CAST & CREW
“ Passengers” is a Hollywood space thriller directed by Morten Tyldum. The movie is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Stephen Hamel, Michael Maher and Ori Marmur. Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne and Andy García play the main cast.
The film starts with a starship Avalon carrying 5000 passengers to a planet called Homestead II. The journey is set for 120 years. There are 200 crew members on board with the passengers. When the autopilot is on, the people in the starship are induced to sleep, as there was a minor collision. When everyone was in the hibernation mode, Jim woke up due to one more crash in the system. He realizes that they are traveling four months faster. In his viewpoint, they will reach the place in 90 years instead of 120 years. With the food and the entertainment facilities available, Jim manages to pass a year. He gets the company of Arthur, a bartender. While he was roaming, he finds a beautiful girl Aurora. Jim, who fell in love with her at first sight, makes her get out of hibernation. Similarly, another collision in the system awakens Gus, an officer of the deck. As Aurora was manually disturbed from the hibernation pod, she blames Jim. When Gus, Jim and Aurora are working to fix the problem, Gus faces a severe health issue, as he woke up due to the failure of the hibernation pods. Before he dies, he gives his ID badge to repair the starship. Did they repair the starship? What happens to the crew members and the passengers? The answers take us to the rest of the story.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt looked so energetic and had delivered good performances. Thomas Newman’s background music blends with the story.
Morten Tyldum had chosen an excellent script from Jon Spaihts. Flawless direction and the perfect artist selection take the film to heights.
What’s Not There?
It is a good film to watch. When the leads become the accidental astronauts, people who watch the film laugh. However, these kinds of transformations are not new to the Hollywood films. If you watch the film without logic, then it seems to be a good film.
