Amazon.com

Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway leads an impressive cast in this supernatural-tinged thriller from director Rodrigo Garcia (Things You Can Tell By Just Looking at Her). Hathaway is typically fine as a novice therapist assigned to the survivors of a horrific plane crash; all are traumatized save one (Patrick Wilson, Watchmen), who exudes a newfound joie de vivre as well as a serious yen for Hathaway. As the mismatched pair grows closer, the survivors begin to disappear, spurring Hathaway into an investigation into what exactly transpired during the doomed flight. Though the two leads are a photogenic pair, they’re continually underserved by the script, which serves up an alarming array of red herrings and false steps; Garcia does his best to impart the same sort of layered, multi-character structure to Passengers he brought to his arthouse dramas like Nine Lives, but the material is too thin and derivative to afford him much traction. The terrific supporting cast, which includes Andre Braugher, Dianne Wiest, Clea Duvall, David Morse, and, appropriately enough, William B. Davis--The X-Files’ Cancer Man--is also left stranded by the script. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

While helping a handful of plane crash survivors cope with their grief, young psychologist Claire Summers (2008 Best Actress, Oscar® nominee Anne Hathaway, Rachel Getting Married) begins to uncover conflicting accounts of the accident. At first, Claire believes that trauma is behind her patients' wildly different stories - until the survivors mysteriously begin disappearing one by one. Now Eric (Patrick Wilson, Lakeview Terrace), a surviving passenger she has grown dangerously close to, may hold the key to unlocking the truth about the tragic incident in this shocking psychological thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars first class and very moving! April 24, 2009
Format:DVD
Have to completely disagree with the put-down reviews below. This was an excellent and moving film with a very strong performance from Anne Hathaway inparticular. Be careful what you read below - one reviewer gives away the whole plot (why people do this in reviews I'll never know...). The film does leave you wondering what is really going on and it is NOT predictable. People tend to say this AFTER they have seen a film, I notice! Anyway, if you like any of Anne Hathaway's work, you will like this - and if you don't, then try this one out - you may be pleasantly surprised. Anne Hathaway has perhaps fallen into the same trap as many other excellent actresses in that she is type-cast over and over in fairly 'blah' roles (eg in films such Ella Enchanted, Bride Wars or Devil Wears Prada), roles which do not allow her to display her acting talents to their fullest. Passengers fortunately, is a film that does let us see what Anne is capable of and hopefully she will do other films of a more serious nature in the future, as she can most certainly carry them.

As an aside, Sandra Bullock comes to mind as someone who was (is?) in a similar postion to Anne. I have always felt that she has remarkable acting talent and it is only in recent years that I have really seen it coming out in her films, Premonition being a fine example (and the Lakehouse - though to a much lesser degree).

addendum - having watched Passengers about 3 times now, I would most certainly bump it up to 5 stars and also recommend the extremely moving soundtrack. This film is of a much, much deeper nature than it may first appear and is one of those few films that I can say has 'touched' me inside. I feel this is due to a combination of the film's subject matter, the score and Anne Hathaway's very powerful performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good film with an ending that will shock you March 7, 2010
Format:DVD
Passengers may not be the most memorable or original film I've ever seen; but it's actually rather well done and I liked the convincing acting of both Anne Hathaway and Patrick Wilson in their roles as the main characters. The cinematography and the choreography work wonders for the film; and the casting was very well done. The action flows along at a good pace although the script and the footage could have been edited down a few minutes to make the action tighter and the film a better one.

When the film starts, we meet a young psychologist named Claire (Anne Hathaway) who takes on the responsibility for running group therapy for the handful of survivors of a horrific plane crash. Her boss, Perry (Andre Braugher) believes it would be a good assignment for Claire to get her "out of (her) comfort zone." Claire must help them talk about their grief and pain to get over their post traumatic stress and "find out the truth."

Once the group starts, Claire meets the survivors and the group includes Norman (Don Thompson), Shannon (Clea DuVall) and Dean (Ryan Robbins). However, members of the group start to miss therapy sessions; and Claire slowly begins to believe that they are missing persons and not merely dropping out of therapy. Claire and other people in the group are also uncomfortable when they notice a stranger staring in from the outside at the group; and Claire's relationship with the airline representative Arkin (David Morse) is not exactly going well as he is clearly holding things back from her, possibly to avoid the airline being held liable for the accident.

In addition, one more survivor, Eric (Patrick Wilson), gives Claire a surprise when he comes off as rather happy and upbeat about life despite the terrible crash he just experienced.

Format:DVD
EDIT: I just finished watching "Lost." The movie is basically a replica of the show. It's still a good movie but not as "original" as I thougth.

I was sitting in my college dorm, browsing Netflix, looking for a good movie to stream. I'd never heard of "Passengers," and was pretty hesitant to watch it. I was expecting your typical "airplane crash" mystery flic and for a while it seemed to be moving in that direction. Soon enough however, I found myself in a lost state, unsure of what was happening--the pieces were there but something just wasn't "right." For the intellectual kind, this movie will keep your brain going--not hard to understand at all but incredibly intriguing. The surprise ending literally left me is a special kind of shock that I can most definitely appreciate.

Typically I'd get into detail about camera angles and soundtrack score--elements which were all greatly constructed and implemented in this film--but I am in genuine and sincere awe of the storyline and overall concept of the film. After reading the previous reviews, I guess it may not be for the typical moviegoer but if you give it a chance you'll certainly develop a GREAT appreciation for it. The film, however, was amazing at keeping my attention and interest.

I think I have a new favorite... you might too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Concentrate on the Title March 2, 2010
Format:DVD
On the surface PASSENGERS is the story about airplane crash following which the airline hires a psychologist Dr Claire Summers (Anne Hathaway) to hold group therapy sessions for those PTSD survivors. The group is strange, not so much for the crash but more for the lives they've lived leading up to the crash - or so Claire believes. Claire is particularly drawn to Eric (Patrick Wilson) who seems somehow above the emotional trauma and indeed begins to 'court' Claire with requests for house calls, incidents that lead to a romance. Gradually the survivors in Claire's therapy group disappear and Claire is made suspicious of the cause of the accident, a fact that disturbs the airline person Arkin (David Morse). Eric's strange behavior as well as the appearance of the odd character Toni (Dianne Wiest) and the counsel from Claire's colleague Perry (Andre Braugher) begin to unravel a mystery that is finally made clear in the closing moments of the film. To say more would be to spoil the ending.

PASSENGERS is not a great movie but it is a fairly good and well-acted suspense/romance drama. The cast is solid but the direction by Rodrigo García of the Swiss cheese script by Ronnie Christensen is shaky: the premise is good but the getting there is full of potholes and road kill. Nevertheless it is a good little diversion of a film for a rainy night. And the actors do their very best to make it better than it is. The pleasure comes after the ending is revealed and sets up the audience for some serious introspection. Grady Harp, March 10
