However Stallone's performance in Copland holds more resonance as he was trying to find his way after a series of flops, plus prove himself against acting heavyweights DeNiro, Keitel, and Liotta. Copland for him was a statement of intent, and one of survival in a changing market. In contrast Bale is one of the finest actors of his generation, the Dark Knight, and just too strong a character for us to truly believe his one-legged underdog no matter how wonderfully acted.On the plus side though Yuma is an old-fashioned piece of entertainment with some great action scenes. It has all the genre elements; the reluctant hero, the good doctor, and the bored, action-hungry son. Crowe is suitably charismatic as the outlaw and Bale is solid as the taciturn war veteran. Yet this is all immaterial when Ben Foster is on the screen as Crowe's right-hand man. But like every fantastic villain, as good as the other two are we want more of his demonic presence every time we see him.
