Cowboys & Aliens

CowboysandAliens

This is one of those films where everything that you need to know about it is in the title.  The film is pretty much done as a straight-forward western, except for the fact that the villains just happen to be alien invaders.

I think it's this western/sci-fi genre-bending that makes the film so fun to watch.  It also helps that the film has a great cast that includes the likes of , , Olivia Wilde, and .

There were some slow bits around the middle and the look of the aliens (which are pretty much reptilian brutes) could have been slightly more imaginative.  However, overall I have to say that I was quite entertained by this film.

8/10
