Cowboys & Aliens

I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect,  when I went in to see this film. I’d seen the trailer, but we know that trailers can lie. I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a good film. Pretty much a western that happens to have aliens in it =D

What I mean by that, is that it’s taken a fairly classic western plot, and stitched aliens into it. I’m not going to go into the details of the plot, but it has a lot of the classic western tropes, along with a good cast. Ford plays an excellent ‘bad’ guy. And they’re not afraid to play with some of the tropes. Not quite subverting them, but playing with it.

Go see it, if you like westerns and sci-fi. If you can’t stand one or other, avoid. The blend is too tight for you.
