Not what I was hoping for

I found 'The Great Train Robbery' for watch on Wikipedia (presumably because it's not very long, but it's longer than 'A Trip To The Moon'), I watched the whole movie, I think it is worth a look but it's not what I was hoping for and I think it is rather overrated

"THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY - THE OUTLAW FIRES INTO THE AUDIENCE Edwin S. Potter's 1903 silent classic 'The Great Train Robbery' was not, as is often erroneously stated, the first narrative film but in its coherent, technically accomplished and genuinely entertaining approach to storytelling it undoubtedly stands out as one of the gems of cinema's infancy. The film has gone on to be considered as America's first action film with a recognisable form, specifically pre-empting the imminent popularity "
