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…
Irgendwie passt hier so vieles nicht zusammen, dass kein wirklicher Spaß aufkommen will. Versteht mich nicht falsch, ich mag Kurt Russel, aber die Rolle kauf ich ihm nicht ab, der Mustache wirkt so dermaßen unecht, dass es stört. Die einzige halbwegs gute Leistung des Films bringt Val Kilmer. Was den Film selbst angeht, er braucht lange bis er in Fahrt kommt und dann ist er auch schon wieder vorbei.
Auch wenn das wohl meine häufigste Phrase in Rezensionen ist, hier wurde viel Potential verschenkt, dabei fand ich den Film damals so gut.
"All right Clanton, you called down the thunder and now you’ve got it. You see that? It says United States Marshall. Take a good look at him Ike because that’s how your gonna end up. The cowboys are finished you understand me? I see a red sash, I kill the man wearing it. So run you cur, run, tell all the other curs that law is coming, you tell I’m coming, and Hell’s coming with me you hear? Hell’s coming with me."
THOSE FUCKING MOUSTACHES THOUGH BRO!!!!!!!
I don't think they had enough of 90's best actors in this
First rewatch in years, although I was surprised how much dialogue I remembered from this. Val Kilmer is absolutely fantastic here and without him this would likely be 3-stars from me. As it is, the movie just holds onto the 4-stars I rated this back in the day. Lots of good characters on both sides, and Kurt Russell is solid as Earp.
Still, it's very overly melodramatic in parts (with Russell as much a culprit as anyone else). The third act is weak and weirdly jags between head baddies being killed and then just montages of more random henchmen being taken care of. Also, the most bizarre epilogue I can remember, with the out-of-nowhere final line of "Tom Mix wept." Wtf?
Nobody ever told Johnny Ringo, “When you pull a gun, kill a man.” This is the tragedy of Johnny Ringo.
This movie is a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm a fan of the genre of the good guys shoot the bad guys (including the Untouchables and Gangster Squad). The film has a strong cast of characters who played by character actors. 1993 was an odd year because they were two Doc holiday's. Dennis Quad's in the New Western "Wyatt Earp". I like both performances, my friend of mine described that "Wyatt Earp"s Doc Holliday he is the one that probably existed and the Doc Holliday in "Tombstone" is the Doc Holliday we wish existed. Michael Biehn gives a great performance as the gunslinger Ringo, the scenes with him and Val Kilmer's Doc make the whole movie. If you haven't seen it what's wrong with you? See it.
Corny and unrealistic, though based on real events, which is confusing. Kilmer was awesome.
