My work sees and hears a lot of stupid comments. Typically when Cowboys & Aliens was released a lot of people were saying "sounds stupid" and "as if". These being the same people who have no hesitation watching Fast and the Furious, I Am Number Four and Mr Poppers Penguins. Personally... the title alone excited the shit out of me. It's a brilliant concept. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, its exactly as the title suggests... Aliens invade the wild west. This aint no "Wild Wild West" bullshit either and while the premise is pure science fiction, the story is taken seriously. Adding to the believability is the genius casting of Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in the lead roles. Their names bring credibility and experience to the story. These characters are serious and their situation is serious (to them) and so the movie comes across with a real authenticity (imo). With Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard in the producer's chairs, Cowboys & Aliens was destined to be a great ride before it was even made. The FX are cool and the action is awesome. We buy into aliens invading modern cities in movies, so why not the wild west? So much fun!
