    Maybe this redo didn’t need so many bells and whistles, but Mangold brings it home. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The finest American Westerns have a characteristic that 3:10 to Yuma shares. In a way that's almost mystical, they suggest a truth beyond the specifics of the tale. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Captures a potent sense of the Old West with its multidimensional raw performances and captivating final shootout sequence. But with its emphasis on emotional truths, it transcends the confines of a cowboy movie. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The strengths of the first "3:10 To Yuma" were enhanced by its proportionality -- an intimate story told in 92 minutes. The story is no bigger in the new version, which goes on for 117 minutes. And it's certainly not better. show more

    A riveting remake of a pretty terrific 1957 western about manhood, fatherhood and honor. show more

    Unlike Glenn Ford, a soft-spoken studio star who was cast against type as Wade 50 years ago, Crowe is a perfect fit. Not because of his bad boy behavior offscreen, but because he can blend charm and menace better than anyone. show more

    A largely compelling ride on the strength of a powerful cast led by Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. show more

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

    The new version is a glorious, thrilling throwback that never sacrifices its solid roots in the western genre despite a sharp modern update that actually improves on the original. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    The nerve-racking wait at the Contention hotel is no longer the film's centerpiece, but the deeper characterization gives Bale an opportunity to once again sink his teeth into a complex role, and offers a reminder as to why the notoriously difficult Crowe is sometimes worth the trouble. show more

    Sorry to give away the ending, but it made no sense at all. Crowe's character is a bad guy being delivered to the prison train while meantime his gang is trying to rescue him. But we must believe that Crowe's conscience is bothering him because right when he is being rescued he seemingly has a change of heart. How changed? He proceeds to slaughter his own loyal gang members who have been risking their lives to help him and then cheerfully jumps on the prison train to go off to jail while hinting he will soon escape. Completely stupid and senseless!Seems like Crowe's past success has gotten to his head. Gladiator is one of my all time favoorites, but this one stinks!

    The Movie was really good up till about the last 20 minutes. The ending is so ridiculous and stupid its laughable. The movie was an 80/100 before the last 15 minutes, the last 15 minutes was a 00000/100. Its like they could not think of an ending, and just put together the ending with little or no thought process.

    Incredible...(Don't read if you haven't seen this) The Christian Bale character exemplifies what it is to "walk the walk." No need to preach, just live it and others will change. Russell Crowe' s character's life is changed when he see's someonewilling to risk death for his convictions. In the end, he would rather die righteously than return to his sin. Powerful sermon -who knew!?

    Best Western I have seen in a long time. I love the Charles Prince character. He was awesome. His horse even matched his pants.
