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]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
