Passengers – A Quick Capsule Review

Passengers – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Passengers is one of the best designed, best looking films of the year.  It’s simply stunning.  In fact they spent so much time on this I’d argue they totally forgot to work on the story which at bests is plodding at worst is dull. Look when the action finally kicks in the film finds a fine pace and becomes enjoyable but it’s too little too late and as charismatic as the two leads are, there’s just not enough for them to work with. 

Best Bit: The production Design 

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid
