3:10 to Yuma

3:10 to Yuma
Remake of the 1957 western, which was based on a story by Elmore Leonard ('Get Shorty', 'Rum Punch').

Small-time family man and rancher, Dan Evans (Christian Bale), agrees to hold a captured outlaw (big bad Russell Crowe) who is awaiting a train to go to court in Yuma. Desperate for the money, Dan is putting his life on the line - threatened with his life by the outlaw’s gang. A psychological battle begins when the criminal offers financial reward and safety if Evans releases him.

James Mangold's 3:10 to Yuma restores the wounded heart of the Western and rescues it from the morass of pointless violence...

In the battle of the leading men, Crowe's character has a slight edge, and the actor really makes the most of it, showing us how boyishly mischievous charm and utter venality can exist without seeming contradiction in the same being. But Bale builds to a pretty impressive boil himself after laying back for about three quarters of the film...

Remake of a classic is packed with action and good performances but lacks subtlety and nuance.

This isn't Sergio Leone but was a far better watch than I had expected, and I left the cinema feeling quite replete.

Mangold has time to build sensational, studied characterizations, brilliant pacing (courtesy Mike McCuster, who also edited the director’s previous effort, the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line”), and blistering action...

3:10 to Yuma is a stylish remake of a 50-year-old cowboy film, making this a murderously modern, yet satisfyingly old-fashioned, western.
