Synopsis

Epic biography about legendary cowboy Wyatt Earp. The film spans Earp's life, from his youth, when blood and gore made him deeply uncomfortable, to his role in the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, to his becoming a rigid, by-the-book sheriff. Also dramatized are Earp's relationships with his brothers and their wives, and with loyal friend Doc Holliday, who is dying of tuberculosis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Storytelling at its best 20 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I read recently that Kevin Costner doesn't like the usual (what he regards as short ) running time of movies. Since the ground breaking Dances With Wolves he has tended to extend running time enabling his movies to get to grips with a true narrative style, where he takes the audience deep into the world of the central character and allows us the privilege of "living the life" of the character along with them. This has the effect of giving the movie a more "natural" feel, allowing the audience to
identify with the character at quite a deeper level than is usual with movies of 90 minutes or so in length. This approach has worked particulary well with this movie, and (without spoiling the plot for new viewers), it is fair to say that because of life events Earp matured into both a complex and serious character.
One of the enduring qualities of this movie is that Costner doesn't play Earp as the consummate hero of the Wild West. He is a human being with all the failings and insecurities of those around him and is not portrayed as an unbeatable gunslinger. All credit to Costner, the director, the producers and everyone involved for taking this approach.
What does set Earp apart however, according to the narrative here, is his strength of character. The question we have to ask ast the end of the movie is was that strength of character ultimately beneficial or detrimental to Earp and the members of his family?
So all in all a thought provoking movie on one of the greatest legends of the Old West, and one that has prompted me to want to read further about the enigmatic Earp. A special mention must also go to Dennis Quaid for his excellent portrayal of Doc Holliday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark days in the West 21 Sep 2014
Format:HD DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this to see another side of Kevin Costner's work. He is a very beautiful man and plays the romantic hero very well, is athletic and, I understand, does most of his own stunts. However, this is not a happy film. The Earp family at this time seemed to wander from state to state in America, and mostly the weather was unkind and the local population even more so. It was often difficult to distinguish between the various men as they all wore a lot of heavy dark clothing and a lot of hair and face whiskers which hid their features. There was a lot of shooting, indeed the armourer must have been a busy man as the pistols particularly were kept in beautiful condition. The Foley department was very busy with exaggerated gun noises during editing. Yes, it tells a formidable story of much hatred, killing and destruction of the buffalo, buildings and people, and I hope it was an exaggeration as I would hate to think that real life had been so awful. So Kevin was a hero in this film but not the attractive person we usually see, and it was good at the end to see him sailing into the sunset - well towards Alaska - with rather a witty and charming young lady, who the captions tell us lived happily with him for many years. He certainly deserved a little peace and quiet after the rigours of this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Blood counts the most." 23 Aug 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Having won the battle of the Robin Hoods, Costner wasn't so lucky with Wyatt Earp: forget Waterworld, this is still the biggest box-office disaster of Costner's career, a $63m epic Western that struggled to make $25m at the US box-office yet somehow managed to avoid being nicknamed 'Kevin's Gate' (although it did earn Michael Madsen's unending animosity when the lengthy shoot prevented him from playing Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction). Originally intended as a mini-series and tracing the famed lawman's life from farm boy, freight driver, law student, drunk, horse thief, buffalo hunter to the aftermath of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, it's an ambitious attempt at an American epic with an increasingly unlikeable main character, but it's more of an occasionally ambitious failure than a genuine success.

Not nearly as much fun as the rival Tombstone, it's often at its best in the early scenes detailing the side of Earp that the movies previously overlooked as he goes from idealism to bitterness and misogyny following the death of his first wife. Taking its lead from Nicholas Earp's credo that family comes first and "Blood counts the most," Costner's determination not to play likable is admirable, but it casts a dour shadow over a film with increasingly little lightness or humour to break up its bleak view of an embittered man whose only real talent is for violence and make it more palatable. America tends to like its heroes cut and dried, but Costner's Earp is not so much flawed as downright unsympathetic at times - more of a 70s anti-hero than one who would find favour in the 90s, leaving a cruelly overlooked at Oscar time Dennis Quaid (stunningly good) as Doc Holliday to carry the audience sympathy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie 13 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am not a Tombstone expert, but I have visited several times, talked to residents and have read several excellent books on the subject, including one called, "...and Die in the West," by Paula Mitchell Marks." This book is an excellent accounting of the Earp era. Paula actually researched her subject and ready the accounts of the day, including the Tombstone Epitaph and the court records of the trials mentioned.

The movie accurately portrays several events I have read about in my personal research, and therefore believe to be true. The movie even includes actual dialog from the day. While it is still a movie, and is not a 100% truthful/accurate portrayal, it is pretty close to portraying the actual events of the day, much more so that the other movie of the period, Wyatt Earp, starring Val Kilmer (still a good movie.) But for truthfulness and accuracy, This is a very good movie, definitely worth watching if you want to know how it "really" was.
