Critic Consensus: Passengers proves Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence work well together -- and that even their chemistry isn't enough to overcome a fatally flawed story.

Critic Reviews for Passengers

All Critics (224) | Top Critics (41)

Ironically, Passengers is at its most evocative when capturing a state of utter tedium.

Fixing the malfunctioning Avalon requires addressing the fundamental damage, but the film seems to argue that the same does not hold true for the human heart.

Passengers, a fairy tale set aboard a luxury spaceliner, has billion-dollar ideas and five-cent guts.

If the filmmakers had delved into the direness of their situation and mined it for more than just a grand-scale lovers' spat in outer space, the movie might have been more than a sleek, well-designed curiosity.

Disappointing at best, problematic at worst.

Passengers is an odd movie but its central questions and dilemmas are compelling and there's enough here of substance for the impressions to linger. Problems aside, it's a journey worth taking.

Audience Reviews for Passengers

Stupid? Maybe a little. Also, acting apparently isn't a craft that has thrived in the interstellar future: the most effective parts seem to arrive only when the actors aren't actually on screen. Although "Passengers" has its problems and doesn't quite deliver on the social and ethical issues it attempts to drive, the film has spectacular visual effects and is a real thrill ride.

Full of the worst clichés you can think of, expository dialogue and cheesy references (even to The Shining, for no good reason), this is an immoral and horribly corny little romance that wants us to feel sympathy towards a selfish bastard as he proves to a woman that he is the "best" thing for her.

Big money behind big special effects tends to suggest a big story. Nope, not here. Instead this huge edifice is like one of those over huge luxury condos that're empty in every American town, pretending as if there's a local economy huge enough to support such. This leaves it up to the charisma of the 3 leads to sustain this and, credit to them all, they almost pull it off.
