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.
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.
"You gonna do somethin'? Or are you just gonna stand there and bleed?"
This film could be it's own genre..... Mustacheploitation.
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,…
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…
The dialogue, the acting, the moustaches, all are amazing.
Val Kilmers a cool dude
Enjoyable, quotable, and memorable. Doesn't take itself too serious in a good way.
This movie follows the legendary Wyatt Earp after he retires from being a lawman and moves west with his brothers. He wants to settle down and go into business to make some money but that doesn't last long. He is forced to help his brothers as they seek to bring law to the town and defend the people from the ruthless Cowboy gang. Wyatt's friend, Doc Holiday joins the men as they bring their own brand of justice to Tombstone.
This is to westerns what The Untouchables is to mobstermovies. A badly written, badly acted movie , based on a true story, except it doesnt feel like a true story, because its goofy as hell.
How do you fuck up with such an amazing cast? i do not understand. There are no faces you havent allready seen before in some movie or TV-Show. But that doesnt help. The script is awfully written, with one bad punchline after the other. The lines arent even delivered well, which weird, seing as Kurt Russell, one of the baddest motherfuckers alive delivers half of them.
No actions seem warranted whatsoever. Things just happened without it feeling as if there was a real connection between…
Good Comedy, shitty western.
Loe this film, but that slow-mo shot near the river of the shotgun blast gets me every time.
How to be a man 101
Mediocre acting from most of the cast, however Val Kilmer plays the best Doc Holiday I have seen on screen.
Although this movie wasn't anything spectacular it was a classic western. As a fan of the genre as a whole, I can hardly bring myself to dislike something like this, a fun and exciting gun slinging movie that is very enjoyable.
