Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The Wild West's most famous feud, previously the subject of no less than a dozen movies, gets its definitive screen treatment in this violent, sprawling, and historically accurate telling of the notorious gunfight at the OK Corral and its bloody aftermath. Kurt Russell heads a stellar cast, portraying legendary frontier marshal Wyatt Earp as a weary gunfighter who joins his brothers Virgil Sam Elliott and Morgan Bill Paxton as they seek their fortune in a dusty but booming Arizona mining town. When a faction composed of renegade outlaws and rustlers -- led by Curly Bill Brocius Powers Boothe and Ike Clanton Stephen Lang -- runs roughshod over Tombstone, Wyatt again dons a lawman's badge and enlists the aid of his disreputable friend Doc Holliday Val Kilmer, in wiping out the town's lawless elements. Kevin Jarre's screenplay not only packs a wealth of character and incident into this flawlessly produced retelling of the Earp-Clanton conflict; it does so by remaining largely faithful to the historical record while enhancing the dramatic impact of many actual situations. The muscular direction of George P. Cosmatos Rambo II goes a long way toward making Tombstone the most operatic of horse operas: He adds forceful emphasis to scenes delineating violence, betrayal, and tragedy. Although this film avoids the simplistic white hat/black hat formulas of yore, it is not a revisionist western, just a good old-fashioned barnburner of a movie guaranteed to rouse the long-dormant cowboy in us all. This Vista Series DVD presents the director's original cut, which Cosmatos accompanies with detailed commentary. Other extras include a Tombstone Timeline, which lists the historical events in chronological order, production featurettes with behind-the-scenes footage, original storyboards, and DVD-ROM content.
All Movie Guide
About two dozen Hollywood regulars -- from character actors on up to superstars, obscured by moustaches which practically consume their entire faces -- got together with director George P. Cosmatos for this vigorous, bloody take on the Wyatt Earp story. Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer make a soulful Earp and Doc Holliday, and the rest of the large ensemble effectively personalizes the body count. The film does a good job driving home just how difficult it was to bring peace to any region of the Old West. Even in "retirement," Earp became embroiled in one fracas after another, though his whole will was directed toward avoiding violence. But even if it makes token gestures toward non-violent idealism, this movie is really about watching a bunch of bad-ass lawmen mop the dusty streets with outlaws. And they do look tough in their matching black suits. There are several sequences of merciless mayhem guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping, in which Earp himself blows people away at close range. (It's interesting to note the usage of the term "cowboy" in the film: While modern viewers have come to think of it as neutral, describing anyone on horseback with a brimmed hat, Tombstone reminds that it was first ascribed to the lawless miscreants who wore red sashes and shot up innocent bystanders.) Among the cast of thousands, look for an early career appearance by Billy Bob Thornton, as an all-talk bully whom Earp slaps into submission.

    Best Tombstone Version Ever!

    Of any past versions of Tombstone, this one with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer top all. I would be embarrassed to tell you how many times I have watched this movie. I have it on DVD and also on my IPOD. Watching the movie on my IPOD during treadmill workouts certainly makes the time go by fast. Last year for my birthday, my better half bought me a beautifully framed wall portrait of the famous Huckleberries as shown on the front of this DVD. As I live in Arizona, it goes great with my southwestern decor. I visit the town of Tombstone every chance I get. I highly recommend this version of Tombstone. And, ladies, lots of "eye candy."

    THE BEST WESTERN EVER MADE!!!

    This particular DVD has EVERYTHING! I have the original Tombstone movie...but I had to buy the collector's edition. And I paid a lot more on mine than Barnes and Nobel charges! This movie comes with a copy of the original map drawn by Wyatt Eurp, has deleted scenes, and shows you the news paper article about what went down on the streets of Tombstone when Eurp's posse took down the cowboys; starting the war between them. Even the trials Eurp and Doc Holiday went through folling this incident; being charged for murder. The story goes into more depth and background, which the movie fails to show. Trust me...the collectors edition is a MUST HAVE for all Tombstone fans!

    Sorry Clint, This is the Greatest Western Ever Made!

    The best western ever is not "High Noon" with Gary Cooper, nor Eastwood's "Unforgiven", or "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly". Tombstone tops them all. The combination of historical accuracy, extremely talented cast, and performances of a lifetime combine to make this movie nearly flawless. Add to that a stirring and well matched musical score, outstanding costumes, photography, set selection, and a cameo with Chuck Heston is the icing on the cake. Val Kilmer should have received an Oscar. (He was robbed.) A must for anyone who loves a good story, enjoys history, or just likes a great evening of entertainment.

