Space Cowboys

Space Cowboys ★★★

Funny to think that the plot of this movie is nearly identical to Armageddon (but not, oddly enough, to Deep Impact). And also to think that 20 years after Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland played elderly astronauts, they did it again in Ad Astra. As for this one, it’s a likable and watchable movie, but kind of sloppy in the way Clint movies can sometimes get. (Among other minor things that still bug me: how is there not a better payoff to James Garner’s difficulty delivering homilies?)
