Alien invasion meets the Wild West
Todd Gilchrist From the title alone there's hope that Cowboys & Aliens is unusual and fresh, but in truth it's just mundane. Half as weird as it should be, it's painfully terrestrial.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Cowboys & Aliens has without any doubt the most cockamamie plot I've witnessed in many a moon.
James Berardinelli Cowboys & Aliens is a mashup of a mediocre Western and a mediocre science fiction story. The resulting film is far better than the sum of its two seemingly disparate parts.
Peter Travers The mash-up of cowboys and aliens doesn't do either camp any favors. How are we supposed to work up a rooting interest when both sides are shooting blanks?
T. Durgin Wow, was there a chance at summer popcorn greatness missed here.
Tomatometer Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford are as dependably appealing as ever, but they're let down by director Jon Favreau's inability to smooth Cowboys & Aliens' jarring tonal shifts.
