Cowboys & Aliens, which crosses genres with the American Western element of cowboys and the science-fiction element of extraterrestrials, has an "inherently comic" title and premise. At the San Diego Comic-Con International in July , director Jon Favreau hosted a presentation and was accompanied by the film's primary cast members, including. Cowboys & Aliens Action & adventure Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford star in this action-packed sci-fi western from the director of Iron Man (Jon Favreau) that critics call "wickedly original, unlike. An amnesiac gunslinger is a frontier town's only hope against extraterrestrial invaders. Cowboys and Aliens Lyrics: Hey do you see that? / Yeah I see that over there, what is that / Over there in the distance, over the mountain range / Like a flying, flying disc / looks like a light. A furious PvP Multiplayer brawl in VR set in the Saloon-iverse of Cowbots and Aliens. Free movement, deadly gunplay, multiple competitive modes and a custom networked physics system that lets you use EVERYTHING as a weapon makes for an immensely satisfying VR ruckus! Includes intensely fun single player AI to play against as well. The classic Western movie gets mashed with the alien invasion flick to create Cowboys & Aliens -- a new twist on two popular movie genres. IGN's YouTube is j.
But then the pacing of the movie becomes erratic, some things just don't add to the storyline, or add up - Upside down riverboat episode anyone? Or the dog that miraculously survives an alien encounter?
Time is spent developing depth to characters that's frankly not needed, and its to the detriment of pacing - I don't want a dose of sentiment or character introspection when watching a movie called "Cowboys and Aliens", let's leave that to "True Grit" or "Unforgiven" or insert your own favourite gritty and deep cowboy movie here.
Almost as overcompensation for the emotional mawkishness, you are then occasionally entertained with scenes of quite bloody violence, prolonged in the finale.
Overall its not quite 'balanced', and frankly you're left feeling there should be more, by the end. But Daniel Craig's great in character, looks quite fetching in chaps, and has a waist that's trimmer than any of his leading ladies.
Cowboys and Aliens kind of does what it says on the tin. The opportunity to play a straight western and then have a big alien plot twist is missed as the film simply plays to its title.
Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford lead a posse against an alien force who can't stand the heat despite their suprior fire power.
It's an interesting film which asks lots of questions and goes I'm the right direction but overall I felt it could have been done better.
One person found this helpful. With cutting edge special effects and one-of-a-kind story. Stewart, Jon Favreau, K.
While not exactly as intelligently topical as Michael Crichton's 'Westworld' or amusingly subtle as Joss Whedon's 'Serenity,' Jon Favreau's action flick brings a good deal of engaging entertainment and exciting spectacle to the proceedings.
It might not please every viewer out there, but it satisfies the wide-eyed fantasies of long-time devoted followers of both genres or at least, of this particular viewer.
Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist.
It's a town that lives in fear. Screaming down with breath-taking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he's been, he realises he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force.
With the help of the elusive traveller Ella, he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents-townsfolk, Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors-all in danger of annihilation.
United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival. The films genre-mashup is quite overt and in your face, which could be seen as a bit of a drawback because it definitely shows a lack of finesse.
It commences with a western theme and setting, suddenly switching to an alien invasion storyline that runs through the usual obstacle course.
The change is surprisingly not as jarring as one would reasonably expect, although it takes some time to find its proper footing afterwards. The glue holding the marriage together is Jon Favreau's direction infused with several stylish nods to the archetypes and thematic of both styles, ranging again from explicit to sly.
After a quickly determined fight with three bounty hunters, a clue into his past is revealed which nicely sets off that whole morally-ambiguous protagonist feel we love in a good 'ole shoot 'em up horse opera.
It's not a complete loss, however, since it turns out also makes a great anti-hero gunslinger. This is probably the best performance for Ganile Craig of a tough as nails and ill-tempered loner since Clint Eastwood's own iconic outlaw graced the screen, but to be perfectly honest, I wish it were seen in something far better than this, not that Jon Favreau's film isn't any fun though it is somewhat weighed down at the beginning of the second act.
When the aliens finally attack the town, allowing Daniel Craig to discover his charm bracelet is actually a futuristic handgun, the thrill of sci-fi elements mixes well with the western ideal, but afterwards, things quickly slow down.
The outsider is set on his quest to free those kidnapped, as well as to obviously absolve past sins, in typical frontier justice style. Harrison Ford is the most formidable as wealthy cattle rancher Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde.
Best surprise is Nat Colorado [Adam Beach] as Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde's Native American hired hand, bringing a welcome emotional subplot to an otherwise straightforward tale.
Sadly, that aspect to the script can only be seen fully on the extended cut of the film, which you will see on this Blu-ray disc, which adds 16 minutes of dialogue and scenes that explore it a bit more, also making it the superior version.
What was seen theatrically surprisingly eliminates more sequences with the Native Americans doing a war dance and Nat Colorado [Adam Beach] is feeling disconnected from his people, like he doesn't belong in either world.
It's a necessary component that makes a later heartfelt scene more powerful. Fiddler Rest of cast listed alphabetically: Robert Lee Bell Sea Captain uncredited Maria Bethke Polka Dancer uncredited Todd Bethke Polka Dancer uncredited Michael J.

Ford Jane Galli They camp inside it; during the night the alien kills Meacham, who sacrifices himself to save Emmett, Taggart's grandson.
By morning, most of the posse has deserted, and Jake's former gang attacks the rest. Jake, who stole the gang's loot after their last heist, attempts to retake control but is foiled.
