**1/2. I understand that this film is about Law and Family. Is your fiancée already part of the Family before the Law registers your marriage? If you have the impression that the Law is unfair to your Family, is it right to take it into your own hands ? Kevin Costner and friends are summoned here by L. Kasdan in order to answer these questions. I liked the duels when Kevin is the only one who doesn't miss his target.
I really did give Wyatt Earp a chance, but it confirmed my suspicion that Costner is an ego-maniacal jerk. The movie is just about him. Look at him, he's so great and glorious. Also, a friend of mine met him and said he was a total jerk. Tombstone is an ensemble piece. It's richer in tone, and it's more than just saying how great he was. This is just your run of the mill hero porn.
Western epic about Wyatt Earp should have been fantastic but the film feels overlong and Kevin Costner has a very monotonous appearance. Better is the supporting cast that I found to be excellent. While the story reeks of over-familiarity I ended up feeling that the film has gotten a much worse reputation than it deserve.
Retour à nouveau réussi au genre western, neuf années après la réalisation de "Silverado", pour Lawrence Kasdan qui balance entre le respect de la légende mythique et une approche plus authentique du personnage. Le résultat s'avère souvent inégal et long, mais non pas dépourvu d'intérêt, comme la plupart des films du cinéaste... www.cinefiches.com
