Tombstone ★★½

Tombstone just didn't work for me. Everything about it felt too contrived, too desperately wannabe classic Hollywood Western. It felt as if the director threw a dozen of well-known actors and just about every old school Hollywood Western cliche together in a pan and forgot to add some spice.

The characters didn't grow on me. I couldn't really care about who died, the bandits were one-dimensional, I felt no thrill during the gunfights, and the sidetrack love story was awkward and superfluous, involving an uninteresting woman. And then there was the overly prominent orchestral score trying too hard to turn Tombstone into an epic classic.

When it comes to Westerns, I prefer a gritty, sweaty Sergio Leone flick, to be enjoyed with a large glass o' whiskey.
