Note :The opening scene is not a disc error .It was intentionally shot and presented in this format and aspect ratio as this was the directors vision for his film.
A sizzling, star-studded cast brings to life the legendary battle to deliver justice to TOMBSTONE! Kurt Russell (MIRACLE, VANILLA SKY) turns in a gripping performance as U.S. Marshall Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer (THE MISSING, BATMAN FOREVER) ignites the screen as the outrageous Doc Holliday. Together, they team up to bring law to the lawless in a notorious showdown with the ruthless outlaws at the O.K. Corral! The all-star ensemble also includes Sam Elliott, Bill Paxton, Dana Delany, Jason Priestley, Michael Biehn, and long-time Hollywood favorite Charlton Heston. Get ready for an explosive, action-packed adventure the Wild West would never forget!
This Western has become a modest cult favorite since its release in 1993, when the film was met with mixed reviews but the performances of Kurt Russell (as Wyatt Earp) and especially Val Kilmer, for his memorably eccentric performance as the dying gunslinger Doc Holliday, garnered high praise. The movie opens with Wyatt Earp trying to put his violent past behind him, living happily in Tombstone with his brothers and the woman (Dana Delany) who puts his soul at ease. But a murderous gang called the Cowboys has burst on the scene, and Earp can't keep his gun belt off any longer. The plot sounds routine, and in many ways it is, but Western buffs won't mind a bit thanks to a fine cast and some well-handled action on the part of Rambo director George P. Cosmatos, who has yet to make a better film than this. --Jeff Shannon

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.
