Passengers is science fiction romantic film released in 2016, directed by Morten Tyldum and produced by Columbia Pictures. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, and Michael Sheen in lead roles. It tells the story of a spaceflight carrying more than five thousand people in suspended animation to a new planet, but the pods of two passengers malfunction, waking them up 90 years before the spaceship's arrival in the new world.

Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), a mechanical engineer, and Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence), a journalist, are two of the passengers woken up from their hibernation by the malfunction. With no way to go back into hibernation, the two of them find themselves alone on the spaceship. Jim struggles in his isolation until he decides to wake up Aurora, and from there, they form a connection. They explore everything that the luxury spaceship has to offer and start to bond with each other.

The spaceship, Avalon, is a marvel of technical engineering and design, with features like holographic swimming pools, a dance floor, and intelligent robots that serve every purpose. However, the romantic fling between Jim and Aurora is abruptly cut off when they discover a dangerous malfunction in one of the ship's critical systems. They realize they are the only ones who can save the passengers, but doing so will gravely endanger their lives.

The film's sets and special effects are outstanding, and the visuals are breathtaking. The sci-fi element of the story will keep viewers on the edge of their seats, while the romance between the two main characters is heartwarming. The narrative combines suspense, action, and even humor, delivering a complete cinematic experience.

The actors' performances in the movie are impeccable. Chris Pratt, who portrays Jim, perfectly captures the distress and desperation of a man stranded on this ship. The character's moral dilemma of his loneliness versus the morality of waking Aurora is convincing. Jennifer Lawrence, as Aurora, portrays a strong-willed journalist who has given up her previous life to travel to the new world. Michael Sheen, who plays the ship's android bartender, Arthur, provides witty, comedic relief whenever the situation demands it.

Passengers is a gripping tale of survival in unfamiliar, unprecedented circumstances. It will make you think about what people are willing to do when their lives, and the lives of others, are on the line. The film portrays a lot of ethical and philosophical questions, such as what happens when loneliness drives someone to make selfish choices that drastically affect others' lives?

In conclusion, Passengers is a well-acted, visually stunning, and thought-provoking sci-fi romance film that combines action, suspense, and humor into an all-around cinematic experience. It is a thrilling ride that will take viewers to the edge of their seats and give them a lot to think about.

Passengers is a 2016 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 56 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0 and a MetaScore of 41.
