In Arizona in the late 1800's, infamous outlaw Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) plagues the Southern Railroad. When Wade is captured, Civil War veteran Dan Evans (Christian Bale) - struggling to survive on his drought-plagued ranch and desperate for money - volunteers need to escort him to the "3:10 to Yuma", a train that will take the killer to trial. During the journey the two men learn grudging mutual respect, but with Wade's cold-blooded gang in hot pursuit, the mission soon becomes a violent dangerous journey where honour and loyalty clash with far-reaching consequences.
not a bad attempt at a western,but why?/ the first was great,this is ok but one asks why bother unless better or as good??
worth a watch.

Not necessarly everyones type of film but definatey worth a recommendation. I loved the ending it ( I wont give it away) but wasnt what I was expecting. Not the normal type of western but well worth a looksee

A classic genre revisited
- 3:10 to Yuma review by Pete W
Remember all those westerns that used to be on TV on a Sunday afternoon? Well this is out of the same stable but updated for the 21st century. Solid performances from Russell Crowe and Christian Bale in the lead roles and a storyline that holds the attention with constant twists and turns. Special mention for Ben Foster as a psychopathic outlaw who gets what he deserves in the end from an unexpected source.
