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.

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.
It would be dishonest to claim this film as a radical text; almost certainly no one involved is an anti-cop socialist, certainly not the main players. Still, the depiction of law and order against organized crime blurs the line between the two to the point that the badge is no better than the red sash, to the point that every act of violence is a murder, even if it has the law behind it.
We see the Earps fighting for family and friends, but the Cowboys do the same. We see the Earps resorting to trickery (the gun in the opium den is such a nasty little moment) and celebrating vicious brutality. Yes, the Cowboys are shown to commit sins…
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 stars 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,…
I love this film dearly. It's big, brash, chock full of cliché and quotable dialogue, and has some terrific set-pieces. Considering that he's along side a bewhiskered Kurt Russell and Sam Elliott, Val Kilmer, for once, completely owns a film - he is Doc Holliday.
I'm Your Huckleberry.
Tomestone is a western film directed by George Cosmatos, it is two hours long and stars Kurt Russel. The story sees a retired lawmen and his friends trying to start up a new life in an old west town, however tensions rise, preventing this and lead to bloodshed.
You have to hand it to Tombstone, it feels very much like the little film that tried/could, it came out after the death of the western genre and just after the last grand western Unforgiven, it didn’t stand a chance nor does it hold its own against anything in the genre.
But dammit its infinitely a decent, watchable flick, one that never really does anything particular wrong or even inspired but…
im in love with doc holliday
Expecting to leave the past behind but then it comes back again in Tombstone. Wanting things to settle down and be a little quiet but then it goes back to the way that it was before.
Kurt Russell plays Wyatt Earp who is a former gun slinger decides to settle down with his brothers Morgan played by Bill Paxton and Virgil played by Sam Elliott. Traveling with their families to Tombstone, Arizona they hope to settle down and open up a business. Trouble soon finds them when they aren't looking for it when the usual cowboy gangs begin targeting them. With this being a problem the brothers are forced to pick up their guns once again and along with Wyatt's…
Toss up between this and Open Range as my favorite contemporary western. Nay, favorite western. Period.
Val Kilmer was robbed of an Oscar nomination for this. The rest of the cast, the costumes, and the sets are all great, and there are many great scenes, but Kilmer pretty much singlehandedly makes this one as good as it is. If you want to see a scene stealing supporting performance, look no further. 8/10
*makes an uncomfortably arrousing moan as movie starts*
This is a very entertaining western with a gripping story based on real events and plenty of great performances from many big-name actors. If you're a fan of the western genre and you haven't seen Tombstone yet, go remedy this situation as quickly as possible.
Starts of really boring but speeds up as it goes. Not your traditional western.
