Cowboys & Aliens


In 1873, Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) wanders into a small Arizona town, unable to remember what he’s been throughā€¦ and then aliens attack. There’s nothing wrong with the visual effects or the cast in this spectacular summer blockbuster; Craig is even trying to channel his inner Clint Eastwood. But one has to ask oneself why a movie with a setup this silly can’t have a lighter touch. It’s slick, yes, but also heavy-handed and empty. The clashes between the Old West and the superior alien technology are fun at first, but the rest of the story is routine.

2011-U.S. 118 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Jon Favreau. Graphic Novel: Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. Cast: Daniel Craig (Jake Lonergan), Harrison Ford (Woodrow Dolarhyde), Olivia Wilde (Ella Swenson), Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, Paul Danoā€¦ Keith Carradine. Cameo: Liev Schreiber.Ā 

Trivia: Also available in a 135 min. version. Robert Downey, Jr. was allegedly considered for a role.
