Slam-bang, in-your-face action western, in fully charged "Hollywoodized" format. Small league posse tires to take the law into their own hands to "right" a small town's immoral code of ethics. A-list cast shines in a story well told, even if it asks the viewer to suspend their disbelief at certain moments. Photography, color, and scenery, are all great, and the action sequences are exceedingly well done. Proof that a popcorn movie doesn't have to be dumb . . . or overlong. Great fun.

Underrated, well cast, well acted, rich on details, this Western from Lawrence Kashdan is one of the most memorable films of the genre even though it tells a story that we may know very well, but then again which Western has such a thick story? Compared to the only other western of Kashadan that I have seen( Wyatt Earp), Silverado is far far better. It's also finely shot throughout and although it gets tired towards the end watching the predicable ending take place, the style of the film can outlive it all.
