Consensus: Passengers proves Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence work well together -- and that even their chemistry isn't enough to overcome a fatally flawed story.

Ironically, Passengers is at its most evocative when capturing a state of utter tedium.

If the filmmakers had delved into the direness of their situation and mined it for more than just a grand-scale lovers' spat in outer space, the movie might have been more than a sleek, well-designed curiosity.

Passengers takes what could have been an interesting debate about consent and glosses it over with cheesy romance and problematic sex.

Fixing the malfunctioning Avalon requires addressing the fundamental damage, but the film seems to argue that the same does not hold true for the human heart.

Disappointing at best, problematic at worst.

Passengers is not technically a horror film, but that's the mode in which it would work best. Instead, it's a predictable space-saving drama, one whose big twist is both not so big at all and its ultimate undoing.

Passengers, a fairy tale set aboard a luxury spaceliner, has billion-dollar ideas and five-cent guts.

James Berardinelli

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.

An entertaining but somewhat corny sci-fi fantasy romance film with aspirations to be a deep thinking film.

Big money behind big special effects tends to suggest a big story. Nope, not here. Instead this huge edifice is like one of those over huge luxury condos… More

Stupid? Maybe a little. Also, acting apparently isn't a craft that has thrived in the interstellar future: the most effective parts seem to arrive only… More

One of the film's problems has been its marketing. It gave away too much from the middle of the film and implied a much more action packed movie. The… More

Full of the worst clichés you can think of, expository dialogue and cheesy references (even to The Shining, for no good reason), this is an immoral and horribly… More

Over a year ago when I began reading the synopsis for Passengers, my interested continually blossomed into a flat-out must-see film. One of my favourite films… More
