Cowboys & Aliens

Back in the 1960s, there was an episode of Doctor Who that created in an attempt to mix the sci-fi and Western genres together. It was a failure, but they took it to the air anyway. Over the decades, the writing of one of the best BBC sci-fi shows has gotten drastically better. The cross-genre theme works very well in books, as there have been many of these sold in the last few decades. There have also been attempts but low-budget studios to mix the genres together, but these movies tended to get very little press and they were forgotten and set on old VHS tapes in the rental section of C-stores and small video tape rental outlets, unless someone looking for something unusual wanted to take a chance on it. There have been a few successful, steampunk-based movies that use this forumlae, like Wild, Wild West. So here, we have another attempt to bring these together in a movie that uses a title with variation on a cliche’ phrase, and there the movie becomes a cliche’. While this movie has some big names in the cast, production, and direction, it seems the movie itself has no direction, and no logic to it.

Based on the book from Tom Clancy, Patriot Games, this film is a solid hit in the action and intrigue department. We have all the right players to give audiences a ride that they are likely never to forget. You have international players with terrorists from the IRA and members of the CIA who Jack Ryan used to work for. It is evident early on what you are going to see happen in the film, it might even be telegraphed for you but you are not going to care. You are going to want to see how this one ends and will be on the edge of your seat no matter how many time you might watch it. Director Phillip Noyce and screenplay writers have done a good job translating the story to the screen even though several elements were changed from that of the book.

Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford) is working as one of the chief analysts for the CIA and the friend and go to guy for Admiral James Greer (James Earl Jones). During a briefing at the White House, Jack has to present the findings that he and his team uncovered about a hijacking of a yacht off the coast of the United States. The Coast Guard went after the ship when it began behaving suspiciously and discovered its stateroom filled with blood and the people on board covered in the same blood. What Jack and his analysts found out later is that the owner, a senator and friend of the President of the United State, had been laundering money for one of the Columbia drug cartels and a hit was done because the same senator had been skimming the take to the tune of 650 million dollars and change. During the meeting about the scene on the yacht it seemed that Admiral Greer had indigestion and might be a bit fluish. The President and Greer asked Ryan to look into the mater further and report his findings as soon as possible.

The year is 1957, a time of the Cold War, anti-communism hysteria, and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford of Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark , Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) is on another adventure as he is hauled into Area 51 by KBG agents to find an artifact that is stored in a cavernous warehouse. The team is lead by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett of The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring), a leader in paranormal research for her Socialist empire, as she calls it. There is much mistrust going on when Indy and his companion, ‘Mac’ George Michale (Ray Winstone) ask for gunpowder to lead them to the artifact, as it is highly magnetic, and the powder will lead the way. Once they find the box, Agent Spalko opens it only to find the remains of an alien body. This is no ordinary alien. This is the body of one of the aliens found in Roswell, New Mexico ten years before. Indy was working as a specialist on that case then, but ten years later, he is still very much in the dark about what went on there. More mistrust occurs when Mac turns on him for payment by the KGB, as Mac has amassed some gambling debts the Russians are willing to pay off. There is much bullets and blood and mayhem as Indy makes his escape, and he finds himself in a fake suburban town populated with manniquins. The Howdy Doody show is running on the black and white TV, but that little theme song is drowned out by sirens, and Indy has no time to escape what is coming. He dives into a lead-lined refrigerator, and is thrown from the nuclear test blast that annihilates the fake town. Somehow, he manages to make it back home to Connecticut and is teaching again at Marshall College when Dean Charles Stanforth (Jim Broadbent of The Borrowers) approaches Indy about all the chaos he is causing with the government agencies and the board of regents. The FBI has gotten involved and it has caused such an uproar that in order for Indy to keep his job, the Dean was forced to resign.
