Cowboys and Aliens

4 out of 5 stars.  Pleasing mix of action, special effects and character driven story - enough so that those girls that get dragged along with their guys might be pleasantly surprised.  Daniel Craig reminds me of a beefed up Ed Harris with less to say and fewer movies to associate him with making him good for the man of mystery in the old west with memory loss - a good thing - otherwise he might know why there was a laser cannon strapped to his wrist.  Harrison Ford is a mean old war veteran turned business man who's son is abducted from the town along with a handful others.

Obviously, they go and get em!  It's an action flick.  It plays out with few surprises but I was entertained just the same.
