Silverado

( 11 )

Overview

Lawrence Kasdan's Silverado is a fond hark back to the all-star, big-budget westerns of the 1950s and 1960s. The various plotlines converge at the town of Silverado, held in thrall by crooked sheriff Brian Dennehy and his behemoth "deputies." The four disparate heroes--Kevin Kline, Kevin Costner, Scott Glenn and Danny Glover--prepare to do battle against Dennehy for personal reasons ranging from mercenary to altruistic. Sidelines characters include duplicitous, dandified gambler Jeff Goldblum, frontier widow ...

The four disparate heroes--Kevin Kline, Kevin Costner, Scott Glenn and Danny Glover--prepare to do battle against Dennehy for personal reasons ranging from mercenary to altruistic. Sidelines characters include duplicitous, dandified gambler Jeff Goldblum, frontier widow Rosanna Arquette and gimlet-eyed saloon owner Linda Hunt. The film is stolen hands-down by Kevin Costner, playing an irresponsible young gunslinger who never speaks when hootin' and hollerin' will do. A classic, High Noon-style showdown caps this rousing retro western.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Mindful of classic horse-opera conventions but determined to strike a more naturalistic tone, Silverado is a sprawling, fast-paced western that, upon its theatrical release in 1985, delighted younger moviegoers who heretofore had disdained such films. Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan was no stranger to refurbishing moribund genres, having breathed new life into film noir several years earlier with Body Heat. Kasdan’s casting had a lot to do with Silverado’s contemporary feel: Of his four protagonists, only Scott Glenn fit the mold of the "strong, silent type" popularized by such erstwhile westerners as Gary Cooper; fellow gunslingers Kevin Kline, Danny Glover, and Kevin Costner never looked like anything other than baby boomers playing cowboys. Supporting players Rosanna Arquette, Jeff Goldblum, and John Cleese were also unlikely choices for a period western. But Kasdan’s casting sense was hardly a drawback, as the positive audience reception proved. Silverado, which intertwines the destinies of four drifters, offers rousing action scenes including several superbly staged shootouts, dastardly villains especially crooked sheriff Brian Dennehy, and panoramic vistas. Moreover, it’s simultaneously respectful and insouciant, which probably explains why the film's audience has grown over the years. The Collector's Edition DVD, which sports a new transfer, a making-of documentary, and production notes, will no doubt continue that trend.
All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
On the heels of his top-notch script for Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), a film which single-handedly revived the long-dead cliffhanger, writer/director Lawrence Kasdan reimagines another vintage genre for modern audiences, this time the Western, with equally delightful and successful results. An absolutely first-rate piece for which some credit must be given to the filmmaker's brother, co-writer, and producer Mark Kasdan, a longtime aficionado of classic oaters, the film manages to be respectful to its cinematic roots while at the same time displaying a welcome, intelligent irony and some playful cheek. Casting is a virtual primer on how to fit the right actor to the correct role, but then, the brothers Kasdan give their stars some juicy parts with which to work. In particular, Kevin Kline shines as a troubled antihero equivocating over moral choices with a very modern detachment from his surroundings that intentionally comes across as sometimes Zen-like, sometimes weak-kneed. Kevin Costner is triumphant in his youthful breakthrough part, joyfully leaping into his role with a zest and energy sadly lacking in many of his later films. To top it all off, the film boasts a rich number of supporting players and an environment so lovingly realized, it could be a Robert Altman film if it weren't so lighthearted. Its frolicsome tone and sense of humor may make it difficult for some to take so seriously, but Silverado is a genuinely great Western. It ranks with McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971), Unforgiven (1992), and the television miniseries Lonesome Dove (1989) as among the best examples of its lamentably scant form in the latter 20th century.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
1/2
This movie is more sophisticated and complicated than the Westerns of my childhood, and it is certainly better looking and better acted. But it has the same spirit; it awards itself the carefree freedom of the Western myth itself...Silverado is the work of Lawrence Kasdan, the man who wrote Raiders of the Lost Ark, and it has some of the same reckless brilliance about it.

    Good even for non-Western fans

    I'm not a huge Western fan, but I love this movie. It has a cast of now popular actors: Kevin Kline, Kevin Costner, Jeff Goldblum, Danny Glover, Scott Glenn, Brian Dennehy, and probably others that I've forgotten, all when they were really young. This is such a good guy vs. bad guy movie that we all love. Our characters all join together and, of course, beat the bad guys, although not easily and not without sad casualties. It's a really good western, made so mostly by the talent of Kevin Kline in the lead role, plus the other actors who have gone on to become great. Lots of humor in this one too.

    A modern Classic

    This is one of the best modern westerns ever made. It was made at a time when everyone thought the westerns were dead. It has great stars, great script and cinematography. It's got plenty of action, laughs and even a little romance. A classic movie made by a classic director.

    Too bad there isn't a 6 Star option

    This is a Western made for everyone who loves Westerns. John Wayne would be proud. Simple values; good wins out over evil, crime doesn't pay. The Plot and characters are typical, but the blending of terrific actors and a screenplay including a bit of a ''wink'' to the western lovers make it anything but typical. It's perfect. Looking for a good movie to share with the kids or if you want to feel like a kid sitting in the balcony on Saturday morning... SILVERADO is a great bet.
