Synopsis


Space Cowboys
In this adventure drama, four men passed over by the space program get one last chance to be heroes and live out their dreams. Frank Corvin (Clint Eastwood), Hawk Hawkins (Tommy Lee Jones), Jerry O'Neill (Donald Sutherland), and Tank Sullivan (James Garner) were top pilots within an elite Air Force squadron and on the fast track to becoming the first Americans in space in the early 1950s. However, when NASA was established, the pilots were cut out of the loop; Corvin went on to become an aerospace engineer, Hawkins continued on as a freelance pilot, O'Neill became an astrophysicist with a sideline in designing roller coasters, and Sullivan took up preaching as a Baptist minister. Years later, a Russian satellite's guidance system has started to malfunction, and it is expected to crash into the Earth within a matter of weeks. The system is identical to the one Corvin designed for Skylab, so NASA head Bob Gerson (James Cromwell) asks Corvin to help him with the emergency mission to repair the satellite. Corvin agrees under one condition -- that he be sent up to do the repairs himself, with Hawkins, O'Neill, and Sullivan as his crew. Clint Eastwood directed Space Cowboys while also starring as Frank Corvin; his supporting cast includes Marcia Gay Harden, Courtney B. Vance, Loren Dean, and William Devane. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Clint does it again

    Cllint Eastwood's delightful sci-fi/action comedy deals with 4 retired Air Force pilots (Clint, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, & James Garner) who, in the 1950's, came within inches of being the first Americans in space. 40 years later, NASA comes calling when an old Russian satellite's orbit begins to decay. The guidance system is, in the words of one character, 'a dinosaur,' which Clint's character designed. He agrees to help on the condition that he and his old team can finally go up. The four leads are all terrific, as is James Cromwell as the selfish NASA official who prevented the quartet from going to the stars the first time.

    I loved this movie. I grew up through the space race and would have loved going into space. So, it was great to see a movie about some astronaut candidates that had been pasted over finally getting the recognition they deserved.

    watch as these retired astronauts get recruited to save the present from a decaying Russian satellite. they must train fast to meet the current nasa standards before going back to space. The package does include a digital copy code.

    When people talk about Clint Eastwood movies, this one rarely gets mentioned, but it's part of a series of movies he's done in the twilight of his career (and it's been a long one) that are instant classics. This is a must for your collection.

    The photography and special effects are excellent. The soundtrack is also very good.I really didn't care for a couple of the characters, but they were included in the movie for the plot and story line. Overall, it's well done.
