Get ready for some horse-ridin', gun-totin', whiskey-drinkin' fun in this digitally remastered collector's edition of Lawrence Kasdan's "Silverado," featuring a never-before-seen featurette with interviews from the cast and the filmmakers! The spirited Western stars Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Kevin Costner, and Danny Glover as four unwitting heroes who cross paths on their journey to the sleepy town of Silverado. Little do they know the town where their family and friends reside has been taken over by a corrupt sheriff and a murderous posse. It's up to the sharp-shooting foursome to save the day, but first they have to break each other out of jail, and learn who their real friends are. Thanks to its authentic look and spectacular cast, which also includes Rosanna Arquette, John Cleese, Brian Dennehy, Jeff Goldblum, and Oscar(r)-winner Linda Hunt (1983 Best Supporting Actress, The Year of Living Dangerously), this exciting Old West adventure created a whole new generation of Western fans and earned its "modern classic" status.

Critics Consensus: Boasting rich detail and well-told story, Silverado is a rare example of an '80s Hollywood Western done right.

Classic '80s Western has violence, language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Silverado, a 1985 Western, features a lot of shooting, but not much emphasis on blood. Life in the Old West is portrayed using a combination of the genre's clichés and far more modern thinking, and these sometimes clash jarringly. Guys threaten and shoot each other over small provocations, but the law covering such attacks seems loosely applied, which means that corruption is open and public. Many scenes take place in saloons, where adults drink, smoke, and gamble. Some women are dressed in revealing outfits, clearly indicating they are prostitutes, although their roles aren't spelled out. Language includes "s--t" and the "N" word.
