Product Description

Cowboys & Aliens fuses rip-snortin' horse opera with some whiz-bang sci-fi, melding dry and austere badlands with slimy, mucusy aliens. Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig, of James Bond fame) wakes up in the midst of sagebrush with a mysterious gadget around his wrist and no idea who he is--but he sure does remember how to take care of the bounty hunters who want to bring him in. His path soon crosses with a ruthless cattle baron named Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford, of Indiana Jones fame), who's not too happy with Lonergan, who got Dolarhyde's son in trouble. But their fracas becomes beside the point when spaceships descend and start lassoing people like cattle. The humans, including a mysterious woman (Olivia Wilde, Tron), a Native American tribe, and some snaggletoothed outlaws, band together to fight off this invasion from another world. The first two-thirds of Cowboys & Aliens is peppy fun, with its tongue-in-cheek Wild West-ness and colorful supporting cast (including Sam Rockwell, Keith Carradine, Paul Dano, and Walton Goggins) and fairly understated CGI. The last third, with the obligatory assault on the alien vessel and a mess of clichés and inconsistencies, deflates a bit, which isn't surprising given that six screenwriters were involved. Director Jon Favreau (Iron Man) does what he can to keep things lively. Fortunately, the good spirits of the first two-thirds will carry most viewers through to the end. --Bret Fetzer

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, yet predictable Dec 4 2011
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I was strangely curious about 'Cowboys & Aliens' when I saw it advertised a few months back. Silly title notwithstanding, I did find it interesting that the filmmakers were able to lure both Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford into the fray as the two main leads. Couple this with Jon Favreau in the director's chair, and I smelled gold, but what I got was pyrite. It's certainly a fun film to watch, but not without a dark side. Daniel Craig stars as Jake Lonergan, a wanted fugitive who awakens in the middle of the Arizona desert with no memory of who he is, where he came from, or what that strange device is around his wrist. Making his way back into town, he soon crosses paths with the son of Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford), a wealthy businessman who has injected commerce into the town of Absolution and gained a powerful influence because of it. Both Dolarhyde's son and Lonergan are taken into custody and prepped for transportation to a federal marshal for incarceration. Dolarhyde returns to Absolution to confront Sheriff Taggart (Keith Carradine) for the release of his son, but before things can escalate further, a strange trio of UFOs attack the town and begin abducting its people. Lonergan manages to escape and notices that the device attached to his wrist has become active. He takes aim at one of the ships and fires a powerful energy bolt that brings down the UFO. Realizing that the device shares the same architecture as the downed UFO, Lonergan begins to slowly flash back and remember the truth: he was abducted by aliens for experimentation.

Dolarhyde and several of the townsfolk form a posse to track down the alien pilot who escaped the downed UFO wreckage.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very likable cowboys meets aliens epic! June 17 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Cowboys and aliens(released July/11)is,to me,a surprisingly good Sci-Fi film.It's reviews were not the greatest and I was anticipating watching a high budget movie with good intentions that went no where fast.But such was not the case,which leads me to mention the first rule of reviewing:Don't believe what others see and write about,believe only what YOU see! Mr.Spielberg had a hand in this epic,which truly IS one,in feel and looks.The cinematography is fabulous as we are taken all over the beautiful outlands of Arizona.But let's not get ahead of ourselves,let's look at the films storyline.
The film begins out in the desert near a town called Absolution.A man(Daniel Craig) wakes up on the desert floor with a wound in his side and no idea how he got there.On his left wrist is an over sized "bracelet" of some type,origin unknown.Some drifters come through and decide he may be a wanted man.Before they can take him into town for the reward the man takes down all three and wanders alone into Absolution.
While there it seems some of the townsfolk know him,specifically the sheriff.It seems this stranger is a wanted felon by the name of Jake Lonergan.After the son of a local prominent cattle rancher,Mr.Dollarhyde(Harrison Ford),accidentally shoots a deputy sheriff,both are taken into custody and put into a wagon for shipment to and a trial at Tuscon.Before they can leave Dollarhyde shows up for his boy but is interrupted by a group of strange lights approaching the town.The lights turn out to be alien craft intent on abducting some of the townspeople.Lonergan's bracelet comes to "life" and he is soon shooting at and downing at least one of the ships.However the alien pilot escapes and roams into town only to be shot and wounded.

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

Cowboy and Aliens arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. Although the movie may disappoint, this video transfer is simply outstanding. Colours are rich and accurately saturated. Skin tones are gorgeous (or grizzled when called on). Contrast is dark but perfectly suited to the genre-mashing action that unfurls, and black levels are inky. Details are also present.

I also appreciate the subtitles are put within the picture frame that has been stretched using anamorphic lens, plus the subtitles are placed where the person was speaking. Subtle improvement. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track splits the heavens and shakes the Earth with an aggressive, commanding and welcome assault on the senses (well, two of them at least) that won't soon be forgotten. All my 9 Wilson Audio WATT/Puppies speakers and my two Velodyne HGS-18 subwoofers were working to their maximum. Voices remain clear and intelligible, and lines are never lost in the madness. This superb soundtrack will simply blow you away (5/5)

MOVIE:

It has an estimated budget of $163 million, and its opening weekend gross was even less than that of "The Smurfs"! And its domestic gross was a disappointly $140 million. It is an interminable bore of a movie, one that may have a technical sheen in high-definition, but lacks any kind of cinematic uniqueness. The script can only be seen more fully on the extended cut of the movie, which adds 16 minutes of dialogue and scenes that explore it a bit more, also making it the superior version. (3/5)

TRIVIA:

Daniel Craig was chosen because of his distinct likeness to Steve McQueen, who starred in the cowboy epic, The Magnificent Seven.
