Buckle up for the ride.

Surprisingly enjoyed it. Managed to almost flawlessly pull off a perfect blend of sci-fi, drama, romance, and adventure. Sure it could've been a bit more of a thriller, but for what it was, awesome film.

Fell Short

I was quite looking forward to this movie, the trailer looked good but it really just fell short. What seemed like a Martian ish type story it really just couldn't get it together, treading water for over half of the film then a blip of action. Reasonable SFX but I came away disappointed.

Lost in space

We quite enjoyed this movie although I was reminded of Matt Damon's Marshan at times, with the whole lost in space idea and struggling to survive millions of light years away from earth. None the less, it was different and husband & I thought it was worth at least 4 stars.

Much better than the critics would have you believe

It seems that every critic is jumping on the same bandwagon here and that is the overly-sensitive one. Most have focused on the plot point that brings the two leads together, calling it creepy, leery and morally inept. What they haven't done is had a good healthy introspective look and consider what they might have done in Chris Pratt's character, Jim's...

What could have been a great sci-fi ends up a rom-com space opera mashup.

The term mashup is not usually a compliment. It means mixing different genres in a way that looks interesting, gets a laugh, or makes a mess. It is unlikely the sci-fi rom-com melodrama Passengers (2016) intended to be a mashup but that is the result. If it stayed on-track as sci-fi, all the ingredients are present for an outstanding film but box-office...

Not enough suspense

For a movie like this to work, there needs to be some stronger, ongoing sense of suspense ... and really all the tension that came through in the last act needed to be in greater evidence throughout the whole story. An okay light hearted romantic romp, but I think the movie aspired to be more than that; to be more dramatic. Solid performances, especially...

There’s only one place for Passengers to go, and once it gets there, Jon Spaihts’s script runs out of gas.

As sci-fi, it feels like a professionally produced hybrid that lacks its own identity. As a romance, it never fully earns your investment.

Is so anodyne, so frightened of the ethically troubling opportunities inherent in the setup that it just ends up feeling forgettable and silly.

"Passengers" increasingly succumbs to timidity and begins shrinking into a bland science-fiction adventure whose feats of daring and skill feel stale and secondhand.

Sweet but inconsequential at its best, overly contrived at most other times, "Passengers" takes too long to get to its too inevitable plot points to truly entertain.

Its heavy-handed mix of life-or-death exigencies and feel-good bromides finally feels like a case of more being less.

Titanic amongst the stars — this is a touching, heartfelt tale of loss and love for the Gravity generation.
