    Expertly directed, acted and written crowd-pleaser.
  2. 80
    Eastwood provides more than an hour of easygoing fun, followed by 45 minutes of action and suspense.
  3. From both sides of the camera, Eastwood works the crowd better than he has in years.
  4. 74
    He's (Eastwood) made a mature film that bests nearly all of the summer's highly touted blockbusters for pure escapism.
  5. Poorly engineered: lurchingly paced, the dramatic conflicts duct taped together.
  6. 50
    An implausible action adventure with the most geriatric payload since a community of retirees lifted off in "Cocoon."

    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. Expand
