Less Condescending Than Walker...
26 September 2020 | by dungeonstudioSee all my reviews

It took me a moment to 'get into' this movie. Kurt Russell and Tombstone still clear in my mind. And this seemed like it was going to be a cheap knockoff. But as history and details are told, it drew me in to what is actually factual to the legend and what might have been glossed over or taken liberty with. A bit jarring at points as the interviewer seems so modern and mechanical. Or Kate's recalling refers to Doc and the Earp clan as 'females' in a bitter tone. And a scene of the Earp posse cruising up to the OK Corral in a modern police unit seems out of left field - but quickly invokes memories of Rodney King and the more recent cold blooded shootings of black criminals by police. The actors get more intense as they recall events, and become pretty convincing in their recollections. And by the end, it leaves the viewer questioning history, the legend, the glorification and liberties taken over the years. And what is the accurate points or not? Whereas Cox's film 'Walker' seemed condescending that the viewer should've known more about the Nicaraguan blight and history before Alex dismantled it all with his retelling and modern comparisons/insertions. Tombstone Rashomon awkwardly re-pieces the story from the ground up, and rebuilds the legend - with some questions at the end.
