It all just panders too much.
October 3, 2019
Silly and disappointing, Passengers suffers from focusing on all the wrong aspects of a potentially intriguing narrative.
August 30, 2019
If toxic masculinity were a film, this would be it.

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.
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 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 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.

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.

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.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt hold up their end, but the script for Passengers ultimately fails us all.

There is a rush to get to Imagine Dragons' new song and the accompanying nebula-laden credits.
October 5, 2018
I scored it six out of 10.
August 30, 2018
A visually beautiful attempt at a vehicle for Lawrence and Pratt, but it's arguably shallow premise and uninspired plotting makes this just an idea lost in space.
August 27, 2018
To say more would be spoiling it - though it's difficult to spoil something when it's already this rotten.

Couldn't she have been the mechanic? Or could Jim have been the cook? Something to attempt a realistic representation of non-Hollywood genders?
April 23, 2018
Tyldum's picture, you see, is a prime example of how a promising story set in the wild starry yonder can crash and burn, even with some of the most likeable actors in the business.
March 8, 2018
So how do you mess this up? By making Pratt's character a reprehensible creep, making Lawrence's his unwitting victim, and expecting us to root for their romance anyway.
January 25, 2018
... what we have here is a Franken-stitching of three genres among this sci-fi genre...
December 18, 2017
Passengers is not a good trip. Director Morten Tyldum's film is a mish-mash of genres and premised on a creepy plot point.
