I don’t know, I just didn’t feel cowboys and aliens. It was cool until they started going after the aliens and then it just seems like it fell apart and lost me. It was like they said, let’s do this original concept and then make it 100% cliché.
Acting- The acting was fine, the characters did well enough in portraying their characters and giving off emotion or not depending on who they were.
The plot- other than taking place in the wild west, clichéd alien invasion story. This movie was sold to me as James Bond and Han Solo fight ET in True Grit directed by the guy behind iron man. It wasn’t really that. That would have been way cooler.
I am not going to recommend this movie. If you think that you might want to see this movie, go check out Enemy Mine. It will be a more constructive use of your time, in my opinion. It was an okay movie to have on in the background, but other than the tropes, there was something missing about it that just kept it from drawing me in.
