Surreal ensemble chemistry that rarely subsides, serving up a deliriously potent supernatural plane crash yarn that should sufficiently frazzle viewer nerves on impact.

A Hitchcockian thriller that'll keep you guessing till the last reel

...the least effective entry within Rodrigo Garcia's otherwise impeccable filmography...

The surprise ending isn't as shocking as those of Jacob's Ladder or The Sixth Sense -- two stellar examples of the genre -- but it's still dramatically potent.

Passengers is a haunting little movie that builds ever so slowly to an electrifying climax.

With a storytelling sensibility more common in foreign films than mainstream ones, Passengers is a compact, thought-provoking tale that challenges the viewer while shedding light on one's own life, and how he or she has chosen to lead it.

spends too much time concealing its secret to fully realize its potential as a human drama.

Initial intrigue turns into tedium and frustration as the plot heads into the territory of absurd.

It's a blurred pass at suspense and hesitant smooches, but with Hathaway and Wilson around to carry most of the workload, at least it's well acted.

Filmmakers have the power to change reality on us at their whim, but if they do so in ways that make us feel tricked and cheated, then this is an unforgiveable rip-off.

Screenwize

An uneven and lifeless film that shifts from saccharine romance to supernatural thriller as Anne Hathaway helps a handful of survivors of a plane crash deal with the strange effects of their trauma.

Urban Cinefile

The plane isn't the only thing that crashes in this ambitiously conceived mystery drama with conspiracy theories, central romance & supernatural elements. You know there is something seriously wrong when the resolution is more satisfying than the journey.

Este primeiro grande tropeço na carreira de García embaraça pelo roteiro batido e pela falta de ritmo da narrativa, não sendo salvo nem mesmo pelo charme de Hathaway.

It is dark, depressing and seems to be built entirely around a twist ending that feels less like a surprise and more like relief.

Even though Anne Hathaway is good, it's no reason to get really emotionally invested in her quest

When a picture asks you to puzzle through a chain of ambiguous clues to a surprise solution, you have a right to expect something better than watered-down Shyamalan.

Did Hathaway know when she signed to this that it would be released just in time to embarrass her during her accolades for Rachel Getting Married?

Passengers is a supernatural thriller so mechanically inept and lacking in suspense that it doesn't even pass muster as lowbrow Halloween-ready entertainment.
