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.
