Cowboys & Aliens Review
Oh sit down and enjoy a western, science fiction, action thriller starring none other than blue-eyed, blond hair, smooth, suave and sophisticated British Agent 007, Daniel Craig and from the Indiana Jones’ series ruggedly handsome, virile and adventure seeking Harrison Ford.
Can you picture Daniel Craig dressed in a western outfit complete with a hip holster carrying a gun–a six-shooter, toting man of the wild west riding a horse?
I didn’t have any problems recognizing ruggedly, still handsome with a wry smile, blond flecked peppered hair, Harrison Ford because he can still carry that Indy trademark for fighting in those heavy action packed scenes he’s so famously noted and he can still cut those rocky scenes on his horse without missing a beat.

Now throw into the mix Aliens from outer space complete with a mothership. Yes, you read correctly. This movie takes place in the 1800’s during an era that we, today, would not have considered aliens roaming the wild west fighting Indians much less cowboys. Don’t forget the indigenous Arizona mesa Native American Apaches with bows and arrows filled with historic legends of these space creatures, now have to join forces with the “white” man to fight these grotesque alien intruders from another world.
The uncomplicated plot has a town called Absolution that is being wrecked and terrified by these aliens from the future (definitely another dimension) that the local preacher calls “demons.” These demons are abducting, pillaging, and destroying Absolution and the Apaches.
The opening scene is, in itself, quick to brand the main character, Jake (Daniel Craig) as an amnesic tied to a high-tech, out of this world, metal computer wristlet wrapped to his left arm as a weapon.
So who is this Jake? Where did he come from? Is Jake from the future? Why is the mysterious metal computer armed with a high-tech laser weaponized computer chip wrapped to his arm?

Don’t let me forget the mysterious rather tall, slender and very sexy brunette, Ella, played by Olivia Wilde, who has a secret she cannot reveal but she holds the key to unlocking the mystery of how to destroy these aliens.
This movie blends the times of the wild west with the future. Each character is strong and has delivered quite well the message intended for the audience–action, mystery, thriller.
