Product Description

Western starring Kevin Kline and Danny Glover. In the 1880s, various pioneers try to establish a future in the American West as four strangers shoot it out in the crooked town of Silverado.

From Amazon.co.uk

Director Lawrence Kasdan (The Big Chill) clearly set out to make an old-fashioned Western, but he couldn't help bringing a hip, self-conscious attitude to the proceedings. Silverado thus finds its own funky tone--sometimes rousing, sometimes winking. Four cowpokes converge on a little Western burg called Silverado; they're played by Kevin Kline (a distinctly modern kind of Western hero), Scott Glenn, Danny Glover, and the rowdy young Kevin Costner. Kasdan peppers the somewhat generic action with smart dialogue and a parade of quirky supporting players, including John Cleese as a sheriff who seems to have stepped straight from a Monty Python sketch into an Old West saloon. Bruce Broughton supplies the music, a real throwback to the glory days of thundering Western themes. One thing's for sure: Silverado's a lot more fun than the later Kasdan-Costner Western, Wyatt Earp. --Robert Horton

Don't be turned off by the soft visuals in the opening credits. Once they've rolled through, the picture quality really excels and the New Mexico settings really shine in this classic modern western. Definitely worth the upgrade to blu ray with some scenes offering real dimensionality. Rousing score (Dolby True HD audio) by Bruce Broughton though not much LFE, provides great energy and a real sense of excitement.

Silverado is a very good western which bucks the trend of the late 1970s and the 1980s and goes back to the basics of what made Westerns popular in the first place. It is action-packed with an interesting, if not entirely original storyline, but it is great fun even if almost every western cliche and stereotype you can think of is included. The cast are great, especially Kevin Kline as a surprising and actually very believable Western hero, and make this film a pleasure to watch. If you are looking for deep and meaningful or a film with a political angle then this is not for you, but if you want a movie that captures the essence of why people fell in love with westerns in the first place then this is just such a film. All in all very good.

This is a fabulous movie on Blu-Ray. I live in the US and bought at amazon UK beecause it was priced much lower. AQ and PQ are the best this has ever been!

Can't say for sure as I've only watched it five times so far but its up there as one of the best rootin' shootin' cowboy films of all times and sadly, a well kept secret.
All the action you could want. Great stars, good acting and beautifully shot.
The quality of picture and sound is all you would expect of a bluray disc.
I just love it and can't recommend it more highly.

Format: DVD
I like this movie a lot, but I find myself fast-forwarding through parts of it. I like the story and the look of the film. I like westerns and I like the way this movie brings back so many themes and yet keeps them fresh. I sure like the actors. Kevin Kline is one of the most likable and accomplished actors around. Scott Glenn, in my view, is one of the most underrated of actors, and one who for whatever reason never was able to break through into major stardom. Linda Hunt brings so much humanity to the movie, and Brian Dennehy brings so much sly, ruthless aggression. I sure liked those long dustbusters he wore. And Kasdan keeps the action going; there are shootouts at regular intervals, as well as bar fights, ambushes, and high-spirited showdowns. Kevin Costner does a great job as Glenn's younger brother, fast with his pistols and always ready for a good time.

But the movie has so many subplots and side stories for every character except, I think, the kid brother. There's Kline's relationship with Dennehy to think about, then Kline's relationship with Hunt. There's Glenn and his other, homesteading brother and family. There's Glover with his father and then Glover with his sister. Then there's Goldblum with Glover's sister. For me, there are just too many stories. I appreciate that Kasdan wanted to talk about racism in the early west. Except as a vehicle for that subject, I can't see that Glover, his father or his sister bring anything else to the main story line. Perhaps that's enough of a reason. Goldblum seems to me to be an extraneous character, especially without any real need for Glover's sister. And what was John Cleese doing? He's such a recognizable personality that he sort of imbalances the scenes when he appears.

This is an excellent western with the most impressive cast I have seen to date in a movie. It even has John Cleese as a sheriff! Running over 2 hours there are plots within plots, well intertwined with lots of sublots for almost everyone starring. It is a very ambitious movie, at times almost slipping out of the directors grasp, but manages to save itself, with humourous little details.

Highly recommended, if nothing else for seeing a very young Kevin Kostner playing quite an atypical role.

Remains one of my all-time favourite Westerns, a genre of which I'm not overly fond (Spaghetti Westerns, The Alamo - original version, the odd John Wayne classic and Young Guns being about it).
A plethora of stars wade through, shooting, dying and loving whilst John Cleese's character decides discretion is the way to go! A young Kevin Costner revels in being a whipfast gunslinger who doubts not his abilities or charm. Scott Glenn, Kevin Kline and a grizzled Danny Glover complete the 'white hats' whilst Brian Dennehy and a suitably slimy Jeff Goldblum lead the 'black hats' for Ethan McKendrick, played by Ray Baker, a rich and unscrupulous rancher.
A great cast, great directing and a great storyline have lead to a great film. One that has survived the passage of time intact.

All the western cliches rolled into one rollicking shoot-em-up, all action movie. Great scenery, Great music, wonderful horsemanship. Plenty of action, thrills and spills. In the blu-ray version the picture resolution and sound quality were superb. Great entertainment!
