A great cast and good action and storyline.
A Fan
The cast is one of the finest of the mid-Eighties: Danny Glover, Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Kevin Costner, Jeff Goldblum, Linda Hunt, John Cleese, and Brian Dennehy.
Mike Murray
Silverado is one of the best western movies I seen in many years.

A return to the classic western of yesterday, "Silverado" recalls the sprawling efforts of Sergio Leone and the old spaghetti westerns while recycling many of the motifs of the best efforts from Howard Hawks, Anthony Mann and John Ford. It's a pity that Kasdan hasn't rethought the film and added in additional footage. Perhaps the version we saw in theaters was the definitive version but given the wealth of material I doubt it. "Silverado" is greater than the sum of its parts with a number of strong performances from Kevin Costner, Scott Glenn, Kevin Kline, Brian Dennehy and others. Kasdan manages to echo classic films in this sprawling but exciting western adventure.

Emmett (Scott Glenn) has just been released from prison and is on his way to Silverado to visit with his family when he's attacked by a group of outlaws. He's initially unclear as to why they chose him but it soon becomes apparent that they're hired guns sent by Ethan McKendrick (Ray Baker) to average the death of his father. Along the way Emmett must spring his kid brother Jake (Kevin Costner) from the jail of Turley for a killing that happened in self defense. Emmett has a guardian angel in the form of Mal (Danny Glover) a butcher who is headed to Silverado himself to help out his parents. Emmett also saves Paden (Kevin Kline) a man left to die in the desert by outlaws who ambushed him. When Emmett arrives in Silverado he finds things haven't changed; Ethan McKendrick is still trying to dominate the town by installing his own sheriff (Brian Dennehy) a former outlaw who rode at one time with Paden. He realizes that as long as he stays in Silverado he and his family's lives are in danger.

A beautiful and rich looking transfer highlights this first ever Superbit transfer of "Silverado".

Format: DVD
In the well-made documentary that accompanies this collectors edition DVD release, the Kasdan brothers admit to being fans of the classic western films. They have incorporated many techniques of that genre in this fine film. The super cast includes Kevin Kline, Scott Glen, Kevin Costner, and Danny Glover as the four leads with Brian Dennehy, John Cleese, Jeff Goldblum, and Linda Hunt in supporting roles.
The film starts with a light flavor as we are introduced to the various characters but takes on an increasingly dark character as it rushes toward the foreseeable conclusion. This movie is meant to be a sort of compendium of all that is good about westerns and in that regard it performs admirably.
The DVD video quality is good but grain is noticeable in some scenes. Sound quality is quite good and the film was nominated for awards in that category. The aforementioned documentary is well worth watching and includes deleted scenes as well as insight from the Kasdan brothers and the actors. I would have liked to see more extras but this rarely happens with films from this time period due to the extra cost that would be involved.
All in all, a very good film presented in an attractive package that will appeal to DVD collectors.

I'll tell you how much I like this movie. I bought the VHS and soundtrack no more than six weeks ago and upon discovering its DVD availability, I immediately hit "1-Click".
I can't think of another Western in the 15 years since this film was released that I enjoyed more, not even "Lonesome Dove", and that's saying a lot. I was praying that it would be released on DVD and it's nice to know my prayers were answered.
The cast is one of the finest of the mid-Eighties: Danny Glover, Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Kevin Costner, Jeff Goldblum, Linda Hunt, John Cleese, and Brian Dennehy. And these are just the principals.
Silverado is a sweeping Western demi-epic that takes some classic genre cliches and weaves them into a modern classic, emboldened by Bruce Boughton's masterful score. The master of this all is co-writer and director Lawrence Kasdan, who has given us some other gems like "Body Heat" and "The Big Chill".
This DVD release is great news and the only thing that could make me happier is to find that additional scenes featuring Rosanna Arquette, deleted from the theatrical release, appear somewhere on the DVD.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
When Ernest Lehman and Alfred Hitchcock got stuck on the script for "The Wreck of the Mary Deare", Lehman said he really wanted to make "the Hitchcock film to end all Hitchcock films". The result was "North by Northwest". One might say "Silverado" is Lawrence Kasdan's attempt at "the Western to end all Westerns". Virtually every Western-movie cliché is -- uh -- trotted out for our inspection and amusement.

During the first hour or so, before the story starts getting really black, Kasdan has fun with these clichés. It works, because "Silverado" is an homage to classic Westerns, not a send-up. There's also some subtle borrowing. When Emmett leaves the cabin at the beginning, one can't help but think "John Ford". And Emmett's hobby seems to be whittling flutes (rather than napkin rings). (There are doubtless others I've missed.)

The casting is just about perfect. Even the normally torpid Kevin Costner delivers an amusing performance as Emmett's younger, goofy brother. Kasdan's leisurely directorial pace not only makes the action sequences more exciting, but also allows the actors to //act//, to do the "little things" that aren't in the script, but help us better understand the characters.

The image quality is excellent. I've seen "Silverado" several times, but the cinematography never impressed me so much. This is a film you //have// to see in high definition.

Kasdan says "Silverado" is a "family" film, but it has an apt PG-13 rating. There's little blood, but some vicious brutality.

I purchased my region-free Blu-ray from a British dealer. At the time I ordered (a little over a week ago -- it arrived muy pronto), their price was less than half their current price. (In the 45 minutes it took to write, edit, and post this review, several stores carrying this disk came and went, and the prices were all over the place.) A word to the wise...
