About the Movie
Bruce Willis and James Garner are out to make a movie and solve a murder in Blake Edward's "Sunset," the fictional adventures of two of America's greatest real-life heroes.Willis (The Fifth Element, Die Hard) stars as Tom Mix - Hollywood's hottest action-hero who's been cast to play the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp. Trouble is, Earp (Garner, Twilight, Maverick) has been hired to work as a technical expert on the film - and this doesn't sit too well with the big at-the-top-of-his-career movie star Mix. Even worse... Earp doesn't take too well to movie moguls and the fancy studio life. So, Old West and New Hollywood collide and inadvertently become a vivid backdrop for one of the most shocking murder mysteries ever to scorch the silver screen. Come back to a lost time when movies were movies, murders were mayhem and heroes were just plain outrageous, in "Sunset"... the action-packed adventure this side of Hollywood and Vine. It's the truth, every word of it... give or take a lie or two!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's a plot that unravels on its own, without characters, without anything, not even a point of view. It's a zombie.
Rotten: Ultimately, Sunset plays like deluxe dinner theater fare. It's a diversion to take along with your after-meal coffee and dessert.
Rotten: Half of the movie wants to be cheerful, and the other half seems morbid and disenchanted.
Rotten: A tale that is not quite a comedy, or a murder mystery, or a crime thriller, or an expose of Hollywood slime, but manages to make half-hearted stabs in all these directions.
The movie is a fun time but if you buy it from a (good) Mac you get SD and not HD.
I rented Sunset and we liked it well enough to want to own a copy. So I purchased it on iTunes and -surprise!- I am getting a 1.1GB copy, which is clearly the SD version and not the HD version which I expected would be what was available for purchase. (Why, you may ask? Well, because you can currently RENT it in either SD or HD.)
It would be helpful if Apple could make purchases more clear (in the future… too late for me now, sadly).
