We're riding towards Absolution. You know how far west we are?

Awesome entertainment - Perfect mix of James Bond attitude, special effects and heavy alien presence...
This was one entertaining movie. It had all the elements that have made Hollywood timelessly entertaining for so many decades now - Great western "feel", the gripping new James Bond attitude of Daniel Craig, realistic CG, and heavy alien presence.
The plot requires some suspension of disbelief but hey that's what entertainment is about. If people want "believable" movies they need to watch docu-dramas. If they want to get entertained and want an entertaining experience of "what would something look like if it was real" then this movie is it. It's highly engaging, the story doesn't drag at all, the action is bullet proof, and the concept is 'unique' if nothing else.
High marks to Daniel Craig's "as man as it can get" character. He truly excels in such roles. Harrison Ford did a magnificent job as a gutsy western hero who just won't back down from a fight. The story moves along very well and despite what anyone tells you - MAKE YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT ABOUT THIS MOVIE. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GO WATCH IT. YOU WILL *NOT* BE DISAPPOINTED.
