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.
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.
Un mix apprezzabile di baffoni, mascelle da duri e pistoleri velocissimi, che segna uno dei pochi punti in cui la carriera di Cosmatos tocca la sufficienza. Russel e Kilmer regalano delle buone performance, nel corso di un film che ha una trama con dei grossi difetti, ma nel complesso decente.
I bei vecchi western di qualità sono morti da anni, comunque.
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.
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.
