5 A excellent film for both sci-fi and western fans!dragonlord | 15/01/2012 | See all dragonlord's reviews (442)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Number 1 Games Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer Top 100 Books Reviewer Top 100 Clothing Reviewer The first thing that made me think Cowboys & Aliens might be a very good film was when I saw the trailer which showed it had my childhood favourite actor "Harrison Ford" whom starred in such classic sci-fi films as Star Wars and Blade Runner and "Daniel Craig" another great actor who is the new James Bond and has also starred in the films The Golden Compass and The Invasion. The special effects looked very impressive in the tailer too and with those two very big name actors, I just knew this film was going to be something rather special and it was even better then I was hoping for. The film starts off like a normal type western part from the fact that Daniel Craig has this hi-tec piece of equipment stripped and locked onto his wrist after waking up in the middle of nowhere not knowing where he is or who is. These not so nice cowboys come across him stranded in the middle of nowhere and start being nasty towards him which is a big mistake because Daniel Craig is like the James Bond of cowboys and kills them all with ease!Daniel Craig makes into a small town and this is where we get to meet Harrison Ford who plays a tough cattle rancher owner who used to be a general in the army. Fords son was causing trouble in the town and he tries his tough boy act on with Daniel Craig whom nearly knocks him out with one punch and then the young trouble maker gets up and shoots his gun which the bullet hits another town member. So he gets arrested and his rich daddy Ford has to try and free his son for his foolish behaviour. Daniel Craig may not know his name but he is a wanted a man dead or alive!As Ford rides into town with his men the Aliens arrive soon after in their small ufo's and start picking the people up one by one and taking them away. Daniel Craigs hi-tec piece of equipment on his wrist comes to life and shoots one of the ufo's down with a mega blast. All the town folk have had loved ones taken away from the aliens and they must all work as a team if they are to get their loved ones back safe and sound. The aliens are a lot stronger then us humans and can run very fast too. They have extra arms inside their chest which opens up and you can also see their heart beating there too. The action in this film is very exciting and well filmed and I also found the story to be well told too. I am a massive fan of both sci-fi and western films and the way Cowboys & Aliens mixed these two genres together is amazing and I can't see how anyone could've done a better job really. "Olivia Wilde" makes a lovely bit a eye candy and the blu-ray picture is razor sharp. If you like your sci-fi and western films like I do then hopefully you should love this film as much me because in my humble opinion it should not be missed.
