Film Review - Spaceman (2024)

SPACEMAN 3

We have two sides of Adam Sandler these days. There’s the man who enjoys screen silliness and paid vacations, recently seen in “Murder Mystery 2” and “Hubie Halloween,” also taking a voice role in last holiday’s “Leo.” And there’s the actor side of Sandler, where he challenges himself to play various parts with focus on extracting previously unseen dramatic potential, found in “Hustle” and “Uncut Gems.” “Spaceman” has Sandler in serious mode, going across the galaxy with this tale of a cosmonaut experiencing the weight of his conscience while moving toward a celestial event, joined by a special passenger. Based on a book by Jaroslav Kalfar, “Spaceman” almost entirely relies on Sandler to communicate deep emotional wounds and physical activity, and the star is up for the acting challenge, delivering a meaningful performance in a somewhat elusive film.
