Cowboys and Aliens - Movie Review

Review - Cowboys and Aliens

I went to watch this one with my bf, I thought it was going to be really crappy because I'm not into sci fi movies that much, and the concept of Cowboys and Aliens really just sounded laim.

But it ended up being a cool movie with some laughs and dry humour throughout. There's some action, and not only with the aliens, and even the aliens where ok. I just kept reminding myself that if people think there are aliens among us today, why not in the times of cowboys then too?

Harrison Ford never dissapoints in a movie, and I was surprised that he started out as the "bad guy", or actually the really anoying rich guy in town who thinks he's all that.

So the story is about this guy Jake, (who at first does not know who he is) and he has this bracelet on his arm and doesn't know how he got it or what happend. It's revealed that Jake stole a bunch of gold from Mr Dolarhyde and now he wants it back, but before any such things can happen a bunch of people from town are taken by the aliens. Of course no one knows what the heck these things are, but they set out to find out.

Storyline from the web

The Old West.. where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world. 1873. 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. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking 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...
