Passengers 

 

Hopefully you know the drill by now. Passengers was covered in the FFG Haul videos. I saw this movie before. We rented it many months before I purchased it. I was extremely curious to see what this sci-fi movie was all about. I was shocked to learn Passengers is actually a love story set in a science fiction universe. Let that sink in for a minute.

I like Passengers for a variety of reasons. The biggest one is the moral dilemma this movie presents. There are five thousand people in status pods traveling to another world. It will take them 120 years to get there. After thirty years Jim's pod malfunctions. He can not get back in his pod. He is there on the ship all alone. He has ninety years to go. Which means he will die before they arrive. Jim is in a bad spot and tries everything he can think of. He tries to contact the Homestead group. His message will take 19 years to arrive.

Jim even considers suicide at one point in Passengers. He drinks a lot of alcohol, and enjoys all of the fun stuff in the ship for a year. He eventually runs into another passenger Aurora. He gets to know her from her videos. He then debates whether he should get her out of her pod. If he gets her out he will no longer be alone. He will condemn her to die on the ship with him.

Passengers follows the typical Holly Weird love story. They get to know one another, fall in love, and then she finds out the truth about her pod. The ship winds up malfunctioning and the two of them must save the ship. Another pod malfunctions and a crew chief comes out all messed up. He does give them his security band to access more areas of the ship.

The issues families can have with Passengers is lack of attire, nudity, bad language, sex outside of marriage, lies, deceit, and more. The moral dilemma in Passengers is an interesting one to contemplate. Would you do it? Would you be happy all alone? What would you try to get back into your pod? Could you imagine a company making such a nasty blunder? I really love how the ship looks at the end of Passengers.
