Iron Man fame Jon Favreau is back with his latest venture Cowboys and Aliens. The Hollywood director has nicely blended the two genres like Western and Alien/Sci-Fi genres in the movie. It has two treats in one for this summer and Daniel Craig is the showman.

Cowboys and Aliens is an action-packed movie and the chemistry among Wilde, Craig and Ford is the major attraction of the film. The solid 3-D effects, smooth-flowing script written by nine writers and fantastic stunts are its other highlights. Its underderlying theme is that although the inhabitants of Earth may have our inter-species differences, we will come together when presented with a common threat.

In 1873, a spaceship arrives in Arizona  for an unknown purpose. Stranger outlaw (Daniel Craig) wakes up in the desert with no memory and saunters onto Main Street. He meets cranky cattle barron Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford) and his bully son (Paul Dano). The stranger discovers that he is a wanted thief named Lonergan when thar lights arrive in the sky. Then he rounds up a team of Doc (Sam Rockwell), Meachum the preacher (Clancy Brown), Native American Nat (Adam Beach) and beautiful Ella (Olivia Wilde) to stave off the invading force in an old-time Wild West standoff.
