Cowboys & Aliens


Movie in a glimpse:
A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region. A posse of cowboys and natives are all that stand in their way."- IMDB

My talk:
To be honest, I nearly fell asleep twice during the show. There were scenes in which did not flow nicely with the movie, one scene they were very tense and the scene after calm as the water.

Daniel Craig + Harrison in a sci-fi wild west film , with the addition of Oliver Wilde would sure to generate a lot of hype over the movie even more so when it is based on a graphic novel that was popular in the US.

It is based on a comic, so be sure to watch out for illogical storylines and messed up shit.

There were SCENES in which you see the actors were face to face with the very well built and ugly alien and nothing was done in those moments, I can understand fear for maybe one of two scenes. But these were more den a little amount.

The aliens are overpowered but somehow by sheer dumb luck, they did not win.

Stamped and mailed:
I don’t think anyone with no interest in the movie what so ever should watch it, unless after watching the trailer you became interested.

It is based on a graphic novel, so don't expect it to make much sense.

I know many people will like it because it is still a decent film.

If you were to choose between the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and this one.
You should watch “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” first

Ultimate Mega spoiler! :
When Jake(Daniel) wanted to get rid of the bracelet, he couldn’t and later it was later said he need only to clear his mind to get it off. We have seen him being knocked out early before or went unconscious but the bracelet never came off at those times!

Other reviews of the same movie:
