Tombstone ★★★★½

Aside from Kurt Russell’s gritty one-liners and Val Kilmer’s scene-stealing performance as the sickly, alcoholic Doc Holliday, there are far too many characters that come and go within this over-crowded and underdeveloped western. In terms of approach it’s something you rarely see nowadays; Tombstone is as much a modern day actioner as it is a throwback to the golden age epics. It’s flawed, but thankfully brimming with entertaining set pieces to insure an enjoyable experience, the lingering issue is that it’s hard to see anyone but western fans truly enjoying it.

(p.s. I am a massive western fan)
