Enjoyable post-modern western romp with a solid ensemble cast and a memorable cameo from John Cleese.

Well-paced Western, good performances. Corny at times. Like most films in this genre it's a morality play. The good guys win. This is something I can watch many times and still have a good old time.

Silverado is one of my favorite movie from growing up and remains one of my favorite westerns. Other reviewers have commented that they don't know what the fuss was about with this movie, but I do. Its a movie for and by people who love westerns. It hits all the classic western components, but does it with style rather than just throwing everything together. A fun adventure great for an afternoon.

This was one of the better movies of '85. But like most older shows, when you see it again, you wonder what all the fuss was about.

Slow, typical Western

Four cowboys come together from different walks of life, and ends up in the town of "Silverado", where come together to battle a corrupt sheriff (Brian Dennehy) and an equally corrupt rancher who takes over the family land of one of them.

If you are a fan of the old Westerns, you will notice that just about everything seen in them is in this movie. You get the corrupt sheriff, about two jail breaks, a few bar room brawls, shootouts, ambushes and just about every other cliche you can think of.

I would suggest that, if at all possible, you watch this movie in letterbox format. There is a lot of scenery in this film that looks pretty good full-screen (the version I saw was formatted to fit the screen), but would look even better if you can see the whole picture.

This is a real st...
