Ideas gone wrong in Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence Passengers

The movie worked because of clever screenplay by Jon Spaiht, lensing by Rodrigo Prieto and some truly spectacular effects work, particularly with the swimming pool sequence that has Lawrence rolling in increasing waves of chlorine.

Ideas gone wrong in Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence Passengers

Passengers is the best example of Sci-Fi mixed with Rom-Com gone wrong. Even the Hollywood's most engaging movie stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt couldn't save the fall from top of the Academy award-nominated director Morten Tyldum's movie.

If you want a gist of the idea of the movie, take the space loneliness exhibited in Gravity and The Martian, mix it with Twilight zone episode, add on the top stars Lawrence and Pratt, sprinkle it with great production design, special effects and beautiful cinematography, tada! You have

Passengers.

This isn't some Oscar-caliber work from the Norwegian director Morten Tyldum, after his much-acclaimed The Imitation Game. However, the best part is the amazingly crafted movie in the best style of studio moviemaking and the skill of keeping you hooked throughout.

The production design by Guy Hendrix Dyas is A-grade, and Thomas Newman delivers another pro score.

Producers are Neal H. Moritz, Stephen Hamel, Michael Maher and Ori Marmur. The movie released on December 16, however, in the beginning has been in the middle track with fan following.
