The perfect companion for all film enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

This is a fun movie. Those with memories of the early years of the space program will especially enjoy its sense of nostalgia; and the suggestion that it's never too late to realize an old dream should resonate with almost anyone. Well, maybe not people who really loved Armageddon. They're bound to find Space Cowboys boring and understimulating. Those who found Armageddon loud, fragmented, and obvious may breathe a sigh of relief now that the real space cowboys have come to town.

The story is almost completely immaterial, this is one about the glorious, slightly caricatured characters, and characters played by some of our favourites.

Clint Eastwood; the rock, with a temper

Tommy Lee Jones, the maverick

James Garner, the steady, sane one

Donald Sutherland, the brilliant womaniser

William Devane, a voice of reason

James Cromwell, the nasty manipulative one.

The interplay, the genuine love between the four astronauts; "The Ripe Stuff", one-liners as if they'd been saved for a couple of series of "My Word". "I'll be buying you a drink, young lady" "...I'll be needing one"; "I never said there was anything wrong with my memory", there are just so many.

Yes, there's space stuff a plenty, sight of an SR71, hilarious scenes on a centrifuge. Good space scenes. Particularly good are the scenes set in the '50s, superbly nostalgic.

The story is fun, there are well staged heartstring tugs, and for its whole running time this never puts a toe wrong, let alone a foot.

I will not try to tell the story, it's by the numbers and somewhat predictable. Guess what? It doesn't matter. Sure, you want 'em to go into space, so what? You know they will.

This film is as perfect as Apollo 13.

There's no higher praise.

I started watching this film with some reservations; I love watching anything to do with space travel, especially the Space Shuttle and Apollo missions, but found the idea of a bunch of geriatrics coming out of retirement to fix a dying satellite a bit silly. However after a few minutes I found myself relaxing into it and enjoying the funny moments. It's a gentle kind of film, it's got a reasonable pace, and the acting is good, except I found the sequences in mission control during the climax of the film a bit stilted. I thought the special effects were great for a film like this, however I think even the best actors would struggle to simulate zero gravity convincingly,unless you have got millions to spend and do it for real, like they did in Apollo 13.

There is also a suprise waiting for them up there, which kept my interest in the film going, although it was a little far fetched. So long as you suspend your critical faculties, you will enjoy this film.

Never made as a film to take seriously, the whole point of this film is to watch 4 legendary names of Hollywood go to work on a hugely preposterous plot and just generally have fun with the wild idea of sending 4 geriatric airmen into space.
Putting together Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner sounds like an idea that just can't fail to work on paper. But what I think does make it work in reality is that the actors themselves don't seem to be taking the whole project seriously and because this transfers onto the audience, you can easily put aside the trumped up plot idea and just let the action unfold.
The film does raise the serious point of ageism though and does it in a nice subtle way. No ramming messages down the throat here.
As I say, just sit back and enjoy the film for what it is and don't try to hard to think about the story. Enjoy the wonderful sight of the four "Cowboys" striding up to the front doors of NASA resplendent in leather jackets and shades. Enjoy the lovely sweet romantic moments between Tommy Lee Jones and Marcia Gay Harden. Chuckle along at the witty old-dog one-liners from Sutherland and revel in Eastwood's macho posturing which is still as good as ever.

Format: VHS Tape
Although many people laughed at Amargeddon when the producers felt that they shouldn't have done- Space Cowboys arrives and has a good laugh at itself and the one thing Hollywood discriminates against: AGE.
Clint Eastwood plays Frank Crovin, an Air Force test pilot whose claim to fame is that he was replaced by a chimp! So he never made his dream debut on the moon. Forty years on- Houston has a problem and yes, you guessed it, they call upon Frank and his original crew (Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner) to help out.
Where this film succeeds in in its sheer ability to constantly take the mickey out of its concept. The geriatric jokes are good natured and often poignant as are the performances. And watching the fantastic four enter NASA headquarters dressed in leather jackets and wearing shades and strutting is worth the buying this video for alone. Yeah the premise is hokey and corny but Space Cowboys doesn't pretend to be rocket science, but it certainly splits the cinematic comedy atom. I was laughing throughout most of it.
Eastwood directs as well as stars and gives the film a steady pace and manages to coaxe fully rounded peformances from his co-stars. He also looks a great deal younger than his 71 years.
If you want to see a once in a lifetime cast take on the young 'uns with style, panache and gentle humour then you'll be over the moon with Space Cowboys. If the premise does not appeal then see Scary Movie instead and
weep!
