Box Office
Todd Gilchrist quote iconFrom 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.
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconCowboys & Aliens has without any doubt the most cockamamie plot I've witnessed in many a moon.
15
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconCowboys & 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.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe 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 quote iconWow, was there a chance at summer popcorn greatness missed here.

Tomatometer quote iconDaniel 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.
