That the climax fizzles must be laid on doorstep of Halsted Welles, who adapts Elmore Leonard's story quite well until that point.
September 7, 2007
A sturdy genre piece.

No amount of climactic train smoke can mask the fact that the finale is fancifully optimistic gibberish.

Daves isn't interested in cynicism. Redemption is probably too big a stretch as well, but there's plenty of room in-between.

During the 1950s, the Western grew a conscience.

It's of necessity a talkative film, with Ford working on Heflin's nerves in a stream of Machiavellian banter, but one held in perfect balance by Daves, who keeps the tension strung taut.
September 6, 2007
Though masterful in stretches, it ultimately mistakes feel-good qualities for truly satisfying ones.

It's rather talky but always remains lively and tense.

The minutes tick toward 3:10, and all we can do is watch and hope that it all turns out ok. That's the best kind of Western, one that allows feelings like that to emerge while watching.

Distinguished by its thoughtfulness regarding the nature of Western heroism, as defined not only by dead-eye gunplay, but by family, community, and moral rectitude. [Criterion Blu-ray]

October 8, 2005
A taut Western (obviously inspired by High Noon) about a lone man bravely standing on principle when all others have abandoned him. Marred only by a phony ending.

The enjoyment here that outweighs the film's derivativeness comes in the dialogue and relationship developed between outlaw and rancher.
January 24, 2008
The film is something of a classic and boasts a terrific ending.

Like The Gunfighter and Winchester '73, 3:10 to Yuma is one of those defining '50s Westerns that is well-known by film buffs but has never reached the familiarity level of a High Noon or Shane.

September 21, 2007
Although not as nerve-wracking as High Noon, 3:10 to Yuma is even more claustrophobic… and the two-character drama is more intriguing than High Noon's protagonist standing alone.

Despite an abundance of talk, this 1957 film is often considered [Daves'] best.
March 25, 2006
This is a first-rate action picture -- a respectable second section to High Noon.
