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.

What an odd combination. Even now having watched it and thoroughly enjoyed it, I can't quite get my head around it.

I've always felt that any film can be elevated by top notch actors. Think Star Wars, X-Men or Lord of the Rings. All of them have a wealth of seasoned and highly talented actors in tow. And Cowboys and Aliens is no different.

Daniel Craig is fantastic in the role of gun fighter/outlaw and Harrison Ford brilliant as a John Wayne esque ranch owner/ex civil war veteran. They both bring enough acting talent and gravitas to the film to outweigh the film's eyebrow raising premise.

The first 30 minutes or so are spent building the characters and it's flawless. It completely hooked me in. The balance of the film played out as expected, the aliens finally take a beating and that was that. I had a great time and I'm quite sure it's a film I'll be watching again.

However, if I'm wearing my critical hat I'd have to say that although a properly enjoyable B-movie in the vein of Independence Day, I reckon with this cast they could have made a really top quality western. I'm not sure they needed the aliens. Before watching the film I could not imagine Daniel Craig playing a cowboy. After watching it, I'm struggling to think of many actors past or present who can play the tough, silent, ruthless gunslinger any better. Seriously his performance was up there with Clint Eastwood or John Wayne.

I reckon there's a western revival coming and Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford should be at the head of the queue.

I'd almost say this film was a missed opportunity, but it really wasn't, I thoroughly enjoyed it. But as I said, I still can't quite get my head around it.

If you like westerns and you like good sci-fi then this is the film for you. Don't take it too seriously and it'll scratch most of your itches.

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!
