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.
The movie has serious flaws, but I love it all the same because of the great lead performances. Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday and Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp are a powerful duo. A fun, entertaining western that I love.
This is one badass film that borrows heavily from Peckinpah's style but it is still the most badass representation of the story of Wyatt Earp and the most accurate. Also this cast is filled with great actors including Kurt Russell who is the best Wyatt Earp the screen has ever had.
