PASSENGERS | A Non-Character Driven Story

‘Passengers’, for those of you who don’t know, is a romance posing as a science fiction film, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, and unfortunately falls into the category of films-I-wanted-to-love-but-just-couldn’t. 315 more words

With a cut and paste premise that comes across bland in places, Passengers is a film that struggles to differentiate itself from the others within its genre. 704 more words
