Summary

Travelling through space to a new home, Jim (Pratt) and Aurora (Lawrence) are awakened 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions. They soon discover the ship has a malfunction. Only they can save all the other sleeping passengers and crew members.

Is The Plot Interesting?

The movie was a little slow in the beginning, and the ending just seemed to come out of nowhere, but I thought the idea of moving to a new planet that was 120 years away was pretty cool.

Is The Acting Good?

The acting is good! Did you expect anything different from two of the biggest actors working today? You buy into the movie because of them and they make the situation seem real.

Is The Directing Good?

Morten Tyldum had success with The Imitation Game in 2014, which I loved, so I was excited to see what he would do with Passengers. I think his approach to directing Passengers did add a little something to it.

Is The Cinematography Good?

From the very first shot I knew that I was going to love the way the movie was filmed and the overall style of the movie… and I was right! The way the movie is shot contributes to the believability of the story.

Is It Worth Watching?

If you’re a Jennifer Lawrence or Chris Pratt fan then give Passengers a watch. If you like sci-fi movies then also give this a watch because it does bring some fresh ideas into the mix. I also really loved the design of the ship and the way Passengers was filmed.

3/5

You can’t get so hung up on where you’d rather be, that you forget to make the most of where you are.
