Movie Review: “Passengers”

This is a very slow developing “sixth sense”-like movie. The main character, a washed-out psychiatrist (sounds familiar?), tried to help the survivors getting over the post-traumatic symptoms. The bad guy from the airlines was the pilot that didn’t save the airplane from crashing because he wasn’t at the captain seat when the plane engine burst to flame.

As it turns out, they, including the main characters, are the living dead. And perhaps the entire setting is fake for their benefit – another “Matrix”? They just need to convince themselves or be convinced by their dead loved ones that they’re really dead. It’s full of decoys, like buses and cars stopping, to confuse the audience thinking that all these survivors are alive. Interesting twist near the end.

The movie is a bit creepy but a interesting angle borrowed from “Sixth Sense” and “Matrix.”
