Exactly, Leonard Maltin! Exactly. And while the film is beautifully shot and cast - yes to Clancy Brown, Sam Rockwell, Keith Carradine, and Adam Beach - I never really felt invested in any of the characters. Especially Olivia Wilde. I could have cared less about Olivia Wilde.I look at it this way: if you removed the science-fiction material, you’d be left with a decent Western that covers pretty familiar territory. If you just focused on the fantastic angle, you’d have a fairly typical alien-invasion yarn. Because neither one of the two ingredients is exceptional in itself, the melding of the genres is uninspired.

The movie would have been better served to ditch the aliens (keep the dog) and just have Daniel Craig roam the New Mexico badlands, glare into the middle distance ...
drink whisky, and beat the crap out of people. That's 2 hours of entertainment!
He could also occasionally stop to adjust his hat.
