COWBOYS & ALIENS is a sci-fi action thriller, set in the late 19th Century, in which a cowboy joins forces with a disparate group of locals when their small town comes under attack from aliens.

Violence

There are fight scenes featuring crunchy fist fights, as well as battle scenes in which the aliens are shot and killed, resulting in large explosions of green alien blood upon impact. The violence is occasionally bloody and includes sight of a man being stabbed in the leg, without detail, before the bloody knife is seen embedded in his leg; brief sight of blood sprays as a man is punched in the face; and brief sight of a blood spurt as a man is shot. There is also sight of a blood spatter spraying onto a pane of glass after it is implied that an alien has attacked a human.

Threat

Moderate threat includes sequences in which aliens capture humans by lassoing them and pulling them into the air, scenes in which humans are being experimented on by aliens and a scene in which a young boy is chased and captured by an alien whose chase cavity opens to reveal alien hands that touch his face.

There are references to prostitution and uses of the term 'whore'.
