3:10 to Yuma (2007)
Westerns are back, gritty, "real" and all that. 3:10's a remake and throws a little bit of the adventure back in to the mix.
Bale plays a downtrodden, disabled rancher to Crowe's charming outlaw. Bale has kid issues, well he has all sorts of issues and he aims to sort them out by helping escort Crowe to the train of the title.
It's not bad, but a few times i drifted from the screen, and I wasn't left feeling much by the end except the need to go and get a drink.
The highlight (apart from Alan Tudyk) is Ben Foster as Charlie Prince, awesome performance.
Bring on The Dark Knight ;)
