3 stars out of 5 -- It's professional, respectable, watchable...it canters along at an even pace, the action/exposition ratio well managed...
Cowboys & Aliens succeeds brilliantly as a summer film. Beautifully designed, full of crazy action sequences that are genuinely original, the flick is a perfect escapist fantasy into the Weird West. Full Review
Rating: B+ -- From the cool special effects, to its top-notch acting and wickedly fun concept, Cowboys and Aliens is just that film that you may in fact hate to love. But it is really enjoyable. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- The cast is outstanding. The story is compelling-at times, even touching, and the aliens are cool. Sure there are some plot-holes, but they do more right than wrong. Full Review
The gifted cinematographer Matthew Libatique lights Ford and Craig like Western giants against the rugged landscape.
3 stars out of 4 -- [I]t's ambitious and well-made. The acting from the large cast is of a high standard, Craig and Ford were more or less born into their roles...
[T]his film from Jon Favreau shrewdly blends an alien-invasion movie into a Western....COWBOYS & ALIENS is a solid success.
Based on the graphic novel by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, COWBOYS & ALIENS is set in 1800s Arizona, where the local cowboys, headed by gunslinger Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig), and the indigenous Apache tribe have been feuding fiercely for quite a while. Their skirmish is interrupted, however, by the appearance of a spaceship, commanded by an alien creature that's bent on enslaving the human race. It's time for a six-gun shoot-out between these cattle rustlers and space invaders, and there might even be a temporary peace between the cowboys and Indians as they both take aim at these extraterrestrial uninvited guests. Jon Favreau directs from a script by STAR TREK scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with help from LOST's Damon Lindelof. Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell fill out the headlining cast.
