  • Just probably the greatest Western movie from the golden era!
  • When Kurt Russell (as Wyatt Earp) flips, he really flips ... and hell is coming with him!
  • Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday is one of the greatest performances ever on screen. If we were in charge he would have had an oscar, no question.
  • Just an awesome awesome cast.

The story is set in the famous lawless town of Tombstone, Arizona, at a time when all the worst desperados in the territory gather forces into an outlaw gang ironically called The Cowboys.

The Cowboys number some of the fastest guns and worst reputations in the West. But one day famed lawman Wyatt Earp comes to town with his brothers and their wives, looking for a peaceful place to settle down. But the marauding cowboys make it difficult for anyone to stay out of their way.

Soon Earp's brothers and his old friend Doc Holliday are taking oaths as lawmen. Earp is drawn, against his will, into a spectacular showdown and shoot out with the Cowboys at the OK Corral. But that's not the end of the story; not all of the Cowboys were killed in the gunfight, and Earp finds himself and his family threatened by the outlaws.

When his brother Morgan is killed, Earp finally takes the oath as a U.S. Marshal, deputizes some renegade outlaws, and sets out to clean up the town of Tombstone once and for all...

All right, Clanton... you called down the thunder, well now you've got it! You see that?

[pulls open his coat, revealing a badge]

It says United States Marshal![terrified, pleading] Wyatt, please, I...

[referring to Stilwell, laying dead]

Take a good look at him, Ike... 'cause that's how you're gonna end up!

[shoves Ike down roughly with his boot]

The Cowboys are finished, you understand? I see a red sash, I kill the man wearin' it!

[lets Ike up to run for his life]

So run, you cur... RUN! Tell all the other curs the law's comin'!


You tell 'em I'M coming... and hell's coming with me, you hear?...


Hell's coming with me!

Doc Holliday
What makes a man like Ringo, Doc? What makes him do the things he does?A man like Ringo has got a great big hole, right in the middle of him. He can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it.What does he need?Revenge.For what?Bein' born.

Doc Holliday
Where is he?Down by the creek, walking on water.
Wyatt Earp
[to Ike Clanton] You die first, get it? Your friends might get me in a rush, but not before I make your head into a canoe, you understand me?
Doc Holliday
It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.
