1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Daniel Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). It's a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it has before experienced when the town is attacked by flying vehicles that descend from the sky with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights, abducting the townsfolk one by one.
Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he's been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponentstownsfolk, Dolarhyde, outlaws and Apache warriorsall in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they prepare for an epic showdown for survival.
interesting concept, but it just doesn't come together well.
though i expected this to be lame, it was surprisingly good.
good action film for everybody
