I found this movie to be exciting entertaining and all around fun. Tommy Lee Jones at his best, and Duval unmatchable. I would recommend this to movie watchers of all ages.
One of the last, best western movies for sure, even if it is 6 and half hours long! Hadn't watched it in a few years, had to buy it & still as great as I remember. Also bought the Return to LD, which I've not seen, to follow-up the story which I'm still waiting to recieve.
One of the best, if not the best, miniseries of all time.
I love this movie. I have watched it a number of times and only owned the VHS version and wanted the DVD version so I can give away my VHS copy. It is definitely the kinds of movies I wish we saw more of - loved the Old West era and felt the choice of actors in this movie were superb!
This movie is so well written and acted. You feel as though you are right there.. Everyone should see this movie!
I don't normally like western movies, but I really liked this one. Anyone addicted to movies such as Broken Trail and Open Range will enjoy this movie.
If you only have a recording from TV on tape or the older pan and scan version on DVD then treat yourself to this widescreen version in 5.1 surround sound and the 50 minute featurette "The Making of an Epic". Also enterviews with Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, the cast and director Simon Wincer. If you've never seen this classic then buy it, you won't regret it and the good price!
Great true to life account of the old west.
One of my favorite movies. Love it! I have owned it for years but bought this one for my dad!
Went to school with Mr. McMurtry's sister, but did not know him personally. Have read several of his books tho. Really like Robert Duvall a lot, but wish he could have continued. Jon Voight does a good job filling in for Tommy Lee in the sequel, as does Barbara Hershey, but wish Anjelica Houston would have continued. Filming this movie obviously took some doing. Have seen it at least a dozen times.
ordered this for my brother.he loves it! arrived promptly.he called to tell me how much he loves it it was exzactly as described.thanks
awesome western one of the best made
My husband could not believe I had never seen this "made for tv movie." My father and my husband both love it. I'm so glad we bought one for us and one for my Dad. He just bought a new tv and can't wait to watch it wide screen with surround sound!
I cannot imagine anyone else portraying Gus and Woodrow than Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones. Larry Mcmurtrys masterpiece pulls at your heart strings and makes you understand the true meaning of friendship and giving someone your word on a promise.
I'm very much satisfied with this DVD.
This is an excellent story line, and there is significant screen play here to the point of it being example of what should be done in future westerns concerning both the screen work as well as the acting; however, the extensive length of this cinematic adventure makes this somewhat torturous device that must be taken in segments, or have great preparation for this experience. This would most certainly be one of the few videos I would ever watch for this period of time. If you can stand the length to see the wondrous work in action, then this is most assuredly the bit for you; however, if you plan on doing anyting constructive within the five and a half hours that you will be watching this, it is highly recommended that you watch someting else.
Lonesome Dove in DVD format, what else do you want ?
This movie is one to watch over and over if you are into great stories.
I have seen this many times and bought it to watch many more.
Robert Duvall & Tommy Lee Jones are excellent together in a story of true freindship.
Great movie and great way to get movies
I always wanted to own this movie. Now I have it on DVD and at a great price. Thanks Walmart.
