One of the most entertaining westerns of the last 30 years. Great action, set design, and pacing. Val Kilmer puts together his greatest performance. Ensemble is star studded and very cohesive. Not the best Western ever by any means but possibly the most accessible and fun to watch.
A re-view from my pre-teens (I'm on vacation). I thought this was something else, another mediocre western from the late 80's/ early 90's... I'd drink all day with Doc, best roll Val has ever taken, and he is the main staple that holds this stable together. ' Merica.
Pretty straightforward story, nothing too complex. All around acting was decent although Val Kilmer was amazing! The standard 90's movie music was absolutely horrible, especially in a western. Maybe if it was a rendition of a Jane Austen book the music would have worked.
As George Pan Cosmatos isn't an auteur, I didn't expect much from Tombstone. In fact, I only saw it because of Val Kilmer whose filmography is in my opinion fascinating. And I liked it ! Each part, and there are a lot of parts in Tombstone, was a feast for the eyes and the ears. Really, this film will stay as a guilty pleasure in my memory. Recommended.
