Spacey doesn't pass as Darin, and everything else is flat.

More than 10-years in the making, the movie is a labor of love from Kevin Spacey, and Kate Bosworth is superb as Darin's charming wife Sandra Dee.

A two hour shoulder shrugger for those too young to even know who Bobby Darin is, and what all this fuss is about.

Many people under 40 may not even remember Bobby Darin, let alone know about his remarkable life story. Beyond the Sea may rectify that problem and stand as a wonderful tribute to an amazing talent who left us all too soon.

Kevin Spacey's dedication is clear, both in his performance as Darin and in his wonderful direction

Primarily a showcase for the considerable talents of Kevin Spacey [who] is worth the price of a ticket, but the film's structure gets in the way.

holds nothing back. When it's time for this admittedly offbeat biography to swing, the exuberance of its director-star washes away a lot of reservations.

Lessons of Darkness

Gimmicky recounting of the crooner's life.

Hollywood Report Card

Serious moments have softened edges, the film rarely feels heavy. Always interesting and entertaining, but never especially deep and certainly not dark.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

It brings little to the usual biopic formula of success followed by ego followed by breakdown, beyond general professionalism.

A showy, energetic little soap opera whose best moments come when Spacey plays it straight.

...this is a film that might -- like Coppola's One From the Heart -- develop something of a cult following

Nick Rogers
State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Kevin Spacey has made a passionless one-man show about the wrong man. It's a showcase for the star-director's pipes, no doubt, but also his pretensions.

Much like basking in front of your own image, Spacey's Beyond the Sea is a vanity project, albeit one with some interesting layers surrounding it.

This is the anti-blockbuster, the slow-burning film that tries to be as cool as the man it's about...

The musical and dance numbers in the film are excellent. The story is compelling.

Beyond the Sea is a mishmash that's interesting only as a document of Spacey's obsessions.

Much more 'Splish' than 'Splash.'

given the choice, I'll take Spacey's hilarious, spot-on impression of Christopher Walken over Bobby Darin any day

San Diego Metropolitan

A vastly entertaining vehicle that showcases Spacey's talents as a song-and-dance man as much as it explains Darin's life.
