While Cowboys & Aliens offers little in the way of sociological insight (except perhaps giving the white man a taste of his own resource-stealing medicine), it's still a ripping good ride. Full Review

Washington Post
A loving throwback to the classic westerns and sci-fi adventures of yore, this celebration of two of cinema's most revered genres doesn't stint in lavishing their most cherished conventions with even-handed affection and respect. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Dialogue is terse and predictable, and the sci-fi thriller portion is even less compelling than the Western saga. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Cowboys versus aliens is a concept that may make you smile in anticipation, but wipe that smile off your face before buying your ticket. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
A leaden mash-up of western and science-fiction elements that ends up noisy, grotesque and unappealing. Full Review
