A re-view from my pre-teens (I'm on vacation). I thought this was something else (maybe you know what it is?), another mediocre late 80's/ early 90's Western with some big stars, but the pinnacle is a shootout in a house, dude rolls out of a trunk to shoot some dudes... what is that film? Anyways, I'd drink all day with Doc, best roll Val has ever taken, and he is the main staple that holds this stable together.
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.
