3:10 TO YUMA

What a refreshing change of pace to watch a first-class action western again.

3:10 to Yuma is a gritty remake of the 1957 movie, with plenty of drama, wit, and energy.

This simple solid story is full of surprising twists, impossible decisions, and tries to make us spot the difference between what's heroic, right, wrong, or just plain stupid.

Here's a good old rough and tough western that works.

Heck! I bet Clint Eastwood would like it too.

The unlikely alliance of an outlaw and a ranch hand is explored in 3:10 to Yuma, a western character study full of twists, turns, and multiple murders.

Backed by a stellar cast of characters, Bale and Crowe face off as opposite sides of the law with similar needs.

Taut, tight, and full of surprises, it's the modern western at its best.

Russell Crowe and Christian Bale team up for a fuller and larger update of Hollywood's oldest-type western called 3:10 to Yuma, a tough and enjoyable remake of the 1957 minor classic.

The violence and shoot-outs in this movie are really a come-on.

The picture's real duel is a psychological one, a shoot-out of values between two powerful different men.
