    Best Western in A long time

    Posted

    3:10 to Yuma is an exceptional remake of the original. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe really make this movie enjoyable to watch. The overall plot is that Bale's character helps in the capture of Crowe's. Crowe's character is the West's most know criminal around. The problem though is they need Crowe to get to a train station so that he can be tried in a federal court and sent to Yuma prison. With a deadly gang that is always on their tails, as they try and get Crowe to the train station, this goes from a very simple task to a very dangerous one. With this simple plot in hand it is thickened greatly by the psychological tactics of Crowe and the battle for respect and understanding between the characters of Crowe and Bale. I also found it very interesting the conflict within Bale's character of choosing between earning respect from his peer's as well as his family, and just earning a quick dollar to keep them alive for another year. There is really great character development between Bale and Crowe and as the movie progresses you see them come to an understanding of each other more and more. Eventually coming to a end at the train station that you were definitely not expecting. With all of that in mind this is still a run and gun western with lots of shooting and a decent body count. However the relationship development between Crowe and Bale is very well done. A must see for any fan of westerns and or Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. Do not miss this one and if you have Blu Ray it looks and sounds great as well. Also there are some decent educational extras that relate to the film very well that are worth checking out a least once.

    best western to buy

    christian bale is probably one of the best, if not-the best actor of our time. just think about it:this movie, american psycho, the new batman movies, the prestige and no this. crowe gives one of his best performances as ben wade, a robber/murderer with his psychopathic second leader charlie prince played by ben foster. bale and crowe first meet after crowe takes out a wagon to rob and crowe rides up to bale and his sons while their trying to round up their cattle. one of bales sons seems to like crowe a lot, almost more than his own dad(bale). throughout the movie, bale seems to hate and avoid crowe as crowe trys to talk some since into him. scince bale only has one foot, that makes the story even more intense as bale goes through all these harsh things(especially the end) as crowe trys make freinds with-or at least thats what you think hes trying to do. this movie has one of the most exciting endings ive seen in a while and its a little chaotic. the action is properly paced and the run time is perfect. in other words, 310 to yuma is probably the best western ive ever seen. and yes ive seen the good, bad, and ugly and ive seen unforgiven. if any western where to beat this one, it would be unforgiven, but this is still excellent. the blu-ray version is just as good as any other blu-ray movie. the ending is great and it really shows how much more likeable crowes character can be. but without giving anything away, the end is happy and sad.

    A Strong, Powerful Western.

    Let me start off with, what a great movie. 3:10 to Yuma has an amazing powerful story, with strong actors who pull you into the old west. I don't want to give away any part of the story, so let's jump to other parts. Visuals, 3:10 to Yuma has always been a let down on dvd and even bluray, so i was hoping for a great experience on 4K and it didn't disappoint. Crisp clean sharp and full of life, the picture jumps off the screen. Audio: with gunshots to horses neighing to the hoof claps, the explosions, all helping make for a better experience. I highly recommend purchasing.

    A Decent Remake of a Standard Western

    Posted
    hroeder

    This is a nicely developed story. A Bad Guy with a little bit of heart. A Good Guy trying to make good against the system. A wife who disappears from the plot early on. (It is a remake of a 50's Western.) And a rebellious son who has to come along in search of danger. It's probably realistic that a 14 year old would take on this journey back in the Old West. But somehow this version just doesn't sit well. Seems unbelievable. Crowe is good, as usual. The directing is well done. There is some tension. So why wouldn't I recommend it to a friend? Because it's the same old same old. This is a Clint Eastwood type of tale. Again. This is a posse chasing a bad guy chasing money, again. And despite the style, it is still just a Western. Clint Eastwood provided a Few More Thrills.

    Best Picture of 2007

    Buddyslitch

    This film should be leading the Oscar race. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe were both outstanding. They story arc that Bale plays is huge and much more meaningful than the original flick. Russell Crowe exudes evil with such complexity and handsomeness that you just shiver. Peter Fonda gives his best turn as a Pinkerton chasing Crowe's character. He should have been nominated for best supporting actor since this role was one of the few times that he really, really demonstrated his acting chops. Perhaps this film was overlooked because it really presented a morality and the fact that doing the right thing is the duty of every man and most men don't step up and do their duty. But when one does, as Bale does here, it transcends the venal selfishness that most people show.

    Just an average UHD disc

    Lionsgate continues with another budget ultra high definition release... emphasis on budget. They used an older 2k DI printout and upconverted rather than create a new 4k scan from the original camera negatives. They also made some weird choices in their HDR grade and hit the image with too aggressive grain reduction that gives it a slightly smeary appearance. The DTS: X remix is a modest improvement over the original 7.1 track with occasional spot effects steered to the overhead speakers. Recommended only to those who haven't yet purchased this solid remake or those who find it on heavy discount.

    Good western in a long time

    The Western genre is pretty rare nowadays--the Hollywood of today usually prefers other kinds of films (we feel you Clint Eastwood). Fortunately for the die-hard fans of the classic Spaghetti Western, the waiting is over. 3:10 to Yuma is one of the best Western film in years and probably one of the best films of 2007 overall. Not only we get excellent performances by Crowe and Bale, but the film captures the Western film traditions from the past--everything from a compelling story with a sense of justice and great gun action. Read on and I tell you, even if you're not a fan of Western, why you have to watch this extraordinary film.

    Not a bad Western, but no Unforgiven

    I won't go into specific plot items as spoilers, but overall it wasn't a bad western. The story was pretty good, and had a good pace once the initial character's were established. Although there were a few plot holes in the story. The biggest complaint I had was the ending. It seemed to almost be forced, as if they forgot to include the ending and had to cram one in when they remembered. And it almost seemed to be too extreme given the pace of the character interaction between Russel Crowe and Christain Bale's characters. But I can see why the advertisements said it was the best western since Unforgiven. While not a bad western, it's certainly no Unforgiven.
