COWBOYS AND ALIENS
8.30PM, GO! ★
If you’re going to smoosh together two genres for fun and profit, smoosh wisely. The ambitious, yet erratic, 1999 Will Smith vehicle Wild Wild West left a lingering suspicion the classic western and SFX- driven science fiction are not so compatible. This is conclusive proof open prairies and outer space don’t mix. Cowboys & Aliens is such a debacle no one will dare try the combo again. Daniel Craig plays an ex- outlaw who has declared war on the slimy space monsters that killed his wife for organharvesting purposes. He is joined by Harrison Ford as a land baron who recently lost his son ( Paul Dano) in similar circumstances.
