Storyline

After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Claire can run really fast in high heels, as shown running after Eric, who is running after the dog. See more »

Goofs

While Clair and Eric are riding the motorcycle at about 42 min., they are not wearing glasses or goggles. It would be impossible to ride a motorcycle at street speeds without some kind of eye protection without your eyes drying out causing pain, forcing them to close their eyes. In the movie their eyes are open without distress. See more »

just passable but with strong acting‏
17 December 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A film where only cast makes the difference, in fact without the skills of Patrick Wilson and Anne Hathaway "Passengers" would have just been a melodramatic mess. This isn't certainly a very original or scary film (although reminds a lot "The 6th Sense" and "The others"), but it's not the worst either, due to some interesting twists. Anne Hathaway is a talented actress and gets to make feel her fear and frustration. She got chemistry with Wilson and they end up being plausible by complementing one another. "Passengers" is not a movie I would strongly recommend but the shocking finale and some good acting performances make a decent (barely decent actually) choice for an evening rental.
