A CLASSIC Authentic Old-West film.

A very "real-life" character depiction of much of life in the old West. It is not a KIDS movie, the language and violence rules that out, but if you have a box that deletes that sort of language and if you talk to your kids about life in the old West, then the rest works pretty good for families with older kids.

A great movie held back by sexual content.

There is an implied rape at the beginning of the movie. A scene takes place with a painting in the near background depicting a fully nude woman with an unobstructed view for several seconds (20+). A female character alludes to sex making a male character feel better followed by a caress/fondling of the character's clothed groin. Violence is moderate considering the length of the movie. The age and style of the movie reduce the impact of the violence and gore, placing it into an unrealistic realm. Positive messages can be found in Wyatt Earp & his brothers' strong will to do what they feel is right, only changing their position when it is right to do so. I was screening for my soon to be 13-year-old, think I'll have him wait until 14 or 15.

Historical fiction

My husband and I have always enjoyed Tombstone, and finally decided to show it to our two boys. We generally stay away from fare we deem too violent, but make exceptions with some historical fiction. We are watching it tonight and will walk through the history with them.

Bloody, brutal and brilliant!

The violence is brutal, and contains spurting blood, sometimes graphically. Language includes the f-word.
