I've never seen the original and so I was completely in awe of this movie. I was also struck by the questions that it asks us to take a look at:

What does it mean to be human?
What does it mean to have honor?
What does it mean to sacrifice?

And finally...am I the only woman who posts comments here? :)

Also, I would love to discuss why the thief did what he did in the end, but I don't want to give it away. :(


Kim, you're not the only girl who reads here.

If you're referring to Ben Wade getting back on the train, I believe he is trying to help Evans complete the mission. If Wade didn't get on the train, Butterfield does not need to fulfill his end of the bargain (returning Evans' son to mom and giving them $1000). It was a moment for Wade to be more honorable.

Wade also mentioned he'd escaped from that prison twice before and when he called his horse at the end...well, I think Wade was saying he'll get out anyway.
