**A space-travel tale!**
I was going to watch it, but not expecting it to be a masterpiece. It was not, yet surprised to be a lot better film when it comes to todays film overcrowded with space themes. The entire story takes place on a spaceship. It’s a space journey tale, when the mankind with 5,000 on-board heading for a new home planet, but one of them unexpectedly wakes up from his hibernation pod. It’s supposed to wake him and everybody a few months before their destination, so now he’s up nearly a century early, and what he plans to do is what the adventures covered in the rest of the film.
There’s no connection to the 2008 film of the same name. Initially I thought it was like a live-action version of ‘Wall-E’. Not entirely, only a few scenes and the main two characters remind Wall-E and Eva. It is also a limited cast film and I loved the simple screenplay, but strong enough to be one of the best in its kind. The actors were very good. The visuals were beautiful, a perfect film for the late night to watch alone peacefully.
From the Norwegian director of ‘Headhunters’ fame. This is not his Hollywood debut, but previously he had got an Oscar nomination for the film ‘The Imitation Game’. The concept was like ‘The Blue Lagoon’ or kind of the space version of the Eden Garden tale. I had predicted a few scenes, those were too simple to do that. The real big thing came in the later part, especially when all the focus shifts to more than the initial narration. Scientifically, not everything believable, but cinematically, anything can be possible. So with a such concept, the film headed to the conclusion where a twist came into play. Entertainment is guaranteed. One of the year’s best that should not be missed. Recommended!
Crusoe and Girl Friday.
Pretty much reviled by professional critics, Passengers has overcome that to hold affection with a good portion of the sci-fi loving public. More safe sci-fi footings than anything remotely ground breaking, it ends up a a tidy romantic piece that’s laced with pertinent questions involving man and his/her reactions to extraordinary scenario’s.
Although the viewer is for the most part hankering for action to explode off the screen, it’s only when – in the film’s last quarter – you realise that it was actually working fine as a character study without the fireworks.
Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence have bunches of charisma, in fact more than enough to carry the story through its more shaky elements. They in turn are aided by Michael Sheen who is perfectly cast as the Android (not Robot!) bartender Arthur.
The effects work is impressive and director Morten Tyldum stitches the set pieces together admirably, the highlight being a rather superb gravity loss sequence. While the sound mix is also to be applauded.
Newcomers should expect a Robinson Crusoe love story in space as opposed to a sci-fi actioner, though one with more cerebral strains than at first hinted, because then the pic delivers a good time and adds to what is turning out to be a rather great decade for sci-fi fans. 7/10
The movie is not only a science fiction but also the psychology of the characters which are interacting with the situation throughout the movie. Love , thriller and science- fictious will excite you throughout the movie.
A Tree grows in Avalon
The Homestead company makes money colonizing planets. On board the fusion powered, ion drive ship, Avalon are 5,000 passengers and 288 crew, all in hibernation. When an asteroid hits the ship in the first scene, it damages the ship, but it fails to self repair itself. Mechanic/Engineer Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) and uptown girl write Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) are awaken 90 years too early and eventually discover (plot spoiler?) the ship is destined for life support failure unless it can be repaired.
While the film is billed as a love story, I found it equally compelling as science fiction. I think they could have written better dialogue for Jim, or maybe had someone else in that role less good looking in order to make their differences more acute…like Woody Harrelson. But, they wanted the film to appeal to women to so they cleverly added a love story in order to get women to watch boring science fiction…or did they add science fiction to a love story in order to get guys to watch it? Either way, the film was enjoyable, although may have been about a dozen minutes too long. I liked the special effects, especially the zero gravity swimming pool scene. Really cool.
Some geek stuff: In the film they approach the red giant star Arcturus (didn’t look too red). It is 36.7 light years away, about the time they have been traveling in 30-40 tears. However, according to their dialogue, they are traveling at half the speed of light which means it would take them 73 years to get there. Just saying.
