3:10 to Yuma
First the exciting short story “High Noon” in 1953 then made into a movie in 1957 but neither compare to the remake of the film made this year 3:10 to Yuma. Russell Crowe plays a ruthless leader of a fearsome gang who is captured and sent to a town to catch the 3:10 train to Yuma. Christian Bale is a local rancher missing one leg and Peter Fonda is an old bounty hunter who help the sheriff and several men take the outlaw to the town of contention 3 days across the desert. This is a fantastic film that hits on all cylinders. It has a compelling story, gripping action, smart dialogue and my wife says stunning scenery. The performances by the supporting cast were just as good and in some instances even superior then the lead actors. A perfect ending was narrowly averted with a scene that totally goes against human nature. (No Little Joe, Hoss and Ben Cartright didn’t ride into the middle of the gang and begin shooting everybody.) This is one of the best westerns of all time and I’m giving it an A rating.
This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
