A re-make of the classic 1957 western of the same name. This film stars two of Hollywood's hottest actors, Academy Award Winner Russell Crowe (Best Actor, Gladiator, 2000) and Christian Bale (Batman Begins). In the film, a rancher (Bale) struggles to support his ranch and family during a long draught. Desperately needing money to build a well, he takes an assignment to transport a notorious felon (Crowe), in the hands of authorities, to Yuma for imprisonment. But, once the two meet, the criminal tries to tempt him with--in exchange for allowing him to escape--an offer of much more money than the rancher ever expected, the result of a hidden loot. High action and adventure directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, Identity).
