I think maybe this movie was overhyped for me before I watched it, cuz other than Val being entertaining, I wasn't all that impressed.
I don't care for VK generally but he was certainly the best thing in Tombstone, which I don't care for otherwise.
But I'm not going to knock it too much. It apparently is this generation's western, and anything that makes the genre more popular -- and perhaps, influences younger people to investigate the masterpieces of the past -- I'm all in favor of.
The western will never be as ever-present as it once was (for various reasons I won't go into), but it would be nice to see some sort of comeback.
I actually preferred Quaid's Doc Holliday
I didn't care for his Doc, though admittedly it was not as horrific as his psycho Sam Houston in The Alamo
For me the role of Doc Holliday will always belong to Kirk Douglas in Gunfight At The OK Corral
