The movie really does give you a sense of inhabiting the West.

Director Perry is only moderately capable of handling the talents in a film which is either meditative or boring, depending on how it is viewed.

A strange and enjoyable little take on an oft-told tale.

Audience Reviews for Doc Holliday


131105: I found Keach and Yulin a bit too stoic in their acting. They were extremely stiff almost to the point of being clumsy. But, I fully enjoyed this film. Fairly modern standards with nice costuming. An entertaining take on the infamous shoot-out. Recommended.

One of the best versions of the classic Doc Holiday & Wyatt Earp story. Stacy Keach is awesome as always. One of the favorites of the Coen Brothers.

Interesting take on the Earp/Holiday legend. A fairly accurate portrayal of Wyatt, but in the process, the most interesting character Doc Holiday, gets too soft.
