Excellent - Nothing but the BEST !
★★★★★
Rotten Tomatoes rating is just that - Rotten ! The acting, setting, story line, and scientific basis is outstanding. I felt as if I was there with those people in their dilemma, the movie took me out of my simple life and put me well into the future in situations that I had really never seriously considered. GREAT MOVIE. Well worth your time and money. I watch 200-350 movies of all types annually and feel like I know what I am talking about. — AAWNC

This movie is worth watching! Rotten Tomatoes are full of rotten reviews!
★★★★★
I think the storyline is great. I dunno but I'm already thinking a lot of good sequels at the end of the movie. ;) — m4ck3nz13

It's a trap...

it was ok
★★★★★
It wasn't bad but it wasn't good. It was worth the five bucks. — UNLV-SWK

Just Bad.
★★★★
I don't mind a good movie with a glacial pace. But this movie - it was just a bunch of nothing. Acting was laughable, story was beyond simple. There's no twist or anything in it. At times it feels like it's going to turn into The Shining in space, but doesn't. Horrible. — CletusBrawleysGhost

Very nice sci-fi flick
★★★★
I found this sci-fi movie to be very entertaining. Great concept of malfunction in deep space. — Supertonic_man

AMAZING
★★★★★
Shipping these two! The movie is amazing and made me ask my partner if he'll get mad if I were to open his pod. Reminds me of the movie Martian but this is better. No dull moments. — Nani090489

GREAT!
★★★★★
Not sure why the reviews were so bad on this. It was a beautiful love story mixed with mystery. Character building was there and the film overall took it's time, which is a good thing. Reminded me of the good ole days in the 90's when movies would actually take their time, build anticipation and make you feel something for these characters. Plus, they used REAL sets on this! That rarely happens anymore with these types of movies. Critics got this one wrong. It's not worth 100% on rotten tomatoes but I believe it should have been more around the 80% - 90% mark. This is a unique movie that deserves FAR FAR more credit than it received. Well worth a watch and well worth the money. — Before Our Kingdom

Passengers
★★★★★
Biggest flaw of the movie: the writer of the script doesn't have the level of creative talent and is too lazy to present us the movie-goers the crappiest segment that a message that's sent to earth from the starship arrives there, not in a nano second, but in like 50 years. Seriously??? — Futurist Babe

Good movie.
★★★★★
Good movie, with a good plot. Entertaining and keeps you engaged. Really nice special effects and set up. — Movies7272

Plotholes but good acting.
★★★★★
So many plot holes. Not a fan of sci fi that don't make sense. — Bigblueballsyum

Ignore the critics
★★★★★
Absolutely love this movie, great cast, incredible atmosphere and I seriously fell in love with the music. Outstanding movie, definitely a must watch if you haven't seen it. — AzureJay89

I Loved It
★★★★
Exciting, romantic, intriguing, imaginative. I really liked this film. I don't understand the bad reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, I guess only cynical people are allowed to review there. Its a well done film. Highly recommended! — AmusedSpaceman

Worth a watch
★★★★
The actors nailed it - fun, youthful, good chemistry. Don't watch it for the science - instead let your imagination run free and roll with it. Simple story line sprinkled with some deeper meanings, but not over the top for what it is - a lighthearted, enjoyable what-if-I-woke-up-alone-on-an-interstellar-transport space movie. — SBPilotBB

This movie was amazing! It was fun watching a man fall in love with a women that he has not met and has to make a life changing decision for both their happiness. Has action, thrill, and of course a love story! — Rankberg12

Ignore Rotten Tomatoes
★★★★
This was enjoyable and thought-provoking. I didn't think it was lifeless, although it did get a little sappy. If you like these two actors and space movies, this is a must-watch. — NalaWriting

Awesome film
★★★★★
The so called film critics that reviewed this film are the same idiots that nominate all that trash i cant watch at the awards shows. Perhaps if they made more films like this, that are enjoyable for people just wanting a good story with a happy ending. The film industry would not be falling apart. — real critic #1

Actually Very Good
★★★★
My faith in the Rotten Tomatoes review system is destroyed. This movie is actually very good. — TV Sapien

Fun movie
★★★★
Great cast. Few plot holes but overall an extremely fun movie. — 3Lions007

Lame Ending
★★★★★
This movie is okay for home viewing with microwave popcorn. The movie itself felt drawn out and we called every major event written in the movie script>>>which means it was predictable. Chris Pratt gave a decent performance; whereas, you liked the character, then you didn't, then he turned out to be okay. Ms. Lawrence was unbelievably unbelievable. She clearly did not belong in this role. — New2Birds

Passengers
★★★★★
The movie has the ability to combine different genres smoothly, giving you an entertaining and thrilling experience. (Not to mention the chemistry of the two leads) — MRV1293

