March 6, 2018
Space Cowboys is at least three different movies--high-tech thriller, low-key comedy, rumination on aging--jammed together into an implausible but very likable entertainment.
July 13, 2015
A cheerful, thoroughly unambitious yarn.
December 28, 2010
Weak and saggy script meets predictable plot.

November 4, 2010
Problems are evident, and eminent, from a black-and-white flashback prologue in which four young men speak with old actors' voices. Yes, a man purportedly in peak physical condition sounds like a 70-year-old who's eaten bags of gravel daily for 30 years.

Grumpy Old Astronauts--or, rather, Grumpy Old Air Force Officers Who Get Sent into Space to Fix a Damaged Satellite.

April 29, 2009
A terrible effort with a bland script, boring plot, and uninspired story...
January 29, 2005
...an equivocal movie that can't seem to decide whether to play its ridiculous premise straight.

It's tempting to pin a derisive label like Geezers in Space on this comedy-drama, but its veteran stars...make Space Cowboys hard to dislike.

December 8, 2002
Charm and personality are able to overwhelm the inherent silliness of the situation and the characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 2, 2002
Despite the poignancy of old age, the mood of the film is cheerful, sustained by the high spirits of the four veterans.
October 21, 2002
I hope a few more scripts for these old geezers are in the offing. Like the Lemmon-Matthau films, this one is just plain fun.
October 15, 2002
Like its stars, the movie may be a little creaky sometimes, but it suffers from no lack of attitude.

June 15, 2002
one of the summer's most pleasant surprises, a solid "buddy picture" with a startlingly suspenseful last half-hour.
June 13, 2002
One advantage "Space Cowboys" has over "Armageddon" is that Eastwood is a more laconic director than Michael Bay. Then again, who isn't?

Em alguns momentos, acaba lembrando excessivamente o competente Apollo 13, mas isso Ú mais uma virtude do que um defeito.

Where Armageddon merely strutted, Cowboys swaggers. What's the difference? Style.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 24, 2001
Space Cowboys doesn't so much embrace high concept as get dragged behind it kicking and screaming.
Full Review | Original Score: C
May 10, 2001
It's a rare pleasure to watch four terrific actors having the time of their lives.

Clint, for all his good intentions and graceful aging, is in danger of overstaying his welcome.

April 17, 2001
Like any self-respecting Olympia Dukakis movie, Space Cowboys knows its demographic and panders pathetically to them.
