The year is 1873. The setting: America’s Wild West. Adam Beach’s latest flick, Cowboys & Aliens is an interesting take on the whole alien invasion themes of many futuristic sci-fi flicks. Though I must admit, when I first viewed the previews for it, my initial reaction was that it makes no sense to have an alien movie set in the past. However, it is a time change that definitely works here.

The story is about a man, Jake Loner an (played by Daniel Craig), who awakes in the middle of nowhere with no memory of how he got there or why there is a metal bracelet around his wrist. When so-called demons arrive in town at snatch random town folks, their kin rally a posse up for a search and rescue.

Nat Colorado is the character played by Adam Beach (Saulteaux). Nat is the pseudo-adopted son/employee of Harrison Ford’s character, Woodrow Dolarhyde. Nat, who idolizes Dolarhyde and has dreamed of riding into battle with the ex-war hero, helps the gang of cowboys gain the help of the local tribe through interpretation. Though it is a role supporting the Dolarhyde character, Adam Beach pulls it off well.

Up next for the actor is a thriller titled September Runs Red.
