Gli anzianauti si riuniscono e mostrano in fase di allenamento quello che sanno fare. Devono riparare in orbita un vetusto satellite Russo per telecomunicazioni che rischia di precipitare. I suoi impianti ricalcano quelli dello Skylab americano, una tecnologia ormai obsoleta che nessuno sa più come riparare. Their supervising officer, Bob Gerson , chastises Hawk for his recklessness, before taking them to a press conference, where it is announced that the Air Force will no longer be involved in space flight tests as this has now been handed off to the newly created , ending the four's dreams of reaching space. Quattro anziani piloti collaudatori dell'aviazione militare degli stati uniti, già componenti del defunto 'Progetto Dedalus', si ritrovano dopo 40 anni. Rischia di precipitare sulla Terra nel giro di poco tempo. Scenes were filmed on location at the in , and the and in Florida.
The Daedalus successfully launches into orbit. Il siparietto che si crea fra i quattro personaggi è un qualcosa di divertente e malinconico al tempo stesso, specie se lo si rivede a distanza di anni.

After helping Hawk to rig the satellite for launch, Frank takes Ethan back to the shuttle to be tended to.

On the ground, Frank punches Hawk for putting their lives at risk, but their fight is broken up by flight engineer Jerry O'Neill. Frank is initially hostile as he still despises Bob, but agrees to put aside his differences to help with the current situation. Frank discovers that the control system for the satellite originated from Bob's own files and was stolen by the , and that the satellite's computers will launch the missiles at predetermined targets if the satellite falls out of orbit.
Il finale celebra un sacrificio ma non cerca l'applauso. Frank, Tank, and Jerry say their goodbyes to Hawk as he engages the rockets, successfully propelling the missiles away from Earth. The design of the satellite's electronics is archaic and based on those of that Frank had developed. Convalida adesso la tua preferenza. Coerente con la sua concezione artigianale del cinema, ricorre agli effetti speciali subordinandoli al racconto e rivendicando la centralità delle doti umane manualità, intuito, libertà di scelta contro la supremazia della tecnologia.

Clint Eastwood continua il suo percorso di rivisitazione dei miti del cinema americano. Quando ci mostra i quattro vecchietti che si preparano ad andare nello spazio lo fa con grande ironia ma anche con grande affetto. .
While Tank and Jerry tend to the other young astronaut Roger Hines , who suffered a concussion on the impact, Frank and Hawk make a space walk and reach the satellite in time to activate a booster rocket and slow down the orbit. Years later, a Russian satellite's guidance system has started to malfunction, and it is expected to crash into the Earth within a matter of weeks. Se vuoi saperne di più. When a Russian satellite orbiting the Earth starts to veer off course. Later, Frank talks with his wife Barbara and contemplates if Hawk made it to the Moon. As they see to Ethan, the two realize that there is no way to restablize the orbit of the satellite without power, and the only option is to have someone ride on the satellite as they fire the missiles' engines so that it falls into deep space. Eastwood pilota ammirevolmente un altro film con l'abituale understatement , mescolando con sapiente leggerezza i toni, dall'umoristico al drammatico.
Corvin agrees under one condition -- that he be sent up to do the repairs himself, with Hawkins, O'Neill, and Sullivan as his crew. Cast d'eccezione, sì, buoni anche i dialoghi, ma la storia resta prevedibile e soprattutto lenta tant'è vero, che non può assolutamente esser catalogato come film d'azione! Non va così e i nostri partono. Here you will find unforgettable moments, scenes and lines from all your favorite films. However, as they prepare for this maneuver, one of the younger astronauts, Ethan Glance , acting under Bob's original orders, tries to put the satellite into stable orbit himself, which is mistimed and sets off a chain reaction: the satellite collides with the shuttle, damaging most of the shuttle's computer systems and engines, destroying the solar panels on the satellite, and sending it faster into a decay orbit, while Ethan is knocked out and dragged along with the satellite. E con un cast di stelle, che lo nobilita notevolmente. Clint ama ciò che fa e ama il western.
Interior shots of the flight simulator, shuttle, and mission control were filmed on sets at Warner Bros. Made by movie fans, for movie fans. Gerson reluctantly agrees so Frank recruits his former team members, Tank Sullivan, Jerry O'Neill and Hawk Hawkins to join him. After some strenuous tests, they're cleared. Ecco allora i Nostri pronti a partire, con quel mix di individualismo e di spirito di squadra che costituisce la formula vincente. Gli altri ritornano su uno Shuttle avariato che il vecchio Frank fa atterrare pilotandolo a mano.

Per salvare la Terra e i compagni, Hawk, uno dei quattro, porta il satellite verso la Luna. Frank, Tank, and Jerry now work to bring the shuttle back to Earth, with the plan to achieve a low enough altitude to allow the shuttle to be evacuated over water since landing it would be difficult. And they go up with two other astronauts and check out the satellite and discover that they weren't told the whole truth. Frank Corvin Clint Eastwood , Hawk Hawkins Tommy Lee Jones , Jerry O'Neill Donald Sutherland , and Tank Sullivan James Garner were top pilots within an elite Air Force squadron and on the fast track to becoming the first Americans in space in the early 1950s.
Hawk quickly volunteers to sacrifice himself, hoping that he will be able to land himself on the moon to fulfill his life's dream. Frank successfully pilots the shuttle to reenter orbit but with too fast a speed. The mission is quickly put under secrecy. As they train and undergo examinations, Hawk is found to have and given only eight months to live, but is still considered flight-worthy.
