Back to baddies

Russell Crowe has impressed critics with his latest role in 3:10 to Yuma. After a string of less successful films, Crowe is back to what he does best: playing “the charming baddie”. A remake of the 1957 film of the same title, 3:10 to Yuma forms part of this year’s Western genre revival. Crowe stars alongside Christian Bale as Ben Wade, “a sociopath whose twinkly charm masks both his ruthlessness and his perverse integrity”. Director James Mangold’s previous films include Girl, Interrupted and Walk the Line.
