I did not have high hopes for this movie, given its name, but I was pleasantly surprised. The first 45 minutes or so were really good at setting up the rest of the movie. It really established a campy Western feel, and Daniel Craig was the perfect, rough-around-the-edges, lonely cowboy. He's pretty damn rugged and sexy.
Unfortunately, the movie kind of lost me once the aliens came around. I was much more interested in the relationships between the human characters than the battle to destroy the aliens. It may have been because I was really tired, but I just kind of checked out. The cast is great, though. This is worth seeing if you want some action, sexy people, and witty Western stuff. It's a pretty well-crafted movie.
