In this excellent, underrated historically accurate western, Kevin Costner gives the best performance of his career, and he is supporting by superb acting all around from the likes of Gene Hackman and an absolutely brilliant Dennis Quaid as Doc Holiday who absolutely destroys Val Kilmer's overrated performance in the inferior "Tombstone." "Wyatt Earp" feels real all the way though with realistic violence, and does not have action sequences for the sake of action, but rather to actually advance the story. The movie also features stunning cinematography and one of the best musical scores of all time.

Kevin Costner once again projects his own self-image of the all-American hero, this time portraying legendary frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. And as usual, it's too self-important and FAR too bloody long.

Even then however, the underused supporting cast seem far more interesting than the stone faced and characterless Costner; even the plum role of Doc Holliday (played by Dennis Quaid who is clearly enjoying himself) feels little more weighty than a cameo.
