It has a good (though slow) start (namely the title) but Ron Howard's involvement is a sure omen the movie is going to stiff after the first scene. The action scenes are undistinguished. Ford is pathetic. The score sucks. 2\10

Hmmm, but it's directed by Jon Favreau, so I'd be willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.

I first thought it all started at an obscure business where a producer was asked "So what's next?" and he had to come up with a stupid idea to save his job: "You know, it's gonna be James Bond meets Indiana Jones meets War of the Worlds meets Apollo 13 meets (by the way where is Cambel? Not available? Ok, then...) Iron Man. And guess what? It's gonna be a Western movie."

But actually it's from a comic books. Once again.

I'm probably gonna watch it though, it's not often you have the opportunity to see real western sequences on the big screen.

Like most of you know this idea is not a new one and should be treated as such.
Mixing Westerns with things that belong to other genres and stories has been done since the dawn of Western (movies) cinema and extraterrestrials are no strangers to Frontier towns (The Aurora Encounter).

For good examples of hybrids one doesn't need to look further than Mexico's cowboy film output throughout the 50's and early 60's.
Those films have gunslingers going up against mummies, zombies, skeletons, vampires etc.

Americans put out a few too. Most notably Valley Of Gwanji where Cowboys wrangle up some Dinosaurs!

And if you want to go back further many programmers of the 20's and 30's featured many bizarre/supernatural things in their 50 minute run time.

Perhaps the first example of another genre being mixed with a Western dates back to 1913 (The Werewolf).

Anyway, what do I think of Cowboys And Aliens?
It looked pretty good up until the Aliens showed up.
