3:10 To Yuma

He says he’s NOT gonna see it! What would YOU have me do???

Finally, a decent western since “Unforgiven”! This film is about the transport of a dangerous gang leader to a train station for the 3:10 to Yuma. The trials of keeping his gang at bay, and not letting him kill you, keeps the movie rolling quite nicely. Russell Crowe takes the lead as the antagonist while Christian Bale plays a dirt farmer enticed by dollars to aid in the safe passage of this criminal. An odd bond takes place between the two that might suggest they see each other as equals on separate playing fields. The action is heavy in spots but delivers when it hits. The film does drag a little towards the end, but picks up for it’s conclusion. Highly recommended. A-
