Eric Roberts stirs some conflicting feelings in me. How is it that the man who was in one of my childhood’s coolest films (Best of the Best) and has a superstar actor sister, consistently end up in roles that sometimes must have been written for David Hasselhoff or Lorenzo Llamas?
No idea, especially considering his fairly solid acting chops. Eric Roberts generally raises the class of any project he’s involved in – and Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs certainly needs some class. But everything else it appears to have loads of.
Brace yourself for this one:
I think that we can all agree: that looks freaking awesome. Well, as long as you weren’t expecting a glossy, high-budget movie. But so what? The last ‘high gloss’ idea like this was Cowboys vs. Aliens – and that just collapsed under the weight of its own pace and pretentiousness. This looks more like Tremors, if Tremors was made by the people behind Sharknado.
“After a mining explosion in Livingston, Montana, formerly believed extinct breeds of dinosaurs suddenly emerge from the rubble. Now, a disgraced cowboy, who recently returned home to make amends for his past wrongdoings towards his ex-girlfriend, must team up with her new boyfriend, the sheriff, to defend their town against the rampaging beasts. With the help of a few local gunslingers, the posse must band together in order to survive the deadly attack and take back their town.”
And some poster art that would make for a eye-catching t-shirt:
“Let the best species win.”
Yeah, that sounds like my kinda movie…
