SPACE COWBOYS (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Space Cowboys
—a Clint Eastwood directed film—has all the earmarks of his directing style and fits a well-crafted story to that style. Even though the storyline revolves around seasoned citizens regrouping to perform as saving heroes, Eastwood pulls the story off with complete finesse so that it easily becomes worth not only a watch, but a re-watch. No feeling sorry for this senior set as they perform outstandingly and refreshingly well with the spunk and personality to pull off a good and decent story. Watch for James Garner in one of the lead roles.
