Tombstone

Tombstone ★★★★★

I really like this film. I have no complaints and I can watch this film and it holds my interest everytime. It has it flaws but I can't give it anything less than 5 stars. Kurt Russell is an amazing Wyatt Earp and just has a fantastic mustache. So many great mustaches in this film actually. Tons of big names in this film. Lots of story and action.
Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday is one of the best and most iconic performances in film. Just amazing. Lots of quotable lines in this film, an many memorable moments. I must say Wyatt freaking out and yelling in the rain was a bit much.

The third act is almost all a montage which is odd but it's still fun. A bit of the history is changed for the film as well. A bunch of really good old fashioned shoot outs if you like that. Overall I may have set the bar very high with a score it may not completely deserve, but it's one of my favorite films. This is also one of the more faithful adaptations of the historical events involving Wyatt Earp. That scene where he screams no and walks out and shoots Curly Bill by all accounts that's how it actually happened.
