It's great to see a western again.

\"3:10 to Yuma\" is the first western since \"Open Range\" way back in 2003. Do you think the western is making a comeback? Yes, I do so. for three reasons 1) The TV movie \"Broken Trail\" won thye Emmy for Best Mini series. 2) the new Brad Pitt movie of Jesse james will be out shorrtly. 3) this move which I called a classic. \"3:10 to Yuma\" is about bringing a leader of a gang to justice. all they have to do is to bring him to the 3:10 train to Yuma,\" but it won\'t going to be easly. Russell Crowe is great in a rare villain performance. Let\'s hope that \"3:10 to Yuma\" will be a start of a western revival.

The film was decent until they get to the town. What a messed up stupid way to end a good western.

It was as if the Director said "Ok, lets see how bad we can make this ending!".

There was absolutely no believability to it what so ever!

Despite some very good performances, this movie has way too many plot holes for anyone but those with the highest ability to suspend disbelief.

Christian Bale is great as the hard-working rancher just trying to do right by his family and his own moral code. Russell Crowe definitely oozes with charm in his role as the charismatic bad-guy that everyone is trying to get on the train to the Yuma prison.

I'm a fan of westerns, and I'm willing to let a lot of things slide, but there are actions in the third act of this movie that just don't make sense. While I understand his final act, Wade's character changes motivations too many times once they get to the town, and it makes you stop and think things like "Wait a minute, why don't they just shoot the bad guys that are 20 feet away??"

The sound mix for this movie is very effective, and I can definitely see why it was up for an Oscar nomination for Best Sound.

I've seen better Westerns, but I've also seen worse. The performances here make up for the deficiencies in the screenplay.
