Cowboys & Aliens: Orci and Kurtzman Sleeping While On Duty, Again

One of the many advantages of a film adaptation is that you’ll be able to refurbish the original source material into a better form of art and entertainment. You can move things around. You can fix bad story logics.
These are some technologically advanced monstrous scary aliens, but so far they’re only manage to kidnap and kill secondary characters plus some extras, and can’t even handle a child armed with a regular size knife. I guess Orci and Kurtzman were sleeping while on duty, again. But hey, if they can get people flocking their movies and break the box office time after time, year after years, on half-wits, then obviously there’s no real reason for them to quit it anytime soon.

My Rating: 3/10
