Passengers Reviews

November 10, 2008
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
