"Kurt can 'Pump me full of lead' anyday. Wink wink nudge nudge."
4 stars (Worth A Look)

I love Kurt. I love westerns. So shoot me. NO! Owwie.

This is the only movie based on the life of Wyattand his siblings that I feel does the boys justice.

First, I'll let those non history buffs know what's up.
Wyatt Earp and his brothers and their best bud Doc Holiday move to Tombstone to give up the rough life. They find chicks and bang them and are all happy until some upstarts start shit with them. Then, they basically just shoot their asses.

While this is a shoot-em-up film, I really like the way it's more than that. We sympathise with the brothers. Who are actually pretty ruthless when you think about it. But we like them. They are endearing in their "i'm big and bad and the fastest gun in this state!" attitude. Even Val Kilmer doesn't annoy me. Probably because I always thought Doc was cooler that anyone (except Cole Younger, but no one is) beforehand.

The movie is so well done I think that even people who would normally shy away from a western would find this entertaining.
