Do you have two hours of your life that you’re just itching to waste? If so, “3:10 to Yuma” is just for you. I was unfortunate enough to see this film last month and all I can say is that the chicken quesadillas I had during the movie at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse Theater were the best part of my experience. Basically, the movie follows Christian Bale in the role of a down-on-his-luck rancher who must save his family by escorting a clicheed wild west gunman, Russell Crowe, halfway across the state to catch the 3:10 train to prison. The film just couldn’t hold my attention as they slowly traveled from point to point. Also, I would sooner believe that aliens could have come down from space and ended the movie like Close Encounters rather than believe the way the movie actually unfolds. Save your money or go see Superbad instead of this one.
