I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
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.
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.
Cowboys & Aliens is as ridiculous as it sounds its throughly messy and all over the place with cheap looking aliens and unlikeable characters but at least the film was led by James Bond and Indiana Jones.
I seriously hope the purpose of this movie was money laundry.
Jon Favreau's direction is great as usual and the film looks pretty enough...but everything else is just done to a minimal standard. How on Earth do you go and waste a western/scifi starring HARRISON FORD, DANIEL CRAIG AND SAM ROCKWELL??!!!
Wonderful clash of the future & western cultures.
De una premisa tan ridícula, sale una decente película.
Cowboys and Aliens was a movie that could've been a lot of fun but I was just bored throughout. At least Paul dano gets beat up in it
What did I just watch?
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A tough loner thief is arrested in 1970s New Mexico. Soon the arresting sheriff, along with the thief and the rich guy from whom the thief thieved are batting aliens. Alliances falter and some hokey drama happens, but, of course you know who wins. With a name like Cowboys and Aliens, I would have thought it would be more campy. The tone was a bit too dark and everything about it was mediocre.
A bit of a shocker. There were cowboys and aliens but no plot or humour. There were some big names acting in it so there was potential which was totally unrealised.
This movie has answered the age old question- Who would win in a fight? Cowboys, or aliens?
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Less than I thought, but still fairly impressive.
