First person shooter
While Cowboys & Aliens’ source material is, sadly, a graphic novel about settlers and scalawags in 1873 New Mexico, its real progenitor is the movie Western of yore: Black hats versus white hats. Lasses and scoundrels in saloons. Gunslingers and cattlemen.
And extra-terrestrials. Yeah, it still is a sci-fi film. It’s also a kick-ass summer film with excellent production values — War of the Worlds with six-shooters and arrows.
