Cowboys & Aliens: Movie Review

Another review coming at you. I’m quite picky about movies, at least ones that I’m interested in, so this one will be no different. At least it won’t be as long as the Harry Potter one =).

So I give this movie a 4 out of 5.

I know it’s gotten some bad reviews, and honestly, I can see why. But it was a very entertaining movie, so I have to say it’s a must see.

There were some dumb parts. For instance, the aliens have a bracelet thing that can explode shit (which Daniel Craig comes equipped with). But apparently when cowboys kill aliens, they can’t pull off the bracelets off the aliens and use those. And some inconsistencies with the fighting include the fact that at one time, a pistol can blow an aliens head off, and other times, a guy can be shooting at the alien 10 times, but the alien still rapes him. And by rape, I mean kill. Also, the aliens seem to have massive rocket launcher type guns. The cowboys just don’t have the sense to use those after they kill the alien. Oh well, cowboys still win. Oops, should I have called spoiler alert on that one?

I must say, the story line is pretty creative. I enjoyed the flashbacks of the main character (Daniel Craig). Those were well done and interesting.

One big flaw, in my opinion, is the lack of finding out what the aliens need the gold for. Watch the movie to find out what I’m talking about here. Or I can just explain it now…the aliens are on earth to mine for gold. Apparently it is as valuable to them as it is to humans. But why they need it…nobody knows. We never find out. Sigh. Sequel? I think not…

Anyway, the movie is alright. Lots of action, good story. Worth seeing in my opinion as long as you don’t get hung up on the details!

Happy Watching!
