Tombstone

Kurt Russell is legendary lawman Wyatt Earp, joined by Sam Elliott and Bill Paxton as brothers Virgil and Morgan Earp, in this 1993 Western.

Known for his exceptional ability to take down outlaws, Wyatt prepares to settle down for a humble retirement in Tombstone, Arizona. Unfortunately, low-down rotten scoundrels disrupt those plans by terrorising the town. With the help of his brothers and notorious pal Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer), the weary gunfighter dons the badge one last time to deliver justice.

Tombstone is a tough-talking but soft-hearted tale that is entertaining in a sprawling, old-fashioned manner.

Tombstone remains a shamelessly entertaining movie, filled with lively turns from virtually every appropriate actor not working on the Costner version.
