Critic Reviews for Spaceman

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

The effort is commendable, but the execution is rocky.

August 18, 2016 | Full Review…

While a fictionalized account of Lee's career certainly held some sex, drugs & rock 'n' roll potential, the blandly pedestrian film "Spaceman" seldom delivers despite an engagingly game lead performance by Josh Duhamel.

August 18, 2016 | Full Review…

Overall the results are amiable, if also slack and talky.

August 18, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, Duhamel's bright performance ends up the highlight of the feature, which only provides a vague idea of Lee's life and love for belligerent behavior.

August 25, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

There seems like there could have been quite the stylish biopic in Rapkin's version of events, but the telling is underwhelming.

August 21, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Spaceman never goes below the surface to who [Bill] Lee really is, despite copious interior monologues presumably taken from Lee's own book.
