Kurt Russell (MIRACLE, DEATH PROOF) and Val Kilmer (DEJA VU, THE MISSING) will blow you away in this explosive, action-packed adventure! And now, the legendary battle for justice in TOMBSTONE hits home on Blu-ray(TM) for the first time ever. Russell is U.S. Marshal Wyatt Earp; Kilmer is the outrageous Doc Holliday. Together, they team up to lay down the law in a notorious showdown with ruthless outlaws at the O.K. Corral. With an all-star cast that also includes Sam Elliott, Bill Paxton, Dana Delany, Jason Priestley, Michael Biehn and Hollywood icon Charlton Heston, this Wild West epic will transport you back in time and land you smack dab in the center of the crossfire. So strap on your six shooters as you experience the remarkable picture and theater-quality sound of TOMBSTONE in Blu-ray(TM) High Definition.
This Western has become a modest cult favorite since its release in 1993, when the film was met with mixed reviews but the performances of Kurt Russell (as Wyatt Earp) and especially Val Kilmer, for his memorably eccentric performance as the dying gunslinger Doc Holliday, garnered high praise. The movie opens with Wyatt Earp trying to put his violent past behind him, living happily in Tombstone with his brothers and the woman (Dana Delany) who puts his soul at ease. But a murderous gang called the Cowboys has burst on the scene, and Earp can't keep his gun belt off any longer. The plot sounds routine, and in many ways it is, but Western buffs won't mind a bit thanks to a fine cast and some well-handled action on the part of Rambo director George P. Cosmatos, who has yet to make a better film than this. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

My complaint is that this is the theatrical cut of the film and not the extended cut. While there's nothing too significant cut out, aside from the scene where Doc basically dumps Kate to go on the Earp Vendetta Ride there's one scene in particular that I wish they had left in; when McMasters responds to a parlay by the cowboys and Ringo asks him to re-join with them, when he refuses, Ike sticks a shotgun in McMaster's face and says "Just one question, how you gonna get back to them?" Then the film cuts to where McMasters has been dragged to death behind a horse. Without this scene I found McMaster's death very random as we saw him moments earlier at the Hooker ranch with Earp and the others, then all of a sudden he's dead, being dragged by a horse? Bwah?
Aside from that scene, and the previously mentioned "Doc dumping Kate" scene, I don't think there's anything else left out. So just know this when you buy this movie on blu-ray.
If you dont think the story of Wyatt Earp and the famous gunfight is controversial (or rather the telling of it) then you have not read through the reviews on Amazon for either film. Then go look up books on the subject and the furr flies. Now the controversy comes from there being two side to the story.
side 1. the most famous side has of couse Wyatt and his brothers as reluctant lawmen defending the town of Tombstone against a band of ruthless outlaws led by Ike Clanton and Curly Bill Brooches.
side 2. the side rarely taken by Hollywood (a surprise in this day of revisionist history) has Wyatt as a opportunistic criminal who wore a badge when it suited him, and hid behind it in order to dispatch his enemies. To this day the kin folk of the Clantons tell this version of the story...and believe it!!
When ever a book or movie on the subject is released the two factions (just like the two factions of Tombstone) start verbally swinging. Now I'm a sideone person,as are most folks I have met, more or less. So both of these films appealed greatly to me. Although they are distinctly different.
Tombstone is in many ways the classic western, bright(read Technicolor), loaded with plenty of humor, plenty of action, and several big name stars. But unlike westerns of yore it is bitingly violent at times, and violence lies just under the surface waiting to spring. Much like I imagine Tombstone was like in the 1880s.
This film was also the first to show drug use of the period, and to make homosexual references about a few of the characters.Read more ›

Whiskey, women, violence and drugs. Sounds like a party in the Bill Clinton WhitehousePublished 7 months ago by Leonard Tedds
A great recounting of Wyatt Earp and Kurt Russell's portrayal is quite different. Making Wyatt a raving maniac makes a lot of sense with all that happened in his life. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Kelly D. Bryson
