12A - 118mins-/ sci fi/action thriller 17 August 2011
Finally, my prayers to the Hollywood-top dogs for a little originality in the form of Cowboys & aliens, a science fiction thriller were answered (which in even more makes me an optimism due to one of my favorite genres of choice). Yes, it is based on a graphic novel and Yes technology in the Wild West was implemented before, but this is not a sequel/prequel, and as a concept is very fresh.
Daniel Craig plays Jake, a cowboy, in the middle of nowhere with no memory awakes, who he is, where he was or how he got there. In fact, the only clue that gives it is strange metallic bracelet, that he not able, his arm to escape. After his way into the next town is he soon makes known with the locals and as a dangerous and wanted man to several crimes including the theft of gold from local rancher guilty Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). After have been arrested and prepared for the transport of alien spaceships appear nowhere and start to tear people away and to blow up the surrounding countryside. Jakes bracelet in a weapon, and he is able to removed foreigners.
That now forced to work together, to the people who were kidnapped by them save Jake, Woodrow team with the other survivors from the city and on the way to find out, as is the common enemy stop.
The biggest emotion I felt when the consider this was one of indifference, particularly on the plot and the structure of the film. Favreau could not more clearly with be hinted at his intentions for the film, as the title. Cowboys & aliens connects the two separate worlds of the Wild West gun Slinger, bandits and Indians with the technological alien species, what to not more than a series of clashes between the two, the in good, gives a final confrontation between the two. Where is the interest of the public with this concept, which can only be taken?
The story never developed and had just the characters with horses, that you cowboy things remains a two-dimensionally as the drawings that they once were. This is despite the efforts of Ford and Craig in which me draw. The most impressive part is that for other characters (Jones and bond) as they are known, are the two still in the position that you forget this fact and make the characters of their own, even if Ford cowboy hat creates an Indiana-esque.
This is a perfect example of the money men of the big studios support the boncept as the actual story. I am sure, as most of you first the film sounds like a film with promise but come at the end, the I do not feel that I had taken more rather guided adventure from scene to scene as a means to an end. Additionally, the CGI could have been better when considering other films, which already is published this year and had the budget, the Cowboys & aliens, to play, but instead they also not to impress the.
I can not stress, I was as disappointed with this. Write in the face of the abundance of talent in the Department (ORCI, Kurtzman, Lindelof etc. man, children of men think Star Trek, iron, lost (TV)) for this film there was also behind the, which should have it. Turns out, originality was possibly not what was I finally look as!
