3:10 to Yuma

In 3:10 to Yuma a group of law-men in the wild, wild west are escorting an outlaw to the 3:10 train to Yuma for incarceration. Problem is, he's the leader of an outlaw gang and he's not going without a fight .... oh yeah, his gang's lookin' to rescue him too. The bullets and blood fly. The outlaw is not only a quick draw brute, but he's a bible quoting, smooth talker. This is a pretty cool story. The good guy is played by Christian Bale, as a rancher who gets caught up in the journey. The bad guy is played by Russel Crowe. They play off each other well. Ben Foster is the bad ass of the gang. Not only does he look great, but he carries off the "I'm so bad you don't even want to look at me" attitude without a word. Though the ending left me a little flat, this was a decent gun totin' western ...... fun stuff.
P.S. Loved the music!

You're right about the music & Foster as I ran out of room in my review (and completely forgot about the music as it was very cool).

But that ending just gets worse and worse in my mind as I think about it now. I hate when an ending is so bad that it effects the rest of a movie so negatively in my mind.

Even the folks siting in front of me were complaining about the ending. I got it, but it wasn't very satisfying.
