             The starship Avalon is transporting over 5,000 colonists and crew in hibernation pods to the planet Homestead II, a journey taking 120 years. Thirty years into its journey, the ship encounters an asteroid belt, in which it collides with a large asteroid. This weakens the ship's protective energy shield enough for a piece to pass through, impacting the ship. A malfunction awakens one passenger, mechanical engineer Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), 90 years too early.
         After a year of isolation, with no company except Arthur (Michael Sheen), an android bartender, Jim, despondent, contemplates suicide. One day he notices beautiful Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) in her pod. Her video profile reveals she is a writer with a humorous personality. After struggling with the morality of manually reviving Aurora for companionship, he awakens her, claiming her pod malfunctioned like his. Jim makes Arthur promise not to tell Aurora why she really woke up. Aurora, devastated she may grow old and die before the ship reaches Homestead II, attempts a fruitless effort at re-entering hibernation, just as Jim tried. Eventually, she accepts her situation and begins writing a book about her experiences. Jim and Aurora grow closer, becoming lovers.

First half of this film is quite boring. Im not so excited about this film but when they try to fixed the starship, that part was interesting. I found some 18 something scene in this film, so, parents, avoid watching this with your children.

Rating IMDB : 7/10
