2.0 out of 5 starsDoesn't really succeed
Verified purchase
This movie doesn't quite succeed. It's worth about two (maybe two and half stars), but not much more. It gets credit for building a little suspense, and a little for pulling at the heart strings at the end of the movie - but not because of the "love story" element which seems forced and really - irrelevant. Claire's relationship with her sister is what really matters in this context it but doesn't get the kind of time needed in the movie to strengthen the viewer's emotional investment in that relationship. A glaring flaw is the notion that Claire (played by Anne Hathaway) who has two Masters degrees and a PhD in psychology is also someone who lacks self-awareness: that premise makes little sense. Apparently the writer (as revealed in the blu-ray Special Features) doesn't quite know or even care what the basic stages of grief are ("anger, or denial, or whatever."). A minimum amount of actual research about psychology might have been a small help to this very amateurish movie script. We are supposed to accept that this brilliant woman is so afraid of taking risks and goes through a transformation of some kind, but it doesn't really work. She is portrayed as overly cautious - for example - she chooses to wear a life vest on a boat - but then when she jumps in the water to "save" Eric - the life jacket simply disappears for no reason at all - other than so the two can kiss: and that is the basic problem with the movie. Things don't flow together; everything appears to be re-written scene after scene, as if the movie wasn't sure what it was going to become next. This movie doesn't really work for a variety of reasons. [SPOILERS ahead, but it doesn't matter, does it?] The movie fails in comparison to other movies that succeeded in a similar theme, notably "The Sixth Sense" and "Ghost." I was very curious to see this movie based on the the reviews of others, but was very disappointed. It's just not that good. It's very poorly written, poorly directed, poorly edited, and although the performance of every member of the cast was very good, their collective effort wasn't enough to save this movie from an absolute thumbs down.

5.0 out of 5 starsA+ Movie---Suspenseful and Moving! Well Directed!
Verified purchase
I really liked this movie a lot! I did not expect it to be this good--it's part paranormal Sci/Fi & part moving/inspirational/ thought-provoking. This had suspense in it, keeps you interested throughout the movie! I also love how it has a lot of meaning in it towards the end, a movie that will make you think. Loved it! Definitely recommend, the trailer does not do it justice, it was so much better! Watch it!

5.0 out of 5 starsWatch this movie, you will be thinking about it days later

This movie personally left me with questions. Questions about my own life, inevitable death and the years in between. I agree with another reviewer, you definitely will want to watch it at least twice. There are subtle clues throughout that you will miss during the first viewing. I enjoyed this film immensely and rate it as one of my favorites and I don't say that often. Glad I bought it instead of renting, as I usually do.

5.0 out of 5 starsAwsome mystery
Verified purchase
I loved this movie. Parts of the story made me laugh. It takes a lot for me to laugh out loud but I did. I enjoyed each actor and actress that I respect. They played their parts well. I like Anne in this one. The story starts out one way, then questions arise. Slowly but surely the truth is revealed. Sweet premise. Not realistic but a fantasy: an awesome story nonetheless. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 starsBest movie in a long time. Shallow people will get bored.
Verified purchase
Many people disliked this show, probably because it deals with dying and what comes next and that makes people afraid. I spent 7 weeks in a coma in 2012 and the dreams I had were very realistic. When I finally came out of the coma, I was unsure if I was now awake or even alive. I don't want to spoil the twist. I recommend you watch this 2 times. You miss a lot watching it only once. The acting is a bit surreal, but considering the twist it is appropriate. If nothing else, this may make people think about not postponing what they want to due until later. It may never come.

3.0 out of 5 starsPASSENGERS - Modern Day "Fearless"
Verified purchase
This movie reminded me of "Fearless" with Jeff Bridges, which was about a survivor of the real DC-10 crash in Sioux City, Iowa a couple decades ago. That film was based on a real crash and maybe that is why I liked it better than "Passengers". The problem with this film, is that it beats around the bush for a story and ends up a mass of confusion, romance, drama and a twisty ending which just makes you glad it is over when the credits roll.

If you like to watch films with wide appeal and don't really care about how convoluted the plot is, I guess I could recommend it. Given the choice; I'd rather watch "Fearless" again than to have watched this movie at all. Based on what I saw here, the writers and producers were attempting to make a modern-day take on that earlier film and "Passengers" just seemed to lack anything but fabricated emotions and bad special effects.

4.0 out of 5 starsGreat movie. Great thriller with a supernatural vide
Verified purchase
From the beginning you know something is up. A plane crashes and the survivors tell a different story than the one the airline tells. Is the airline covering something up? Are the passengers incorrectly remembering the events? And who is the strange man that follows survivors around? Even stranger, why is one survivor euphoric after his brutal experience? The cast delivers and the end will give you a bit of a sniffle. I would recommend you see it.

4.0 out of 5 starsWill watch again and again.
Verified purchase
The movie was interesting enough, with some plot twist that most will enjoy. Ann Hathaway is very good in this film. If one thinks about the way the film starts out, you should be able to figure out the major plot twist within the first few scenes--think M. Night Shyamalan and The Sixth Sense." I will definitely watch this film several times.
