Trivia

In the scene where Augie tries to jump on Jake's horse and falls to the ground, the horse is wearing Jake's hat. This was Costner's idea just before the cameras rolled to keep with his character's goofy nature. Kasdan loved the idea, and it stayed in the film. See more »

Goofs

As Rae is coming down the stairs to talk to Mal when they see each other for the first time, her dress has a ruffle across her shoulders, flapping in the breeze. She talks to Mal and the camera cuts between them,and also has a side view. When the camera cuts back to her, the ruffle is neatly tucked into her shawl without her having adjusted her shawl at all.

Entertaining...

'Silverado', Co-Written & Directed by Lawrence Kasdan, is an Entertaining Western Flick, that manages to hold your attention in the goings-on. Even the performances, are well-done, that only add to it's booty.

'Silverado' depicts a chance encounter between a group of cowboys who travel to the town of Silverado, where they thwart the plans of a rancher and a corrupt sheriff.

Though the entire concept of the Good challenging the Evil, has been told on celluloid a dozen of times, 'Silverado', however, manages to convince it's viewer, thanks to it's interesting screenplay. Lawrence & Mark Kasdan's Screenplay is nice, and plays it safe. The Action Sequences are very well shot, while the Cinematography is good. Editing & Art Design deserve a mention.

Performance-Wise: Kevin Kline is good. Scott Glenn is efficient. Kevin Costner & Danny Glover are in form. Jeff Goldblum, Linda Hunt, Rosanna Arquette & John Cleese lend very good support. Brian Dennehy is excellent as the corrupt sheriff.

On the whole, 'Silverado' succeeds by entertaining it's viewer.
