,Casey Affleck,Sam Rockwell,Mary Louise Parker

Plot Summary
Robert Ford who idolizes Jesse James from young, tries to join James' gang of outlaws and becomes close to him. But as he becomes closer, he begins to hate his idol and wants him to be captured.

The fucking title pretty much tells the whole fucking story. In fact by reading the whole fucking title out loud is more exciting than watching this movie! 2hours and 40mins of sheer fucking boredom. watching grass grow should be more entertaining. If you want to know more about Jesse James or Robert Ford, I suggest you just go to wikipedia and read about it then watching this movie. Cinematography was ok. Editing wasn't that good though. The acting also was so so. This would have been a good movie if there were some action or good shooting scenes and also not making it too fucking long. The first 1/2 hour, I thought I was watching a movie directed by Kevin Costner. Fuck! Then the title would have been THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD WHILE DANCING WITH WOLVES. hahaha. (<--- Editor: "lame." :P)
Avoid this movie at all costs.
