Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 03/01/1994
"...TOMBSTONE is replete with traditional Western pleasures: lusciously photographed sunsets, rugged landscapes, consistently witty dialogue...and a gallery of finely-realised heroes and villains..."
New York Times - 12/24/1993
"...Russell's clear, steady portrayal of Wyatt Earp gives the film a core of emotional integrity..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/18/1994
"...The leanest, meanest Earp movie yet....Sprawling, chaotic [climax]..."
A.V. Club - 05/12/2010
"As a fey, tubercular Doc Holliday, Val Kilmer is especially impressive, giving a just-shy-of-over-the-top performance that might have prompted Johnny Depp to take notes."
Premiere - 04/27/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A rousing western in the spirit of THE WILD BUNCH....Kilmer gives a career performance as Holliday..."

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Tombstone Vista Series
George P. Cosmatos presents the Director's Cut of his incredibly popular TOMBSTONE, the action-packed, star-studded western that brings the legendary feud between the Earps and the Clantons to life. Former U.S. Marshall Wyatt Earp's (Kurt Russell) plan for peace, quiet, and prosperity misfires when he, his brothers, and the outrageous rogue Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) encounter that ruthless band of outlaws, the Clantons. Gripping performances and explosive action fill the screen in this legendary western about Tombstone and the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

Production Notes:

  • "Tombstone" was written by "Glory" screenwriter Kevin Jarre, who was originally slated to direct. George Pan Cosmatos ("Rambo: First Blood, Part II") replaced him.
  • Kevin Costner was still working on his version of the Wyatt Earp story for Warner Bros. (directed by Lawrence Kasdan) when "Tombstone" was released December 25, 1993.
  • Jarre told reporters that Costner's film was initially slated to "crush my picture." Jarre was afraid his picture wouldn't get made but a William Morris agent got Russell to star in the film (even if Russell was a client of the Creative Artists Agency); after that, the rest of the cast quckly fell into place.
  • Budget estimate $25 million.
  • Filmed in location in Tucson, Arizona, in Technicolor and Panavision.
  • Rated MPAA R, running time 127 minutes.
  • Rated BBFC 15 by the British Board of Film Classification.
