EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Dec 27, 2002; Movie Rated: R; Genres: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; With: Wanda De Jesus and Clint Eastwood; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Eastwood's been playing the aging yet able cop/cowboy/astronaut for more than a decade now, but as a former FBI man coming back from a heart transplant to track a serial killer, he's starting to test our patience. Part of the problem is Eastwood the director's slow, steady pacing, which gives us too much time to consider the plot's far-fetched contrivances -- among them a romance with a thirtysomething waitress (Wanda De Jesus) whose sister was the hero's heart donor and the killer's most recent victim. Space Cowboys was more believable.
