"Passengers"movie critics reviews--with positive comments!

Some reviews of "Passengers" are not as scathing as others. Here are a few that even have praise for Patrick's work...

And, remember, judge the film for yourself. More Patrick Wilsonfans are seeing it and really loving his performance in this film. If you are one of the lucky few who have it in your area, ignore the critics and give it a whirl! And please post over on our messageboard on the "Passengers Fan Reviews" there HERE.

With praise for Patrick:

"The acting is generally good, with the likes of Dianne Wiest and Andre Braugher helping to class up the thing. Wilson fares best, delivering a layered performance as a man trying to understand things that can't be understood while newly awakened to the sharpness and sweetness of being alive. But if you're a Hathaway fan and can only see one movie this week, "Rachel Getting Married" is your better bet."

The Chicago Reader:


This intelligent supernatural drama stars Anne Hathaway as a grief counselor who, assigned to work with a group of plane-crash survivors, becomes attracted to one of them (Patrick Wilson). Director Rodrigo Garcia moves the story along gradually, which helps to mitigate some of the more formulaic elements; the first half plays like a quirky romantic drama, giving barely an inkling of the paranormal events that follow. The surprise ending isn't as shocking as those of Jacob's Ladder or The Sixth Sense—two stellar examples of the genre—but it's still dramatically potent. Cinematographer Igor Jadue-Lillo renders the Vancouver locales in suitably austere monochrome. With David Morse, Andre Braugher, and Diane Wiest. PG-13, 94 min. (JK)

"what’s surprising is that it was even made at all. Consummate professionals Hathaway and Wilson do their part to disguise the film’s lack of energy or originality, with Wilson bringing a mischievous spark to his character that threatens to make things almost interesting. The duo even develop an easy chemistry"
