The greatest Western of all time?
29 August 2004 | by (UNITED KINGDOM) – See all my reviews

The 3:10 to Yuma must surely be in any fan of the 5o's Western genre top 10. Glenn Ford is at his best as outlaw and gang leader Ben wade, it does not take him long to shoot someone, ride into town and then proceed to chat the local barmaid up. When captured he goes one better and makes a play for his armed escorts wife! Van Heflin is superb and worthy of an Oscar in his role as the hard up rancher making a pay day out of being Fords captor.

The tension that mounts as Heflin & Ford wait for the train to arrive at the station whilst surrounded by Fords gang is unbearable, and the twist at the end is both unexpected and brilliant in its delivery.
