A very average Western.
Verified purchase
I've never seen the original, so I can only speak of this version on it's own merits.

Put simply, I just wasn't that impressed with this film. I think Crowe and Bail both put in good performances and I liked their characters, but the story and the way it was presented just weren't much good.

The idea that putting a career outlaw on trial to inevitably hang is so important that it's worth the lives of all those trying to get him to a prison train is just a bit silly. Hundreds of bullets being fired at relatively short ranges but nobody getting hit despite not being in cover is just a bit silly. Having a kid who's sole facial expression throughout the entire film is a kind of fearful shock is a bit silly. And the ending was just... yeah, a bit silly.

In short, the film is just a bit silly. It's disappointing because with just a little effort, the silliness could have been excluded, and that would have made this a much better film. As it is, it's strictly average.

Action adventure & the train you can't afford to miss.
Verified purchase
A modern remake of an old school Cowboy classic.An all star cast includes Russell Crowe,Christian Bale,Ben Foster & Peter Fonda to name but a few.Bale plays the down on his luck rancher who is offered the chance of a $200 pay off to transport the bad guy Russell Crowe,to the 3.10 Train at Yuma.
What follows is a journey of action,adventure and shootouts as Bale brings Crowe ever nearer to the 3.10 Train at Yuma.

Good looking, stylish Western reboot
Verified purchase
Do recommend this + worth checking out Glenn Ford 1957 version. I like this version and have watched repeatedly as go-to safe movie as it has some action, effect & scenic marvels. But I hesitantly dropped to 4* because thought some characters can wander into monochrome/caricature. But if I just want a movie I want to chill out & watch a good yarn, it's like comfort food film equivalent. Few gory bits, maybe I'm sick to find them a bit funny gore, but my late teens did wince a bit, maybe brought up on Logan Lerman with his Percy Jackson fleece to cure those gored.

As Good as Any Recent Western
Verified purchase
There are very few westerns with challenging plots so I tend to look at the acting and the scenery, which being on the plains or prairie can be quite wonderful to look at. As a modern western this stands with any of the big hitters of recent times. The acting is great, the plot is good and we have lots of classic western scenery to look at. All the ingredients of the Wild West are here – the American dream, the outlaws, a man of principles to stand against them, stage coaches, Iron horse and of course the Indians! With 200 reviews already there’s no point in me elaborating any further, only to say, I’m with the five stars on this one.

Entertaining.
Verified purchase
This is a good film but not a great film.
The dialogue was somewhat muffled especially when being whispered. It is also hard to keep up with who is on which side! Watched mainly because Russell Crowe was in it.
The film itself basically being a "western" gave rise to the age old question in westerns, why carry on chasing a horsedrawn vehicle and shooting at the occupants when shooting the horses (cruel I know but it is just a film) would end the chase VERY quickly.

It still follows that tradition in films like Eastwood's "Unforgiven
Verified purchase
James Mangold's "3:10 to Yuma" restores the wounded heart of the Western and rescues it from the morass of pointless violence. The Western in its glory days was often a morality play, a story about humanist values penetrating the lawless anarchy of the frontier. It still follows that tradition in films like Eastwood's "Unforgiven," but the audience's appetite for morality plays and Westerns seems to be fading. Here the quality of the acting, and the thought behind the film, make it seem like a vanguard of something new, even though it's a remake of a good movie 50 years old.

Cheesy, over the top but still good fun
Verified purchase
If you enjoy the classic cheesy cliched westerns films filled with unreal action and over the top acting…you will like this.

It’s one of those westerns where you can seemingly dodge hundreds of bullets.

There is also some poor visual fx which let the film down. It’s a shame because the casting is excellent and some great scenes with the main characters.

it was fun though. But no a five star.

When you think about it, which I have been lately, is they weren't paying me to walk away......
Verified purchase
....They were paying me so they could walk away.

3:10 To Yuma is directed by James Mangold and co-adapted to screenplay by Halsted Welles, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. A remake of Delmer Daves' 1957 film of the same name, it's based on a story written by Elmore Leonard. It stars Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Peter Fonda, Ben Foster and Logan Lerman. Music is by Marco Beltrami and cinematography by Phedon Papamichael.

After the capture of notorious outlaw Ben Wade (Crowe), a posse is put together to escort him to the town of Contention from where he will be put on the 3:10 train to Yuma prison. Joining this posse is broke rancher Dan Evans (Bale), disabled in the Civil War, Dan is struggling to keep hold of his land and to support his family. Seen as a flop in the eyes of his eldest son William (Lerman), Dan sees this opportunity as a way out of his problems. But with Wade an intelligent foe, and the outlaw boss' gang on their trail, Evans and the posse will do well to make it to Contention alive....

Daves' original film is a fine effort, very much pulsing with psychological beats and cloaked in claustrophobic atmospherics. Backed up by two excellent Western performers in Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, there is many a Western fan who cherish it and never felt it was a genre piece ripe for a remake; myself included. But the logic behind the reasons Mangold and his team put forward for remaking it made sense. A story of great thematics for the adults, and action a go-go for the younger modern film fan. Thus putting a Western back in the headlines at yet another time when the genre was gasping for air. All that was left to do was get two of the modern era's biggest stars to play Wade and Evans-which of course they duly did-and it was good to go. Just don't mess it up was all that was asked of the makers.

Running at nearly half an hour longer than the original, Mangold's movie slots in a new mid-section and changes the ending. The former works a treat as the posse venture through hostile Apache country, meet some ne'er-do-well railroad ruffians and Wade's gang, led by the supremely fiendish Charlie Prince (Foster), are on the bloody trail. The latter is a huge misstep, both in execution and character development. Most film fans are happy to suspend disbelief in the name of good entertainment, but here we are asked to ignore some impossible athletics while also being asked to swallow a character turn around that beggars belief. Such a shame because up till then the blend of traditional Western character themes such as morality and redemption, had dovetailed nicely with the pistol banging and all round breezy action construction. While the father and son axis gives the narrative some extra bite.

Even bad guys love their mothers

The performances are also of a high standard. In the support slots Fonda, Foster and Lerman are top dollar. Fonda is all leather faced and gruff as bounty hunter McElroy, Foster does a quality line in sneering villainy, and Lerman, in a tricky role, utterly convinces as the conflicted boy breaking out into a man. But this is Crowe and Bale's movie. Crowe has Wade as an intelligent dandy, a man who loves and understands women, an artist who also has a tongue as quick as his hands are on his guns. We know that Wade is callous, but Crowe ensures that we never know what is around the corner or truly on his mind. Bale puts much dignity into Evans, he's a put upon man, tortured by his failings on the home front, but there is stoic nobility there and as he and Wade venture further on their journey, a grudging respect begins to form and Bale and Crowe really start to put credibility into their characters. And then that last quarter nearly undoes all their excellent work....

In spite of this, 3:10 To Yuma is a good time to be had as a modern Western production with old traditional values. Energetic and never dull from first frame to last, it's recommended on proviso you don't mind unscrewing your head and taking out your brain for the last 15 minutes. 7.5/10
