Goofs

Spin gravity is just wrong all over. The ship obviously relies on it and at least two scenes play with the idea but in both cases very badly. In the first case Jim is descending from an outer ring towards the center of the ship and is warned by the lift that he will experience zero-g. He would in fact just experience less force the nearer he gets to the center. As he doesn't pass through the center there would be no 0-point. The lift also goes down, when it should be going up. In the second scene the whole ship loses gravity for no reason. Once it has been spun up the structure will continue to spin on its own unless resisted. Loss of power would not (and does not) cause it to stop rotating therefore no loss of simulated gravity. See more »

I cannot understand all those bad reviews of Passengers
23 December 2016 | by (Vietnam) – See all my reviews

The movie is definitely worth your time. Firstly, 10/10 for realism. I would absolutely have done all those things if I were in their shoes. Secondly, the acting is one of the best I've seen (I was pretty skeptical about J.Lawrence but not anymore after this movie; and Chris Pratt's acting keeps getting better and better since GotG). The plot is quite unique (I do not believe I've ever seen another plot that resemble this). Lastly, the visuals is BREATHTAKING (I absolutely adore the ship design).

The pacing was a little bit too fast at the end but not that noticeable.

Rating: 9/10

Sometime a simple movie with simple plot is better than s**t like Batman vs Superman because there are less space for mistakes. Also, do not expect much action in this movie (I expected more action but in the end I was OK without it.)

Also, sleeping beauty is also named Aurora xD
