Passengers-Kids’ Movie Review

Mechanic Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) is on a 120-year voyage with 5,000 other people. They’re all leaving earth for Homestead II, an earth-like world with “room to grow.” They will be in hibernation, sleeping agelessly and waking when the ship is four months away from it’s final destination. However, there a slight problem. Due to a technical glitch, Jim wakes up 90 years before the ship is due to reach their new world. Living alone for almost a year, Jim gets very lonely. As he continually stares at a beautiful woman named Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence), while she’s in her hibernation pod, he gradually falls in love. Jim discovers that he could try and wake her from her deep sleep. So, after much thought and consideration he selfishly awakens her to have a companion, a friend and a potential true love.
