3:10 to Yuma, a remake of the movie made 50 years earlier, is a classic Western in every sense, and I mean that in the best and worst way. Christian Bale plays a man who joins a posse to take Russell Crowe's character, Ben Wade, an infamous outlaw, to a train set to depart at 3:10 to Yuma in a town 3 days away. The story is not highly developed, but Westerns have never relied on complex stories, rather straightforward ones that are done well, and this fits that bill quite well. Christian Bale does an okay job, but most of the time he lacks emotion in his role, which makes the relationship with his son hard for me to care a lot about, and that makes the whole premise of why he's doing all this falter. Russell Crowe does a fantastic job in his role, and was easily the best part of this movie. No other characters are particularly remarkable, which again is a trademark of Westerns, and the action is top notch for what it tries to do. But Bale's failure to engage his role in the capacity it requires makes this movie not as good as it should be, but it's still a good movie that I would recommend.
