  "..FUN SCI-FI WESTERN.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1725)

Although it wasnt one of the best films of the year cowboys and aliens still has a high entertainment value, the cast is pretty good Harrison ford looked a bit more comfortable playing a character thats suited for his age, Craig looked good as the lead and Olivia provided the eye candy if little else, this movie should have been much better but its still great fun, take your brain out for this one you wont need it, a well polished sci-fi western with an original premise and funny crab looking aliens.

  Finaly!

| | See all earlofdenby's reviews (16)

Finaly a summer movie that has been as good as the trailer promised, this one I enjoyed after the dissapointment of blockbusters this summer. Daniel Craig is convincing as a the rough and rugged outlaw that is trying to get his memory back after waking in the middle of the dessert with a strange bracelet strapped to his wrist. Harrison Ford is Harrison ford playing a hard as nails ranch owner with a bee in his bonnet after Daniels character has robbed him of his gold. Enter the aliens hell bent on destroying everything and taking everyone and with the help of his flashbacks and a mysterious beauty, everyone join forces to hunt for the aliens and find the abducted. Jon Favereu directs and Steven Spielberg produces a great action adventure which can pass as a good authentic western when the aliens are not on screen. A big improvement to his dissapointing Iron Men movies.

  The Good, The Bond and the Very Ugly!

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

Sci-Fi and western have never gone well together as1999's disaster The Wild,Wild,West and 2010's write off Jonah Hex still resonate as Turkey's!
But with the early trailers of Cowboys & Aliens this movie looked like it could put the record straight. With being produced by Speilberg and Ron Howard and also starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and the drop dead beautiful Olivia Wilde (Tron Legacy) The movie if nothing else should be the guilty pleasure of the Summer of 2011. But with the summer being bombarded with Robots fisting them selves to death, Wizards fighting the final battle and every Marvel second grade comic book being on the screen this movie was always going to have a fight on it's hands.
The good news is that Cowboys & Aliens surpasses my expectations as it's a western first that happens to have aliens in it!
The comedy element has been toned down and the characters have been flushed out more. Craig is excellent as the stranger who walks into town missing his memory, Harrison Ford is the best he has been in ages as the gruff rauncher and Wilde is just stunning, so much so she's almost a destraction as at times I was looking at her more than the action. The creature design is great imagine a toad from hell crossed with a crab and you'll be half way there. The plot also is pretty good and tight and Directed from the same guy who did the excellent Iron Man and the flabby Avengers advert that was Iron Man 2 keeps the plot tight, with a few well timed plot reverlations and the action swift and at times brutal. The effects are great and the music score is brilliant.
Some may complain that it may miss a few action sequences to contend with the big summer event movies, but I found the slower pace a refreshing change and what it may lack in missing one or two action sequences it gains by well written characters.
This is one of the better summer event movies that although may not bring in Billion plus dollars of the likes of Transformers and Harry Potter hopefuly will gain a more cult following and with a bit of luck a sequel.
See if you like.........

  Good and Entertaining

Took my 9 year old son to see this, was very sceptical if the cowboy and alien thing would work, but to be fair it did, both daniel craig and harrison ford were superb in this.
