3:10 to Yuma

Went to see 3:10 to Yuma with Mr. H., my sister and her husband last night. I have to say, I'm not really a western movie kinda gal. But I did enjoy this movie. The plot is your basic good trying to do good for his family (Christian Bale) bad guy trying to do bad (Russell Crowe) and they manage to come to an understanding. The end was a little too typical, but as Mr. H. said, they kinda painted themselves into a corner and it ended the only way it really could.

What I was really impressed with was every one's accents. Now, relative newcomer Dallas Roberts is from Houston (go figure) so I'm not that overly impressed with his southern/western accent. Bale continues to astound me with his ability to not sound Welsh. And Crowe was not only impressive with his accent, but this is the first movie in a while that he's been in that I thought he did a really good job in. Now I remember why I like him as an actor.

OK, so the accents are the best part of this movie. But I keep forgetting to take my notebook with me whenever I see a movie so I can write a decent review. I wasn't dissapointed other than with the ending (which I won't spoil) but it's not too much of a surprise. Overall, I give this a go to if you have the time and a definite rent.
