Movie Review for Cowboys & Aliens

Daniel Craig changes out of his business suits for his James Bond character and puts on a cowboy hat for a wild ride in the recent movie Cowboys & Aliens.

Craig's character is Jake Lonergan who is an outlaw with amnesia due to contact with the aliens. Along for the ride is Harrison Ford who plays Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde. Your typical powerful, rich cattleman who has the town of Absolution in his back pocket.

Then there is beautiful Ella Swenson, played by Olivia Wide; as the mysterious traveler. Doc, the saloon owner is played by Sam Rockwell.

Now, this blogger never saw or read the comic that this movie is based off of. But I had heard of it and was waiting with baited breath for it to come out. I was not disappointed. For me, it was interesting to see Ford play a bad guy. But you know movie story lines, he moves from bad guy to good guy over the course of the film.

The creatures (aliens) were referred to as "Demons" by the town folk and they were done very nice - scary looking and great CGI work.

I like this movie and I will be looking forward to getting this on DVD when it comes out.
