It’s a great-looking film with an original idea. Watch it for its stars but it won’t have an astronomical impact on you.

Passengers Story: Two passengers of a spaceship are prematurely awoken from their medically induced hibernation. But they soon realize that there’s a ruder awakening in store.​

Passengers Review: Two strangers, infinite space and 90 years on the clock. If that doesn’t intrigue a sci-fi fan, little else will.

For a time when sci-fi movies are a dime a dozen, Passengers at least gets its plot right. There are no complications of wars between galaxies or superheroes in space. Instead, it’s simply about a man and a woman bound by helplessness and hope.

Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) are two of the 5000 passengers aboard the starship Avalon, headed for an earth-like planet, Homestead II. They’re programmed to hibernate for 120 years in their sleeping pods, but are woken unexpectedly with about 90 years to spare. With no one else but each other and a robotic bartender, Arthur (Michael Sheen) for company, they must either figure out a way to go back to sleep or live out their whole lives on the spaceship as it rips through space.

Pratt’s boyish charm, Lawrence’s goofiness and their banter with the bartender - these are ingredients for greatness. Add to that a plot twist in the beginning that the team have managed to keep under wraps. You’d think it’d be a breath of fresh air!

But Passengers suffocates under the pressure of its own premise. Once everything is set up in the first 25-or-so minutes, the story, just like its protagonists, gets stuck in space with nowhere to go. It digresses, forcing two human characters into becoming heroes, nay, proficient astronauts!

Its dialogue fails it miserably; the lovable characters could have been given smarter lines, but instead, we’re stuck with obvious observations like, “Oh no, I woke up too soon!” Yeah, we know.

Passengers is Hollywood’s answer to the star-studded Bollywood blockbusters of the 70s, where anything and everything could happen because it was happening to big stars on screen. Here too, it’s mostly only Pratt and Lawrence who manage to keep you in your seat.

It’s a great-looking film with an original idea. Watch it for its stars but it won’t have an astronomical impact on you.

this movies endures so much possibilities in part two (if they intend to make )<br/>due to the appearance of andy garcia in the end of the movie ...first they could be still alive according to relativity and time was so slow to make them grow old second they maybe dead but they have kids specially they mention that there is midwifery among passengers and they might used her assistance to have kid and then put her in the hibernate pot in the infirmary to continue her journey....and in all cases the partender will have alot of tales to tell ..... any way its agreat movie and interesting idea hope to see another part

awesome movie with some flaws: <br/>1st flaw: He woke up about 30 yrs after they left the earth. The ship was flying at half the speed of light. It means that the earth was 15 LY back. But when he sends the message back to earth, computer shows that it would take 53 years to get the response back from earth. I can't understand this... It should take only 30 yrs (at the earliest)... <br/><br/>2nd Flaw: They are traveling at half the light speed. So, according to Einstein's relativity, the time must slow down for them, at least by half. E.g. If they were expected to live for 70-80 yrs, they should have lived on that ship for atleast 140-180yrs. In that case, they could have easily reached the other planet (which is 90 yrs away). This relativity effect is shown in "INTERSTELLAR". I think the director had not done the study of space travel before making this movie. Otherwise, the visual effects and the story and the acting was superb. Nice Movie.
