The film's greatest sin is its intrinsic dullness.
January 6, 2017
The production design here is spectacular and utopian - a delirious idea of a future that's perfectable, a world without blemish.
December 23, 2016
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.

Lawrence is, once more, simply great in this, just so vivid and fascinating to watch, her idiosyncratic face our total focus, her athleticism outdoing Pratt's: she is completely the life of the film.

Passengers, a fairy tale set aboard a luxury spaceliner, has billion-dollar ideas and five-cent guts.
June 25, 2019
Passengers is morally reprehensible and functionally inert. It is anti-entertaining and potent nightmare fuel for anyone who dares think women have agency outside of finding a nice man.
May 4, 2019
There are enough twists and turns from the get go to keep audiences intrigued and to provide an enjoyable, entertaining movie outing.
March 22, 2019
The movie doesn't have the guts to delve into the intensity and heartache that the setup demands and instead settles for absurdity and clichés.
March 14, 2019
Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence have terrific chemistry.
March 10, 2019
One can either make a thriller about existential threats in the emptiness of space or love lost to time, but this film lacks the skill needed to successfully blend the two.
March 9, 2019
It offers an entertaining two hours but the characters fail to provoke emotional attachment, so it's likely to fade from memory rapidly.
March 2, 2019
If the filmmakers had focused more on the story, instead of betting on the two hugely-popular leads to carry the film, this movie would be so much better.
February 13, 2019
The film is flat and lifeless, squandering a decent concept, an excellent cast and an engaging aesthetic.
February 5, 2019
Despite all its bumbling adultness, Passengers does the pop-entertainer basics right: it transports us into its world, no matter how outrageous or flawed.
January 23, 2019
Passengers offers a sci-fi romance with a thought-provoking twist.
November 27, 2018
Jim, woken 90 years too soon on a space voyage, then wakes up Aurora, for company and possibly better coffee on her first class ticket. The stalker-in-space love story premise is very troubling; luckily Michael Sheen's android barman is terrific.
November 1, 2018
Passengers is a movie that starts out intriguing enough before descending towards some of the creepiest storytelling decisions in a long time but with a desperate need to somehow justify the unjustifiable.
November 1, 2018
Passengers is not the Hollywood disaster the mainstream critics would have you believe, but it is a flawed film hampered under the weight of its scope.
October 25, 2018
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt hold up their end, but the script for Passengers ultimately fails us all.
