3:10 to Yuma

IMDB

(2007, James Mangold)

Tolerable modern Western featuring good performances by Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. The story though seems awfully thin and centered around fight scenes and chase sequences. I believe in better hands, this has the makings of a classic movie (hey, wait, this IS a remake), but it’s all too unbelievable, and bordering on hokey, for this to get any more than a moderate approval.

And I still am ashamed of how much Mangold I’ve ingested.

3.0/5.0

  1. I have been curious about this one. I love the original, with Van Heflin and Glenn Ford — right up until the ending, anyway.
