Chicago Sun-Times -
This movie is more sophisticated and complicated than the Westerns of my childhood, and it is certainly better looking and better acted.
Engrossing western which inspired a huge genre revivial.
TV Guide -
Between the gratuitous climaxes that seem to occur every 10 minutes, Kasdan parades a myriad of stereotypes before us and never develops them. In fact, he never really explores any of his characters but only provides them with enough motivation to justify the slaughter of dozens of people.
In 1880, four men travel together to the city of Silverado. They come across many dangers before they finally engage the 'bad guys' and bring peace and equality back to the city.
