If I have one thing to say about this movie, it would be Pure Non-Stop Action with two of Hollywood’s Hottest Actors… Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. This is one of those movies that would have looked epic in 3D but still, 2D was magical!
Daniel Craig stars as Jake Lonergan, a rebel with a heart, who is a stranger with no memory. He has visions of a woman and experiments being done on him in his sleep.
When he rides into Absolution, he has a run-in with the local iron-fisted Colonel’s son which results in both of them being arrested. When the Colonel turns up and demands for his son to be released and for Jake’s head, a whole heap of trouble breaks out when some aliens show up to spoil the party.
As they begin abducting town’s folk, Jake and the Colonel must join forces with the native Americans to take the battle back to the aliens and save those who have been abducted from the clutches of those who aren’t from round these parts.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed Cowboys and Aliens and am looking forward to adding it to my DVD collection when it comes out. Would have been better in 3D but stunning special effects, a stellar cast and great storyline bring the final score up to 9 out of 10.
