Review of film: "3:10 TO YUMA"

        On August 31, 2007, I started offering Internet-based Reviews & Reports on…  It was comparatively restrictive (only allowing 1000 characters per review), & those limitations eventually caused me to start offering such work on OTHER web-sites…  At this time, (since I’ve added a “SEARCH” function), I’m going to ADD those older items to the VOICE OF SILENCEweb-site, one-by-one (starting with this one:)…

Review of film:   “3:10 TO YUMA  --  Don't Be Late For the 3:10  = 

                   [ RATING:  8.25 of 10 stars ] 

Date Rated: Aug 31, 2007 | Rel. Date: Sep 7, 2007
This is an exceptionally WELL-DONE thriller, with fine acting by all the leads (RUSSELL CROWE [as the outlaw leader], CHRISTIAN BALE [as the problem-filled "Good Guy" rancher], LOGAN LERMAN [as Bale's oldest son], BEN FOSTER [as Crowe's assistant], and admirable work by the numerous "side" characters…

…  The Western (a remake of a 1957 classic about trying to get a prisoner to jail via an expected train) is suspenseful, well-photographed & enjoyable (except for the loyalty-challenged end, which -- in retrospect -- made little "sense" psychologically)…

…  But, since the leads take such a "bite" with their roles, I rate this as HIGHLY Recommended.
