MOVIE REVIEW – 3:10 TO Yuma – bad ending

December 1, 2007

While the movie has lots of action, and Russell Crowe is great, the ending

leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Our “Willing suspension of disbelief” is violated when the gang leader identifies with his captor so much (Stockholm Syndrome) that when he gets free, he SHOOTS HIS OWN GANG that got him free and then jumps on the train and surrenders his guns, and walks behind bars as the train leaves. Surrrrrrre….this is contrary to all common sense. Then the director blows it further when the gang leader (Crowe) whistles to his horse to follow the train at the ending credits,hinting an if he does, where is his gang? –Dead.

Yuck and phooey.
