Synopsis


Wyatt Earp
Directed by Lawrence Kasdan, this epic version of the legendary western sheriff-gunslinger's life story stars Kevin Costner as Earp, who lived from 1848 to 1929. Growing up on a farm in Iowa, Earp tries to run away to join the Union Army in the Civil War, but he is turned away because of his youth. Instead, he studies law and marries Urilla Sutherland (Annabeth Gish). But Urilla dies of typhoid fever before they can have children. Earp grows despondent and descends into drinking and petty thievery, but his father Nicholas (Gene Hackman) finds him, sobers him up, and sets him straight. Earp becomes a buffalo hunter and a close companion of Bat Masterson (Tom Sizemore) and his brother Ed (Bill Pullman). With his brothers, Virgil (Michael Madsen) and Morgan (Linden Ashby), Earp sets out to clean up the violence-plagued towns of the old West -- by using his own guns to settle scores. Earp takes up with Mattie Blaylock (Mare Winningham), a drug addict and prostitute, then discards her for actress Josie Marcus (Joanna Going). In Tombstone, Arizona, the Earp brothers and their comrade Doc Holliday (Dennis Quaid), who is plagued by tuberculosis and a compulsion for gambling, meet their match in a ruthless gang led by Ike Clanton (Jeff Fahey). ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

    This is a fantastic western movie about a legend. I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie and was delighted to find a great kevin Costner western. This movie has Dennis Quaid at his best as well as a solid role from gene Hackman. Wyatt Earp is immortalized in this movie by Kevin Costner. This movie is a little lengthy but does not drag. The ups and downs of wyatt earp are entertaining to watch and this is an entertaining thriller of wyatt earp and doc holliday with a solid western gunfight style. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys westerns, or romantic heroes.

    Good, but too long

    This is a good movie to see a more deep look at Wyatt Earp, but just too long and plus, and if you saw Tombstone, than this movie will not be as good. If you needed to do a book report on Wyatt, than you need this movie.

    Entertaining depiction of the Wyatt Earp legend. Seems like a more historically accurate portrayal than Kurt Russell's "Tombstone" which was released around the same time. Both films would make a great double feature.

    This film is great. Although I liked tombstone and open range better, this is still a great western and one of Costner's few good films. I would recommend adding this one to your collection.

    Its a good movie with a good plot, a little long, some good actors, a different view of Wyatt Earp, nothing like Tombstone.
