REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  1 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..with their blurry CGIed movement and Alien-meets-Terminator appearance, the title terrors of Cowboys & Aliens are unconvincing, uninteresting, totally generic..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..what the movie lacks in originality and stick-to-your-ribs Western authenticity, it makes up for in pell-mell multiplex entertainment..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..this multitasking genre mash-up successfully unites its discordant elements in a coherent dramatic universe..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

“..teeters into tepid convention and never makes its way out..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..it looks slick, pricey and starry - Indiana Jones teams up with James Bond for a gunfight with space demons. But even Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig can't save a movie that's all concept, no content..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 5

“..is exactly what it sounds like: a cowboy movie and an alien movie thrown together, a genre mash-up that's more fun than good, but pretty good nonetheless..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..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..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : C+

“..has fun moments, but it's a plodding entertainment because it mostly tastes like leftovers..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
