The phrase "over the hill" only applies where there's gravity! Forty years after their original space mission was scrapped, a retired Air Force "space cowboy" leads a group of former astronauts on a dangerous mission to help repair a damaged Cold-War-era Russian satellite. Despite their age, they prove they still have the right stuff. Directed by and starring Oscar-winner Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby," "Unforgiven"). The all-star cast includes Oscar-winner Tommy Lee Jones ("The Fugitive," the "Men in Black" movies), Oscar-nominee James Garner ("Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," "Maverick"), Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland ("The Art of War," "JFK") and Oscar-nominee James Cromwell ("The Sum of All Fears," "L.A. Confidential"). Action and comedy combine to make this a trip into orbit that few will forget!

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: While the plot is overly cliched, the suberb acting by the stars (especially the tense interactions between Clint Eastwood and Tommy Lee Jones) and the spectacular special effects make this a movie worth seeing.
Fun if predictable adventure has great cast.
