San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The finest American Westerns have a characteristic that 3:10 to Yuma shares. In a way that's almost mystical, they suggest a truth beyond the specifics of the tale.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
James Mangold's 3:10 to Yuma restores the wounded heart of the Western and rescues it from the morass of pointless violence.

Unlike Glenn Ford, a soft-spoken studio star who was cast against type as Wade 50 years ago, Crowe is a perfect fit. Not because of his bad boy behavior offscreen, but because he can blend charm and menace better than anyone.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
A riveting remake of a pretty terrific 1957 western about manhood, fatherhood and honor.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Both actors are among the best, most intuitively creative we have, and whatever transpires offscreen in Crowe’s case, onscreen they only serve their characters. Neither man showboats here, and it’s a thrill to watch them work.

Maybe this redo didn’t need so many bells and whistles, but Mangold brings it home.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
This is how a Western today tries to give us more bang for the buck. By working this hard to be a crowd-pleaser, though, it may please fewer crowds.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Captures a potent sense of the Old West with its multidimensional raw performances and captivating final shootout sequence. But with its emphasis on emotional truths, it transcends the confines of a cowboy movie.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
The strengths of the first "3:10 To Yuma" were enhanced by its proportionality -- an intimate story told in 92 minutes. The story is no bigger in the new version, which goes on for 117 minutes. And it's certainly not better.
