    All I can say is...

    They made good sense of bringing Aliens into a Western...LOL

    It actually made sense.

    This is Great FAMILY fun.

    The aliens are scary but, there's nothing here that you wouldn't bring your whole family to see.

    2 Thumbs UP.

    Sincerely,


    The DK

    This is probably the stupidest name for a movie that I have heard in a long time. But the title really means what it says, the film is about cowboys fighting aliens and that is pretty stupid as well. The film is very fast paced and there is absolutely no time to stop and think how ridiculous the whole idea is. So while you are watching the film, you are pretty entertained but as soon as you leave the theater you realise that the film is incredibly dumb, at least that was my experience with this film. Overall, i do not recommend seeing the film in the theaters, i think it is a good movie to rent.

    I had seen the trailer at the theater a while back and thought that I had vowed not to see the movie because I thought, how absurd to mix cowboy westerns with Aliens – it will never work… unless it’s a spoof. I don’t know what I was thinking; maybe I did think it would be a spoof but it wasn’t. It was a serious western with aliens and get this: It Has Indians Too! The aliens were taking all kinds of people in nearby Arizona. They took this bad guy (actor Daniel Craig) but he escaped with a secret weapon and lost memory. He meet’s up with Harrison Ford and together they go to retrieve the hostages but not without making a pact with the Indians. It turned out that it wasn’t the spoof I had been expecting but I liked it anyway and glad I went to see it. That’s the funniest part – an Alien Western! Who would have thunk it?

    I liked this film and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was very interesting and it was casted very well. Daniel Craig was very believable and super sexy, that man is a God. I think that the story is unique and fresh and I like that the director mixed two very different genres: Western and Sci-Fi. One can tell that the film had a huge budget and the special effects and the explosions were pretty great and impressive. Olivia Wilde was good in this film, i do not think she is very believable as a Western character but she did a good job with her role anyway. Overall, I think it is a good summer film that is full of action and awesome special effects.

    I still do not understand why this film has such a ridiculous title. I was really doubtful about this film mainly because of the title, but it was actually pretty good and i had a good time watching it. It is one of those summer films that are fun to watch and it does not involve thinking, basically it is pure entertainment. The film looks great visually and it has great special effects and action scenes. The movie also has a very impressive cast that consists of Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde and they all do a really good job with their roles. Daniel Craig just gets better looking with age and he is fine in this film.

    I think that the film is really great and i recommend seeing it in the theaters. at first i was not sure if I should go see a movie called “Cowboys and Alliens”, you have to admit that the name sounds pretty stupid, but i am glad I did see it. First of all, the performances in the film were absolutely great and i think the film was
    casted perfectly. Daniel Craig fits the role perfectly and he is even hotter than he was before, I did not know that was possible. I think it is a great summer film and I think that anybody will have a blast watching it.

    Cowboys & Aliens is a ridiculous idea that shouldn't work, and yet, leave it to Jon Favreau to create a movie that mashes both westerns and sci-fi into a fun time. What makes this as good as it is is that everyone takes things seriously. No one looks like they're making something absolutely preposterous, and that believability goes a long way.

    The film starts off with a bang, with Daniel Craig's character waking up not remembering his name or who he is. No sooner does he find out when the aliens show up, start wreaking havoc and kidnapping people. Craig's lone stranger teams up with craggy old landowner, the beauty with a gun, and the goofy shop owner to get everybody back. No Western cliche is left unturned, but that helps, because having these familiar characters makes the craziness that ensues a lot easier to take.

    Favreau and his cadre of writers have created a movie that mixes the mythology of the West with spaceships and creepy invaders. The actors all keep it real, and are all very good (special props to Sam Rockwell). Towards the end, it almost collapses under its own weight, but honestly, its one of the most fun times I've had at the movie all year.

    When my boyfriend told me that we are going to see a movie called Cowboys and Alliens, i prepared myself for a disaster, i mean the name of this film sounds ridiculous. However, i was very pleasantly surprised because the film was really good and entertaining. The film is a hybrid between a sci-fi flick and a western and it is fused together perfectly. The film is amazing visually and has a really good story that is acted very well. Basically, everything about tjhis film was good and I was on the edge of my seat for the whole film. Overall, this was a great movie and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters.
