Cowboys and Aliens - 星際飆客

Cowboys and Aliens (星際飆客) is an 2011 film. The movie stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde. Directed by Jon Favreau and released along with the other summer blockbusters.

Daniel Criag wakes up in the middle of the desert and doesn't remember who he is, but he can kick some @$$. He take out 2 scalpers and heads into town for a drink. There, he gets into a fight and is thrown into jail. That night, a bunch of towns folk are captured by strange flying things. Released, Craig shoots one of them down with something connected to his arm. Slowly but surely, he starts to regain his memory and the towns folk want to get their loved ones back. Among those taken is the local warlord's son. Together, they gather up a troupe to go and take out the aliens and get their loved ones back.

The movie moved quite slow in the beginning and the back story on Craig's character was slow to develop. However, when all the character development was done, the payoff with the action wasn't there. The fight between the humans and aliens should have been really one sided based on the aliens powers, but the humans come up with some "team" moves yo kill them. Not very believable and it slowly lose credibility with me. In all, it wasn't a good nor bad movie. Enjoyable to watch just once. No repeat viewing necessary.
