Cowboys & Aliens: A Movie Review

When this movie originally came out I was so skeptical. Cowboys & Aliens just sounded… well… dumb. But I have to admit, after watching it, that it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

When a man (Daniel Craig) wakes up in Arizona not knowing who he is or where he came from, he goes on a search to find out. However, he only finds out he’s a wanted man for robbing Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). Before he can be taken off to jail, the town is attacked by aliens who run off with many of their people. Coming together, the cowboys and Native Americans fight for their home and to get their people back safe.

Although the movie was good, I felt that some parts were a little too silly for what I felt was a serious movie. But, then again, how serious can a movie be that’s about cowboys and aliens? I would highly recommend this to people who enjoy westerns (as long as you can take on the modern twist) and those who love action films.

Grade: B+
