Trivia

According to production designer Dyas, the inspiration for the ship's rotary design came from observing the seeds of sycamore trees, and how they spin like tiny helicopters as they fall. See more »

Goofs

When Aurora is trapped in the water bubble, she appears to be unable to swim out of it. Even in zero gravity Newtons third law of action equaling reaction still applies. Pushing water backwards (through swimming movements) would easily push her forward to the surface and out of the bubble. See more »

I was duped
8 January 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My initial thoughts after first seeing the trailer for Passengers was that it was a gross excuse to put Hollywood's two hottest actors on screen together. I saw that the critics had given this abysmal reviews and I wasn't surprised. I was however surprised to see that user reviews contradicted what critics had to say. Reviews contained descriptors like unexpected, great acting, suspense and the like. Well let me tell you this film was none of those. Passengers was forgettable. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good, it just was. Like I said, nothing more than an excuse to have studly guy and sexy girl on screen and cash some cheques while they were at it. The visuals were meh, the acting was passable, the script was something a fourth grader could have written. I feel like I've seen this movie 100 times in some different form. I'm only writing this to detract from the other user reviews that say to ignore what the critics are saying. Though it's not terrible it DEFINITELY isn't worth going out to see.
