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

The film is a little too influenced by M. Night Shyamalan, which might be the wrong way to go given the reaction to his recent films.

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.

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

Solely predicated on its twist ending.

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.

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?

The actors make a noble effort, but Passengers turns out to be just another dud in the genre of revisionist mysteries that have been messing with our heads since Haley Joel Osment saw dead people.

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.

Anyone who doesn't see the film's "twist" ending coming from miles away just hasn't seen enough thrillers.

The biggest shock (aside from seeing how arbitrarily movies are chosen for theatrical release) is provided by an intrusively blown newspaper.

Cinema em Cena

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.

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

Passengers is not a film I would recommend that you rush right out to see. However, it will make a good rental on a snowy night this winter

This middlebrow tone poem aims for ambiguity but often veers into soporific, suspending answers (and often, viewer interest) en route to an ending that explains all.

In addition to aspiring to be a sensitive portrait of emotional healing, it's also a supernatural mystery, a romantic comedy, a family weepy and a corporate conspiracy drama. One plot might have satisfied audiences; fractions won't.

She sees dead people, maybe. Stealth movie starring Anne Hathaway as the world's worst trauma counselor slipped into a few theatres without warning. Now you've been warned.
