Excerpt: I recommend purchasing the Vista Series 2-Disc DVD instead: http://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Tombstone-DVD/6141/ Note: As stated in the site's official Blu-ray review, and as other users have noted in their remarks, there are definitely problems with the video. Rampant crush, strange contrast and what appears to be some level of smoothing are noticeable throughout. Most annoying though, is just how erroneously dark the film appears here.
Summary: This is a movie I've enjoyed numerous times and will look forward to adding it to my BD Collection - it's truly deserving of Blu Ray treatment. The casts blends so well and it blows away the Westerns I viewed growing up. Historically they likely weren't so cool and attractive in reality but they do a job of matching what our minds may have perceived who these folks were in the Wild West. There's a little bit of everything in this film.
Excerpt: Hollywood once again retells the story of the legendary lawman, this time in the guise of Kurt Russell. Add Val Kilmer, Sam Neill, and Bill Paxton into the mix and what you get doesn't exactly scream "A list" but what you do have is an ensemble cast that gels particularly well; this is one of those films that manages to be more than the sum of its parts.
Summary: Although not a historically accurate or particularly serious portrayal of the Wyatt Earp tale, Tombstone is one of the more fun Westerns. With some great lines, some funny moments, and some exciting shootout action scenes, it doesn't cease to entertain.
Summary: A lot of people like this western, but for me it was simply adequate. It moved a bit slow for my personal tastes and while the story and casting were good, it also didn't knock me out. Fans of westerns will get the most out of this - but for me, just didn't click.
Summary: This film has everything that someone could hope for in a great film. Kurt Russell’s performance as Wyatt Earp is brilliant and is only complimented by Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday and Sam Elliot's Virgil Earp. Powers Boothe delivers an also equally great performance as Curly Bill Brocius opposite Kurt Russell. The story is well written there is plenty of action to go along with it.
