Cowboys & Aliens

- cowboy Daniel Craig

This week's movie rental was Cowboys & Aliens ...

a 2011 American-Canadian science fiction Western film directed by Jon Favreau and starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde. The film is based on the 2006 graphic novel of the same name created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. The main plot revolves around an amnesiac outlaw (Craig), a wealthy cattleman (Ford), and a mysterious traveler (Wilde) who must ally to save a group of townspeople abducted by aliens.

As well as Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford, there are a couple of other actors I like in the film ... Clancy Brown plays a preacher and doctor, he of Sleepy Hollow and Earth 2 and Highlander fame :) ... and Keith Carradine plays the town sherrif, he of I'm Easy ...

The film was ok, I guess, a kind of a novelty genre mashup. I probably didn't like it as much as the average person would have - there was a little too much of 'guys having fun being manly' for me to really appreciate it ;) but Richard Roeper really liked it and gave it a B+ in his video review ...

And a trailer ...
