So to begin,
DAT ASS.
Cowboys and Aliens was glorious. It was everything I want in an action movie (you’re about to find out what I want in an action movie.)
It had:
cowboys
guns
well timed and coordinated fight scenes
aliens
a genuinely frightening and malicious antagonist(s) 
interesting backstory incorporated smoothly into the movie
ALIENS, SCARY LOOKING ALIENS
hot men being badasses
a cohesive plot
epic ‘last stand’ scene
clever one liners
giant explosions
a weathered protagonist 
a romance that isn’t thrown in your face
Normally with an action movie, I get 3 or 4 of these. I had them all today and it was magnificent.
