Passengers — An awesome sci-fi with a great story — 9*/10

  • Overall: Amazing. The preview doesn't do it justice, but at least, it doesn't sell any of the punches.
  • Who is it for? Everyone, unless you really hate sci-fi.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Known actors: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne.
  • Cameos: Andy Garcia.
  • Setting: Outer space.
  • Style: Slick sci-fi about space travel with some romantic development.
  • Pacing: Perfect.
  • Intro: Slow. It gets you right in so smoothly you're not even aware of it. Then you forget you're watching a movie.
  • Story: Although there are some tense action moments, this is about the chain of events, even more than about the characters themselves. This is about their life and their predicament. A solid little intrigue. The only real negative point would be the apparition of the "lie". Fortunately this doesn't take over the whole scenario, which is as it should be.
  • Ending: Quite amazing if somewhat predictable.
  • Epilogue: Short, fun and unexpected. Great.
  • Dialogs: Well structured and very interesting. This is the engine of the film.
  • Characters: Solidly built with nice depth and realistic attitude.
  • Acting: Amazing.
  • Visuals: Fucking superb. Intensely beautiful on the big screen.
  • Special Effects: Perfect.
  • Afterthoughts: I couldn't have asked for more. It's a must see.
