originality? it's a remake, on a film that's an adaptation of a short..
The second adaptation of Leonard's "3:10" proves to be a glorious throwback to western corruption and thrilling action sequences. Between the beautiful landscapes, the dusty horse chases, and a final bloody shootout that's rivalled only by something like "The Wild Bunch", it's hard to find fault. One of the few great modern western films... it's a shame they're getting harder and harder to come by.
The last 30 minutes are extraordinary. Fucking hell, the rest of the 90 minutes too.
Highly enjoyable ,but there doesnt seeem to be any film techniques or anything differant that make this movie truly great or original. Also ridden with archetypes. Crowe being a murderer who reades the bibleand quotes it(has gun with crucifix on it). SOME originality would be cool thanks james mangold.
