3:10 to Yuma

3:10 to Yuma ★★★★

Fundamentally excellent western with great character psychology ripped from the Elmore Leonard source. You can be brave, an excellent shot, have a great outfit, but what wins the day are the virtues you won't yield and the patience to make your move at just the right time. I love westerns generally, but sometimes it takes a lot for them to feel tense and affecting, but thanks to the great performances and story, this hits both marks dead on.
