As others have mentioned here, this isn't a typical shoot 'em up - this is a story and not an action film. I especially liked how the characters were portrayed in the film and how well the actors gave that portrayal.
One thing that especially struck me is the cinematography - the great quality of it reminded me of Open Range's cinematography, just because the quality is so excellent. The sequence with the train robbery and in particular how the train's headlight plays across and thru the trees is beautiful, as are other parts.

this is more than just a movie about the killing of Jesse James.the
story is about the event leading up to the title and the aftermath.it's
a well done movie with great performances from Brad Pitt as James,Sam
Rockwell as Charlie Ford,and Casey Affleck as Robert Ford.the
supporting performances are also very good.this is not an action
film,but a deliberately paced character study.the film is well written
and has some very good dialogue.it also has a voice over
narration,which i thought worked well with this movie.it does tend a
bit toward slowness,but only for brief moments and only
occasionally,and is never boring.the story and characters are quite
compelling.i found myself quite engrossed in the story and the
characters.for me,The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert
Ford is a 5/5

Great Movie! Those two words best describe this movie...I found that when I was watching this I was glued to the tv and felt an overall good feeling when the movie was over.So good that right after watching this film I had to go on the net and do some research on the story..I even went on to order the book which I am currently enjoying.Now when I start researching a movie, reading the book and so on that tells it must have been great.

It bothers me that so many people I have talked to found the movie slow and boring...This movie is simply not about gun slinging, horse racing shoot everyone up typical Western,it's simply a good story.It's sad people need explosions and fast paced scenes to enjoy a show nowadays.So to anyone who enjoys a great story then this is the movie to watch...trust me.

If you love cinema and are open minded enough... if you are thrilled by film-makers pushing the bounderies a little more... if you are in awe of gorgeous cinematography (and I'm not simply talking of pretty pictures but exploring composition and lighting)... if you do not need constant thrills in order to keep your interest... and if you are always searching for a fresh and original vision... then this film is for you! NOTE: This is NOT a typical western so if you dislike the genre, you should still consider it.
Pay special attention to the night time train robbery sequence. It is one of the most outstanding sequences in recent cinema.

Long rambling narrative, Affleck is particularly irritating as Bob Ford, assassin of Jesse James. Well photographed (some of it in western Canada). Brad Pitt sleepwalks through his role of the famous outlaw. Very disappointing movie, should have been much better.

This is quite unlike anything one would normally expect from a western genre picture and a Brad Pitt vehicle. For those more in tune with more slow-paced, psychological dramas. This is closer to European sensibility than Hollywood. Cinematography is both ground-breaking in its style, and breathtaking in its beauty. If you have time on your hands and are in a meditative mood... let the mood envelope you and appreciate this, in many ways, daring production.

This is a modern masterpiece.

Not your regular shootem up western, in fact it's not a western, it's a character driven story with great performances from its actors. Photography that will make you book a ticket to Canada's western provinces. Keep an eye's open for more things from this director. Put this in your collection Blu-ray transfer is very good a little weak on the xtras, but keep in mind it's the movie not the xtras. Ron Jr from Toronto.
