Decent action flick

on 6/1/2012

You certainly can call this one original. However, the combination of cowboys and aliens doesn't neccessarily have the spark that you would hope for. The characters are not quite believable enough to really make it work all the way through. Still, I really enjoyed seeing Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford together on screen.

Editors Note
Note Based on the graphic novel by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, COWBOYS & ALIENS is set in 1800s Arizona, where the local cowboys, headed by gunslinger Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig), and the indigenous Apache tribe have been feuding fiercely for quite a while. Their skirmish is interrupted, however, by the appearance of a spaceship, commanded by an alien creature that's bent on enslaving the human race. It's time for a six-gun shoot-out between these cattle rustlers and space invaders, and there might even be a temporary peace between the cowboys and Indians as they both take aim at these extraterrestrial uninvited guests. Jon Favreau directs from a script by STAR TREK scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with help from LOST's Damon Lindelof. Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell fill out the headlining cast.
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's ambitious and well-made. The acting from the large cast is of a high standard, Craig and Ford were more or less born into their roles..." 07/27/2011
Entertainment Weekly "There are nifty scenes, like the horseback riders battling silvery skeletal airplanes..." 08/05/2011
Rolling Stone "The gifted cinematographer Matthew Libatique lights Ford and Craig like Western giants against the rugged landscape." 08/18/2011
Hollywood Reporter "[T]his film from Jon Favreau shrewdly blends an alien-invasion movie into a Western....COWBOYS & ALIENS is a solid success." 07/24/2011
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's professional, respectable, canters along at an even pace, the action/exposition ratio well managed..." 09/01/2011
