Passengers is a movie about people who have chosen to move to another planet, but something goes wrong with the pod that Jim is in which leads him to be awake 90 years before he was supposed to be. This movie follows the life of Jim on that ship, and we see the decisions he makes. I recommend this movie to people who are into adventure, science-fiction, and some romance. This movie has a lot of suspense, and I was always wondering what would happen next. The plot of the movie is great, and the actors did really well. I rate this movie a 3/5. @Khutoria of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This movie was about 30 minutes too long.If you have the patience to last through the first hour then last bit of movie is good.All three of us had to take a break at the hour mark and we were all wondering when something was going to happen. I have watched a lot of movies lately and this one among the least liked!
5 out of 10

This film works because Chris Pratt, the male lead, is young and handsome. However, if a 65 year old, overweight male woke up a young female passenger would the same scenario play out? I understand this is fiction, but it plays into the damsel in distress/Stockholm Syndrome dysfunction.

Directed by Morten Tyldum in 2016, this Amercian SF drama depicts the struggle of two people who, awakened ninety years too early from an induced hibernation, save a malfunctioned spaceship that transports thousands of passengers, travelling to a distant colony planet.
Although the special effects appear great, the first half of the story seems tedious and too slow-paced and the storyline turns out too simple and predictable with no turns nor twists.

. A large spaceship moving along. Enters asteroid (cloud?) with out alerting crew! It's zapping force field happily does its thing but one gets through, causing a power drop that causes one hibernation bed to stop & wakes passenger Jim. He goes looking for someone in charge. Briefed by Hologram, on spaceship's destination to planet colony, a setup by Home-planets Ltd.

. Very oddly, there are no large red levers labeled "Pull in Emergency", to have system wake emergency crew to help anyone out. An obvious design flaw! Perhaps the designers were told by their statistician the chances of such being needed were 10 to power -1,000,000,000 & therefore not worth the 0.01% extra on the price of the spaceship. Jim uses large messaging device to tell Hp his plight. It displays a reply will take (75?) years.

. More oddly, despite crew & passengers all being in hibernation, the fully automated restaurant & a great many shops are all open!? Jim befriends (after a style) an algorithm driven android barkeep, upgrades himself (via break in) to King Class, plush suet. Takes up boozing. Space walks, once while very drunk & forgetting to tether to the ship! He looks very much to be Lost in Space but fortunately, the algorithm driven android barkeep is able to prevail upon an algorithm driven automated sweeping unit to go & sweep Jim back in.

. He decides to see what he can do for himself & reads up the operating manuals of the hibernation units, among other things. Learns these can't initiate hibernation - has to be done by another m/c. He decides to wake another passenger, Aurora. They enjoy a dinner date, followed by space walk - under the watchful camera of the algorithm driven automated sweeping unit.

. Aurora then gets really angry with Jim. All is not lost, however. The Electrostatic Discharge from the asteroid that got through the zapper force field has been wandering around the spaceship, upsetting systems & causing them to dysfunction. Again, none of them execute the algorithm to wake & ALERT THE CREW ! ! Perhaps this was cut, also, to save 0.01% extra on the price of the spaceship! Again, on the advice of said Statistician?!

. More systems fail. Aurora finds herself trapped in a floating big ball of water, when it floats up (or down?) from the pool.

. Hopefully, Jim & Aurora don't have to flag down any Alien Ships to get help. Especially that one that carried the Alien Eggs onto that colonized planet - then went on to give Ripley so much TROUBLE. Well, I guess I better quit here, with out issuing any spoilers. AT least I didn't have to intervene to stop anyone being stabbed. Hopefully to - this wont take 75 years to reach you guys.
