Saw this tonight, it was entertaining but really should of been better then it was. I'd agree with the grade of C plus. Still fun for my inner child to see Indiana Jones & James Bond team up to fight aliens.

I just saw this film and I loved it.  The cowboy part was lots of fun and the aliens were reasonably cool.  I thought there were some really good characters.  Ford and Craig were terrific.  It was a fine summer movie.

I didn't see any glaring plot holes.  There was one plot development which was a little startling at first, but once it was explained it seemed natural.

And I loved the CGI hummingbird.

Just got out of this. Really enjoyed it as did all the people who were with me. I agree with karas. A fine summer movie.

Saw it on Friday,and loved it!.Craig & Ford are a great pair and as for Wilde,she played her part appropriatly.I give C&A a 7.5-8 out of 10.The trailer for Battleship is attached to C&A,and my god it looks horrible,I mean Battlefield Earth/Independence Day horrible.Ridley Scott has lost his mind.

you see but most of us want more than silly blowing things up when we go to the movies now pek and laz.  A silly summer movie is not nearly as good as thor, or iron man which has heart and makes you think.  For a better silly summer movie though see any of the superhero movies or the harry potter movie (which actually had heart and point).  THOSE are the movies that deserve a's and b's a silly summer movie does not.  If you like those movies then fine, but if I am going to spend 10 bucks on a movie I want more than silly special effects.  I find it interesting that you thought the first part was slow...when that was the part that had character development and was interesting...

Zalder, it wasn't a silly summer mov ie in the same way that, say, Transformers was.  I thought that Cowboys and Aliens had lots of heart.  The journey that Ford's character took was quite touching (and slighty reminicent of they journey his character took in Blade Runner).  He changed and grew as a person and I think the people of Absolution will have better lives because of it.

And he did that during the whole movie, not just the first part.  I think some people were too distracted by the special effects to realize how much character development was going on in the second half of the movie.
