Rate this:
The Old West ... where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world. 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde. It's a town that lives in fear.

I like westerns, Daniel Craig & Harrison Ford. I expected to love this movie. I didn't. Seemed pretty hokey to me. I didn't understand where Craig's character got the weapon.

Nice mashup movie, but average.

Somewhat imaginative, bizarre, moderately amusing way to pass an hour and some change you had to be during something during. A person has a certain amount of time between birth and dying and something has to be done during it. Watching this movie is one of the things a person might choose to do as an alternative to doing something else.

Enjoyable mixed blend of two genres, that of science fiction and western. Has it's fair share of action moments and one must admit, this is a different type of movie altogether. Very good when you consider that A. Some people proclaimed westerns as a dead genre, and B.having something unique can only be a positive in terms of filmmaking. I liked Harrison Ford in this one as he comes off as the crusty outlaw and Daniel Craig as the central hero is equally effective in the role of the hero. The usual CGI effects are to be expected, but it doesnt deter from this being a watchable movie.

Right up there with Raiders of the Lost Ark; classic western elements and funny!

An extremely LAME mash-up of the good western and good alien movies of the past period.Harrison Ford acted like he was severely constipated,and Daniel Craig acted like his anus was burning and itching like HELL throughout this shockingly cheap looking thrill at best period.I don't blame Steven Spielberg for not wasting tons of $ on this extremely cheesy celluloid,because he knows that this film is not worth it as well as the fact that movies don't make as much $ as they used to (and rightfully so) period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Give this points for truth in advertising. Too bad it's not very good.

The idea is definitely ambitious and I was really hoping that it would work.
