The Old West.. where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world. 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he's been...

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 Speilbergand 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.

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.

 New twist on the western

I waited a good time for this to be on the cinema and it was worth the wait, I enjoyed this a lot and have put my name down for the DVD release, if you not seen it then go, a sci-fi with a twist
