Genre:AdventureRecently I traveled to space with the movie Passengers. I felt like I was watching a mix of ‘lost in space’ mixed with ‘castaway’ mixed with ‘rocket man’s mixed with a live version of ‘wally.’. Passengers stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, co-staring Micheal Sheen and also Lawrence Fishburne has a small part. There is also a cameo by Andy Garcia. A space craft carrying thousands of people in the middle of traveling to a colonial world. While en route a malfunction causes a passenger, Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), to wake up with 90 years left in his voyage. Unable to get back to sleep or wake up any of the crew, he struggles with loneliness. His only companion is a robotic bartender named Arthur (Micheal Sheen). Until one day he sees Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence), still asleep in her pod. Feeling lonely he decides to get to know her through her recordings she made prior to the beginning of the voyage. Then later he decides to wake her. Aurora and Jim form a life together unbenounced to her that he woke her. Later, Gus Mancuso (Lawrence Fishburne), particular the crew wakes up after another cliche in the system. Through out the movie the cliches continue to get worse and worse. Now it’s a race against time to save the ship, the crew and the rest of the passengers . Visually stunning visual affects but sadly in my opinion that was the best thing about this film. The relationship between Pratt and Lawrence felt more like a very close friendship rather than lovers.
