      Last week my son and I went to see the new Russell Crowe movie 3:10 to Yuma. Although this was a remake of an oold 1957 film starring Glenn Ford as Ben Wade I was surprized at how well this was done.

      Russel Crowe gave an outstanding and charmismatic performance of the outlaw, and I enjoyed the performance of Christian Bale much more than I did of Van Heflin as the rancher.

      This film is about an


      outlaw that really has a good side to him.

      Yes he robs trains and stagecoaches.

      yes he is the leader of a ruthless gang, and yes he commits murder, but Russel Crowe brought out the better side of Ben Wade.

      During the dialog between Crowe and Bale, insights into their past charachters are revealed, Wade’s mother (Crowe) abandoned him when he was eight years old, left him with only a Bible as company and he was forced to make ...


      • choices that developed his charachter.

        Bale was a Civil War veteran, who happened to be a sharpshooter from Massachuesttes, displaced and living with his family to Arizona, with a disability, he lost his leg during the war, he is faced with the aspect of the railroad trying to take his land, a son with TB, another son who is entering his early teens and is rebellious, and a wife that has misplaced her love for him.

        He takes

        the job of escorting Ben Wade to Yuma, and during their travels together they begin to understand one another.

        THere was a lot of action and suspense, and for a while it was nice to watch a good old fashion western come to life on the big screen again, even if it was a remake it was well done.

        I would recommend this to anyone.

        Well done.

        I acutually believe that Crowe may get an Oscar nomination out of this.
