Movie Summary

Director:
Clint Eastwood
Released:
2000
Rating:
PG-13

A Soviet communication satellite is about to fall out of orbit. NASA is aware of the situation and would like to capture the satellite, rather than let it fall out of orbit. The only problem with their plan is the satellite is so old, no one knows how to deal with it. Ultimately, NASA decides it must recruit a retired former Air Force pilot to help with the mission. The pilot, Dr. Frank Corvin, agrees to help with the mission, despite his dislike for NASA director, Bob Gerson. His only stipulation is that he be allowed to work with his former team, who are all also retired. The old team consists of Jerry O'Neill, William "Hawk" Hawkins and Tank Sullivan. However, once the men return to space, they find out there is much more to their mission than they were led to believe.
