One interesting thing about the story is that it appears that the writers really did include a lot of research and attempted to create a lot of accurate details in the characters and in the story.

The 'right hand' men are the reason we all keep going back to Tombstone.

May 10, 2012
Too many characters and not enough time in which to deal with them, and action that seems so rushed to get to the end that important scenes are left out.

A lot of care and attention were obviously devoted to selecting locations, designing sets, and grooming handlebar mustaches. Much less attention went to making one believe that any of the events took place circa 1879.

A spectacular and well acted bit of Western cinema and sadly one in an endangered genre species...

Sports pretty much everything one would want in a Western, and though it's not always eminently artful, it is rarely anything less than entertaining. [Blu-ray]

One of the finest Westerns to come along since the genre decided largely to pack up and ride into the sunset several decades ago.
May 13, 2010
It has an energetic flow, and a genuinely rugged, exciting feel, unlike many of the more bloated, picturesque examples of the Western genre.
May 10, 2010
It takes a lot more than the passage of time to value Tombstone. Naps, earplugs, and possibly tremendous amounts of alcohol also assist in the proper digestion of the feature.

Doesn't really cut it in the Western genre.

December 4, 2008
A tough-talking but soft-hearted tale that is entertaining in a sprawling, old-fashioned manner.
November 4, 2007
Dated and flawed, but super cool for Val Kilmer's brilliant performance as Doc Holiday.
| Original Score: 4/5
May 13, 2007
It has problems - a LOT of problems - but as bubblegum westerns go, there's also a lot to like.
| Original Score: 3/5
August 18, 2006
I liked the film but I would've liked to have seen some of the first hour trimmed, and the romance taken out completely.

There's a misguided romantic subplot and the ending rather sprawls, but mostly this is rootin', tootin' entertainment.
September 21, 2004
Excellent western that's eminently rewatchable.
| Original Score: 4/5
August 30, 2004
It wants to be at once traditional and morally ambiguous. The two visions don't quite harmonize.
May 6, 2004
Kilmer is as legendary as the Doc he plays.
| Original Score: 4/5
September 20, 2003
May not be historically accurate, but offers a lot of punch for the buck. A tough, guilty-pleasure Western.
| Original Score: 3/5
August 8, 2002
Most of the movie is above-average, but Val Kilmer's performance is what makes it a must-see.
| Original Score: 4/5
