'Voyagers': Film Review

Writer-director Neil Burger's visually alluring but dramatically underpowered sci-fi thriller about an interplanetary mission blitzed by a hormonal explosion, Voyagers, is basically Lord of the Flies in space.

Or Passengers without hypersleep pods. Either way, it's not terribly original. A solid cast and stylish design work in a spacecraft whose endless corridors become sprint lanes for cinematographer Enrique Chediak's invigorating camerawork make the Lionsgate release an easy watch and a big improvement over the studio's recent sci-fi snooze, Chaos Walking.

But the conflicts feel just a tad too routine and the characters too thinly drawn to get the blood flowing. Which is ironic given that the driving plot point is a bunch of young people.
