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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...
