Critic Reviews of "Cowboys and Aliens"Time OutAugust 17, 2011
What started as 'True Grit'-meets-'War of the Worlds' ends up closer to - whisper it - 'Wild Wild West'.New YorkerAugust 08, 2011
Takes itself much too seriously, with acts of brutality outnumbering the gags.indieWireAugust 04, 2011
As its title indicates, this is a strange cross of movie genres, and lest any viewers get antsy, it doesn't allow much time to pass before we first encounter UFOs in the Old West. The film takes its time unraveling the rest of the story...SlateAugust 02, 2011
It's fun to think about what Cowboys & Aliens might have been if any creativity had crept past the title page.New York Magazine/VultureJuly 31, 2011
Cowboys & Aliens is an agreeable time-killer, but I'll bet a couple of clever kids could make a livelier movie with a Woody puppet and a Predator doll.The AtlanticJuly 29, 2011
[A] phenomenally successful two-man war against narrative clarity and continuity.Epoch TimesJuly 15, 2016
It's not common knowledge that aliens were in on the gold rush. Oh, yeah. That's why this story takes place in 1873. Aliens were panning for gold too, see, using advanced panning technology. Riiiight.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
The post-racial utopian vision is nice, but you'd hope it wouldn't take an alien invasion before we finally come to it.Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
Why is this gloriously schlocky premise treated with such ponderous solemnity?Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
The film is driven more by its concept than by its plot but it's still a fun summer film.Tribune News ServiceJanuary 14, 2013
Expensive, a misfire, but perfectly servicable for what it isScreenRantOctober 02, 2012
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.
