    Great performances all around. I don't want to say it dragged, because the tension was kept up to pace all around, but it did kind of wait a bit to decide what it wanted to do with the characters. Bale, Crowe impress as always, I don't expect anything less. I liked the son and Peter Fonda's screen time the most. Wasn't as much action as I expected, but I was not disappointed because the movie was an enormous hit when it comes to character development - something other flicks should take a hint with. Too often do we see bland characters not getting built up before they get waxed or the credits roll (300).

    I want to give it more than 4 stars, but for some reason I can't quite give it 5/5. I definately recommend it for any fans of western movies. It captures the genre VERY well. Fans of Crowe and Bale will surely be satisfied as well.

    what the fuck ending, but good movie.

    Spoilers:





















    So Crowe just kills his gang, who stayed loyal to him by chasing his ass for miles, and places himself in the train car so Bale's characters son can look up to his dad?

    On a side note, the actor leading Crowe's gang while he is gone pisses me off. This and that other movie he was a tough guy in, Alpha Dog, just goes to show that he should be typecast as the nerdy guy. He doesn't have the 'tough' look at all.

    I dunno.. I think Ben Foster is a pretty good actor. He doesnt have the commanding of voices but he is pretty good in pretty much every other area.

    He kills his own gang who, by his own admission, are nothing more than ruthless animals. Crowe played a complex character; he is neither wholly bad nor good. It was his interaction with Bale's family and the tidbits dropped thereof (most notably his son's tuberculosis) that made Bale fully human and sympathetic. Bale wasn't just a cartoon character, he was a man struggling to make ends meet and keep his family afloat. Apparently that's worth more than a group of scumbags without conscious.

    But, as I said, he's not completely good. He's not turning himself in; he's escaped twice before from YUMA and we may reasonably infer that he'll do the same again.

    I think it was pretty badass at the end as you see the train rounding the corner as he whistles to horse and it starts running toward the traing. Has to make one think right then and there that Ben Wade was off that mother fucking train before it even got to Yuma. Acting was A+++++

    meh. movie was a clusterfuck. scene by disjointed scene.

    script was :ugh:

    crowe with that chick in the bar...
    crowe: "you feel skinny"
    woman: "i feel skinny"
    crowe: "thats ok as long as you have green eyes."
    <turns her around> "nevermind, they dont have to be green" <makeout time>

    then he mentions green eyes again when talking to bale's wife... why is he obsessed with green eyes?? is there a meaning to his green eye fetish?? doesnt matter apparently...

    then bale's lisp and geographically incorrect accent make their continual presence known.

    i then decide to push up 3 armrests next to me and take a nap and wake up to a wooden leg bale jumping rooftops. :rolleyes:
    and for some reason crowe decides to be a good guy at the end :ugh:

    I finally got to check out this movie.

    Very good, one of the better movies I have seen for sometime.

    The ending is different, thats for sure.

    For me, this was the biggest disappointment of 2007. :(

    I totally expected to like this movie, but 3/4 of the way through, it ceased to make any sense. Pulling no punches, the ending flat-out sucked!

    It was a great premise for a movie... too bad, it could have been so much better.

    It's a remake so it's not like they could take it in a very different direction.
     
  23. I approved. The ending was weird but I think it all comes down to the fact that Ben Wade respected Dan for "his" way of life: Hard-working, honest and Wade's gang gunned him down and that enraged Wade enough to kill his own men. That's how it made sense to me.

    Ben Foster was fucking awesome. Creepy and sadistic in that humorous way. "Say, you boys wouldn't be a.....posse?" Hilarious shit.

    Does anyone know if that's the ending in Leonard's short story?

    i was disappointed in this movie as well. pretty much same reasons as above.
    the only character i liked was the mean ass sidekick guy, the ending was fucking stupid though, there is no way anyone would have done that its just stupid.

    it wasn't a complete waste of time but it sure wasnt' as good as i was expecting 6/10

    So you like movies that end in a predictable manner that is done over and over again?
