O que se diz lá fora sobre COWBOYS & ALIENS, de Jon Favreau:
«COWBOYS & ALIENS has without any doubt the most cockamamie plot I've witnessed in many a moon.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Favreau wavers uncertainly between goofy pastiche and seriousness in a movie that wastes its title and misses the opportunity to play with, you know, ideas about the western and science-fiction horror.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
«While COWBOYS & ALIENS offers little in the way of sociological insight (except perhaps giving the white man a taste of his own resource-stealing medicine), it's still a ripping good ride.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«COWBOYS & ALIENS has fun moments, but it's a plodding entertainment because it mostly tastes like leftovers.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«The key to its success lies in the determination by everyone involved to play the damn thing straight. Even the slightest goofiness, the tiniest touch of camp, and the whole thing would blow sky high. But it doesn't.»
Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter.
