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…
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…
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…

An enjoyable western, apparently based on true events. The story is, possibly for that reason, not very complex. Wyatt Earp and his brothers Virgil and Morgan come to a town called Tombstone with their wives, to settle down and relax. But they soon find out that the town is being terrorised by a bunch of cowboys. Since nobody seems to dare to stand up against them, the brothers do.
Lots of familiar faces, even though in some cases it took me a while to recognise them. Val Kilmer steals the show as the witty and fearless Doc Holliday.
Nobody delivers an "aw hell" like Kurt Russell.

honestly idk why this part is stuck in my head??
"Drunk piano player? Your probably seeing double. That's why I have two guns one for each of ya"
Billy Zane performs Shakespeare in the Wild West.
And the rest is a pretty solid Western.
- Didn't understand Behan and his motivations,
- the love-triangle goes nowhere,
- the sorta-epilogue is totally unnecessary in a 2h+ movie,
- a lot of the action is just cut-to-shreds montages
+ ... But it's hard not to love the cast.
This is watchable in a "hey, let's order some pizza and talk over it" kinda way but Jesus, this is hokey. Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer are stellar (and almost every role is filled out by a familiar face) but I thought the decision to turn most action sequences into a montage was really disappointing, especially for a movie so damn long. It's fine.
Why, it's the drunk piano player. You're so drunk, you can't hit nothin'. In fact, you're probably seeing double.
Doc Holliday: I have two guns, one for each of ya.
Everything you can expect from classic american westerns are here. There are badass characters on both sides with cool qoutes, gunfights (at O.K. Corral, no less), big magnificent mustaches, and a lots of romance.
Kurt Russell is great as Wyatt Earp, and Val Kilmer is really interesting as Doc Holliday, and I think he has the best lines in the movie.
It's a fun movie to watch, good action scenes with some very funny ones, but also with couple of scenes that I think are little stupid. Also women aren't interesting at all in this movie.
Those who like westerns should give this movie a chance.
