Uranium isn't explosive and can't be ignited by dynamite. Uranium-233 will "go supercritical" and result in a nuclear explosion if more than about 33 pounds are formed into a perfect sphere (more is needed if it is shaped differently. Other isotopes of Uranium have even larger critical masses. Since the Uranium in the boxes hadn't already exploded, they must not have contained the critical mass of uranium and blowing the boxes up with dynamite would only have scattered the uranium making it less likely to explode.

It's "War of the Worlds" set in the Old West. Just as a legendary train robber is about to be hanged in a small Western town, a bunch of mechanical creatures invade the town and kill everyone in their path. A mother ship also begins to hover overhead. The outlaw and several others desperately battle the space invaders, but they quickly get picked off one by one. By the time the dust has settled ... well, you can guess the outcome. A Canadian job, this has some interesting characters but very poor CGI for the invaders. And the action sequences are clumsily staged. You never believe for a moment that humans and monsters are battling one another. A little more production money and attention to script details would have helped. As it is, we were just relieved when it was over.
