Space Cowboys (2000)
A nice little movie, not too outrageous and the expert acting makes it enjoyable
We own this movie in our home collection and we haven't watched it in a
while. Saw it again tonight on TV, and realized that it is still a good
Clint Eastwood produces and directs this movie, and draws some
"experienced" actors to help him fill the lead roles. They manage to
extol the trials and tribulations of the senior years, while still
capturing the exuberance of youth from the past.
the story leads a mildly predictable pattern, but in this case it is
not the end of the story that is primarily important, but instead how
they get there. Also, all 4 lead actors all come off as really having a
good time in the movie, it feels like they really enjoyed making this
one and it comes out on the screen in the performances.
The pace is even and smooth, again demonstrating Clint Eastwood's
legacy of directing and acting in watchable, enjoyable movies, no
matter what the gender.
I should also mention that the special effects and the space sequences
are stunning and much better done than most other movies in near-earth
space. That would be the industrial Light and Magic team doing it
