    Routine Eastwood vehicle is enjoyable enough. It's easy to forgive, what with old-timers giving their best and having some fun. Most pleasant of all is its laidback pacing and classic storytelling with enough breathing space for modicum of character and plot development; contrast that to most recent action films which zoom forward nonstop like a roller coaster.

    Humorously portrays these old veterans of the movie industry as heroes, proving one again to the young how it's all done. Surprisingly, these old-timers still have a thing or two to show us yet.

    Mildly entertaining, good-hearted, and not too bogged down with technology.

    Despite what other say, I think that this movie was filled with suspense - the nervous Russian general, the overwhelming first view of the nuclear missiles, and the scene where Frank [Tommy Lee Jones] ...(final scene spoiler deleted)...

    Though it noticeably rides on the coattails of such classics as "Apollo 13" and "The Right Stuff," Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner's winsome chemistry on screen ultimately makes "Space Cowboys" an enjoyable astronaut flick.

    " Courage , pride and thats what space cowboys is about ". Four legends Clint Eastwood , Tommy Lee Jones, Hunger Games Donald Sutherland an James Garner are reunited to take down the Russian satllite in space. A good plot whats not to enjoy from a clint eastwood film/movie. Great effects , Amazing cast and great Directing from Eastwood. Clint Eastwood Does it AGAIN ! makes the marvelous film

    The plot is too implausible to rank with "Unforgiven," but, oh, what a fun ride.
  2. A lighthearted action adventure starring four of the most likable guys on the planet.
  3. Poorly engineered: lurchingly paced, the dramatic conflicts duct taped together.
