Storyline Heading
The spaceship, Starship Avalon, in its 120-year voyage to a distant colony planet known as the "Homestead Colony" and transporting 5,259 people has a malfunction in two of its sleep chambers. As a result two hibernation pods open prematurely and the two passengers are awakened 90 years early.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Drama Romantic - This science fiction film is, despite the appearances of the commercials, more of a drama than an action film; only in the last third does the action ramp up. Also, Jennifer Lawrence doesn't appear until a half hour in, with Chris Pratt carrying the film from beginning to end. That said, they and Michael Sheen are the only significant characters in the film, with Laurence Fishburne and especially Andy Garcia only very briefly appearing. Adult subject matter, language, and sexual content make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Passengers is an odd movie but its central questions and dilemmas are compelling and there's enough here of substance for the impressions to linger. Problems aside, it's a journey worth taking.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average The movie's production design is polished to the point of looking chintzy, and the special effects—well, let's just say as elaborate as the movie's zero-gravity sequence is...it reminded me of how much better "2001” did it

NY Post Full Review
Below Average There are so many points along the way when the stranded-in-space drama "Passengers,” which is not a good movie, could have made different choices and become one.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average ...a chemistry-free, agonizingly slow sci-fi misfire... Star power can only go so far when the screenwriter (Jon Spaihts) and director (Morten Tyldum) snooze on the job. Lawrence and Pratt deserve better. So do audiences.
