Double-bill of westerns. In '3.10 To Yuma' (2007), infamous outlaw Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) and his vicious gang of thieves and murderers plague the Southern Railroad of Arizona in the ,late 1800's. When Wade is captured, Civil War veteran Dan Evans (Christian Bale), struggling to survive on his drought-plagued ranch, volunteers to deliver Wade alive to the 3:10 to Yuma, a train that will take the killer to trial. On the trail, Evans and Wade, each from very different worlds, begin to earn each other's respect. But with Wade's outfit on their trail - and dangers at every turn - the mission soon becomes a violent, impossible journey toward each man's destiny. In 'Young Guns' (1988), young William Bonney (Emilio Estevez) joins a group of farmhands protecting a ranch and becomes 'Billy The Kid'. He and his friends set out to avenge the murder of their employer (Terence Stamp), but their vendetta becomes a bloody rampage, and they are soon the objects of a manhunt. The young stars, including Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips and Charlie Sheen, became the 'bratpack' of the mid-80s.
