An enjoyable western, apparently based on true events. The story is, possibly for that reason, not very complex. Wyatt Earp and his brothers Virgil and Morgan come to a town called Tombstone with their wives, to settle down and relax. But they soon find out that the town is being terrorised by a bunch of cowboys. Since nobody seems to dare to stand up against them, the brothers do.

Lots of familiar faces, even though in some cases it took me a while to recognise them. Val Kilmer steals the show as the witty and fearless Doc Holliday.
