Cowboys And Aliens Movie Review

Updated on December 26, 2011

2011 may be a A Year For The Alien. Thes alien movies include I Am Number Four, Battle Los Angeles, The Thing, The Darkest Hour and last but not the last, Cowboys and Aliens. Cowboys and Aliens is strange. Why? If the Army in the 21st century can't handle alien attacks, what would the cowboys of the west do?

Cowboys and Aliens is a 2011 science fiction film directed by Jon Favreau. The story begins with an injured cowboy(Daniel Craig) with a strange band attached to his wrist. Three men attempted to rob him but he easily killed them, taking all their possessions. He traveled to a town where his wounds were treated. It was revealed that this cowboy is none other than a wanted outlaw named Jake Lonergan.

Alien ships attacked the town and abducted several people using strange wire or strands. The attack ended when Jake used the strange band on his wrist to shoot down an alien ship. The cowboys detected some tracks that most probably are from the crashed ship.They journeyed to find the alien. Due to clash of contradictions, the cowboy group decided to split into two subgroups. The Chiricahua Apaches captured some of them and blamed them for the evil that was unleashed. Both the Apaches and the cowboys don't have enough firepower to fight the aliens so they decided to join forces.

The aliens assume that humans are like insects with no brains. They have underestimated us, the most intelligent species on Earth. Jake and the cowboys and Apaches planned to attack the main base, which is actually a space ship.

The horde of aliens, having the same weapon as the gauntlet on Jakes's wrist, aren't good at aiming and shooting. Jake easily killed all of them by himself.

Happy ending for an alien movie? Yes for the town because it is already rebuilding and they have many many Gold! But not for Jake. He lost his wife. He'll never bring her back. Jack just left the town never to return. Sorry Jake.

The visual effects of the film would be praised for bringing in the live action aliens. The action scenes were thrilling but the plot has slow pacing. This film has a unique theme which looks like a meeting of the worlds of Indiana Jones, Aliens,Predators and James Bond a bit of E.T? The aliens look like a viscious version of the alien E.T. The film's rating in Rotten Tomatoes is not so good. The audience has only given a 51% rating. Not good for an alien movie. But Cowboys and Aliens is a lot better than the 2010 movie Skyline which only had a 19% audience rating. Cowboys and Aliens is fun to watch if you have Dolby Digital 5.1 surround audio system that brings more enjoyment. Watch out for Cowboys and Aliens in Blu-Ray.

      I am Number Four and Cowboys and Aliens are two movies of a very large group of psychological front loading. Notice the format: An alien race invades. A friendly alien force comes to help the humans, and drives them out, then stays (dies in C&A, however).

      Others like this: Transformers and The Owls of Gha'houl. Note that in the Owls movie, it ends with a statement like, "And they remained and set up order for a new world."

      I believe this is the plan of the satanist-demon team. They will come to the world in two teams to perform a show as "bad cop" / "good cop". Once the "bad" demons are ousted, the "good" demons will remain to set up the New World Order of the antichrist.
