Kevin Costner plays the most famous lawman ever to stride the Wild West. In a gritty, complex portrayal hailed as a "classic American performance" (Bob Campbell, Newhouse Newspapers), Academy Award winner Costner (Dances with Wolves, The Bodyguard) plays the man who became a myth in acclaimed director Lawrence Kasdan's (The Big Chill, Silverado) epic, action-filled saga. Gene Hackman, an Oscar winner for Unforgiven, as Wyatt's iron-willed father, and Dennis Quaid (The Big Easy, The Right Stuff) as Earp's deadly best friend Doc Holliday add power to this mammoth, hard-hitting Western. From Wichita to Dodge City to the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. Wyatt Earp is a thrilling journey of romance, adventure and desperate, heroic action.

Critics Consensus: Easy to admire yet difficult to love, Wyatt Earp buries eye-catching direction and an impressive cast in an undisciplined and overlong story.

A great Western that was unfairly disparaged back in 1994. The authentic Wyatt Earp is actually a much-better film than the pulpier, more-popular Tombstone.

Long, violent retelling of Old West legend; some drug use.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Wyatt Earp is a long, Oscar-nominated biopic that contains some bloody violence as a result of gun and fist fights. The movie follows the life of legendary gunslinger and lawman, Wyatt Earp (Kevin Costner), following his journey from young boy through to the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Guns feature heavily and are used readily as vendettas are settled with bullets. Some deaths are realistic and bloody while others are more "classic" Westerns kills, with people clutching their bodies and falling through windows. Other characters die of illness. Earp's judge father, Nicholas Earp (Gene Hackman), teaches him strong values, including family and law. But he fails to stick to them when faced with violence and tragedy. There is brief nudity and a mild sex scene. Some characters are sex workers and characters discuss paying for sex. There is one use of "f--k" and other milder bad language throughout. A character becomes an opium user and attempts suicide by overdose. There is a lot of alcohol consumption and Earp quits drinking after a drunken incident. With a runtime of over three hours, a degree of patience is required to sit through the movie in its entirety.
