4.0 out of 5 stars Ride 'em cowboy! 25 Aug 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham VINE VOICE
After a somewhat slow start, Cowboys And Aliens turns into a fun scifi western. It's a surprisingly dark and gritty film, playing like a straight western at first. Imagine you're watching an old John Wayne movie. You're enjoying it, and suddenly alien spaceships come out of nowhere blasting everything in sight and kidnapping the locals. That in a nutshell is the plot, sounds ridiculous, looks ridiculous but if not taken seriously, despite the surprisingly dark and gritty tone then it's also a lot of fun. Some good performances, Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde are all very good and there's a solid supporting cast too. All the western cliches are there, Daniel Craig is the stranger with no name, Harrison Ford the rich bad man that runs the town and then the spaceships arrive. Very good fx and good action scenes make this a fun movie.

I was quite skeptical about this movie. What were they thinking about mixing two completely unlike genres, cowboys, Apaches and aliens together? Well, my mistake. The end result is both a good western and a very credible sci-fi movie. So, out of an apparent weird mix came out an original movie under a plausible story line (Sorry, no spoiler, I will not go into the details of the plot).

I really liked the performance of Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde. All three main actors have in common to be associated with their roles in previous serial movies or TV series, where they played the lead or a key role. In this movie they managed to deliver a performance quite different from the character we are used to, particularly Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde. I think this is her first key role other than "House" in which you can appreciate the quality of her acting. I hope she gets more opportunities like this to show us her talent.

As for the special effects, they are quite realistic, and it is notable that the insect-like aliens are not hidden with low lighting like in so many alien movies. The amazing thing is that the SFX are not based completely on computer animations (GCI). The film was shot using good old puppets and animatronics for the close-ups, combined with CGI for the battle scenes. Even some of the alien ships were scale models. My only quibble is that one of the alien features resembles a lot the character Kuato in Total Recall [DVD] (no spoiler again). My respects to director Jon Favreau, a great combination of old and new technology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cowboys and occasional aliens 12 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like Men in Black, a little known comic provides a high concept that makes for a great movie idea. Jon Favreau moves on from directing Iron Men to the helm of this. Also like Men in Black it just takes the concept and goes off in it's own direction, so it's not an adaptation. Just in case there may be anyone familiar with the source material.

Daniel Craig plays the man with no name. Not that one. Just a man who wakes up in the middle of the wilderness with no memory at all. And a strange metal device on his wrist that he can't get to come off.

Moments later he proves his fighting skills taking down a trio of bounty hunters - in one of the first of a few moments that will have you thinking this is a bit bloody and violent for a 12 certificate - and picks up a cute border collie as a companion.

Then he drifts into a dirtwater town in the middle of nowhere. Patched up by a gun toting preacher medicine man [excellent supporting acting from Clancy Brown] he's swiftly in the middle of a conflict between the former military man turned rancher Colonel Dolarhyde [Harrison Ford] the latter's never do well son, and the townsfolk such as Sam Rockwell's bar owner, who suffer as a result of the latter. Not that the sheriff who wouldn't have a job if it wasn't for the colonel has been able to do much about it. But now he might have to. Since the man with no name is on a wanted poster.

But there's also a mysterious woman who needs the man with no names' help.

So far so western, save for one set piece that shows a few cattle problems. And as a western, it's very good.

The aliens pop up for the first time in a well executed set piece involving a night attack on the town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Sci-Fi Western! 31 July 2011
By Kathy W
I know it sounds a little bizarre, but this is a Sci-Fi movie where the Aliens attack Cowboys. Set amidst the desert, magnificent rock formations and canyons of New Mexico, this 2011 release was a hoot! There is plenty of CGI and action, with Daniel Craig (James Bond 007, etc.) and Harrison Ford (Star Wars, etc.). This is a good one to see on the big screen with full sound.

The 2 hour and 13 minute movie opens with Jake Lonegan/Daniel Craig coming to in the desert. He does not know who he is or what happened to him. He is wearing a wide metal armband that he cannot remove, has no boots, and he has a significant wound in his side. Three men and a dog ride up to him and the men are not very hospitable. But, not to worry--Jake kicks their collective backsides and rides off with a horse, boots, a change of clothes, and the dog. In a nearby small town, he finds help with his wound, meets some folks, and renews some acquaintances. We realize quickly that Jake can take care of himself, too.

Also in town, Jake finds out his name, and that he is wanted for murder, mayhem, and a bunch of other stuff. We find out the town is practically owned by Harrison Ford, the cattleman whose money puts meat on everyone's table. We also meet Ford's arrogant son, Percy. Daddy's power and money have obviously gone to Percy's head. And, we also meet the Aliens, as they begin a seek and destroy mission that grabs a good number of the town's people and takes them away. Ford and Lonegan and other town folk head out on horseback to see if they can find out what is going on. Oh yeah, there is a pesky woman following Lonegan, too.

I actually saw this movie Friday night. I loved it so much that when my little boy (age 38) wanted to see it today, back I went!

3.0 out of 5 stars Weird but mildly entertaining.
As the title suggests, the film is about an unlikely encounter between a bunch of lawless cowboy types and some ugly aliens. A combination that doesn't really work. Read more
