Well-meaning western yarn starring Costner in the title role but it's too slow-moving and uneven to digest as anything riveting regarding the Wild West. Kasdan's Wyatt Earp definitely ends up shoots blanks
Though handsome to look at (cinematography is by Owen Roizman), the movie is overlong, stately, and too detailed for its own good; director Kasdan claims his version if more accurate, which may be true, but it doesn't make for a good picture.
