Product Details


Product Description

Special Features

Even though this DVD doesn't boast that it's a special edition, it has some of the nicest extras you'd want to see. There's nearly an hour of behind-the-footage material, all of it superior made-for-cable featurettes so often included on DVDs. The technicians divulge little tricks of the trade, revealing more computer effects in the film than you'd think. Longtime Eastwood editor Joel Cox provides insight into the director's work routine. The highlight, though, is an extended version of the four principles' appearance on The Tonight Show, with Jay Leno providing some interesting comments on how he chooses what films will "appear" on his show. --Doug Thomas

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow Gradually Moving Old Guys Feb. 2 2007
By R. Kirk
Format:DVD
This movie starts out at 2:12 minutes - and gradually builds to an interesting sci-fi cresendo. I say Science Fiction, because the film is a fiction - which is based around NASA, and outer-space. Besides, the special effects are pretty cool for the last 45 minutes. So lets call this, a social plot, gentle sci-fi film.

Actually, Clint Eastwood is clearly the best actor of the four stars. Afterall, Clint directed and Produced this effort. The film has some emotional moments - which inevitably draw the viewer in. It's a fiction, so I rode along with the implausability of it all, but the science element was intriguing. Worth a view, besides, Donald Sutherland wouldn't have enlisted in this film, if he didn't feel it had a fringe element.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rousing and heartwarming crowdpleaser Oct. 27 2003
Format:DVD
Several years ago John Glenn was launched into space as the first senior citizen to do so. In doing so, NASA inadvertantly sent a message: being older doesn't mean being any less effective. It was a dynamite message to the world that anyone who'd seen a single episode of the Golden Girls or watched a single presidential speech by Ronald Reagan (our most senior president ever elected) could have told you. However, it is a message that continues to bear repeating.
Space Cowboys takes the John Glenn trip one (or four) further. In the prologue,four early jet pilot/astronaut pioneers get a bum treatment at the hands of a government ladder climbing boss, and are effectively ousted from the space program.
Flash forward forty years and our four early space pioneers are the not-so-young Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland. NASA calls upon Clint to repair a communications satellite because he invented the computer boards which are on it - but how did NASA's technology get into a Soviet satellite?
Slated to be advisory only, Eastwood manages to finagle his "team" on the space shuttle to repair the satellite.
The film spends a great deal of time on the backstory and the training of these "geezers" as they prepare for space launch. It spends too little on the space adventure itself. I don't begrudge one minute of the backstory, but I wish more time had been spent on the adventure. It feels rushed when compare to the rest of the film. I won't divulge any of the excitement that takes place, but suffice it to say there is plenty.
Eastwood directed this film and is credited with assisting in writing it as well. He's done a fine job.

The cast is a dream, and they do pretty well playing crusty, larger than life space heroes 40 years later. Some of the special effects are pretty. And that's about what gets it 2 stars.
But the plot and script are full of holes large enough to drive a Soyuz through. Just one -- it's inconceivable that this mission would be flown without a serious set of schematics for the "communication satellite" and probably a gaggle of Russian techies hanging around for reference. Instead, we have the one sinister Russki aparatchik with a secret. It all seems to be handled like a small discretionary fund project, instead of a novel, newsworthy Major Event.
The thirty day buildup for a complex new mission would be hard to swallow using personnel already familiar with the STS systems, but to bring the old guys up to speed on all that's new since they were flying jets, while they're struggling to run laps, lift weights and .. oh yes, hang out in the local bars, get in fights and pick up chicks .. give me a break.
And it doesn't, or shouldn't, require hindsight to doubt the realism of a Shuttle full of holes, with failing systems, bulling its way through the atmosphere to a seat of the pants landing by a backup pilot with maybe a couple of runs in the simulator.
I've had some experience with how STS missions run, had small roles in very subsidiary control rooms and watched how both the major and the bit players work, and while excellent special effects give a feeling of verisimilitude to the scenes in space, the overall feel .. the people, the systems .. just does not have the Right Stuff. For a real gut-level realism, see "Apollo 13"

5.0 out of 5 stars These Men are Truly Ageless April 26 2003
Format:DVD
Impressive. Plain and simple. Clint Eastwood has proved himself, yet again, as a remarkably competent actor and director. Space Cowboys is both heartfelt and funny. Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner round out the middle age cast of space-goers assigned to go into orbit to fix an ailing satellite.
Sending this group of retirees in to space was not exactly the perfect plan for NASA. But Eastwood's character, Frank Corvin, was determined to get Team Datalys in to space after they missed their chance some forty years before. Jones was great as "Hawk;" there was amazing tension but ultimately respect between Frank and Hawk. Sutherland and Garner were both great additions to the cast as well. James Cromwell plays a rather fitting NASA naysayer. The whole of Team Datalys were grounded by this man. . .
It was rather fascinating to see the concept of age in this movie. It is plausible that Eastwood is himself, feeling his age. Though it was clear that these gentlemen were quite capable, they knew that the days ahead of them were fewer than the days behind. Coming to grips with this and living life to the fullest are paramount.
This is a great movie, and a must-have in any DVD collection.
