Westerns aren't my thing, but the impressive cast (including the recently deceased Bill Paxton and Powers Boothe) got me curious.
The film is a semi-biographical account of the famous Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell), and some of the famous events surrounding him.
The start is admittedly slow (the film is over two hours) but it does begin to pick up around the halfway mark, when the tensions in the small town begin to boil over, and Wyatt and his brothers are forced to intervene to help stop a group of dangerous hooligans.
I didn't love the film, but it's very well made. The acting is great, the romance scenes aren't annoying, and most of the characters are likable (especially Val Kilmer). It's really good, even to a Western cynic like me.
