Big Hollywood

The film is driven more by its concept than by its plot but it's still a fun summer film.

Expensive, a misfire, but perfectly servicable for what it is

Delivers on the promise of an exciting genre mash-up but, even with a talented cast and revered team of writers, fails to weave a fulfilling story.

Patchy, if enjoyable in parts, but nowhere near as awesome as that title suggests it should be.

Rather refreshingly what-you-see-is-exactly-what-you-get: a western with aliens grafted on, or a sci-fi invasion film with cowboys grafted on--nothing more, nothing less.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

'Reach for the skies' has a whole new meaning now. The science-fiction Western 'Cowboys & Aliens' is an entertaining, genre-blending romp. It's a serious movie, too - a drama with comedic moments - and that makes it all the more exciting.

Not the Boys Own Adventure it could have been, but a fun - if often flawed - romp.

Cinema em Cena

Uma diversão eficiente que, sim, poderia ter explorado sua ótima premissa com mais cuidado, mas que ao menos não a desperdiçou com "homenagens" tolas e auto referenciais.

I don't think too many people are going to wander into the theater expecting The Tree of Life. The film delivers exactly what it promises.

"A fun idea with just enough action, welcoming actors, and big-budget effects to make it perfect Sunday matinee material."

Sydney Morning Herald

There is nothing that fascinating about Favreau's treatment, nor his source material, but compared with similar blockbuster fare of recent months, this curious exercise in genre bending is very watchable.

Liverpool Echo

It does actually seem to work, giving audiences a healthy number of action pieces and a solid storyline that isn't as bonkers as it looks on paper - if you're willing to suspend a massive dollop of belief that is.

There's no doubt seeing a cowboy leap from a horse on to a spaceship is all kinds of awesome.

I wanted to more than love Cowboys & Aliens. For two hours I wanted to feel 17 again.

If you can swallow the shameless set-up, it's all highly entertaining.

Jon Favreau handles the big setpieces with competence if no great flair; whenever the plot backs itself into a corner something else will make a sudden, inexplicable interruption.

A wild and spaced-out horse opera.

The premise does pretty much what it says on the tin.

Birmingham Post

For all its A-list ingredients of concept, cast and director, the resulting mash-up is merely a superior B-movie, as uncertain a fusion as potato on a pizza.

Enjoyable, well made and superbly acted sci fi-slash-Western adventure that duly delivers both cowboys and aliens, though a little bit of humour wouldn't have gone amiss.
