in the old west, Jake awakened in the desert injured, with no memory, n having a strange metal attached on his wrist. he wandered into the town n was identify as a wanted outlaw. he was detained by the sheriff n met with Colonel Dolarhyde, a rich n powerful cattleman. he claimed that Jake stole his gold. before he was able to lay his hand on Jake, spaceships were attacking the town. Jake managed to shoot down one of the ships with the strange metal attached on his wrist. together they set out to tract the alien, looking for the reasons aliens were attacking n abducting humans.
the film started out being mysterious. as much as Jake, we wanted to know his background. i couldn't quite hide my disappointment when he turned out to be an outlaw, but the impact of the character Daniel Craig was able to bring out of Jake was definitely impressive. it easily had us siding him back as he tried to figure out the situation while performing all the necessary heroic acts at the same time. not to mention the visual effect of the film being absolutely captivating! however, for its bold title, putting together 2 completely unrelated items, was slightly disappointing. the connection failed to mean something concrete nor smart, only plain.
