  • Summary: 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. (Sony Pictures) Expand

    Intelligent supernatural drama.

    With these actors and Rodrigo García's sensitive direction, Passengers might have fared well as a short. But as a full-length feature, it's a long ride to a familiar destination.

    Turns out to be just another dud in the genre of revisionist mysteries that have been messing with our heads since Haley Joel Osment saw dead people. Only this time, the big reveal doesn't so much twist the plot as snap its neck.
  4. A clunky, dead-on-arrival scary drama that proves that even people with good taste need a good script or direction.
  5. The film is a misfire, which you feel more acutely given the talents of those involved, including director Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her") and rising star Anne Hathaway.
  6. A supernatural thriller so mechanically inept and lacking in suspense that it doesn't even pass muster as lowbrow Halloween-ready entertainment.
  7. Reviewed by: Nick Pinkerton
    A kind of declawed, inside-out "Final Destination" -- with none of the sense of showmanship, and all the looming malice of a mawkish condolence card.

    great movie, touch to the heart. Unthinkable end. I cried in 2008 when i saw it the first time, i cried again in 2013. There is nothing morereal in life more than death I Apreciated the movie secuence and the great end., I do not know why people rated low this movie, for me this movie was phenomenal. I imagine people are getting less sensitive in this century or people are forgetting to life free of materialism, violence and hatret. This movie is the oposite; true and pure love, respect to those gone and a good reason to clearly understand life. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I found this film endearing, tender, and a beautiful love story. Magnificent actors and sensitive direction. Watch it.
    If you only like action films with violence, sex and special effects, forget it. First you will have to wake up.

    I am a huge Anne Hathaway fan but I have to say that this is probably one of her worse movies. It's not bad through any fault of her own, the acting by everybody in the movie is solid. This is just horrible writing. It's incredibly predictable. My wife actually guessed this within the first ten minutes. I enjoyed watching the ending but the journey to get there was just not worth it. Also, Anne Hathaway's character is supposed to by a therapist which makes 90% of this movie frustrating in how un-professional she is. Overall I was very disappointed and wont be watching it again. If you catch it on TV you might enjoy it otherwise it's not really worth watching. Expand

    If you are looking for an intense-shocking thriller with a great twist in the end this movie is not your thing. Not that it's an awful film but it's not as good as you expect. The main story is really good and original and it seems really interesting, Anne Hathaway was good too but that's all in that movie. Everything else is just one hour and a half of stupidity and boredom. It has no atmosphere and even the music reminded me of a romantic comedy. Too bad.. It could have been much much better. Expand
