Many of you probably know there were a lot of good movies that came out during the holiday season. One of them was happening in a spaceship thirty years away from Earth. In this one, people are hibernating during a long travel to a new Earth: Homestay 2. The only problem? The sleeping cell of a passenger opened for no appearing reason. And since being alone is probably the worst form of torture that ever exist, the passenger will try to get company. But loneliness will be the last of his problems once the ship slowly start to shut down.
You probably figured it out. I am talking about “Passengers”. The movie that is starring as its two main actors: Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence in the roles of Jim Preston and Aurora Lane.
First of all, I loved the acting of both actors. As Chris Pratt was alone in the first part of the movie, we cannot do anything else than care for the character as we see him pass through all the mental fights against loneliness. Every single emotions was able to be felt by the audience and made us want to do something (in our head of course :p ) to help him be happy his situation. And that doesn’t stop there. As soon as the character of Jennifer Lawrence comes in, we can see the exact moment that he changed. Even if it is subtle at first, it is still perceptible in the eyes or small gestures that he does in his everyday life on the ship. It is really adorable to see both characters interact with each other. It is like following the formation of a strong link image by image which is amazing!
Talking about link. You need to know that I placed, at first, the wrong story with the trailer which made me always surprised about the story. Every time we got a new information, I could never figure where it was going (in a good way) which kept a surprise effect during the whole movie. Let me explain what I mean by surprise: after seeing the trailer and the name “Passengers”, I knew it was going to be a Science-fiction. The thing I thought wrong was that there were going to be Aliens on the ships or something like that. Not that the trailer gave us a different story, but it gave us the choice between two. The one I just mentioned and the real one. After talking with a lot of people, I realized how many thought like me. If you did as well, don’t worry. The movie will just appear more realistic and amazing since, like in real life, we never know what is going to happen next.
Now, let’s talk about special effects. They are just so well done! Seriously guys! When they are outside of the ship, looking at the galaxy, it seems so real! It is like you are there with them and that this magical show is what you are seeing as well! The ship also appeared as something that could be built in the future and really sent to space which add to the realism of the background.
I know it is possible to see the movie in 3D, which I haven’t. So, if you did, please leave a comment about how you found it! Personally, I never actually realized I watched it in 2D considering how well the effects are done.
So, yes, I recommend this movie to science-fiction and space movie’s fans! But be aware that this movie is full of surprise and doesn’t include Aliens!
Here’s the trailer!
