Genre: (Action | Crime | Drama | Western)
IMDb Rating: (7,8/10 from 166 766 users)
Director: (James Mangold)
Starring: (Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Logan Lerman)
Plot:
Rancher Dan Evans heads into Bisbee to clear up issues concerning the sale of his land when he witnesses the closing events of a stagecoach robbery led by famed outlaw Ben Wade. Shortly thereafter, Wade is captured by the law in Bisbee and Evans finds himself one of the escorts who will take Wade to the 3:10 to Yuma train in Contention for the reward of $200.
Evans’s effort to take Wade to the station is in part an effort to save his land but also part of an inner battle to determine whether he can be more than just a naive rancher in the eyes of his impetuous and gunslinging son William Evans...
Nothing special. Just some people ridding horses, periodically shooting and then probably worst (most stupid) ending of a western ever.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. The contrast between the two lead characters kept my attention throughout the entire movie. Credit goes to the director, James Mangold, for his ability to create beautiful images and violence that did not seem excessive, even in the last gun-slinging scene; which is a big accomplishment for someone directing a western. The character of Ben Wade in particular was a joy to watch; Russel Crowe did an amazing job in depicting the complexity of a notorious bandit.
Wow this is the best western I have seen. I mean it's so hard to root for somebody in this movie. I thought Crowe and Bale were both Oscar worthy for their roles. And what a great gunfight in the end that made the movie flawless.
Great acting and great action! This is an action packed western starring two of the best actors of all time in Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. Bale is the hero that has to escort Ben Wade (Crowe) to a train so that he can earn money to pay off his bills.
I'm not that into Western's and I never saw the original, but this was a great movie.
Great western movie, and I don't particularly like westerns! Good acting and great action!
Loved it. Russell Crowe was likeable and hateable throughout the whole movie. It was awesome. And the guy who plays his right hand man is scary as hell. See it. Its awesome.
95/100. I DVRd this back in March I think and it took me almost 6 months to watch it. I heard that it was a good movie, but never got the itch to watch it. Not much about it got me excited being that it was a western and I'm not in love with Russell Crowe.

Once I began watching, I couldn't put it down. The last Western-type movie I watched was the Assasination of Jesse James..." and although that was a beautifully shot movie, it dragged on a lot.
This movie 3:10 to Yuma was fantastic though. The characters were funny and memorable. The whole story with Christian Bale and how his kids and wife look down on him cuz they aren't getting the water their farm needs (and he didn't have the balls to raise hell to get his water back)... it was tragic at the end when he pretty much made the decision to die and not be there for his family since it would mean that they'd get the water back on and have a better life. He thought so low of himself that he coulnd't provide for his family that they didn't need him there... he was better and more useful as a deadman than he would have been alive. I never saw that in a review of the movie, but that's what I was thinking.
Russell Crowe's character has a lot of character. He was witty and shockingly brutal. He would kill everyone without blinking an eye. I loved when he stabbed that guy in the neck with the fork. He deserved it with how big of a douche he was and his "swan song" before going to bed and getting stabbed was funny. 'Kill me in the morning...."

I love that crazy actor who was heading the rescue crew for Russel Crowe... I've seen him in other movies like Alpha Dog with Justin Timberlake- he's out of his mind and it's believeable. It's not like it was original, but when he got the townspeople in on the action of killing Crowe's captors, I knew it would be a mess.

I was very fearful of the ending and how corny it would be. Although the two never would have made it through that town alive, it was almost touching how Crowe's character let Christian Bale bring him to the train and put him in the cage. He could have walked out -- even had a chance to shoot Bale on the way to the train, but knew he was good enough to get make it alive and not really be killed in jail. He escaped in the past, but wanted to ensure that Bale's family got the reward money. I knew that Crowe's character was gonna escape once he got the jail, but it was just an added charm that he did that whistle and the horse began to follow... the whole movie had charm.

Nothing super original about this movie, but was a great watch.
