A cult favorite since its modestly successful release in 1993, Tombstone is a highly entertaining western about the legendary battle to deliver justice to a small Arizona town. Kurt Russell turns in a gripping performance as U.S. Marshall Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer goes for broke with a memorably eccentric performance as the dying gunslinger Doc Holliday. Things begin with Earp trying to put his violent past behind him, living happily in Tombstone, AZ with his brothers and the woman (Dana Delany) who puts his soul at ease. But a murderous gang called the Cowboys has burst onto the scene to terrorize the town, and Earp realizes he can’t keep his gun belt off any longer, as the action irrevocably hurtles toward the infamous shootout at the OK Corral. Featuring an incredible, all-star supporting cast of tough guys including Sam Elliott, Bill Paxton, Michael Rooker, Powers Boothe and Charlton Heston, and sporting lush cinematography and a stirring music score, Tombstone is an explosive, slam-bang western that recalls the classics of the genre’s golden age and simultaneously offers a revisionist commentary from a modern perspective. (Dir. by George P. Cosmatos, 1993, USA, 130 mins., Rated R)
