June 26, 2017
Passengers takes what could have been an interesting debate about consent and glosses it over with cheesy romance and problematic sex.
March 23, 2017
Jennifer Lawrence and Christ Pratt are both extremely likable actors, and the situation they're in is actually a pretty interesting one. One that would have been just as interesting without the icky stalker scenario.
February 21, 2017
Not only is it a terrible film, but it is built upon the most disturbing premise I've encountered in the cinema in a long time.

Passengers is yet another example of a film that falsely beckons a certain premise in its promotions, yet eventually delivers something far less interesting.
January 6, 2017
A film that lacks the human and philosophical depth of Gravity or Arrival. [Full review in Spanish]
January 3, 2017
It's hard to know what's worse here; the jaw-dropping misogyny on show or the lazy, ridiculously convenient world building that is there purely to service the plot.
January 6, 2017
The questionable decision to turn what is essentially a kidnapping into a romance without debating the consequences doesn't allow us to fully sink our teeth into the tale.
December 22, 2016
Passengers is one of the most disappointing misses of 2016.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
December 23, 2016
Passengers is terrible, failing to commit itself to anything other than convincing its viewers that a woman should settle for any man who is even vaguely nice to them.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 3, 2017
A dumb, poorly written piece of CGI spectacle, the eye candy on display sullied by the sexism that riddles its minimal plot.
Full Review | Original Score: Strongly Not Recommended
December 23, 2016
It feels as though it settled for mediocrity rather than reaching for something a bit special.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 21, 2016
Despite decent chemistry between the leads and a fascinating concept, Passengers is a bland, unsatisfying sci-fi story that fails to connect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 4, 2017
A movie that has visual and sound power and manages to entertain during the great part of its footage. However, it causes a certain sense of disappointment at not being able to exploit the enormous potential of the story. [Full review in Spanish]

December 27, 2016
Unfortunately, after presenting interesting questions, the script decides not to explore further, and to walk the easiest and most retouched route: a third act of Hollywood action. The trip is entertaining, but the final result is not very satisfactory.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 22, 2016
Think "Event Horizon," only less romantic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 29, 2016
An all-round flimsy scripts undermines what was at one point this year one of the most anticipated sci-fi films of 2016.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 27, 2016
A movie with a stupid ending, controversial and well intentioned but badly formulated, wasting the potential of its actors in a film that deserves to be named in the worst of the year. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
December 23, 2016
With a distinct lack of chemistry and a director without the know-how to find a deeper meaning in story, the shoddy foundation of the premise quickly collapses.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 20, 2016
Passengers hides an insidious message amidst the Hollywood gloss, and the film suffers from mixed messages and too many plotholes.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
December 20, 2016
Passengers goes from having a clever premise to an unethical one that romanticizes stalking in a Stockholm Syndrome love story, and somehow the ending is even worse than everything that comes before it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
