James Jay Edwards of FilmFracture writes: "There are a lot of huge names attached to Cowboys & Aliens. Not only does it feature both James Bond and Indiana Jones, it is directed by Jon Favreau, who directed both Iron Man films. It is produced by Favreau and, among others, Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard. The visual effects were done by Lucasfilm and the sound was mixed at Skywalker Ranch. There are some heavy Hollywood players involved with Cowboys & Aliens, and it all adds up to summer blockbuster."
