4.0 out of 5 stars Great Entertainment April 3, 2000
Format:DVD
I am not Sharon Stone's biggest fan and I did not expect to like this movie when I saw it, but now I find myself watching it every time it is on tv. Gene Hackman is great as the sadistic John Herod, he is even meaner than in Unforgiven. Russell Crowe gives a good performance as Cort, and Crowe is finally getting the attention that he deserves as a serious actor. Sharon Stone's role does not demand all that much of her and she does what is expected of her. Leonardo DiCaprio exudes the appropriate amount of cockiness as the young upstart gunslinger. There are some good minor roles in the film, including Lance Henriksen as Ace and Keith David as Cantrell, the man secretly hired by the oppressed townfolk to take out Herod. The most dramatic moment in the film comes when he faces Herod and the townspeople bend their heads in prayer for salvation only to be disappointed as Cantrell comes to a brutal end. Some of the other reviewers found the camera angles annoying and certain scenes unrealistic. Well, this movie doesn't strive for realism. It is part send off of spaghetti westerns and part live action adult cartoon. If you see the movie in this spirit, you cannot help but like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Western as Modern Myth February 6, 2002
Format:DVD
The Quick and the Dead has long been derided as a Sharon Stone star vehicle that flopped. However, there is much more to this film than meets the eye. Featuring an ensemble cast that includes, Stone, Gene Hackman, Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Sinise, Keith David, and Lance Henricksen, this film is a refreshing change from past takes on the western.
Stone plays a quiet and beautiful gunslinger, come out of the dusty plains to the town of Redemption, seeking revenge for the murder of her sheriff father years ago by the town dictator John Herrod, a dark and malevolent old gunfighter intent on maintaining his stranglehold on the frightened populace by staging a quick draw contest, the better to publically eliminate any opposition to his rule, and to squash any hope of salvation. Drawn into this dark contest are Herrod's former partner turned preacher Cort, a man whose tortured soul still seeks it's own salvation, and who Herrod seeks to pull back to Hell. Herrord's son, The Kid, enrolls in the contest as a way to seek fame and glory, and to prove himself to a aloof and uncaring father. Thrown into the mix are a number of colorful characters come to town to seek their own fortunes and the fireworks ensue. There is strong symbolism throughout this film, shades of death and rebirth, powerful archetypal figures in the charaters of Herrod, the powerful demonic ruler of the underworld, and Cort, the misguided but eventual redeemer and saviour.
This film boasts a strong and talented cast that give some wonderfully enjoyable performances. Sam Raimi does an incredible job once again of producing a stylishly directed tale of loss, redemtion, salvation, and revenge in this telling of the western as mdoern myth.

Format:Blu-ray
In 1995, then-blossoming director Sam Raimi (who went on to direct the "Spider-Man" and "The Evil Dead" films) and writer Simon Moore ("Traffic") worked on their first Western. Joined by composer Alan Silvestri ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra", "Beowulf", "Night at the Museum" and "The Mummy" films) and cinematographer Dante Spinotti ("X-Men: The Last Stand", "The Family Man" and "Red Dragon"), the crew set out to create a unique western that has never been done before.

"The Quick and the Dead" featured an all-star cast which included the sexy Sharon Stone ("Basic Instinct", "Sliver", "Bobby" and "Catwoman"), the legendary actor Gene Hackman ("Unforgiven", "Crimson Tide", "The Replacements", "Heist", "Behind Enemy Lines" and "Runaway Jury") and two actors that would become popular a few years after the release of this film, Russel Crowe ("Gladiator", "A Beautiful Mind", "Cinderella Man", "American Gangster") and Leonardo DiCaprio ("Titanic", "The Departed", "Bood Diamond", "Gangs of New York").

VIDEO & AUDIO:

"The Quick and the Dead" receives its first HD release on Blu-ray. Featured in 1080p High Definition (1:85:1), the film for the most part captures that Western feel and at times, the picture quality showcases the grit of the West. From Sharon Stone's blue eyes to gold in the the teeth of some of the people in the town, there are times that the picture quality looks very good especially since this is a 15-year-old film.

But there are times when the picture quality just looks bad. In one scene during a discussion between Ellen and Cort and when it focuses on her, the film looks as if the the low light added so much noise around the film. Fortunately, this segment is short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Video and Audio Quality. Great Movie. May 2, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you are going to review a Blu-Ray movie, please describe the audio/video quality.

I really like this movie, and am entertained every time I watch it. This is the first time I have seen it on Blu-Ray.

At first I was disappointed, because the first scenes had grain, and I thought "here's another Blu-Ray movie with bad video quality". But then it got better - a lot better. Most of the movie had excellent video quality, with great detail. But, there were a couple of scenes that had grain. I don't know if it was a different camera, or what. But 99% of the movie was grain free and excellent.

The Dolby 5.1 TrueHD audio was also great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, loads of action.
Next to Tombstone and Silverado this is perhaps one of my all time favorite Westerns in the last 20 years. Action, story, and plenty of Hollywood stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stone and Hackman work well together.
This is perhaps Sharon Stone's best performance, and I love to hate Gene Hackman! It's a fun story, but with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.

I'm no movie snob. I watch movies not for a message but entertainment. Thus, this movie delivers in that category. Even better, Hackman's character takes it in the shorts. Read more
