Passengers movie reviewThis is a quick movie review of Passengers, starring Chris Pratt (Starlord! LOL) and Jennifer Lawrence. The film is directed by Morten Tyldum. (The Imitation Game, Headhunters) off a script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange).

Chris Pratt movies, like Passengers and more.

Passengers starts out with viewers being introduced to the Avalon, a space ship shuttling five thousand sleeping space pioneers and two hundred and fifty-eight crew to the next planet Earth, because Earth is “too crowded or too overpriced.” We watch the ship, a fully automated ship, on its 120-year journey, while it deals with issues as they come up.

But of course something does go wrong, when with Jim’s (Pratt) sleep chamber and he wakes up 90 years too early. At first he tries everything he can think of until he finally figures out how to send a message to the parent company, only to find out just how long that message will take to get to them, a reply back. We watch him spend a year tooling around the ship until he starts to get bored, going stir crazy, and during one of his bored musings, he encounters Aurora (Lawrence), asleep in her own sleep chamber.

Jennifer Lawrence movies.

And suddenly he has a quandary… he wants to wake her, but should he? No, he shouldn’t. But he “needs” to. His resolved to do the right thing fails and he wakes her, then runs, so she’ll think she was another malfunction.

Things evolve as you think they might, being the only couple on a giant ship, but then, things start to go wrong with the ship, first in little steps, then bigger steps. things start to go wrong and suddenly it’s a doomed fight for survival.

Guardians of the Galaxy Toys, Music, Blu-rays and more – Guardians of the Galaxy (directed by James Gunn) has returned […]
