3.0 out of 5 stars Good start, terrible finish, 1 Jun 2008
This review is from: 3.10 To Yuma [DVD] (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?

Totally agree. Very poor ending....

At least the cinemas in Belfast have improved a bit though!

Well, the scene of the crime (the Savoy up the Crumlin Road) has vanished completely!
