A better than usual remake that manage to keep itself true to the original source material and go through many of the same themes in deeper detail. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe is a good duo too but the ending is less effective that sadly go for crowd pleasing moments and don't feel as humanly true as the original.
Appena rivisto per l'ennesima volta. Sempre meraviglioso. Accoppiata Crowe-Bale da pelle d'oca. Un finale che vede trionfare il bene, ma non dal solito punto di vista, bensì portando alla luce il lato buono di un personaggio cattivo piuttosto che glorificare il personaggio buono in sè. Ben Foster altrettanto valido, più che appropriato per un folle dal grilletto facile.
One of the best, if not the best, Westerns of the first decade of the millennium. Crowe and Bale are phenomenal in their roles, guided by a tight script and great direction. The movie doesn't have a dull moment, rich with subplots and a message anyone can understand. Truly great.
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.
