Passengers ★★

This film is the cinematic equivalent of clickbait: begging you to look at it while having nothing to say.

Few films have given me a harder time suspending disbelief. No part of it has any depth. Not the plot, not the dialogue, not the sci-fi, not the romance. And it has the nerve to acknowledge its hollow meaninglessness when that crappy Imagine Dragons song comes on in the end.

I really enjoyed Morten Tyldum's other films Imitation Game and Headhunters, but this is some lowest-common-denominator garbage. It does look pretty, tho.
