Cowboys and Aliens

Posted on July 30, 2011


Cowboys and Aliens – Daniel Craig wakes up in a desert-like place known as Absolution with a big honking bracelet on his wrist and no memory of his name, reminding you of a Clint Eastwood movie and then he beats the living daylights out of half dozen bad dudes, again ala Eastwood. Harrison Ford is an sob of a cattle rancher with the nastiest, most mean-spirited son ever. It takes forever to get to where you can figure out what’s going on. There’s this alien spacecraft that makes occasional visits and snatches up folks with tether-like hooks. An ethereal (I believe that’s the word) lady follows Craig around, I think because of his great looking rear that the camera keeps focusing on, although here it’s for some other reason.
It really is sort of entertaining if you don’t mind some of the most disgusting aliens I’ve seen, not at all like E.T. and it’s at least 30 minutes too long with intense fighting and blowing up stuff. Keith Carradine is pretty cool as the sheriff. Cowboys and aliens just don’t belong together.
