Both dull and deeply unnecessary; a stinker.

August 22, 2018 | Full Review…

It is part of the richness of 3.10 to Yuma that this is a classical piece of storytelling with themes and characters that can be found in the very earliest Westerns.

July 6, 2010 | Full Review…

Nothing terribly original happens in this remake of a 1957 semi-classic that starred Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, but everything happens smoothly and with grace.

[I]f you're looking for an Unforgiven-style reinvention of the Western, prepare for disappointment.

The film is a creditable remake - no better than the original but different enough to stand on its considerable merits.

January 25, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Mangold's film is more than sufficiently subtexty and cynical for our modern sensibilities while simultaneously embracing Mangold's obvious pleasure in the Westerns' time-honored swinging saloon doors and stern masculine traditions.

Audience Reviews for 3:10 to Yuma


3:10 To Yuma is a remake of the 1957 Glenn Ford western in which an honest rancher injured in the civil war takes on the job of escorting a notorious outlaw to the prison train in order to save his family's ranch from the railroad. This film really does retain the spirit of the original as it has a real old-fashioned feel to it. The direction is glossy rather than gritty and the story of two contrasting personalities learning mutual respect under adverse circumstances is hardly a new one. But Bale and Crowe put in a couple of great performances, bolstering the rather workmanlike themes; Bale's down at heel working man trying to find some self respect and Crowe's educated and charming but ruthless outlaw spark off some really good chemistry, particularly during the great showdown finale. It probably won't win over anybody who does not like traditional westerns but it's a very well executed and enjoyable tale for those who do.

A movie that is able to call back to the simplistic fun of golden age Westerns while still exploring complex character relationships. "3:10 to Yuma" is my favorite Western thanks to spectacular action, engaging performances, and a sense of adventure and freedom that just isn't that common anymore.
