George P. Cosmatos presents the Director's Cut of his incredibly popular TOMBSTONE, the action-packed, star-studded western that brings the legendary feud between the Earps and the Clantons to life. Former U.S. Marshall Wyatt Earp's (Kurt Russell) plan for peace, quiet, and prosperity misfires when he, his brothers, and the outrageous rogue Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) encounter that ruthless band of outlaws, the Clantons. Gripping performances and explosive action fill the screen in this legendary western about Tombstone and the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

What makes this film superior to other westerns is the depth of the story and the realistic performances of the cast: Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Michael Biehn, Sam Elliott, Billy Bob Thornton, Bill Paxton, Billy Zane, even Charlton Heston. Even supporting roles whether major or minor are carefully crafted and played to perfection. While not necessarily intentional, this movie has fun pieces for everyone: western action, romance, lust, comedy, 1 liners, friendship, regret, self-discovery, addiction, and family. Also, the director seems to have paid close attention or done heave research on period accuracy in costume, language, and props. From what I can tell, it all holds accurate. Particularly, the firearms and scripting used throughout the film.
I've read some critics who say this wasn't historically accurate enough for them, preferring Kevin Costner's 'Earp.' I've seen both and I'll take Tombstone every day of the week and twice on Sunday. It just has it all: great cast, soundtrack, story, direction, and it doesn't ever bore. It's just an all around great movie western.
I can't count how many times I've seen it, but it will be watched again, I promise. It never gets old. A classic.
Despite having been made in 1993, in many ways, this hearkens back to the golden age of the Western (albeit with more blood). The cast, led by Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer, is uniformly excellent, as is the script and the lavish production. The movie barely puts a foot wrong, taking plenty of time to tell the story but never outstaying its welcome. When the dust settles and the credits roll, Tombstone is a satisfying ride that looks great on Blu-Ray (yes, there’s some film grain, but remember this was shot 25 years ago). It’s available for a great price, less than $10 at the time of writing, and it’s worth every cent. Tombstone belongs on the shelf of every fan of the western.
