3:10 To Yuma

3:10 to Yuma: *** (Good)

310ToYuma Today's movie was an old fashioned western shoot 'em up, with good vs. lots of evil.  Russell Crowe and Christian Bale are fine to watch, both good actors and I believed their character portrayals.

I can't count the number of people who were brutally gunned down or blown up during the 117 minutes running time.  Too many.  The R rating for violence is well-deserved.

The story is about a bad man and his gang (Russell Crowe and friends), a good man and his family (Christian Bale, etc.), a bounty hunter (Peter Fonda!), and various other good and bad people.  It starts out showing just how bad the bad men are and just how regular the good man is.  The bad man is captured and most of the interesting part of the movie is when the good man & co. must escort the bad man to prison.

The Arizona scenery was nice :-)

If you are in a mood to watch over-the-top violence and good acting, then go see it.
