3:10 to Yuma

   28 January 2008, early evening

I just finished watching 3:10 to Yuma. Russell Crowe plays an outlaw, Christian Bale plays a regular man trying to escort him to a prison train. They both deliver great performances. It’s being billed as the best Western since Unforgiven. I think Unforgive is a better movie: this one is far more traditional. The ending and some of the characterization is a bit hollywood, but all in all it’s a pretty solid western. It’s really well done, certainly well worth watching.

  1. yes, definitely a good performance by an ensemble cast. russell crowe at his usual best and christian bale is growing into a class act as well.

    the best russell crowe performance this year was def ‘american gangster’. no one does ‘tough / nice guy’ quite like him!

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
