Historical western dramatizes the rise and fall of outlaws Jesse James and Cole Younger.

Outlaws Jesse James and Cole Younger set out to rob banks and trains across the Midwest with their band of brothers in the aftermath of the Civil War. Mr. Rixley, a Pinkerton detective, is hot on their trail, working to spread the word about James and company before they can attempt their next heist; as a result, a planned bank robbery in Northfield, Minnesota goes horribly awry when a public warning leads to the vault being secured with a timer ahead of time. A masterfully edited slow-mo shootout ensues, with no shortage of broken glass and injured horses; the gang is wounded and the loyalty between James and Younger faces its greatest test to date.
