Passengers get the critical treatment ahead of official release and it falls short of wowing the critics

Space related dramas have become a genre of their own. From space exploration to being stranded in space, the visual effects and special effects development has given a boost to the space related dramas and stories.

With Gravity putting high benchmarks for all future space dramas to reach, Passengers was also a movie of the same kind, relying on two of its lead actors, Jennifer Lawrence who is fresh off her fame with the Hunger Games and X-Men franchises and Chris Pratt who has also done wonders in Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy.

The two stars went around to promote the movie and they are ready for the release of the movie as well as it draws closer. Many believed that the movie will be chalked up to Oscar buzz after its release.

The movie had to go through the critical treatment before that could be decided. The reviews from the critics are usually relied upon by theater goers to decide whether they want to spend money on watching that movie.

The critics are not thrilled about the Morten Tyldum-directed/Jon Spaihts-written sci-fi romance. The movie has been described as a three-part story which falls short of being great and lingers on being mediocre and even bad in some critics’ opinions. With spoilers, read at your own risk.

The movie starts with Jim Preston waking up on 5,000 passengers on a commercial spaceship rocketing to a colony well outside of our solar system. He wakes up 90 years too early and after realizing what had happened, he goes through all the phases of loneliness that have been depicted by movies in the past.

With Arnold, the android bartender, as his only company; he decided to wake up Aurora Lane played by Jennifer Lawrence out of her pod. They fall for each other and Jim is eventually guilty enough to come forward with what he really did to her.

She is angry at him but luckily, the ship begins to fall apart and Jim and Aurora try and save themselves and other passengers from the ultimate devastation of crashing or diminishing in mid-air.

With the special effects and Michael Sheen being considered it’s only saving grace, the movie has failed to aspire the critics. The movie’s fate will be decided by the audience. Will Pratt’s and Lawrence’s fandoms steer the movie to becoming a hit?
