3:10 to Yuma

3:10 to Yuma is a western that isn’t all about pointless violence. It goes beyond the main story (making a 3:10 train to Yuma) and becomes a battle on screen between Russell Crowe and Christian Bale’s characters. (Thank god Tom Cruise backed out of this movie.) The acting and dialogue are strong throughout the movie, but it falls entirely on Crowe (I guess when he’s not busy throwing phones at people he can act) and Bale’s shoulders. While this isn’t Unforgiven it is still an enjoyable movie.
