    They trained body and mind for America`s leap into space. When the moment came, the brash flyboys of Team Daedalus were replaced. Now, 40 years later, another moment has come. And this time, it`s all theirs.

    Directing for the 22nd time and starring for the 42nd, Clint Eastwood leads a stellar cast into orbit in this exhilarating high-tech adventure. Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner join him as old-school test pilots whose grasp of outdated technology makes them the only ones able to repair a primitive, deorbiting Russian satellite that imperils Earth. Strap in for "some of the rightest stuff around" (The Wall Street Journal). With an irresistible payload of heart, humor and heroics, Space Cowboys is all-systems-go.

    A good movie with a cast that is always worth watching. slight drawbacks were that they could have done this film in their sleep. Worth a look though.

    A very entertaining and fun movie.
    While its arguable as to how logical the script is, if taken in the right perspective, this movie can really be satisfying.
    The video transfer is very good. The CG animation is superb and even the dark scenes don`t show any compression signs. The transfer reveals each and every wrinkle on the faces (and bodies, mind you) of the 4 lead characters.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. There is a constant usage of the surrounds during the flight scenes as well as in other space scenes.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include an extensive behind the scenes look that includes some explanations about the CG animation and a very funny "The Tonight Show" sequence.
    Bottom line - a very entertaining and good looking movie. Recommended.
