    Enjoyable hokum.

    As far as these low budget sub SyFy films go, this one isn’t too bad.

    The CGI isn’t great, I don’t think Amblin/Legendary Entertainment will
    be losing sleep over this as competition for the Jurassic Park
    franchise; yet the film is good fun if not taken too seriously (and if
    you take a film called Cowboys vs Dinosaurs’ seriously then you deserve
    a poke in the eye with a blunt stick. There are worse ways to pass an
    hour or so if you can tolerate the dreadful dialogue, ludicrous plot
    and acting. Most of the actresses seem to have come straight off the
    ‘casting couch’ as I seriously doubt they got in the film for their
    acting abilities.

    I don’t think there will be too many sequels thankfully.

    Predictably corny with awkwardly attractive ladies, better to just embrace the corny nature

    Eric Roberts have been involved in so many of these B-movies this year
    alone and with title such as Cowboys vs Dinosaurs, you would know what
    to expect here. In that regard the movie delivers, it’s a series of
    cheesy dialogues and terrible effects conveyed by entirely
    uncomfortable cast. This movie is for when you have exhausted every
    other movie option and at best might just find some comedy.

    There are cowboys, and then they meet with dinosaurs. If that sounds
    rather uninformative, it’s because narrative offers little explanation.
    In fact, most of the times the focus is geared towards attractive
    ladies that have little to no credible acting skill. To put it mildly,
    they are most likely recruited from adult entertainment industry.

    One doesn’t accidentally stumble on Cowboys vs Dinosaurs, you should
    know the inherent shady production, might just as well embrace it.

    Incredible

    There are two writers for the script of this movie. Each has produced
    volumes. If you combined their entire life’s work, wadded it into a
    ball, and held it up, God would come down from Mount Jeebus to destroy
    it. They apparently took the script from Cowboys & Aliens (itself
    pretty uninspired), changed a few words, and presto. Take away the 160
    million dollar budget and good actors and there you have it; Cowboys vs
    Dinosaurs.

    There is nothing here. It’s like everyone involved said ”mail me my
    check, I’m phoning this one in.” Even for SyFy, this really sucked. No
    amount of effort appears to have been applied at all. If they weren’t
    making money doing this, I’m sure it would stop, but it never does.
    Don’t ask me how they do it.

    In the realm of SyFy movies, this one falls between Mega-(insert name
    here) and Shark-(include anything you want here). It’s a total waste of
    time. And this from a guy who gave Robocroc a 6. The acting, the CGI,
    the production values, all have been thrown out the window. I don’t
    know what happened here, but obviously something did.

    If you are stuck for something to watch, and only this is on, clean the
    garage instead. You know it needs it anyway, and your time will have
    been better spent.

    Standard-issue fun cheesy creature feature

    Following a mine accident, the residents of a small town find a group
    of dinosaurs unleashed and running amok, forcing them to turn to a
    disgraced former rodeo star to combat the dinosaurs and save the town.

    This one wasn’t all that bad of a cheesy creature feature. One of the
    better features here is the absolutely fun and enjoyable amount of
    action throughout this, which makes for quite a fun pace here. This
    starts off really nicely with the opening mine explosion with the
    dinosaurs coming through the smoke and debris in rather creepy scenes
    hunting the miners through the workers through the mine, and the scene
    at the swimming hole attacking the girls out in the middle of the
    desert is highly enjoyable as well. The attack on the farmhouse is fine
    with the really brutal kills coming into play, while the big set-up
    here comes through into two rather impressive and wholly enjoyable
    cheesy action scenes here with their initial attack on the town. Filled
    with highly enjoyable brief attacks on the different establishments
    throughout here, from the Laundromat and the diner to the police
    station and finally the barricaded bar where the fun of their
    barricades holding along with the gunfire to keep them out all come off
    as really enjoyable, continuous action scenes which is all nicely
    interspersed with the raptors and the rex out on the city streets
    leading to some fun swarming scenes as they come after the townspeople
    while the rex regenerates plenty of cheesy fun stalking through the
    streets as well as showcasing the really energetic chase sequences as
    they try to get away from it in their jeep as they engage in plenty of
    firefights to combat it. Containing a ton of cheesy action, plenty of
    kills and an extended section of the film allows for quite an overall
    fun time. The other big scene here is the finale which is really
    exciting here with the barricade in the warehouse as the boards and
    gunfire hold them off and make rather good use of the different floors
    for some suspenseful times leaping up to take them and getting some
    really nice gore along with the action which carries into the big chase
    away into the quarry which has a ton of gunfire and explosive action
    along the way, resulting in a lot of fun. Along with some enjoyable
    non-dino scenes that keep this going, this is good enough to hold out
    over the flaws. The main issue here is the rather inane plot line about
    the corrupt, shady businessman trying to buy over the conspiracy at any
    cost here, which is so unrealistically portrayed here he comes off as
    completely unbelievable in how he continually ignores every bit of
    common sense, even in the form of a creatures’ carcass right in front
    of everyone around them yet he pushes on to his other commitments
    rather than follow common logic. The only other problem area here was
    the CGI, which manages to come through on pretty much the same issues
    they usually present in obviously-pixelated skin, constant special
    awareness flaws and the inability to react to anything in the
    environment which makes them all the more obviously fake. Otherwise,
    this one had a lot to really like here.

    Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Language.

    Wonderfully Awful!

    The title alone suggests that this movie is going to be ridiculous and
    trust me it does not disappoint. The acting? Bad. Special effects? Some
    of the worst I’ve ever seen. Plot? It’s there but as bad as everything
    else. All these are ingredients for a horrible movie but a horrible
    movie that one with a sense of humor should certainly get a kick out
    of. I cracked up watching this movie especially the ridiculous ending.

    I shouldn’t have to tell you to go into watching this kind of movie
    knowing it’s bad or to watch this with a sense of humor, you should
    know this by the title alone. Anyone expecting something like Jurassic
    Park is barking up the wrong tree here. Enjoy this movie, it’s
    wonderfully awful! Hope you like this like I did!

    Enjoyable in That Good-Bad Way

    After an accidental explosion at a local mine, dinosaurs emerge from
    the rubble to terrorize a small western town. Now, a group of
    gunslingers must defend their home if anyone is going to survive in a
    battle of cowboys versus dinosaurs.

    After watching ”Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre”, I needed to follow
    up my cheese with more cheese — two movies about explosions unleashing
    prehistoric creatures who kill! And, you know what? This is the better
    of the two. Still terrible, but in a fun way.

    Was the biggest problem the awful dinosaurs? Nope. It was trying to
    figure out why none of the men in this town were under 40 and none of
    the women were older than 25. The romantic pairings were rather creepy.

    Kelcey Watson is the star of this film. His intensity and over-the-top
    performance is great, and I would love to see him transition from
    cheesy movies to bigger things. Sara Malakul Lane was also really good,
    and she seems to be on that edge between big things and B-movies. She’s
    been in FHM, so her modeling is known… but then she has a spotty
    track record of movies that probably barely paid her. She’s better than
    that.

    The real surprise is Eric Roberts. Someone please tell me how he went
    from huge star to the king of D-grade movies… he really hit rock
    bottom with ”The Dead Want Women”. In this film, though, he gives a
    really good performance. A bit cheesy, but fitting or the movie. I
    suspect he was only on set one day, but he really nailed it.
