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

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 »
Just saw the sneak preview last night and was excited to see this remake.
Very good to the plot and holds true throughout A definite must see movie for all you Western an Lovers out there and a genuine good performance by Russel Crowe as "Ben Wade" as well as Christian Bale an Dan Evans.
I loved the original and this did it justice.
Go and see 3:10 to Yuma and enjoy Grab a box of popcorn , sit back for a wild west ride.
