That is totally a matter of opinion. However if you are interested to which film better suits you; If you want to know a bit more of Wyatt Earp's history growing up and before he went to Tombstone, then Wyatt Earp may be more for you. If you are looking for more action while still maintaining great character development and an accurate but more condensed story then Tombstone is for you.
However, if you want both then you could watch the first half of Wyatt Earp. To the point where they say they are heading for Tombstone, then pop Tombstone in. Or just watch both films.
In Tombstone, Wyatt Earp is more of a character; in Wyatt Earp, he's a person. Edit
The Expanded Version of this film was only released in the US. Here it is available on VHS and Laserdisc. A DVD edition does not yet exist. The extensions have a duration of almost 20 minutes. The Expanded Edition is nothing more than a nice extension with a closer look on some of the events in the movie. Some changeovers are not as sudden as they were in the Theatrical Version, some things make a bit more sense, but all in all the movie sure does work fine without all this. Fans will cherish the extension of a western epic while for the rest of the audience the movie is now simply longer than it was before. Edit
