Passengers Review - Timeout


This interstellar sci-fi misfire dreams up one of the most intriguing ‘what would you do?’ scenarios in recent movie memory – and takes it precisely nowhere. The setup is essentially ‘Red Dwarf’ meets ‘Robinson Crusoe’, as cryogenically frozen interplanetary colonist James (a bland Chris Pratt) is accidentally awoken 90 years too early by a computer malfunction, and is unable to re-enter his sleep pod. After a brief spot of cabin fever and a lot of lonely chats with barman-bot Michael Sheen, James starts to realise that he can’t survive out here alone. But if he reanimates a companion, won’t he essentially be stealing that person's life?

The story is too old to be commented.
