Passengers is a science fiction about Jim Preston and Aurora Lane two passengers on Avalon a space ship on a 120-year journey to another planet when the ship collided with an asteroid and wreck havoc on the space ship. The space ship is capable of fixing itself but the asteroid is big enough where the space ship was not capable to fully fix itself.
The accident caused the hibernation pod of Jim Preston to malfunction and woke him up 90 years early. With an android as a companion, Jim got bored after a year and decided to wake up Aurora as well. Jim and Aurora were forced to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction of the space ship as it teeters on the brink of collapse, putting in jeopardy their lives as well as the lives of thousands of passengers.
Magnificent musical score and production design is sleek with a plot that is easy to follow. The reason why Avalon malfunctioned is fully explained but the movie itself became a lovers’ spat in outer space where Aurora is so upset when she learned she was awakened by Jim Preston just so he has company during the long voyage.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt have very good chemistry and their story is about bravery, forgiveness and love. The movie focused more on the relationship between the two main characters and not about the voyage itself; there are no monsters and spilled blood that critics would expect on most sci-fi. It is not for everyone but do not understand the negative reviews; flawed story? it’s a sci-fi. Passengers is a sci-fi movie for adults.
