Arizona in the late 1800s. Infamous outlaw Ben Wade and his vicious gang of thieves and murderers have plagued the Southern Railroad. When Wade is captured, Civil War veteran Dan Evans, struggling to survive on his drought-plagued ranch, volunteers to deliver him alive to the train that will take the killer to trial. On the trail, Evans and Wade, each from very different worlds, begin to earn each other's respect. But with Wade's outfit on their trail, and dangers at every turn, the mission soon becomes a violent, impossible journey toward each man's destiny.

One of my favorite (remade) western films. I loved the dynamic between Bale and Crowe. A good western film to watch on a cold snowy night.

This is a very well made western. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are both very good in their roles. The film poses some interesting philosophical questions about what motivates humans to do what they do.

This was a poor effort- " badly written " indeed! See the original for a better take on the classic Western.

This is a 2007 western directed by James Mangol.
It is a remake of the 1957 film of the same name, making it the second adaptation of Elmore Leonard's short story "Three-Ten to Yuma."
Although you must have a willing suspension of disbelief---especilly in the last shooting scenes, this wesnern is one of the best since "Unforgiven" directed by East Clintwood.

This original version is much better than the remake.

To me, this was like Prometheus or Braveheart, in the sense that I loved it the 1st time I saw it, due to awesome subject material, epic action scenes, cool costumes etc. But on a 2nd viewing, I realized how ridiculous, badly-written and unrealistic the whole thing is. I think it would've been better as a comedy. I totally didn't pick up on the "gay theme" mentioned in the comment below, so I'm not sure that's accurate. The thing I hate about most movies is that none of the characters are likable to me...My favorite character in this was the Train, and maybe the horses!

Don't really care about westerns, but this is a great film. The interaction between Bale and Crowe is epic, but best of all is Charlie Prince, one nasty fellow.

Interesting exploration of the relationship, and differing/conflicting values of the two men. One of Crowe's more complex acting jobs. The action surrounding the men is fairly standard for westerns.

Well deserving of its praise as a classic. Give yourself a treat by following this one up with a viewing of the Russell Crowe version !

William Evans: "...You ever been to Dodge?" Ben Wade: "Yes indeed. Meanest, most beautiful, dirty city there ever was. It's just overflowin' with cattle-drivers, road-agents, prospectors, gun-slingers, gamblers, and women. ...Women'll do things to ya you'll never forget." Doc Potter: "They'll give ya disease you'll never forget."

Ben Wade: Well, would you look at all this? You all spared no expense this time, Byron. I gotta say, though, it's probably cheaper just to let me rob the damn thing.
