Loved this movie. Proof that they don't have to have violence, murder and gore in a movie to make it great.

I liked that movie and am glad to watch it. Still agree with most vicious comments here.
Yes, starting with - it's absolutely fable - troubleshooting , fixing and repairing would never went like that. Not mention that something so simple like hit by meteor would be easy to identify even by self-controlling services.
Of course - whatever think about possibility of long-lasting cosmic voyages - with limited resources - forget about vacuum cleaner wasting their time and energy, about barman android etc, when you weep in the space - you are really in troubles. So - cut it off - it's a fable and has nothing to do with real cosmic trips, not because of technology
So that movie is more about contemporary issues and here I agree - 30 minutes are excellent, about failure in technology and also agree that the end is getting into vaping teenage romance.
So really mixed thoughts and probably did rate a little to high ...
just because movie was stuck into my mind

I enjoyed this movie, and I think the reviewers were unfair in their assessment of both Pratt and Lawrence.

I didn't really know much about this at all before I watched it and it was a pleasant surprise. I thought it had a really intriguing premise. I loved the look of the spaceship, and I thought Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt were very believable. I enjoyed this and I was glad I was pretty oblivious about the plot beforehand. When thinking about it afterwards, some plotholes popped up, but it was a pleasant enough diversion while watching.

If you are open to watching a tale of redemption then give this sci-fi romance a chance. I really enjoyed watching what life was like on the ship and watching the characters. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it since it has gotten a lot of negative reviews. I think it needs to be seen with an open heart, because it is a movie about forgiveness and love.

Decent movie. The visuals of space and the ship are amazing. Stretched a little long for my taste and there are some plot holes but still worth watching.

Really entertaining movie and captured my imagination from the get-go. Great actors and a creative story.

Excellent and thought-provoking. They've taken an unusual plot and set it against the classic background of humanity and companionship and it works big time. Don't be put off by the futuristic setting. (I'm not a space fan) it actually adds to the intensity and punch of the theme. This film got a lot of hype and in my opinion it was well deserved. One of the best movies I've seen in months!

An excellent movie! I love how two really great actors are able to carry this entire movie from start to finish. The couple of questions of "how would he know how to do that?" were actually answered in the deleted scenes - one of the few times I think they should have rethought what hit the cutting room floor.

In the first 30 minutes there is a glimmer of hope that this movie might raise and address interesting questions about technology. Once Jennifer Lawrence is roused from her hibernation chamber though PASSENGERS descends into vapid teenage romance. The viewer is allowed to ogle over many shots of Lawrence's booty and bosom and Chris Pratt's biceps and buttocks. The fantasy here is to be traveling through space at one-half light speed aboard a luxury hotel with lots of cute robots to serve you all while getting your ashes hauled by a gorgeous guy or gal (depending upon your sexual preference).
