TOP MOVIE !!!By a customer from GLASGOW , 04 Mar 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Lawrence Kasdan's Silverado is a fond hark back to the all-star, big-budget westerns of the 1950s and 1960s. The various plotlines converge at the town of Silverado, held in thrall by crooked sheriff Brian Dennehy and his behemoth 'deputies.' The four disparate heroes--Kevin Kline, Kevin Costner, Scott Glenn and Danny Glover--prepare to do battle against Dennehy for personal reasons ranging from mercenary to altruistic. Sidelines characters include duplicitous, dandified gambler Jeff Goldblum, frontier widow Rosanna Arquette and gimlet-eyed saloon owner Linda Hunt. The film is stolen hands-down by Kevin Costner, playing an irresponsible young gunslinger who never speaks when hootin' and hollerin' will do. A classic, High Noon-style showdown caps this rousing retro western.

a gold for silveradoBy rod39 (2 reviews) , 19 Nov 2012Silverado. A lovely crafted western in the classic mode of the best of John Ford westerns. Action ,comedy all supplied by great actors and director. The addition of the `behind the camera` supplement allows one to appreciate the editing, camera work, music etc.
Little boy fantasyBy a customer from London , 23 Aug 2010I got this to see how Kevin Kline - one of my favourite actors - managed a western. The answer was as badly as everyone else in it - Linda Hunt excepted. Lawrence Kasdan needs to stick to directing (though it is kind of endearing the way he slips in family members). This plot is all over the place; far too many characters (mostly baddies) for me to follow it, and they did rather look alike... But I guess there is a school of thought that says as long as you have the setting (dry dusty cow towns), saloons, characters who frown a lot by way of dialogue (Kevin Costner went embarrassingly the other way), regular shootouts, even a showdown, and testostarone-flavoured music (Magnificent Seven anyone?), you don't need anything else.
Well I'm sorry fellas, but you do.

A Traditional WesternBy a customer from England , 28 Sep 2008Great performances from all concerned help make this a film worth seeing. A great cast of Kevin Costner,Scott Glen, Kevin Kline and Danny Glover with a cameo role from John Cleese playing John Cleese. A classic Western plot of little town ruled by big bad landowner but into the town come a group of heroes to save the day. The humour and performances lift this above the average.
