Space Cowboys

Space Cowboys is a 2000 science fiction film directed and produced by Clint Eastwood. Eastwood also stars in the film alongside Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner as four older "ex-test pilots" who are sent into space to repair an old Soviet satellite. The original music score was composed by Eastwood and Lennie Niehaus.

Space Cowboys was well received and holds a 79% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. On Metacritic the film has a 73 out of 100 indicating "Generally favorable reviews". The film received a moderately favorable review from Roger Ebert: "it's too secure within its traditional story structure to make much seem at risk — but with the structure come the traditional pleasures as well." The film grossed over $90 million in its United States release, more than Eastwood's two previous films—True Crime and Absolute Power—combined.
