Justice is coming.
Legendary marshal Wyatt Earp, now a weary gunfighter, joins his brothers Morgan and Virgil to pursue their collective fortune in the thriving mining town of Tombstone. But Earp is forced to don a badge again and get help from his notorious pal Doc Holliday when a gang of renegade brigands and rustlers begins terrorizing the town.
"You gonna do somethin'? Or are you just gonna stand there and bleed?"
This film could be it's own genre..... Mustacheploitation.
Imagine if Jack Sparrow was in a western.
That's Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in Tombstone.
It's even more awesome than how it sounds.
This is the most fun I've had watching a Western since...Ever?
This movie is built upon it's characters. That's nothing unusual for a Western film. They almost always try to forge out some God-like hero figure and a nastier than Satan villain. And some of my favorite films in the genre do a good job of putting some memorable characters on screen. But the characters are here aren't just memorable, they are having a blast.
Kurt Russel plays Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer plays Doc Holliday. It's basically a buddy comedy. Wyatt is an old man wanting to retire and find some peace from all these hooligans he's been putting away for so long. He rides to the next town…
George P. Cosmatos's "Tombstone" is a well-rendered, completely entertaining Western. Concerned with themes of honor and duty, the film tells a historical and oft-told tale of lawlessness and those who repelled it in the dusty American southwest. Though never thoughtful or subdued, the film is an outstanding and robust genre outing.
Kurt Russell stats as Wyatt Earp in this 1993 adaptation of the US Marshall's based-in-fact legend. Following the period in which the retired lawman moves to Tombstone, Arizona to settle into a quiet life with his brothers, "Tombstone" offers no new angles on Earp or his family; but the story is compelling, nonetheless.
Cosmatos fills his film with an ill-tamed mix of shots and styles. Low angles, high angles,…
FYI. The more I like a movie...the longer my reviews seem to be.....be prepared as I love this movie.
I finally got my wife to watch one of my favorite movies of all-time .....1993's Tombstone. In Tombstone...Kurt Russell plays Wyatt Earp while Val Kilmer plays Doc Holliday and covers their lives before, during and after the famous "Gunfight at the OK Coral".
Ten Reasons Why I Love This Movie So Much.
1. The cast the cast the cast. Almost every speaking line is done by a known to me actor or actress...how many big cast (I count 25 memorable roles) movies can say that?
2. Movie connects with westerns of the past. Robert Mitchum does the narration....Charlton Heston plays a…
Over the years there have been numerous movies based on the life of Kansas lawman Wyatt Earp and the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral. Although encompassing that event here, this takes a broader look at one of the old West's most memorable names.
George P Cosmatos only made ten feature films before succumbing to cancer back in 2005. This, along with Rambo First Blood Part II are his most well known films and both have plenty of gunplay and a penchant for action. Starring Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Bill Paxton and Sam Elliott as his brothers Morgan and Virgil, the plot is a simple good versus evil affair as the lawmen take on a ruthless group of…
I just listened to an audiobook of a novel about Wyatt Earp, so watching this was a foregone conclusion.
This movie has the most amazing mustaches.
brilliant film well cast
Good old-fashioned western with just the right dose (if not a little bit more) of Hollywood. Stellar performances from Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer in particular and only slightly hampered by a somewhat anti-climactic finale.
A very good western, though probably second tier, below the good the bad and the ugly and Patt Garrett and Billy the kid
LOVE this movie. Flaws and all. Everyone is so good in this movie. Mad props to Val Kilmer and his portrayal of Doc Holliday. He chewed the scenery like a grazing buffalo.
A movie where, if on, I will watch balls naked on the couch till finished.
Growing up, you were either a "Wyatt Earp" person or a "Tombstone" person. What can I say, I made the wrong choice as a kid. Obviously I am very aware of this film's rep, but I've got to admit that when Kilmer first came on screen doing his drunk jokester routine, I thought to myself, "I don't know if I can take this Kilmer performance for 2 1/2 hours," but he won me over. This held up pretty well, and man, what a manly cast. Also, there's some pretty homoerotic stuff going on here.
My roommate's favorite movie (somehow). I thought it was solid.
