Cowboys & Aliens
Plot Synopsis: A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region. A posse of cowboys and natives are all that stand in their way.
So Daniel Craig gets abducted by aliens, and escapes, stealing an alien hand blaster gun along the way. As he was probably anal probed he represses his memories, and has short term amnesia. He stumbles into a town, and gets locked up. Harrison Ford learns hes there and gets his boys together to kill him, as he robbed Ford before he got abducted.
So when Ford and his Posse show up so do a bunch of aliens who snatch half the town. Luckily Craig has an alien laser gun thing, so he teams up with Ford to get everyone back, and stop the evil aliens from taking over the world, or whatever their plan was.
This film stinks. It is played way to serious, where it would have been better if it was done more tongue and cheek. I cant tell if Craig is trying to hard to look tough, or if hes constipated. Ford once again proves hes not a good actor, just a guy who got lucky playing good characters. The effects are good. But the one thing that kept bothering me was how Daniel Craig was killing every alien in sight with his one blaster gun, while all the aliens had them. Was he the only living being in the universe that was good with one? Or was he able to kill everyone because he has a license to kill? Wait, that was a different character. Avoid this film like the plague.
Overall 1 out of 5 stars!
