Down to principle I dont like the way this film has been treated. Funded by a shared investment one group of the investors have pulled out because the film is to made as an epic telling the details of Jesse James life. Investors who put in $20m are upset that the films lacks gun-slinging action and its long title which means that the film may see a limited release. The film maybe very good or very poor, I dont know, but this shows how money influences what we watch and not we choose to see. If the investors wanted to invest in a gun-slinging cowboy film they shouldn't have invested in this one and left it to someone who wanted to tell the really story of Jesse James.
