Proof that westerns can be fun, Tombstone delivers an action-adventure popcorn movie that doesn't have to be campy and one-dimensional to be enjoyable. Here, Wyatt Earp biography is told like a fable. Sure, the facts are often recalculated in this film. But this is not looking to give a straight-on accurate view of Wyatt Earp's life. This is trying to take a man's life as a basis and then add to it to make a cinematic joyride. As opposed to the overlong and plodding "Wyatt Earp," this film decides to have a good time with the story and not get too bogged down in the misery. Kurt Russell is powerful as awful, and no man can deny that Val Kilmer, in his finest performance to date, was fully due for an Oscar nomination, if not an Oscar win. And Michael Biehn also gives a first rate performance as the sadistic Johnny Ringo. This is a thrill ride for anyone who loves westerns, or a good film to try to get others to start watching westerns.
Clantons vs Earps
The Best movie about the O.K. Corral ever made!
Kurt Russell's portray'al of Wyatt Earp is wonderful but Val Kilmer steals the show with his portray'al of Doc Holiday.

Excellent rendition of this old west classic of the events leading up to this fateful 3:00PM meeting on
Wednesday, October 26, 1881. The principle parties were the Earp brothers, Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan, with Wyatt's long time friend Doc Holliday. Their opponents were the Clantons and the McLaurys, local highwaymen and known rustlers. They were associated with a gang of outlaws loosely known as the Cowboys. They all but controlled practically all crime in and around Tombstone with the help and protection of a corrupt county sheriff named John Behan. In late 1879, the Earp brothers moved to Tombstone with the idea of opening a business to make a lot of money. Ideas included a saloon, gambling house, silver mine, rooming house, whorehouse, or stage line. Having achieved fame as a lawman, Wyatt was immediately offered the job as deputy sheriff, but emphatically refused it. Eventually, through constant contact with people like Curly Bill Brocius, Johnny Ringo, Ike and Billy Clanton, and as many as forty other members of the Cowboys, along with Wyatt's former noteriety as the man who had successfully "cleaned up" Dodge City, Kansas, pushed both sides close to a violent confrontation several times. Following the murder of Town Marshall Fred White in October, 1880, Wyatt intervened and arrested Curly Bill Brocius for his murder. Since nobody would come forward as actually witnessing the murder, Brocius was acquitted. As crime spiraled out of control, Virgil and Morgan became co-sheriffs of Tombstone. At this time, there were fifteen gambling houses and about 110 saloons in Tombstone. Backing his brothers, Wyatt also reluctantly put on a badge. Sensing that there was no other way to curtail the violence, a complete ban on the carrying of all handguns within the city limits was initiated. This slowed the violence greatly, but also prompted clashes with several of the Cowboys. After repeated violations of the gun ban and constant threats to the lives of the Earps, the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral resulted. Both Morgan and Virgil Earp, and Doc Holliday were wounded in the battle. Tom and Frank McLaury, and Billy Clanton were killed. John Behan, County Sheriff, arrested the Earps and Holliday and charged them with murder. After a thirty day trial they were acquitted. The violence continued, and on Dec. 28,1881, Virgil Earp was wounded from ambush, and lost the use of his left arm. Morgan Earp was also killed from ambush on March 18, 1882. Frank Stilwell, Johnny Behan's deputy, was seen fleeing the area. He was found dead three days later. Shortly afterwards, Wyatt Earp began his famous "Revenge Ride" to rid the Territory of outlaws. This was a most enjoyable movie, and perhaps the best cowboy movie in quite some time. Actors Kurt Russell, as Wyatt Earp, and Val Kilmer, as Doc Holliday were both very good. I especially enjoyed Kilmer's acting. I have never liked his style, but he did a great job in this part. The side story of the private lives of the Earps and their family lives was also included in this story. Wyatt's commonlaw wife, Matty Blalock, became addicted to opium in Laudnum. Her addiction drove him away and he fell in love and married a woman named Josephine who remained his wife until his death in 1929.
This is an awesome set to have for this great movie. Besides having the extra scenes included in this dvd, the bonus items are wonderful. Set includes a hard copy of a map of the then Tombstone plus two discs. Especially interesting and entertaining is the segment on the members of the crew discussing the movie, their characters and particular scenes. It appears they were interviewed during the filming so they all are dressed in character when discussing their parts. There is also the movie shown with the director discussing the movie as it unfolds. I didn't watch all of that but only because I had watched the movie, looked at many of the bonus features and I just got tired. It's a lot to take in all at one time. I spent the extra $$ to get this set and it is well worth the price. If you love the movie, you will enjoy all the extras that are included in this set. If you are reading this and have never seen this movie, then you are in for a real treat. The cast of actors are some of the best! You'll never think of Doc Holliday or Wyatt Earp without picturing them as portrayed by Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell. This movie not only tells the story but you will get the feel of who these men were, how they felt-the good sides and the bad sides. It's not just a bad guys vs good guys movie. These were real people and the movie delves into their personalities like no other western about these individuals has ever done before. There is humor, tragedy, history and more. Enjoy!!
I think the best work of this movie was Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday. The one liners that he has are just awesome. Every time I see this movie I can not get over how well Val Kilmer did. This is by far my favorite role.
Kurt Russell plays the legendary Wyatt Earp come to Tombstone.
The shoot out at the OK corral is an awesome scene.
We hear about the wild and rough place that Tombstone, AZ was in the wild west. This movie definitely brings many of those tales to life.
