spends too much time concealing its secret to fully realize its potential as a human drama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Initial intrigue turns into tedium and frustration as the plot heads into the territory of absurd.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

Surreal ensemble chemistry that rarely subsides, serving up a deliriously potent supernatural plane crash yarn that should sufficiently frazzle viewer nerves on impact.
Simon Weaving
March 21, 2009
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.

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

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.
| Original Score: 2/5

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

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.
| Original Score: 1/5

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.

It's a long ride to a familiar destination.

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.

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