    Chicago Tribune Gene Siskel

    Silverado is a completely successful physical attempt at reviving the western, but its script would need a complete rewrite for it to become more than just a small step in a full-scale western revival. [10 Jul 1985, p.5]

    Wall Street Journal Julie Salamon

    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]

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