Passengers’ review

This definetely a sci-fi story of a spacecraft heading for a far away planet. Apparently, the one hundred and twenty year flight at half light speed, takes five thosand passengers and a crew of over two hundred to a place which, in a subtle metaphor of the New World, resembles the early days of America. In an atempt to colonise a planet called Hamstead II, and due to some technical failure, two of the passengers awake from a life suspended sleep that should have taken the whole time span of the journey and thus, they end up coming round eighty eight years earlier.
The movie with the outstanding performance of Jeniffer Lawrence, who stars the main character in a futuristic but logically well organised film, convincing script and special effects, shows a deep insight into human feelings and relationships. The movie is somehow, a research on the pros and cons of extraterrestial voyages in terms of human psychological endurance, use of artificial intelligence and time and space limits.

Needless to say I’m really keen on sci-fi films but this one is thrilling and exiciting and it also tells a genuine romantic story. I watched the movie with the original soundtrack in English with the Spanish subtitles. When I became quite hard to understand I simply read the script under the screen. That was only yesterday in the afternoon and I think it was an awsome film.
