I don’t know why I’m writing this, everybody should already know this is a fantastic movie…what? There are people that haven’t seen this? You’re kidding…my God, those poor bastards.
Ok, for the six people in the universe that haven’t seen this movie, allow me to give a brief summary. Tombstone is the story of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp (Russell) and his brothers (Elliott and Paxton), who have moved out west to Arizona in order to make their fortune.
The Earps’ reputation precedes them, especially Wyatt who made a name for himself in Dodge City. While in Tombstone, they bump into Wyatt’s old friend Doc Holliday (Kilmer), a card playing gunslinger and lunger (meaning he had tuberculosis).
Also stationed in Tombstone is a gang of ruthless outlaws known as The Cowboys. The Cowboys basically run the region, and law is only for show. As you could probably guess, the Earps run across The Cowboys and that’s a key part of our movie.
Ok, I think that’s enough. Now if you’re one of the aforementioned six people that haven’t yet seen this movie, get your ass off the Internet and go buy it. Don’t rent it, BUY IT!!! This is an excellent movie, one of the best Western films of all time.
Tombstone gets a five out of five: EXCELLENT.
