  • It looks slick, pricey and starry – Indiana Jones teams up with James Bond for a gunfight with space demons. But even Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig can't save a movie that's all concept, no content. show more

  • Neither fish nor fowl (nor extraterrestrial), and that's a problem. Craig, handsomely craggy, plays it straight, and like Eastwood's Man With No Name, he doesn't have much to say. show more

  • Cowboys versus aliens is a concept that may make you smile in anticipation, but wipe that smile off your face before buying your ticket. show more
