I really wanted to watch this movie in theatres, but I never got around to it. I just hope "Young Guns" comes out as an import, at some point. I'd hit that, too.

that would be amazing... one of the best Earp bros films I think there is... much better than the Kevin Cosner version. Plus Kilmer was a much better Doc Holiday than Dennis Quaid.

Sorry for stealing the OP's thread...

I saw this movie and it was fantastic - it held me spellbound for its long 3 hour duration. However, I am not so sure of its mass appeal. It is not a typical western but is rather a psychological study of Jesse James and his assassin - and the turmoil they went through. As such, there is very little action and much dialogue and the pacing is masterful, yet very slow for those looking for a western action movie.
