Passengers is an unusual work of science fiction. It is much closer to a romantic drama as opposed to an epic space adventure. Both Lawrence and Pratt are very good as two strangers getting to know each other in a frightening and strange situation. The film also gives the fantastic Laurence Fishburne a chance to command the screen. This out of this world romance falls somewhere between the cerebral pleasures of Arrival and the popcorn thrills of Rogue One. Thankfully, the effects and the charismatic stars make this a journey that might be worth taking - even if it could have been so much more with perhaps less star power and a slightly smarter script.