    "I'll Be Your Huckleberry!"

    A wonderful and traditional Western film that is based on the romantization of Wyatt Earp and his brothers and friend Doc Holliday. In fact, the Earps were just as bad as criminals as the cowboys. But this movie isn't intended to be in the genre of realism. It is in many ways, a revenge tragedy with great Biblical allusions that level the movie into the Christian duality of good vs. evil. Doc Holliday, played by Val Kilmer deserved an Oscar in my opinion.

    Our favorite and most re-viewed movie!

    Tombstone became our favorite movie when we first viewed it and it has remained since. I've lost count of how many times we've viewed it and we seldom watch a movie more than once. We purchased it on VHS and wore out the tape, we now own it on DVD. We even get more rediculous as to be able to recite nearly every line spoken in the movie! A must have in your collection.

    The best western that will ever be made...

    Tombstone is SO good. Kurt Russell does a fabulous job a Wyatt but Val Kilmer does a superb acting job as Doc Holliday. Michael Bien also rocked as Ringo, I think that anyone who has ever seen this movie loves it. 'I'm your huckleberry.'

    A Thomas Haden Church Classic!

    I am an avid fan of Thomas Haden Church. This movie is probibly one of the best he's been in. There is also a good ammount of western history in this movie. The only thing is, Thomas Haden Church's character, potrayed as a young man, was actually older in real life (how'd I figure it out? The History Channel!!! Yeah... I watch it once in a while). Other then some historical innacuracies of the gunfight, the movie in itself is very good! (I'm not a western genre fan, either!) (Sorry for my horrible misspellings, but I'm too lazy to deal with ClarisWorks or consult my Franklin speller...)

    A colorful and action packed western

    A good film based around the legendary Gunfight at the O.K.Corral. The cast is truly superb, especially the supporting players. Sam Elliot is forceful and upright as Virgil Earp, Powers Boothe is wickly funny ''Curly Bill'' Brocious, Michael Biehn is a portrait of pure evil as Johnny Ringo and Stephen Lang as the loud mouth and cowardly ''Ike'' Clanton. The tour de-force performance must go to Val Kilmer as ''Doc'' Holliday. Kilmer gives his best screen performance to date. Whenever Kilmers ''Doc'' Holliday is on screen the film suddenly ignites. Kilmer is funny and dangerous scene after scene. His confrontation in the bar with Biehn's Ringo is a classic. Micheal Rooker, a great actor, as Sherman McMasters deserved more screen time. Rooker like the other supporting cast members is an underrated talent. Joanna Pacula gives a sexy portrayl as ''Big-Nose'' Kate. She could have used more screen time. Kurt Russell is good as the determined Wyatt Earp. Dana Delaney, as Russell's love interest, is also good. But her screen time is short. What a waste. Bill Paxton is also wasted as Morgan Earp. The direction and action are top-notch, topped of with a great musical score. Could have used a longer running length.

    FINALLY a SUPERB DVD of this fantastic movie!

    I picked up a copy early, and I must say it's INCREDIBLE! It puts the earlier DVD release of this movie to shame. The picture is superb, the DTS sound is amazing, and the extras (and Director's Cut) make this one of the finest DVDs out there. HIGHLY recommended!!

    Brilliant!

    This film ahs got to be one of the best films I have ever seen. I have always been interested in what happened in Tombstone, and this film gives you all the information you could possibly need. Tremendous acting from the likes of Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell makes the film what it is. Although it is relatively modern, the western shows many similarities to what actually happened at Tombstone and features such as Boothill Graveyard can be seen in the film. After visiting Tombstone in Arizona, I thought I would never be able to come close to the experience again. I was wrong. This film has it all -and more!

    RUSSLE is riveting as earp . and KILMER is dynamite as doc holliday . RUSSLE plays as the most famous lawman to stride in the wild west and KILMER as his deadly best friend doc holliday who adds power to this hard hitting western. tombstone is a thrilling journey of romance,adventure and desperate heroic action.

    Even better than Young Guns

    In the last 15 years, there haven't been many westerns made, especially those with such a great cast. Young Guns was great, Unforgiven was good, but hands down, the best western in the last 15 years is Tombstone. The action moves fast enough so you're not bored, but they develop the characters enough so you care. This is possibly Val Kilmer's best overall performace as he steals the show as Doc Holiday.
