Tombstone Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: 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™ 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™ High Definition.

Review: Tombstone is hands-down one of the best westerns out there.  The cast of Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer and Sam Elliot knock the competition to the ground.   I can remember the first time I saw Kilmer's performance as Doc Holiday, thats when I decided he was more than a comedic actor (Real Genius), but he actually had some dramatic acting chops and a great range.

To clarify, this is the standard edition release, not the director's cut, as was released a few years back.   Tombstone is without a doubt the best dramatic recont of the showdown at the O.K. Corral.  This film is full of top-shelf actors and dynamic performances.

This new blu-ray release is rather outstanding.  It doesn't include the grain and soft edges that I figured it would, being a film from 1993.  Touchstone did a nice job of transfering it to high-definition.   We definately recommend this one.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
