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).
