Here's hoping James Mangold's big, raucous, and ultrabloody remake of 3:10 to Yuma leads some moviegoers to check out Delmer Daves's beautifully lean, half-century-old original. That classic Western spun a tale of captured outlaw Ben Wade (Glenn Ford)--deadly but disarmingly affable--and the small-time rancher and family man, Dan Evans (Van Heflin), desperate enough to accept the job of helping escort the badman to Yuma prison. Wade, knowing that his gang will be along at any moment to spring him, works at persuading the ultimately lone deputy to accept a bribe, turn his back on "duty," and go home safe and rich to his family. That the outlaw has come to admire his captor intriguingly complicates the suspense.All of the above applies in the new 3:10, but it takes a lot more huffing and puffing to get Wade (Russell Crowe this time) and Evans (Christian Bale) into position for the showdown. Mostly, more is less.

To Mangold's credit, his movie doesn't traffic in facile irony or postmodern detachment; it aims to be a straight-up Western and deliver the excitement and charisma the genre's fans are starved for. But recognizing that contemporary viewers might be out of touch with the bedrock simplicity and strength of the genre--not to mention its code of honor--Mangold has supplied both Evans and Wade with a plethora of backstory and "motivations." At the overblown action climax, the crossfire of personal agendas is almost as frenetic as the copious gunplay. (By that point the movie has killed more people than the Lincoln County War.) Best thing about the remake is Russell Crowe's Ben Wade, a Scripture-quoting career villain with an artist's eye and a curiously principled sense of whom and when to murder. As his second-in-command, Ben Foster fairly pirouettes at every opportunity to commit mayhem, and Peter Fonda contributes a fierce portrait of an old Wade adversary turned bounty hunter for the Pinkerton detective agency. --Richard T. Jameson

Russel Crowe has somewhat of a bad reputation. In this movie he is displays this with a great deal of expertise. Crowe was excellent portraying the role of Ben Wade, a very mean outlaw who has little or no feelings for the well being of others. Sounds like a typical outlaw but he is not. Christian Bale plays a dirt poor farmer with part of a leg missing and about to lose his farm. In desperate need of money He agrees to get Crowe on a train headed to Uma, so Wade can be tryed and then hanged. Bale plays his part almost as well as Crowe. It is the best western to come to the big screen in a long time. This movie is an award winner.

This is one of my favorite Westerns. I have long loved the old version with Glenn Ford as the outlaw Wade, and approached this remake with a little trepidation. No need. Russell Crowe is every bit as good, and more chilling than Glenn Ford, and Christian Bale is great as the poor farmer. Even if you don't like Westerns, this is an excellent thriller with real characters who surprise you and actually develop during the movie. This one has it all: atmosphere, place, action, suspense, and character.

3:10 to Yuma is about Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) and his band of thugs who have repeatedly orchestrated several robberies in Arizona in the late 1800s. It is also about Dan Evans (Christian Bale), a self-deprecating rancher who is doing what he can within his own ethics to get his family by, but he is failing. Evans first meets Wade when he and his sons witness one of the robberies. Soon, Evans visits the town of Bisbee alone to confront a man he is in arrears with and he happens upon Wade and his gang again, who had drawn the authorities out of town after having Wade's top goon Charlie Prince (Ben Foster) inform the authorities of the latest robbery and saying that Wade's group headed elsewhere. Evans leaves and meets the Bisbee authorities when they see him helping a wounded bounty hunter, who Wade and his men shot during their robbery. Evans informs them that Wade and his men are indeed in Bisbee. Evans actually plays an active role in apprehending Wade, and he agrees to assist in escorting Wade to the town of Contention, where Wade will take a prison train to his inevitable execution for his many murders and robberies. That train is the 3:10 to Yuma and the movie's primary focus involves the ride to Contention and the various encounters with Wade's pursuing gang and many other enemies along the way.

3:10 to Yuma is a well polished piece of western cinema. If Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven was an elegy to the once alive and well American genre then I guess 3:10 to Yuma is an fitting in memoriam. It's a remake actually, although almost unrecognizable from the original 1957 western. Other than what amounts to being a fairly unsatisfying conclusion, 3:10 to Yuma is one of the best films of 2007 so far. There are many things to praise here.

The story is first-rate exposing the Old West for what it really was--totally lawless and less than romantic. The casting was spot on from the leads to all the bit parts. The old towns, old coots even the coolies on the railway line added to the whole picture.

The problem is (SPOILER ALERT) the ending is so ridiculous. We're supposed to believe not only does one man fight off about 50 guys shooting at him from all angles but that his prisoner is going to suddenly follow him to the prison train while his posse attempts to free him. I'm sorry, but the ending was a HUGE letdown and seemed so Hollywood after the entire movie tried to prove it wasn't just another run-of-the-mill Western.

The extras are great as they show how these Western towns were built and furnished among other things.

Sadly, this was a 5-star movie until the last 20 minutes.

This is a terrific film! There is plenty of action, great locations with gritty and realistic sets and costumes. But what stands out are the performances by Russell Crowe as Ben Wade and Christian Bale as Dan Evans. Each tortured in their own way, Crowe and Bale give these characters real flesh and bones with their own complex emotional life. They are supported by an excellent cast of characters. As for the film score, Marco Beltrami has penned a score that beautifully reflects all the emotional and physical aspects of this film. His homage to the maestro Ennio Morricone is apparent but Beltrami has put his own stamp on the soundscape he has created. Director James Mangold("Walk The Line") has given us a stellar addition to the Western genre.

First of all, I'm not a western movie fan AT ALL... but... this one is actually very good most probably due to the great performances of Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. The flow of the script is shady at times, but the final product is brilliant. Even though I insisted that I hate western movies, it was highly recommended to me and I am glad it was. You don't really need to be a western lover to enjoy this movie (it might help a little, but not a great deal). It's very entertaining and the cast is outstanding, a good recipe for a good movie!

3:10 to Yuma is a remake of a 1950's western about a farmer (Christian Bale) ravished by poverty, drought and humiliation who one day accepts a $200 pay day to transport a dangerous prisoner (Russel Crowe) to the train station that leads to Yuma. Exciting and suspenseful throughout, this is easliy one of the best westerns done in the past 20 years, probably the best one since Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven. The acting by the two leads is sublime and the action non-stop. Recommended for anybody, even non-western fans!
