On a routine journey through space to a new home, two passengers, sleeping in suspended animation, are awakened 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions.
As Jim and Aurora face living the rest of their lives on board, with every luxury they could ever ask for, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction… until they discover the ship is in grave danger. With the lives of 5000 sleeping passengers at stake, only Jim and Aurora can save them all.
“Xabiso” (Guest) – One of the best Sci-Fi movies I’ve seen all year.
Jennifer Lawrence as Aurora was brilliant! She can never do no wrong. Chris Pratt did his thing as Jim Preston too.
I really enjoyed seeing all the technology showed and used in the movie. The spaceship was amazing with all the suites it has. It looks like a 5-star hotel.
I thought the swimming pool was nice as well. Very modern.
It is also a great love story to see. The connection between Jim Preston and Aurora in the movie felt very real and intimate.
Michael Sheen as Arthur the android barman was impressive and entertaining in his role as well.
Laurence Fishburne as Gus did a wonderful job and played a key role in assisting all the passengers on the ship, but I think he could’ve been given a bigger role.
Besides that, it’s a good Sci-Fi and a brilliant romantic story to go and watch.
“That Nomad Shad” – Passengers is a film in which Hollywood milks the names of Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence for a big budget sci-fi adventure. So prepare for Chris Pratt Chris Pratting and Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Lawarencing…in space.
The movie kicks off to a really good start posing some really intriguing ethical questions. It’s deeper than the Mariana trench, I was gripped.
This combines with some stunning visuals to really get you engrossed in all the drama. And my boy Chris’s performance had me excited.
But as the plot plays out the film becomes…bland.
Soon Passengers plays on all the conventional romantic and survival genre trope. There’s nothing really exciting to play on. WHERE WAS THE GODDAMN ETHICAL DEBATE YOU SET UP!
The final third of the film plays out like any Hollywood blockbuster. It’s predictable and boring. There’s nothing exciting about it. Honestly, I just wanted it to end.
Sadly, this film relies too much on the rep of Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence to carry it and ends up becoming a boring version of Titanic in Space.
Let us have your thoughts on the movie.
