Great actors in a great story. Probably would be more of a comedy to younger people, but we're old enough for it to be quite serious.

Space Cowboys is the best!

"Hey, the title says it all man!..LOL This movie had Clint...need I say more? Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner all give stellar performances. The combination of humor, drama, action/space adventure and character development is thoroughly comprehensive and unparalleled. With the first half being a wonderful and brilliant space adventure comedy and the second half a perfectly directed and acted drama/space action adventure, Space Cowboys truly has it all! HURRAY FOR SPACE COWBOYS! However, the rating is 4 as I am not one to rate movies a 5 barring the fact that they are the best movies ever made and are equally flawless and without developmental defects. However, my one reservation concerns the films ending which I feel could have been much less mainstream and cliched. The last shot is pure directorial brilliance and demonstrates the clearly understated, subtle yet surreal aspect of the masterful direction of Clint Eastwood. It is perfectly Kubrickian and pays testament to the style of the late, great director. However, despite its merits, the conclusion scene knocks the total rating down a notch. As it stands however, this film rates at 4/4.5 out of 5."

"A Russian satellite is having problems with its' guidance system. The technology is dated, and the only one that has a solution to the problem is the person that designed it. That person is Clint Eastwood, and he has a hard time comprehending how they got a hold of classified information, but agrees to do what he can to help as long as they include his other buddies that were never given the chance to be in space. Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner, and Donald Sutherland are his partners in crime, and the situations and antics they get into are hilarious. What a stellar cast, and the supporting cast is just as impressive with James Cromwell, Marcia Gay Harden, and William Devane. This film is very entertaining, well acted, and has many memorable moments. It is one you will enjoy time after time.

"This is a well acted film with a stellar cast. How can you go wrong with a movie that stars Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner? Deftly directed by Clint Eastwood, it is a well made, entertaining film.The plot revolves around a crisis in space that is triggered when a Russian satellite malfunctions and is due to collide with Earth in densely populated areas, unless someone can repair it in space. The problem is that the technology on the satellite is obsolete and no one knows how to tackle it except the inventor of that technology, retired Air Force pilot Frank Corvin, played by Clint Eastwood. Corvin agrees to do so, but only on condition that he and his top gun crew of forty odd years ago go into space to do it themselves. Having been kicked out of the space program in 1958, he wants an opportunity for them to do what they had come so close to doing in the past. NASA agrees, but only if this now geriatric quartet can pass the physical. Their preparation for their big moment provides some laughs, as they ultimately prove themselves the physical equal of their younger counterparts and exceed them in experience and wisdom.Permission for them to go into space is reluctantly granted, but much to their consternation, they ultimately realize they have been sold a bill of goods. Not only has NASA not been dealing in good faith with them, but they eventually discover that a much more serious problem than a satellite malfunction exists. Unfortunately, they do not discover it until they are out in space. What happen in space will keep the viewer glued to his or her seat. There is action, pathos, tension, and heroics. It is a film that says that one is never too old for adventure."
