Al's Top Rated Films: Westerns. Share this page:. Clear your history. The site's critical consensus describes it as "a stylish modern western with a solid story and a well-chosen ensemble cast".
The film was also called "One of the year's 10 best! People started telling me they really liked Val Kilmer's performance in Tombstone , and I heard this everywhere I went.
When you hear this once or twice, it's interesting, when you hear it a couple of dozen times, it's a trend. And when you read that Bill Clinton loved the performance, you figured you better catch up with the movie.
Ebert was later to refer to Tombstone in future reviews, comparing it favorably to Kevin Costner 's Wyatt Earp "It forced the comparison upon me.
In a mixed review, Chris Hicks writing in the Deseret News said, "aside from Russell and Val Kilmer's scene-stealing, sickly, alcoholic Doc Holliday, there are so many characters coming and going, with none of them receiving adequate screen time, that it becomes difficult to keep track of them all.
Overall, he felt, "Taken on its own terms, with some lowered expectations, Western fans will have fun.
James Berardinelli writing for ReelViews offered a mixed-to-negative review, recalling how he thought, "The first half of Tombstone isn't an example of great filmmaking, but it is engaging.
There's a sense of growing inevitability as events build to the shoot-out at the OK Corral. The melodramatic "serious" moments are kept to a minimum, and the various gunfights are choreographed with style and tension.
Then, at the one-hour ten-minute mark, the Clanton gang and the Earps square off. From there, things get progressively worse. Not only is the last hour anti-climactic, but it's dull.
Too many scenes feature lengthy segments of poorly-scripted dialogue, and, in some cases, character motivation becomes unclear.
The gunplay is more repetitious than exciting. The result—a cobbled-together morass of silly lines and shoot- outs—doesn't work well. Stephen Holden writing in The New York Times saw the film as being a "capacious Western with many modern touches, the Arizona boom town and site of the legendary O.
Corral has a seedy, vaudevillian grandeur that makes it a direct forerunner of Las Vegas. Its values are capitalist rather than renegade, which is okay if it's metaphoric rather than literal.
Worse, as much as these actors heroically struggle to focus the film, the director more successfully hacks it apart.
He observed the film as being a "three-hour rough cut that's been trimmed down to a slightly shorter rough cut" with "all that holds the film together is Kurt Russell's droll machismo.
He negatively acknowledged that there was "a misguided romantic subplot and the ending rather sprawls" but ultimately exclaimed the film was "'rootin', tootin' entertainment with lots of authentic facial hair.
Richard Harrington of The Washington Post highlighted the film's shortcomings by declaring, "too much of Tombstone rings hollow. In retrospect, not much happens and little that does seems warranted.
There are so many unrealized relationships you almost hope for redemption in a longer video version. This one is unsatisfying and unfulfilling. A paperback novel of the same name adapted from Kevin Jarre's screenplay, written by Giles Tippette and published by Berkley Publishers , was released on January 1, The book dramatizes the real-life events of the gunfight at the O.
Corral and Earp Vendetta Ride , as depicted in the film. It expands on Western genre ideas in Jarre's screenplay. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
