Wyatt Earp (1994)
Wyatt Earp doesn’t get to go to war with his brothers, but when the rest of his family relocates to California, he begins a career in the Wild West. After a tragic first marriage, he has a rough time as a drunk and a thief, but in Dodge City becomes a ruthless marshall. Gathering his brothers around him, he moves on to Tombstone Arizona in hopes of making his fortune, but run square into the political power machine of the local ranchers.

This is one of the best, and underrated, westerns ever made. It was a very intense, interesting character study of a famous lawman, showing flaws and all. In fact, this is the only version, I believe, that really shows the sadistic side of Wyatt Earp, and what made him a bitter man. To be fair, it also shows his good traits.

It also has a terrific, deep cast and features a good mix of drama, romance and action. Even the music grows on you after several viewings. There is no humor in here: this is a serious story. Unlike the more popular “Tombstone,” this Earp story has a lot less profanity and almost no usage of the Lord’s name in vain….but there is rough language and some crude sexual remarks, so don’t watch it with the kiddies.

At rate, the movie is a lot better than the critics would have you believe. (All nationally-known critics but one panned this, as far as I know.)

Kevin Costner performed one of his better acting jobs. It was nice to see Michael Madsen and Tom Sizemore as good guys. That’s not seen in too many films! They were low-key characters, too. Dennis Quaid did a nice job as the fascinating “Doc Holliday.” It’s generally conceded that Val Kilmer’s “Doc” in “Tombstone” was the best-ever, but Quaid version is just fine, thank you, and gets better and better with each viewing.

This is a long movie, but it’s never dull and it never overdoes the action, either. The cast is deep so you see a lot of familiar actors. As mentioned, this film is extremely underrated. I know most people prefer “Tombstone” but I’ll take this version of the Earp saga any time!
