Cowboys and Aliens is a fascinating, action-orientated tale that successfully merges two genres to create an enjoyable movie-going experience. The film is a terrific mixture of suspense, mystery, action, and other elements that woo movie lovers. The movie stars Daniel Craig (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Harrison Ford (Morning Glory), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), and Sam Rockwell (Iron Man 2). It’s directed by Jon Farveau (Iron Man 1&2).

Cowboy & Aliens quickly whisks the audience into yesteryear as it is set in 1873.

It’s a non-stop wild west experience that embeds a number of elements within the film that vastly enhance the enjoyment of the movie.
