Clint Eastwood directs an amusing tale of ageing ex-astronauts given a chance to go back into space, with all the cliches and complete lack of surprises you'd expect. What makes the film is it's gentle charm and humour, delivered by a cast of skilled veterans. The jokes mainly revolve around their age ("Have you noticed how everyone's dead lately?") and often seems like a cross between Apollo 13 and Grumpy Old Men, but it's a damn sight more entertaining than similar gung ho flag wavers such as Armageddon. And the tedious Apollo 13 for that matter.

Space Cowboys is a barely believable film that is survived by a stellar cast. Clint Eastwood's direction is good. but the film suffers from a less then par screenplay. While the visual effects are good, but, they're followed by one ridiculous scene after another. All four of the leads are good, most of all Donald Sutherland. Marcia Gay Harden and William Devane are also good. The film is fun for a while(mostly when Sutherland is around), but then it just gets down right boring.

Yes, you're basically being beaten over and over with every joke imaginable about "old geezers" being sent into space. They're old, we get it. Being fascinated by space travel, and given that there are great actors casted here, I hoped for more. (A scene backed with a completely out of place Nsync song?? Come on.) Clint, I had more fun watching Every Which Way But Loose.
