Cowboys & Aliens (2011)

Director: Jon Favreau. Cast: Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Keith Carradine, Paul Dano. 119 min. Rated PG-13. Action/Sci-fi.

So James Bond and Indiana Jones join forces in an action flick that is a gritty Clint Eastwood western meets Independence Day and Alien, with a touch of Men in Black. In other words, it's a hodgepodge. This is the first time I notice Harrison Ford being overshadowed by a co-star, as Craig's charismatic presence makes one delighted (again) that he was chosen as the new Bond. Actually, Ford's role could have been played by anybody, so was his presence here a calculated decision, or is he just getting too old? Entertaining throughout, but nothing to be taken seriously.
