WYATT EARP'S REVENGE (2012) Directed by Michael Feifer,

This straight to video film is atrocious. Badly acted and directed with little or no attempt at period atmosphere. Val Kilmer plays the ageing Wyatt Earp being interviewed by a reporter and recounting the story of how he hunted down the killer of the woman he loved, dance hall singer, Dora Hand. Along the way he enlists the aide of Bat Masterson, Charlie Bassett and Bill Tilghman. Although inspired by a true event (the accidental killing of Dora Hand) the plot of the movie is total nonsense.The lawmen named had, at best, only a peripheral involvement in the events and no pursuit, as depicted in the film took place. The only cast member worth mentioning is Kilmer and he delivers a strange monotone performance of no interest. Rating *
