“Itu0026#39;s easy to figure out what Cowboys u0026amp; Aliens is going to be. Iu0026#39;m not familiar with the comic book that itu0026#39;s based on but the film is definitely what the title has promised us. There are cowboys, then there are aliens. If you are fond to Western movies then youu0026#39;ll be entertained but if you are expecting too much aliens then you might get disappointed. You wonu0026#39;t be seeing anything mind blowing in this film. If you want to see Sci-Fi action plus Western Violence then this film is just for you.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCowboys u0026amp; Aliens is nothing but to entertain you. The only thing that is unique here is the Western u0026amp; Sci-Fi collaboration. The film is just your typical Western movie but instead of Indians or some sadistic bandit, the aliens are the antagonist of the film. The aliens are pretty intriguing but we donu0026#39;t see them that much until the third act. Itu0026#39;s disappointing if you are expecting too much aliens. The only things we see them do are ride their ships, stab people, shoot with their weapons, u0026amp; jump scare the audiences. Itu0026#39;s also your typical alien invasion film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAt least the action is full of explosions. Jon Favreau sure knows how to make the action scenes exciting no matter how flawed they are. The performances saved most of the film. Daniel Craigu0026#39;s character is actually bland in the script so does Olivia Wildeu0026#39;s, but Craigu0026#39;s performance gives a little more character to the role. I donu0026#39;t know what to say about Olivia Wildeu0026#39;s, she is just hot. Harrison Ford u0026amp; Sam Rockwell do what they do best. Paul Dano can be both fun to watch and annoying at the same time.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s easy to recognize that the CGI effects were made by Industrial Light u0026amp; Magic, since the CGI aliens looks just like any monster from J.J. Abramu0026#39;s films. No doubt, itu0026#39;s good. The score is true to its western themes. The production design is pretty decent enough for a western film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn the end, Cowboys u0026amp; Aliens is just another blockbuster released to our cinemas. I donu0026#39;t know if this film is going to be remembered years from now but I think the only purpose of this film is to show its gritty western violence and some sci-fi action. If youu0026#39;re expecting more than the title then you will be disappointed. If you are expecting more aliens than the cowboys then youu0026#39;ll be disappointed. Cowboys are the focus and the aliens end up being the jump scare of the movie. Itu0026#39;s not bad nor good though. If you are careless about the story and the character development, u0026amp; youu0026#39;re just seeking for some sheer action and huge explosions then I can recommended this. But not quite.”