The aliens attack again and abduct Ella. Jake jumps aboard the ship and attacks the alien pilot, causing the ship to crash in a river. The pilot survives the crash and attacks Ella, fatally wounding her, before Jake kills it with his wrist-blaster.
The remaining posse is captured by Chiricahua Apache Native Americans , who blame them for the alien attacks. After Ella's corpse is dumped on a fire by a Chiricahua warrior, she is resurrected and emerges from the fire.
Ella reveals herself to be from another alien race, who had traveled to Earth to help resist the invaders after they destroyed her home world. The aliens - who are mining gold and abducting people to conduct experiments on them - have superior weaponry and are far stronger and more durable than humans; only Jake's wrist weapon or a well-aimed round from a rifle can kill them with a single shot.
Ella tells them that the previous attackers were just scouts. She also claims Jake holds the secret to the aliens' whereabouts and argues that they must defeat the aliens before the invaders exterminate all life on Earth.
After taking medicine offered by the Apaches' medicine man , Jake's memory returns. He recalls watching Alice get vivisected and euthanized ; he escaped by stealing the bracelet encasing his wrist.
He also remembers the location of the aliens' base of operations: their landed mother ship. Armed with this knowledge, they plan to attack the alien base.
Jake leaves to persuade his old gang to join the fight while Dolarhyde takes command of the original group and the Apaches. After the combined groups maneuver the aliens into a ground battle, Jake and Ella board the ship and free the captives, but Jake is captured.
Dolarhyde rescues him, and both men escape from the ship after killing the alien responsible for Alice's death.
The ship takes off as the remaining aliens flee Earth, but Ella stays on board to end the threat: she sacrifices herself by entering the ship's core and turning Jake's wrist weapon into a bomb; it detonates, obliterating the ship.
With the aliens gone, the rescued townsfolk begin remembering their pasts. Still a wanted man, Jake chooses to leave; the sheriff and Dolarhyde decide to claim he was killed in the invasion.
The citizens intend to rebuild their town. The project began development in , when Universal Pictures and DreamWorks bought film rights to a concept pitched by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg , former president at Malibu Comics , which he described as a graphic novel in development.
Limpet with Jim Carrey. Favreau investigated the project,  and in September , he joined as director.
In April , Harrison Ford was cast alongside Craig. The director compared Ford, in particular, with John Wayne in having "a sense of history" with the actor and the role.
Writer Alex Kurtzman said, "We needed to make sure that—no pun intended—we tipped a hat to iconography of Harrison Ford and also presented the audience with a very different version.
Olivia Wilde was cast in one of the lead roles, and Favreau called Wilde's character the key to the film. The character was described as a large Mexican in the original script,  but when Favreau and the writers learned of Rockwell's interest in the film, they reconceived and expanded the role.
When asked about how the film was developing, Rosenberg stated, "It's incredible. Sometimes it's like seeing exactly what was going through my head when I first had that spark in my head as a kid.
Jon Favreau's bringing his own talent and vision with the adaptation, but at the same time it remains true to what I was really trying to get at in the original story.
Steven Spielberg , one of the film's executive producers, visited the director and the writers during pre-production to look over the script and the artwork.
He provided Favreau with a collection of classic Western films. In the film's period as a developing project under several studios, different versions of the screenplay were drafted by numerous screenwriters, beginning with Steve Oedekerk.
Orci said, "The first draft was very kind of jokey and broad and then it went very serious. You kind of swing back and forth between the two extremes and the tone until you find the exact right point where a Western and a sci-fi movie can really shake hands without it seeming unnatural.
Orci also said, "The comic has the themes of enemies uniting to fight a common enemy and has the setting of that specific time period, so we kept the inspiration from all of that.
In terms of the specifics of the story and who these characters are, we wanted the audience to be surprised and to not feel like they've already seen everything if they were fans of the comic.
So, while the themes and the setting and many of the elements are a great inspiration, the story is completely adapted and translated for live action.
I'm rooting for the Indians, in this case. Christian C Super Reviewer. Mar 29, Things do not improve once he gets back to town as Percy Dolarhyde Paul Dano shoots up the place, accidentally hitting a deputy.
Not only does Sheriff Taggart Keith Carradine take Percy into custody but also Jake who it turns out is wanted for everything shy of cow tipping.
And just as Percy's father Harrison Ford shows up for a quiet conference, the light show starts. If one wanted to point out the beginning of the end of Hollywood, it would be when B movies began to be made with A budgets.
For further proof that the movie world has gone to the dogs, there is Alex Cox who has to pass the hat around on Kickstarter to get his cool-sounding adaptation of "Bill, the Galactic Hero" made.
By contrast, the Doctor Who episode "A Town Called Mercy," a jelly baby western, nails it, along with pointed insights into the possibility of redemption.
It does not help the banal story and slack pacing that Daniel Craig is miscast, his brooding intensity doing little for a movie so desperately in need of a sense of humor.
But kudos to whoever cast seasoned pros Clancy Brown and Keith Carradine. And at least Harrison Ford shows signs of life, for a change. Walter M Super Reviewer.
Oct 24, Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig? Sounds like a winner. The direction is top notch, but if you boil this dirty water of a film, you can easily the stain is the writing.
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtman have never written a script that is a grand slam. While their ideas have "moments," the overall final product leaves much to be desired.
Despite the great cast and director, Cowboys and Aliens dies a slow death at the hands of the weak script. Bryan D Super Reviewer. See all Audience reviews.
