From Back Cover:
"One of the 5 greatest Westerns ever made."
-True West Magazine
"Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer are terrific."
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 Cowboys. Gripping performances and explosive action fill the screen in this legendary western about Tombstone and the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.
I'm not normally a fan of Westerns, and I am definitely not a fan of Val Kilmer, but this movie is one of the best of its genre. Kurt Russell and - especially - Val Kilmer are perfect in their respective roles as Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
Rated R (MPAA)
