It's difficult to assign responsibility for the most serious of this film's shortcomings, but one thing is clear: somewhere along the way, the creative process misfired.

Highly stylized fashion-wise but awkwardly unfocused in its plotlines, it aims for the western iconography of Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone but never gets past its own directorial hurdles.

This is just one hell of a tight ship all round and anyone from action fans, to western buffs, to just folks who like decent films should bring plenty home from this puppy.

The film is a mess, there are two or three pre-climaxes but no climax.

Taken on its own terms, with some lowered expectations, Western fans will have fun.

Tombstone is nothing special, but when it sticks to its guns it generally finds its target.

Plays like a three-hour rough cut that's been trimmed down to a slightly shorter rough cut.
