I saw Passengers on Tuesday night. Here are some words I used on Twitter:
Beautiful. Powerful. Heartbreaking. Inspiring. Awesome.
Chris Pratt did a fine job, and Michael Sheen was spot on, but Jennifer Lawrence absolutely owned her role, all the way to the bone. She was astounding, and without her performance the film simply wouldn’t have worked. Chris Pratt may have been positioned as our protagonist, but Jennifer Lawrence was the beating heart of the story.
Enough gushing. It’s a fine movie, and it clears my Threshold of Awesome.
