This movie is long and slow moving, but in the end it turns out to be quite powerful. Those who have the patience to ride it out, will be rewarded for their efforts. This is not your typical action based, shoot out filled western. "The Assassination of Jesse James" is really a psychological drama that just happens to be set in the old west. Most teens probably won't have the patience for this film, and the brutal violence and sexual references should keep away most kids under 15.
