If you are looking for action, action, and only ACTION! This is the movie for you but if you're looking for story, good twists, action, character development and good acting, this is a waste of time.

A tough loner thief is arrested in 1970s New Mexico. Soon the arresting sheriff, along with the thief and the rich guy from whom the thief thieved are batting aliens. Alliances falter and some hokey drama happens, but, of course you know who wins. With a name like Cowboys and Aliens, I would have thought it would be more campy. The tone was a bit too dark and everything about it was mediocre.

What's not to love? Daniel Craig kills it, Olivia Wild is smoking , Harrison Ford is a baller, and it combines 2 of the greatest genres to hit the big screen. Suspend your disbelief, put away your self proclaimed critic cap, and enjoy this for what it is.

The blending of two separate genres may not be smooth as there are some roughness to the mix, but it'd done its job to still be enjoyable when it's decently-written with respective aspects and benefitting from the cast's efforts, especially Craig and Ford standing out. (B+)

(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

Cowboys AND aliens? A good cast and director? Sounds like a winner to me.

An embarrassment for all involved. I'm rooting for the Indians, in this case.

With a smart, but absurd idea, Cowboys & Aliens provides some great performances from Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig, but unfortunately, they couldn't save this film from disaster

If you go in knowing that the mere title "Cowboys & Aliens" is the dumbest/coolest sounding idea ever, you may just go in with the right attitude. And with the right attitude you just might enjoy it.

Cowboys and Aliens has entertaining visuals as well as fun leads in Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford.

Not a connoisseur of Westerns, but so much in this film seemed cliched. More could have been done with a concept like this. As he gets older, Harrison Ford seems to be getting typecast, playing cantankerous characters.

Despite the silly and potentially fun premise, Cowboys and Aliens takes itself too seriously and because of it ends up being stale and even boring instead of a goofy and insane good time that it could have been

Good fun shoot ' em up with aliens. What more do you want. Implausible? Sure, but who cares it's a fun shoot 'em up with aliens.
Did I mention that this was a great shoot 'em up with aliens?

What kind of idea was this?!
July 10, 2015
Big budget movie with a cheap horror film feel. Too much random violence, not enough plot

There were cowboys and there were aliens. And I loved the concept and Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford's interaction.

I found this movie to be very enjoyable! Its a fun popcorn and refreshment on a big screen tv adventure that shouldn't be taken seriously. That's not to say that the movie did not have serious parts, but with a title like "cowboys and aliens" what do you expect?! This is a fun ride worth the price of admission!

Actually pretty good. The biggest complaint I have heard is really stupid, since gold is a very useful element and Aliens taking it for whatever reason is plausible.

It's not a great movie but it is an action pack movie. Cowboys, aliens and guns, what more could a guy ask for!

Better than people have been saying. Good performances by Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Paul Dano.

Is it the next Godfather? No. Is it undeniably stupid? Yes. But is it a big silly summer tent-pole that screams "awesome"? Yeah, pretty much.
