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.

a must own western.
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.Read more ›
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.
