Cowboys & Aliens

Action Western Sci-Fi Comic


 

A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region.

"Cowboys and Aliens" really is as stupid as the title suggests. What begins promisingly as a well-grounded western with a barely acceptable premise, slowly turns to farcical romp. It seems the 'aliens' are reduced to a basic condiment, simply added as a side dish, or a spice, in an otherwise very bland story. Sure, it's probably the only chance you'll get to see an extraterrestrial get hog-tied, but that's no excuse for a film where the characters and audience share a single plight... as mere victims of gold-digging.
