COWBOYS AND ALIENS

cowboys and aliens

Concept: A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region. A posse of cowboys and natives are all that stand in their way.

That statement is from IMDB. I feel like stating any more about this barley passable movie would be a waste of my time.

Acting:Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford have the lead roles here. Both do their jobs great. Since they are the only believable characters in the entire movie. When they did shine it was hard to notice from all the other stale actors and explosions mixed with 8th grade CGI.

Cinematography:Nothing noticeable here. It’s an action movie. It’s not trying to take amazing shots. I wasn’t wow’d or impressed once. Hard to believe this was supposed to be a blockbuster.

Direction:Jon Favreau fell pretty hard here. I feel like none of the actors beside Craig and Ford knew what they were supposed to do. The story follows a fairly straightforward plot which I guess is good but it just doesn’t have any depth or complexity or soul to it. I feel like this was pumped out to mind numb movie goers.

Score: Again nothing special. Kind of sub par. Felt it hindered the movie at times. Just very cheesy all around.

Opinion: Not a fan. Won’t be a fan. Won’t recommend this. If it’s on tv and you feel brave go ahead and watch but this film is barley a watchable movie.

Watch-ability:Low

Overall Grade: D
