…was pretty disappointing. Not entirely an awful film by any means, but it’s nothing special either. I was expecting a fun, western movie with some unique set-pieces because it’s, well, cowboys and aliens. Sadly that’s not the overall case even though it had an awesome cast (dude– Sam Rockwell, Paul Dano and the guy who voiced Lex Luthor) and some decent action.
I had high hopes. Clearly because (a) the cast, again, was awesome with guys like Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde and a couple more as I’ve mentioned above. And (b) it was directed by Jon Favreau and written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci (Abrams’ Star Trek and its upcoming sequel), Mark Fergus and Hawk Otsby (Children of Men, Iron Man).
So notice the potential this film could’ve possibly had. Alas it’s just an “OK” movie and it’s not worth $10 if you ask me personally. A matinee would be fine, I guess.
