TOMBSTONE (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Tombstone—much better than Wyatt Earp—has a stronger cast and tells the Tombstone story better. Kurt Russell is one of the best Wyatt Earp as is Val Kilmer for Doc Holiday. Sam Elliott and Bill Paxton add the right amount of spice to make a terrific and believable movie. Watch for Charlton Heston in the movie and Billy Bob Thornton. The movie has grit, gets to the point. Listen for Robert Mitchem’s narration at the end of the film.
