Total Times Watched – Maybe 3?
A loosely based historical Western? Count me in! To be fair, I had seen this movie a couple times and after the letdown of Hang ‘Em High, I needed a movie I could count on. Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell are so damn good in this movie. Kurt Russell just oozes “Western” – it’s probably the best type of role for him. He’s actually good at pretty much everything, though. This movie follows Wyatt Earp and recounts the story of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. It’s a bit hokey in parts and the pacing is not great throughout, but when it hits, it hits.
This is a good Western revival movie. It has some of the cheesiness of old Westerns, but more of a modern sensibility to it. It’s not great, but it’s solid.
