Passengers (2016)

Next week Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt’s wide release is released into the cinemas. The film had a $120m budget, and is looking to take $120-150m domestically in the US and $350-$400m worldwide. What’s lacklustre about Passengers isn’t just that the movie is short on surprise, but that it’s like a castaway love story set in the world’s largest, emptiest shopping mall in space. Whilst it is a Titanic amongst the stars, and don’t get me wrong, it is moving, however for a two hour film it did make me wonder weather or not to leave half way through. I stayed however because I knew I would be bugging myself afterwards for 1: Not seeing what will happen in the end and 2: Wasting £12. If you’re for your final film of the year, I would recommend Rogue One, just because it is more exciting and interesting than Passengers. If you’re not a Star Wars fan then go and see Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed, and if you’re not the sort of person who likes that sort of action film, maybe go and see Ben Affleck’s Oscar hopeful Live By Night. I would not recommend seeing Passengers but go if you want to see Chris Pratt or Jennifer Lawrence.
