Passengers


Chris Pratt plays one of 5,000 hibernating passengers in suspended animation on a spaceship en route to a newly colonized planet.  But a problem occurs and he is accidentally awoken early.  Passengers is an interesting, enjoyable, and refreshingly original character-driven sci-fi film that draws you in with performances by a handful of likeable actors and then, unfortunately, veers off course in its third act.  It's worth seeing if you're tired of depressing art house films and big budget action films, but I do wish it had a stronger ending.

Grade: B+

Who is this movie for?  If you'd fancy spending a few hours with Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Sheen on board a spaceship, then go for it.  I enjoyed the ride.
