3:10 to Yuma | Ratings & Reviews

"In this remake of a 1957 western, a small-time family man and rancher, Dan Evans (Christian Bale), agrees to hold captured outlaw Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) as he awaits the 3:10 train to go to court in Yuma. Desperate for the money, Dan is putting his life on the line - threatened with his life by the outlaw’s gang, who are in hot pursuit."

"James Mangold's remake walks a fine line in retaining many of the original's qualities while smartly shaking things up a bit."


"This is by far (Mangold's) most sustained and evocative work."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"Maybe this redo didn't need so many bells and whistles, but Mangold brings it home."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"The story is no bigger in the new version... And it's certainly not better."

Wall Street JournalWall Street Journal

"A serviceable addition to the current western revival."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Lean, almost absurdly satisfying."

Boston GlobeBoston Globe

"An extremely well-acted and well-directed remake..."

New York PostNew York Post

"It just tells a story and, seemingly incidentally - though no movie can be this good by accident - it achieves an elusive mythic quality."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"About the only remarkable thing the film offers is the young actor Ben Foster... When he's on screen, nobody else is visible."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"A decent Western... mainly because of the acting duel between the straight-shooting Bale and the untamed Crowe."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"The performances are electric."


"It’s a pleasure to revisit the frontier in a drama which feels far more vital than mere nostalgic homage."

Time OutTime Out

"It's strongly directed, and never anything other than watchable, galloping along at a heart-racing rate..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A taut modern take on a lesser classic..."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"A creditable remake - no better than the original but different enough to stand on its considerable merits."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"Nothing terribly original happens in this remake... but everything happens smoothly and with grace."


"James Mangold's 3:10 to Yuma restores the wounded heart of the Western and rescues it from the morass of pointless violence..."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"In the battle of the leading men, Crowe's character has a slight edge, and the actor really makes the most of it, showing us how boyishly mischievous charm and utter venality can exist without seeming contradiction in the same being. But Bale builds to a pretty impressive boil himself after laying back for about three quarters of the film..."

Premiere MagazinePremiere Magazine

"Remake of a classic is packed with action and good performances but lacks subtlety and nuance."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"This isn't Sergio Leone but was a far better watch than I had expected, and I left the cinema feeling quite replete."


"A largely compelling ride on the strength of a powerful cast led by Russell Crowe and Christian Bale..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Mangold has time to build sensational, studied characterizations, brilliant pacing (courtesy Mike McCuster, who also edited the director’s previous effort, the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line”), and blistering action..."

Film ThreatFilm Threat

"3:10 to Yuma is a stylish remake of a 50-year-old cowboy film, making this a murderously modern, yet satisfyingly old-fashioned, western."
