  • As Westerns go, Silverado delivers elaborate gun-fighting scenes, legions of galloping horses, stampeding cattle, a box canyon, covered wagons, tons of creaking leather and even a High Noonish duel. How it manages to run the gamut of cowboy movie elements without getting smart-alecky is intriguing. But on the important issues, like real character development, Silverado flakes apart.

  • Silverado looks great and moves fast. Mr. Kasdan has packed his action well against the fearsomely long, dusty stretches of Western plain. [11 Jul 1985, p.1] show more

  • This movie is more sophisticated and complicated than the Westerns of my childhood, and it is certainly better looking and better acted. show more

    This is the best western of modern times. It features a who's who of actors, including a young Kevin Costner before he was a star. The images, music, and background are breathtaking. The story is well written. Everything you could ask for in a western.
