Critic Reviews for 3:10 to Yuma

All Critics (216) | Top Critics (50) | Fresh (189) | Rotten (25) | DVD (17)

Nothing terribly original happens in this remake of a 1957 semi-classic that starred Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, but everything happens smoothly and with grace.

Top Critic

Having the chutzpah to make a straightforward, unself-aware oater feels downright revolutionary. Whether that's enough to justify this enterprise, however, is debatable.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

Mangold's film is more than sufficiently subtexty and cynical for our modern sensibilities while simultaneously embracing Mangold's obvious pleasure in the Westerns' time-honored swinging saloon doors and stern masculine traditions.

Top Critic

Mangold delivers a taut modern take on a lesser classic, preserving the High Noon themes about doing the right thing against all odds, and injecting a more modern pacing and urgency without going overboard.

AV Club
Top Critic

The two leads' sparking byplay, Crowe's addled cockiness versus Bale's nervy grit, would grace any surroundings, but it's a pleasure to revisit the frontier in a drama which feels far more vital than mere nostalgic homage.

Top Critic

James Mangold's expert and entertaining 3:10 to Yuma demonstrates both the Western's age-old appeal, and the problems it presents to a contemporary filmmaker.

Top Critic

Elevated above the usual fare by an engaging and complex relationship between its two stars, 3:10 To Yuma would be a thoroughly entertaining two hours whatever the genre - the Western setting is almost a bonus.

Full Review… | November 3, 2012

The real thrill of the film lies in watching these two men, sat on various sides of the moral fence, gradually converge and respect each other.

Full Review… | July 14, 2011
Digital Spy

3:10 to Yuma is as heavy on character as it sounds like it should be ... and still a rip-roaring adventure around it; until it all gets away from director James Mangold in a crashing heap of unlikely motivation and flawed decisions.

Full Review… | March 3, 2011

Director James Mangold amps up the blood and thunder without sacrificing the moral complexity of Elmore Leonard's original short story.

East Bay Express

3:10 to Yuma confirms that the western is alive and kicking with a vengeance.

Matt's Movie Reviews

It is part of the richness of 3.10 to Yuma that this is a classical piece of storytelling with themes and characters that can be found in the very earliest Westerns.

Full Review… | July 6, 2010
Sight and Sound

Bale and Crowe are superlative, but Mangold's rote, banal expansion never quickens the pulse.

Full Review… | July 6, 2010
Boston Phoenix

Mangold's direction is effective, if unobtrusive, and the dusty deserts of the American west continue to provide a cinematic palette that fails to run dry.

Gives "solid craftsmanship" a dreary name

Full Review… | August 27, 2009

Pays homage to the classic Western by staying true to genre conventions, but does so with a fresh set of eyes that gives the film a welcome place in a modern multiplex.

Fifty years have elapsed since 3:10 to Yuma last pulled into the station, but, man, the return trip is worth the wait.

Full Review… | July 15, 2009

First 1.5 hours are slow, preposterously scripted, and short of powerful dialogue. I liked the ending though.

Full Review… | June 18, 2009
Hollywood Report Card

3:10 to Yuma is a big, brawling action-adventure with strong psychological elements. The original 3:10 to Yuma, with Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, directed by Delmer Daves, was a psychological western, and the present version expands on that.

Full Review… | February 2, 2009
Fayetteville Free Weekly

In the end, what makes 3:10 to Yuma work despite a rather preposterous final act, is that it refuses to see anything in terms of moral simplicity, despite the presence of black and white hats.

Q Network Film Desk

It's not too often that a remake holds up to the original, but Mangold's rendition blows the 1957 version out of the water in every imaginable way possible.

Full Review… | July 23, 2008
Watertown Daily Times

A mini-epic on the historical changes of the old west...serving as a just tribute to earlier, classic westerns such as The Searchers and, more recently, Unforgiven.

[I]f you're looking for an Unforgiven-style reinvention of the Western, prepare for disappointment.

Full Review… | May 1, 2008

I was surprised at how engaged I remained throughout almost the entire movie, and much of that credit might have to go to the film's dual leads, Christian Bale and Russell Crowe...

Audience Reviews for 3:10 to Yuma

Christian Bale continues to shine as one of his generations best.

John Manard

Super Reviewer


3:10 To Yuma is a remake of the 1957 Glenn Ford western in which an honest rancher injured in the civil war takes on the job of escorting a notorious outlaw to the prison train in order to save his family's ranch from the railroad. This film really does retain the spirit of the original as it has a real old-fashioned feel to it. The direction is glossy rather than gritty and the story of two contrasting personalities learning mutual respect under adverse circumstances is hardly a new one. But Bale and Crowe put in a couple of great performances, bolstering the rather workmanlike themes; Bale's down at heel working man trying to find some self respect and Crowe's educated and charming but ruthless outlaw spark off some really good chemistry, particularly during the great showdown finale. It probably won't win over anybody who does not like traditional westerns but it's a very well executed and enjoyable tale for those who do.

A movie that is able to call back to the simplistic fun of golden age Westerns while still exploring complex character relationships. "3:10 to Yuma" is my favorite Western thanks to spectacular action, engaging performances, and a sense of adventure and freedom that just isn't that common anymore.
