So, I had heard a long time ago that people thought 3:10 to Yuma was a good movie. At the time, I didn't know it was a remake of the original and I never really got the opportunity to see it when it was in theaters. Finally, after 6 years or so I got the opportunity to view this movie on Amazon.
I... I can't believe I didn't see this movie sooner.
So let's get this out of the way, I haven't seen the original movie and I don't plan to. After having tried to watch the original True Grit, I realized that I just don't have a taste for old movies, so I'm not going to try with this one. Let's just stick with what we've got here and go from there.
So let's get this out of the way, I wanted to cry while watching this movie. It was so subtle in how it grabbed me that I had no idea I was falling for it hook line and sinker, even my girlfriend was starting to shed a few tears.

This remake is a bit slick in comparison to the original. We have the technology now to bring back the westerns like we have never seen or heard them . . . . that is great digital sound with HD resolution. Here, a wanted criminal, Ben Wade ( Russell Crowe ), is influenced by a maybe not so common rancher ( C. Bale ) during their ride to Yuma, AZ. This unseen emotional transformation happens gradually to the outlaw Wade perhaps by his recognition of one man's devotion to his family. Wade's gang is such a cut-throat but trusty mob that he never doubts their ability to rescue him during captivity. A good supporting cast helps the film along. It somehow lacks the grit of the old western movies but it liked it anyway. Yes, the western genre is not dead and probably never will be. I'm happy to see a modern day take on an older western of this caliber.
