Format: DVD
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.

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!

It was really impreesive to see all those old fellows on the scene. This movie shows the importance of the passion, challenge and friendship. You will really be lost in the scenes and enjoy from the beginning till end of the time you reserved ( not spent ) while watching this movie.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr M.R.Watkinson TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Sep 2014
Format: DVD
Should it be 4* or only 3? The whole premise (no, I shan't say anything about the script itself, but the description gives you enough to form an opinion) is blatantly daft. On the other hand, whilst "Hollywood legend" is vastly over-used... Eastwood, Jones, Sutherland, the late Garner all in one film? Surely, it can't not appeal?

Well, it's a long way from perfect, certainly not worth 5*, but it's appealling enough. As you would expect, all 4 stars turn in solid performances. It is a bit focused on gags / SFX / action shots. So Garner & Sutherland are very much cardboard cut-outs, and the relationship between Eastwood & Jones, and between Eastwood & James Cromwell (the character of Bob Gerson) is pretty sketchy. More might have been made of the story, in other words, which might have made the whole thing seem a little less implausible.

But having said that, OK or I Like It, Amazon's Official description of 3 & 4*? Despite the opinions of some other reviewers, there are places, it seems to me, where the film isn't just "fun"; it is trying to take itself seriously. When it does, it's less than convincing, a little too contrived. On the whole, though, it's good fun and the presence of four of Hollywood's finest lifts it just enough to make it, just about, a 4* film.

I expected a typical Eastwood film and had the opposite. The script at times was thin but the comedy and the acting of the entire members was good. On numerous occassions the comedy was very good. The humour crossed the American-British border and you was able to get and understand all the side remarks. Excellent, very enjoyable.

Format: DVD
Clint Eastwood and James Gardner were stars back in the 50's telly with RAWHIDE and MAVERICK, and later many other vehicles. Donald Sutherland and Tommy Lee Jones made a big splash in the 70's, and have gone on to prove they are some of the best actors around today. But all are showing a little wear and tear on the leading man image, but they clearly demonstrate they are spark as tacks and still the best.
They are ageing ex-astronauts that never made it into space - a thorn in their sides. Eastwood went on to design guidance systems for the space platform. One of the communication satellite that used his system is decaying and, unfortunately, none of today's hotshots know how to fix it. So the old space cowboys get a second crack to make it into space.
All four leads give warm, funny and outstanding performances, backed by powerhouse William Devane and James Hampton.
You just cannot miss these old cowboys showing they still have the right stuff!!!
