Movie review: Passengers

passengersThere are many twists and turns along the way, but the film’s screenplay doesn’t really seem to care much about deep moral reflection or even advanced logic. Some genuine moments of peril will appear, only to be dispensed with solutions that are so blatantly contrived that any real tension is quickly dissipated.

The film is not without its small pleasures, including the beautiful set design and likable performances from the two lead actors. There are also a couple of moments of satirical humor that recall the best episodes of The Simpsons or Futurama.
