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.
