October 18, 2008
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.
January 25, 2008
The film is a creditable remake - no better than the original but different enough to stand on its considerable merits.

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.
September 20, 2007
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.
September 14, 2007
A well-made movie that isn't as simply expressed as its predecessor and so loses some of its mythic quality; the more you complicate westerns the less effective they often become.

Take(s) a tried-and-true genre and make[s] it rousing and fresh.
October 13, 2018
With its great acting, great pacing, and crackerjack storyline, Yuma is not only fun, it is surprisingly moral.
August 23, 2018
Both dull and deeply unnecessary; a stinker.

3:10 to Yuma, director James Mangold's new duster features the toothsome duo, plus a bevy of time-tested conventions -- a white hat, a black hat, a good little woman, couple of towheaded kids, and a few unlikely twists to boot. Oh, yes, it has boots, too.
August 22, 2017
3:10 to Yuma isn't a necessary film. But it sure is tasty.
May 22, 2013
This gorgeous Criterion transfer makes a convincing case for the underrated 3:10 to Yuma.
November 3, 2012
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.
July 14, 2011
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.
March 3, 2011
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.
August 11, 2010
Director James Mangold amps up the blood and thunder without sacrificing the moral complexity of Elmore Leonard's original short story.
July 6, 2010
3:10 to Yuma confirms that the western is alive and kicking with a vengeance.
July 6, 2010
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.
July 6, 2010
Bale and Crowe are superlative, but Mangold's rote, banal expansion never quickens the pulse.
June 9, 2010
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.
