The rousing new Western 3:10 to Yuma has the sweep of an epic and the economy of a stopwatch.
It also has one of the best ad taglines of the year: "Time waits for one man." The man the ad refers to is master stagecoach bandit Ben Wade (Russell Crowe), but the key to this ruggedly beautiful movie is that it really applies to everyone.
3:10 to Yuma (Lionsgate) Starring Christian Bale, Russell Crowe, Ben Foster, Alan Tudyk, Gretchen Mol, Peter Fonda. Directed by James Mangold. Rated R. Time 117 minutes.
