Val Kilmer's Greatest Performance
Now Tombstone is a film that I would call the last great western of its
genre so far. It has every sub plot you could want in you're average film
and especially in a western. They have a great cast on board also to
establish this gang of ragger muffins. Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp is just
as good as Costner and Lancaster were. Val Kilmer is probably the main
reason why every fan of it's genre talk about it so much as he is not just a
fine actor in this but you believe that Doc Holiday and him were somehow
related as he takes on the exact same sense of humour which I have read in
books and his likeness is there also from what I have seen in pictures.
Val Kilmer has been in a lot of films but only half of them were good and
this goes into one of his best along with Oliver Stone's The Doors and
Willow without doubt has to get a mention. There is a superb cast here
which makes up of Bill Paxton, Sam Elliot, Michael Biehn, Powers Boothe,
Stephen Lang, Billy Zane and of course Charlton Heston. I could go on for
even longer mentioning some of the great actors that star in this but the
sheer action of vengeance of it make it one of the best action westerns.
There are your two type of westerns like High Noon and The Searchers which
are very calm but intense films. Then you have The Wild Bunch and Tombstone
which are just blood thirsty with plenty of action to cater for all tastes
I am not to familiar with the director but he is surely missed as far as
making a western like this is concerned.

EDGE OF DARKNESS with Mel Gibson: deserves its “R” rating, it does have cuss words as indicated before. Yet, it does prove something in the end. Cover up no matter how high is just that, unless some one like a grieving father takes action. In the end, all those involved it the most murderous cover up are dead, and the evil stopped! What more do you want out of a movie. Mel Gibson sick and dying like his daughter, hangs on just long enough to end it all. How many more would have suffered if Mel Gibson had just quit. Too many Christian have just quit over the last 50 years, or we would not be hearing all those cuss words. Blame it on society but if your near 50, did you take a stand and get others to help and stop it. We let it happen. Sorry back to the movie, Gibson’s character had a loving relationship with his daughter since birth, as flash backs show, and even at her age in this movie, she loved and looked to her dad for help. He had nothing to lose, in this world, nor do we as Christians, so fighting for our children even losing all even our lives, as he did, is Moral—Do I need to remind you that our fight is against spiritual forces of evil—above and, here on earth, those forces direct people on this world to evil. I would do anything to save my daughter from this world or stop those who will murder and cover up again. The movie is great, if you have a child, especially a daughter, fathers, you know the love our Father give us, as earthly fathers, for our daughters. Like the movie PK soon to come out, you can always come home, a father's love for a daughter is special in “Edge of Darkness” or P. K. This movie shows that love—LOVE ? I think the BIBLE says LOVE is NEAR the top in importance. I loved the movie, the suspense, intrigue, so many involved, it took concentration to figure the plot out..

Star Wars: Episode II—Attack of the Clones Am rewatching 1-6 on this one. It is amazing how these films by Lucas portray a sweet childs slow movement toward evil and how the most "cruel & evil" people can slowly lead a young teen away from the caring and loving person they were. Then watching part 3 where he transformation is complete, not because of the young person, but because of the evil people who swayed him or her..
Absolutely one of the best westerns... nay films... ever produced!.
the best wyatt earp flick ever.
A DAM GOOD ONE!!!!!!!!!.
Tombstone is the best western. Wish they could somehow make a sequel, or show how Doc and Wyatt met. Something, just give us another outstanding cast and picture..
No joke one of the best films I've ever seen. Someone enjoyed it that much as I do?? Oh really guys you have to!.
No awards, just rewards to cinema patrons.
God bless George P Cosmatos. To anyone who is a fan of the old west
genre, holy smokes!! This little piece of western history hit with a
thunderous explosion. Tombstone, was in theaters around the time that
Eastwood's-- "Unforgiven" was just heading out. That (Clint's western
saga) won a lot of awards, but to my dismay, it seems as though ' they
' missed this one. To me this is what Oscars are made of .
Steely-performances that bring the viewer to a place of awe. Simple.
This film of the old west, that some will quibble about the fact that
they didn't go into further detail on the lives and events that were
part of each character here. Or that some of the facts were traded or
missed all together in Tombstone. The director had set this western up
and many others on their heels. Everybody mentions Val Kilmer in this
as the incomparable 'Doc' Holiday. No doubt that he was indeed just
But add to it the way that Russell and Elliot with Paxton were the
brothers that fell right into cinematic place. They were picture-
perfect in their places. Then you bring in Dana Delaney, who is made
for this part of the love opposite Wyatt, feisty, smart, educated and
beautiful. and Stephen Lang another 'Pro' in about anything he takes
on. I think he has multiple acting-personalities, his range is as broad
as lake Superior. From a confident Jewish Lawyer David Abrams in 'Crime
Story' (1986-88) to a quivering voice scumbag criminal outlaw in this,
he has all the talent and a few other actor's talents too! Along with
him, Michael Biehn, who was prime as Ringo, oh yeah! Charlton Heston as
' Henry Hooker' the solid standing rancher, who aides 'Doc' in a time
of trouble, to Powers Booth, as the smart-Aleck's, oddly likable but
equally slimy instigator 'Curly Bill' . The guy you love to hate. There
was many moments that were the blocks that built the story, the one in
particular that seemed strangely authentic, was when Wyatt and Virgil
(Russell and Elliot) walked with Allie and Mattie, from the train after
meeting up, and stopped at that storefront window and stood there, as
if posing for a portrait. Wyatt sort of directed them to take a moment
and take a picture of it to remember in their mind. That was a pause
for reality in this for me. This had both tragedy and hard fought
victory. The Arizona sky and scenery was dreamy in some sequences and
the camera crew and sound was top-notch. I still can't really say there
is another 'West' picture that stimulates my senses better than Wyatt
and the whole gang, with 'Doc' the wild huckleberry, at your
The crew that played together in this film, helped make it a smash
hit!! There are the other actors that took part as well, too many to
list with the 'word' limit on IMDb, but, it was so good, you could feel
it even after the movie was over! I highly and gladly recommend to
western lovers and action movie seekers.
Tombstone...Justice is coming.(*****).
