Product Description

Crowe/Bale/Fonda ~ 3:10 To Yuma (2007)

From Amazon.co.uk

Don't believe, despite what some may tell you, that the western is dead. 3:10 To Yuma is one of a handful of films in the genre that have slipped out over the past decade, with this one a fresh take on an Elmore Leonard story that was previously filmed with Glenn Ford in the lead role. This time, the cast is led by Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, and it's a fairly straightforward tale that they tell. Basically, Bale's sheriff vows to bring Crowe's killer to justice, and to make sure that he gets on the prison train of the title. It's pretty much as simple as that.

The film is low on surprises, to be fair, but 3:10 To Yuma is powered by the strong central performances, and the direction of Walk The Line helmer James Mangold, who makes much of the stunning scenery that his camera is often pointed at. There’s clearly a love of the genre here, with the landscapes eaten up by the excellent photography work.

And that's where the Blu-ray comes in. 3:10 To Yuma might not instantly spring to mind as any kind of reference disc, but the picture quality here is just brilliant. The detail of the visuals here is just the kind of material that high definition helps to accentuate, and there's no skimping on the picture quality here at all. It's matched by a diverse and often aggressive audio mix, that'll also give any decent set of speakers a real workout.

3:10 To Yuma isn't, in all honesty, a brilliant film, but it is a fun and entertaining western, and easily warrants a couple of hours from your eyeballs nonetheless. As a workout for a home cinema system? That's where it really comes into its own, far more so than you might expecting. --Jon Foster --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Format: DVD
Putting Russell Crowe and Christian Bale together in this movie was a master-stroke. They take opposing roles as the film romps along and the conflict (and then friendship) which develops between them makes for some gripping, nasty and touching moments.
This isn't one of those slowly paced, meandering modern westerns where it takes forever and a day for nothing much to happen. This is a vigh-velocity romp with plenty of wham! and bam! In 3:10 To Yuma the characters develop through blood, sweat and tears (punctuated by gunfire and fist fights).

Bale is a failing farmer, a cripple, who feels he's letting down his family and in particular his oldest son. Crowe is a high-living outlaw, used to ruling the roost and robbing whoever he can. Their paths cross when Crowe is captured and Bale agrees to join the guards who will take the prisoner to catch the prison train (that's the 3:10 to Yuma).

So that sets the scene for a road journey, one where the two men get to know each other, understand more about each other, fight each other, ride horses, sit round campfire, get beaten up -- all that good western stuff. The pace of the film is rapid, so it doesn't sit around dwelling on each point, but clips along to the next fight, the next showdown, the next twist.
There are moments of sweeping action on the plains and in the railroad yards, backed with gritted-teeth drama as the farmer's son starts to admire the outlaw -- his father can't compete with the glamorous gun-slinger who effortlessly charms the women, and provides exactly the wrong role model for the boy.
Bale's character can't quite believe that Crowe really is 100% bad, and that he's completely beyond redemption. Crowe keeps proving, brutally, that he really IS a bad man.

I've never seen the original, and perhaps I should, but this remake I definitely like. I thought both Russell Crowe and Christian Bale were superb, although how ironic is it that neither of the leads in this most American of genres are American?

Anyway, I'd highly recommend it. It's very tense and engaging, the two leads are excellent and Ben Cross is fantastic as Wade's sociopathic second-in-command. It's strange, towards the end I was getting Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid vibes with Wade and Evans: definitely strange since they're supposedly enemies, one of whom is trying to put the other on a train to prison. But there's an odd kind of friendship between the two which is quite moving, especially at the end.

So yes, my advice would be to watch it. Even if you don't like Westerns. And really, how can anyone not like Westerns? I'm so glad they're back into vogue again.

I'm a fan of all kinds of movies, but a lot of westerns leave me cold. Especially the older ones, where everybody always seemed to be so emaculate, despite the dust and grime of thier surroundings. And cheesy dialogue (lots of that). The better westerns were morality tales, like High Noon or action packed tales of violence, like the Dollars trilogy. What we have with this film is a perfect blend of both. A wonderful moral tale about redemption, loss, love and fighting for what you believe in melded with all that you expect from a really good western - coach chases, gunfights and some squinty-eyed quick draws. Performance wise? Note perfect. Actors like Christian Bale and Russell Crowe automatically add depth, but the stand-out is Ben Foster as Crowe's right hand psycho 'Charlie Prince'. A chilling and quirky performance. So, all in all, a good enough western to fans of the old fashioned type, with enough action and depth to appeal to the new crowd. Brilliant.

Format: DVD
I have enduring memories of the original, seen in black and white in the local flea pit in Belfast approximately a million years ago, so I was keen to see this one. Now it has to be remembered that the Western is really a type of American fairy tale where a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, and all sorts of improbablilities abound, such as the fast draw that never really existed and the squeezing of an entire arsenal of machine gun-like shots out of a gun that only held six bullets and which had to be cocked every time. So, one has to accept this and enjoy the ride.

I found the ride reasonably enjoyable. Crowe and Bale do quite a good job, as does the nasty SOB who is Crowe's 2IC. However, the ending is so wildly, completely improbable that it just spoiled the whole show for me. Surely a more likely ending could have been contrived?

Format: Blu-ray
Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) is a theif and a killer, and after robbing the stage 22 times, he's been caught. Rancher Dan Evans (Christian Bale) volunteers to join the posse that's taking Wade to the train station, a three-day ride away, for the princely sum of $200. Evans needs the money to keep his ranch and to improve his status in his teenage son's eyes. All the while, Wade's evil gang is following them and slowly but surely whittling down the posse.

This western grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go for two hours. At the end, I felt like I hadn't taken a breath the whole time. It's gritty and dirty and cruel and incredibly intense. Crowe manages to make his nasty character likeable and even heroic at the end. His manly charisma dominates the screen. Bale is also excellent as the pitable, noble rancher. I was really rooting for him. Ben Foster plays a thoroughly hateful sadist with relish, but he looked so much like Mike Love of the Beachboys that I was a little distracted during his close-ups.

The taut script has many memorable lines such as, "Even a bad man loves his mama." The desert scenery is magnificent and the movie has a realistic, no-frills look to it. It left me exhausted and sad, but it was powerful and extremely well-made.
