American Outlaws

American Outlaws

Movie: American Outlaws
Director: Les Mayfield
Produced by: Morgan Creek Productions
Released By: Warner Brothers
MPAA Rating: PG13

This loosely fact-based oater attempts to mimic the youthful heartthrobs in Western garb formula of Young Guns, as well as the cheeky humor and some plot elements of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Colin Farrell stars as Jesse James, who returns home from the Civil War to his small hometown to find that a crooked railroad baron has been illegally forcing the residents from the homesteads to make way for a new rail line. Enraged, James leads a band of outlaws including his brother Frank, Cole Younger, and Younger’s brothers Bob and Jim on a criminal spree of bank robbing. Although their Robin Hood-style tactics soon make them local heroes, the James-Younger gang members find themselves pursued by the dogged Allan Pinkerton, the world’s first “private eye.” Along the way, Jesse also finds romance with Zee Mimms, the daughter of a local doctor.
