Cowboys & Aliens

cowboys-and-aliens-new-posterLast night, I watched Cowboys & Aliens starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde released in 2011.

The film follows a group of cowboys mining gold in the wild west who encounter mischievous creatures that they first considered to be demons even if for a joke.

Jake (Daniel Craig) wakes up in the deserted land with a weird wrist bracelet like device whose purpose he doesn’t know and seems to not remember how he got it on him in the first place. He gets to the nearest town depending on the gold resources and strange things start to happen from the first night.

Unknown creatures attack the village with unknown flying mechanism and light weapon. Now they have to find why they are here, what they want and most importantly how to make them go away.

The overall storyline was pretty easy to predict, though the performance of the actors were marvelous despite the western and science-fiction angle sucked a little bit. Maybe not little bit, big.

I wouldn’t vouch for the film’s greatness. But if you’d like to see a bunch of cool actors (and actresses) in a single film, definitely go and watch it.
