In mount­ing a mod­ern re­make of the clas­sic 1957 western, writer-direc­tor James Man­gold has ap­plied what is best de­scribed as a tur­bocharge to pro­ceed­ings. Though the film packs an ac­tion wal­lop, the lead­ing duo of Russell Crowe (as a badass out­law) and Christian Bale (the last hon­est man in the 1870s) take ev­ery­thing to a higher level. Rough and tough, but de­void of bluff.
