Movie Review #354: Cowboys & Aliens

Lifeless Entertainment.

Big in concept but small in impact, Jon Favreau’s visualization of the sci-fi western showed sparks of something great, but ultimately it turned out to be a robotic and mediocre tale that couldn’t stand on its own. There’s a lack of character development in which even Daniel Craig has failed to save. There little room for back stories, which caused disconnect with me and the movie. I also didn’t like some of the elements in the story, especially Olivia Wilde’s role in it. Plus its inconsistent tone was confusing at times. It’s a bit disappointing because I really liked the setting and it felt like a missed opportunity.  And by the end it just felt empty and incomplete and I can’t really recommend it to anyone other than those who just want an average time waster.
