COWBOYS & ALIENS

Should be “Cowboys & Indians & Aliens” – sort of like a Lego set with really nifty pieces that don’t quite fit together. And when you do get them together, you’re not sure what you’ve got. Did they use up all their effects budget to pay the big-name stars? Because the CGI aliens were lame. The alien wrist gun was cool, but it just happened to land on his wrist and just happened to fit and just happened to respond to his nervous system. And the aliens attacked the cowboys (and Indians) in hand-to-hand combat instead of zapping them. Eight names get writing credit and not an original idea in the film. But that’s what you’d expect with Roberto Orci involved. A great cast, some great set pieces, but overall a letdown.
