Critic Reviews for 3:10 to Yuma
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.
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.
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.
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.
Director James Mangold amps up the blood and thunder without sacrificing the moral complexity of Elmore Leonard's original short story.
Audience Reviews for 3:10 to Yuma
Christian Bale continues to shine as one of his generations best.
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.
