  Worth The Journey...

| | See all blayboy's reviews (447)

Another good Modern Western. This time Christian Bale has to take in An Outlaw played by Russell Crowe. He must try and get him safely to the train in time! This is a good film. Not an all out classic but still very entertaining. Theres some great acting, scenery, action and is well made. If you enjoyed Unforgiven, True Grit and Open Range you would probably like this.

  Action packed modern western € Crowe showcase

| | See all tbrookey09's reviews (74)

This modern western is entertaining enough, if you can stand the charms of Russell Crowe, and a shyer opposite role by Christian Bale.

This film is action packed, starting off excellently and then succumbing to parts of cheesy disbelief and strains towards the end. The film ultimately is an easy, worthy watch and enjoyable pretty much throughout in this cowboy style romp.

I liked the fact the movie was not slow, had plenty of action, good characters and a gritty feel to it, a good family watch.

It is a remake, and is directed by James Mangold (Knight & Day, Walk the Line, Cop Land and Identity).

  Reinvogorates the Western Genre

When outlaw Ben Wade is captured Civil War veteran Dan Evans, struggling to look after his family on his drought-plagued ranch, volunteers to deliver him alive to the 3:10 to Yuma. The train is due to take the outlaw to trial but with Wade's gang hoping to get him back the task soon becomes more dangerous than Evan's imagined.

Beautifully shot 3:10 to Yuma is gripping stuff from the outset, recreating the gritty realism of the very best westerns. Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, both talented actors, are at the top of their game throughout the movie helping to make their characters completely believable. By the time the movie reaches its climax most viewers will be fully invested in the characters stories and that really is testament to the films quality.

  A true masterpeice.

This movie is brilliant, a true epic. The story is excellent, which is complimented by the direction of the movie itself. The cast is amazing, with the strange addition of Alan Tudyk. (who pull's it off quite well.)
This is a proud addition to my western collection.

Although the Western genre has never itself been an area I've found I always responded to, there are some exceptions amongst the films made in the last few years and this remake of the 1957 film is definitely one of them.

A struggling farmer (Christian Bale) accepts the job of escorting a prisoner (Russell Crowe) across the landscape to meet the 3.10 to Yuma train that will carry him to prison.

Although expanded (both in terms of the number of characters added and also thematically, becoming much more a mirrored father/son story with the addition of a son for Bale and the presence of Crowe's right-hand man in the form of Ben Foster) from the original director James Mangold puts together a solidly made and respectful new adaption of the basic story that stands on it's own and works. Bale and Crowe are a great central pairing but with an excellent supporting cast along with them. The landscapes are beautifully shot and though the action is sporadic until the final exciting shootout it's paced well and balanced with the dialogue sequences so that we get to know and care about the characters presented to us.

Well worth a fiver to be added to the collection.

  one of the best westons ever

| | See all ChunkyCB's reviews (8)

it was a great movie, worth the cheap price, its a good weston, sure its not action packed all the way (but still quite action packed at points) it has got some good action scenes in it and some great acting and a tense story line, well casted and a great film in the hole

  Not a fan of westerns at all, surpised with this though

Like up above, I'm not a fan of western film's at all but being a big Bale fan this was not missable, and boy am I glad I got it. Bale is such a good actor and he does it effortlessly, he has to be one of the greatest British actor's ever, anyway. This is just simply an awesome film, the story I thought was a bit simple but turns out to be very good with good acting, the ending and the last fight going through the whole town seemed a little over the top but it was one of the best ending's any film has every had. If you don't have this your missing out on a very very good film.

3:10 to Yuma (2007) - ****
Made 50 years after the original film, this worthy remake has some fantastic shootouts and actions sequences, but far more appealing is the sparky relationship between a charming Russell Crowe and the subdued Christian Bale. Also worth watching for a great villainous turn from Ben Foster.
