Critic Reviews for Passengers
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
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Passengers
Uneven exposition just about murders this suspense piece (with a wee love story on the side) that seems to wait too long for a twist ending. Luckily the charisma of the leads carries the day until payoff time.
This movie was an okay movie, good cast and well acted, however it is rather slow and what saves this movie in order for me to say its a good movie is the ending! its a nice twist and quite a surprise so may be worth the watch!
So Bradley Cooper - I mean Patrick Wilson - is in everything. There's nothing wrong with any of the performances, including Wilson and Hathaway's. Morse is always great, the gentle, soulful giant that he is. But I have to agree with some of the critics who remark that the film seems like a distant, uninteresting mystery until the very end, when everything comes together ... and after a certain point, even that wasn't much of a surprise. Unlike other films with remarkable endings (I'm thinking specifically of Angel Heart), the payoff is not worth sitting through the rest of the journey.
