A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive partner Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild F.B.I. Agent, Richie DiMaso, who pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and the Mafia.
Rancher Dan Evans heads into Bisbee to clear up issues concerning the sale of his land when he witnesses the closing events of a stagecoach robbery led by famed outlaw Ben Wade. Shortly thereafter, Wade is captured by the law in Bisbee and Evans finds himself one of the escorts who will take Wade to the 3:10 to Yuma train in Contention for the reward of $200. Evans's effort to take Wade to the station is in part an effort to save his land but also part of an inner battle to determine whether he can be more than just a naive rancher in the eyes of his impetuous and gunslinging son William Evans. The transport to Contention is hazardous and filled with ambushes by Indians, pursuits by Wade's vengeful gang and Wade's own conniving and surreptitious demeanor that makes the ride all the more intense.Written by
Dan Evans (Christian Bale) uses a Spencer carbine chambered for .56-56, a Colt 1851 Navy revolver with a Richards-Mason conversion to fire cartridges (identical to the revolver carried by William (Logan Lerman)), and a Remington 1889 sawed off shotgun. Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) uses a Colt 1873 single action chambered for .45 long Colt, with a gold crucifix inlaid in the ebony grips. Charlie Prince (Ben Foster) carries two 1869 Smith & Wesson Schofields, chambered in .45 caliber, with custom cross-draw holsters. Byron McElroy (Peter Fonda) carries the same 1889 shotgun Evans later uses. The coach in the beginning of the movie is fitted with a Colt Gatling gun, and the two shooters inside have Winchester 1873 rifles chambered in .44-40 caliber. See more »
After Byron is shot in the stomach, he is taken to a doctor for emergency care. But rather than having a simple bleeding hole where the bullet penetrated, his stomach is completely torn open. This type of extreme trauma is inconsistent with a single bullet entry wound. See more »

Russell Crowe's name is not used in the end credits when crediting his assistant, driver, stand-in, dialect coach, costumer, hair stylist and makeup artist; instead, his character's name, Ben Wade, is used. See more »