This movie was awesome
★★★★★
I just loved it — Alex_by1999

Awesome
★★★★★
Great movie the best that I have seen a while. I think this is a absolute must have shows how to stranded people can live without the rest of the world. — AllEyezOnRod

Cheesy!! Come On Jennifer Lawrence.. Really!!!
★★★★
Come on Jennifer Lawrence. Was off to a great start with Hunger Games, American Hustle and Joy. Tell me you just made this for the cash!!! Cheesy Sci Fi Love Story!! Absolutely Brainless and Ridiculous!!! — chgopapi1

Jim & Aurora
★★★★★
Wow! I love this movie. I watched it this Sunday morning at home and it has a couple of robots in it. For example, it was fiction. — Jolovesgum

Eh....
★★★★★
Good build up to a rotten ending. — sandjkilcran

If You Like Gravity
★★★★★
This movie was epic! I walked away completely satisfied and my wife did too. Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawence held it together admirably! ROTTEN ALERT: Rotten Tomatoes earns another compost pile for killing a good movie. — Adderall Diaries

It's a movie about life
★★★★
Ignore the critics and enjoy a movie that will make you love where you are — Abstractjwl

I really liked it!
★★★★★
I really liked it! The reviews are wrong. To each their own I guess though. — dothedew

More plot holes than swiss cheese
★★★★★
Mildly enjoyable, hardly bilievable. For someone to design such a sophisticated ship, but not think of the simplest failsafes broke the immersion again and again. Like those movies where there would be no plot if everyone just had a cell phone or wasn't an idiot. — rocketblast

Absolutely Trash
★★★★
There is absolutely nothing in this movie. For once I should have listened to the critics. — I-Journey-Man

Pretty ordinary but worth watching to see Jennifer Lawrence's presence dominate the movie.
★★★★★
Had a great premise but I don't think Chriss Pratt is a good enough actor to carry his part. Was immediately apparent when Jennifer Lawrence came to life that her presence on the screen basically basically made Chris Pratt's irrelevant. I like Chris as an actor but this wasn't the right role for him. — Bodalenko

Passager, Real Good
★★★★
I was pleasing surprised by the chimstry of these actors in this movie.....It reall kept my interest throughout the movie>>>>A wonderful Love story in space... I highly recommend this movie to everyone!!! — tplilfella

too bad
★★★★
nice efx; dumb plot/story — moonmycron

I'm with the critics this time
★★★★★
Big ideas, great visuals and really strong actors didn't carry the movie. Too many obvious plot implausibilities and reliance on the soap opera elements left me wanting more. — JimVinNYC

Not worth the iTunes rental price
★★★★★
If you just want to watch something that's visually pleasing, this is the movie for you. Otherwise it doesn't quite do much else. Poor story, bland direction, misproper use of great actors (Fishburne & Garcia) and an unfulfilling ending. Had hopes for this one. Too bad. — JesseG27

Completely ignore Rotten Tomatoes!!!
★★★★★
What a great movie!!! One of the best I've seen all year!!! I've finally learned to ignore Rotten Tomatoes. Maybe Rotten Tomatoes is why movies have gotten so terrible lately. Directors are trying so hard to impress citics they have forgotten about the people. Apple should do everyone a favor and banish the TOMATOMETER! — bodezafa 88

Great movie
★★★★★
Loved it — Ilikeunow

A trip to NOWHERE
★★★★
If you want action, this ain't it!!! For almost 2hr you'll just ride thru space and see two people on a ship. OH! plus, a two-faced robot. — 1911moochie

I liked it.
★★★★
I liked the movie but thought the girl was a cry baby. Also the whole look of the pods had the same look as the pods in the Alien movies. I wonder if Weyland Corporation is the founder of Homestead lol. — Lcempj

Critical of the critics
★★★★★
I just finished watching this and enjoyed it thoroughly. I hesitate due to the rotten tomatoes but after reading several reviews decided to give it a chance with the caveat that if I didn’t like it after 20 minutes I'd chuck. Didn't happen! Yes, not the greatest chemistry between the two leads but that didn't detract from the story and the way it was told. Not for everybody but if you generally like sci-fi and romantic story woven in, check it out for yourself. So easy to be a critic rather than a creator! — docsteven

Great movie
★★★★★
I really can't believe all the negative reviews! I thought this movie was amazing! Two great actors, and amazing story, it was really very entertaining!! — Amanda081919

Pratt & Lawerence
★★★★
This movie is about the dangers of space pools and the bad guy from Underworld is a bartender. Andy Garcia has an 11 second cameo, and there was some jogging. — Hobbit3000

Very good

I thought it was a very good film worth the money. — Kris242424

Better than those other paid reviewers thought — H.J.S.Jr.

★★★★★
