| Excellent movie that once again displays paid critics are out of touch.
It takes a lot for me to take the time to review a movie. In this case I feel strongly compelled to do so, and heartily agree with those who found this movie to be thoroughly enjoyable. I almost passed on this movie because I mistakenly read a few critic reviews. So I will proceed to counter a few of the critics arguments.

1) "A conclusion (to the movie) that's as egregiously contrived and corny as it is predictable". Yes, this genre has one of two ways to end. They all do. Good or bad. To guess correctly doesn't mean it's predictable or that you're a genius. There were a number of times in the movie that the script could have gone one way or another, and I was in suspense each time.

2) "....production design is polished to the point of looking chintzy." "Polished"?? The ship is a highly technological feat of engineering that's carrying 5,000 passengers 90 years into space. It's SUPPOSED to look "polished"! As a design artist who is into sci-fi I thought the set designs were well done.

3) "...."Passengers" increasingly succumbs to timidity and begins shrinking into a bland science-fiction adventure". Probably written by someone who is not into sci-fi or feels that the genre is not as legitimate as other "higher" forms of art. The movie was thought provoking and raises quite a few questions of morality and acts of right-or-wrong. The concept is also far more original than most sci-fi movies.

4) "....perfunctory, suspense-free spacewalks". Did these people watch the same movie as I did? There were three spacewalks in the movie. The first two were not meant to be suspenseful, but to convey what it would be like to actually do so for the first time. The last was anything but "suspense-free"!

In conclusion, my recommendation is to not be swayed by over-paid critics or critic wanna-be's. If it's a genre you like, and it's got relatively acceptable reviews (by regular movie-goers like us)....give it a shot! In the case of "Passengers", I think you'll agree with the 70% who liked the movie.
