Less than I thought, but still fairly impressive.
Cowboys & Aliens
First Contact. Last Stand.
A stranger stumbles into the desert town of Absolution with no memory of his past and a futuristic shackle around his wrist. With the help of mysterious beauty Ella and the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde, he finds himself leading an unlikely posse of cowboys, outlaws, and Apache warriors against a common enemy from beyond this world in an epic showdown for survival.
Unfortunately for me I chose to watch the extended version! 2 hours and 16 minutes wasted on pure unadulterated bull twaddle!
They threw everything against the wall to see what would stick, the end result was an ugly contrived, convoluted mess!
This film is actually (generously speaking) retarded. Makes no sense and I was lost after 20 minutes, it got me in a knot that I never seemed to get out of until the end credits. For those who have watched this, try and answer these questions?
Why are there aliens?
Why is there a boat randomly in the desert?
Why does Lonergan have a arm brace that kills aliens?
Why are the aliens on Earth?
Why do the Aliens want gold, of all things?
Why is that alien women Ella Swenson relevant to anything? |
I will admit that I saw this on a plane, so maybe I've marked it half a star lower than I should, but still... There's just no excuse for a movie to be so dumb and pointless. This must have been inspired by the Snakes on a Plane team. Just so dumb.
To summarize: a too-cool-to-be-true cowboy (Daniel "James Bond" Craig, no less!!) wakes up with no memory, and some inexplicable alien weaponry attached to his hand. He's a stranger in a strange land, etc, etc. there are bad guys and really bad guys. The twist comes soon enough. There are some really really bad guys from outer space. They are super warriors and they can't be stopped. They're here…
I feel like I should be applauding the iota of originality that this Hollywood movie rides in to town with. Instead I'm left ruing, considering the premise, what could have been and longing to watch all of Firefly again.
The wild west, Daniel Craig wakes up with an alien device attached to his arm and amnesia.
He spends most of the movie stumbling around trying to find out what has happened to him.
Actually he has been abducted by alien gold miners, escaped, then makes his way to a small town which then gets attacked by aliens.
quite slow and plodding with sparse action sequences.
could have been a rip roaring action packed spectacular. instead it went out with a small squeak.
special effects are good, the action scenes (when they do arrive) are good, but not enough of them.
It was a alright movie.
Terrible. Fastest review ever.
'Cowboys and Aliens' (2011)
Neither one thing or the other. Muddled ideas with average performances.
Who came up with this stupid idea? and the hand in the aliens stomach was creepy
Daniel Craig se la pasa comiendo cochino durante toda la película.
Cowboys and Aliens follows Daniel Craig, who wakes in the middle of desert, injured, with no memory of who he is and a metal bracelet strapped to his wrist. Immediately attacked by bounty hunters, he kills them, steals their clothes and strolls to the nearest town. It'd all be very James Bond, if it wasn't for the fact that we're in the 1800's. Arriving in town, after 20 minutes of more exposition, everyone is attacked by aliens, who lasso various town members, including Harrison Ford's son and Sam Rockwell's wife. Realising that his bracelet is a weapon, Daniel Craig leads a posse to hunt down the hogtying bastards.
Whilst Craig is solid, never having to extend his repertoire beyond smoldering,…
