3.0 out of 5 starsWell that happened

It started out good, at least to me. However it as one reviewer states "fizzled into lord of the flies". I've already seen "eden" which is pretty much what this movie was. I think the acting was great, I think the film quality was great, the music score was great, the idea was great but it just kind of goes off rails after the first half. I get that the conflict had to be shown and it needed to be pretty big but somehow this all just goes flat somehow. All in all not worth 20 bucks for "theatre at home".

3.0 out of 5 starsAs my grandma would say “Uff da!”

Voyagers is an OK film but it suffers from being a little too long, a little too predictable, and there’s a been there done that feel to it. It starts out good and stumbles in a meh kind of film as it progresses. I’d wait to rent it for a lower price or until it’s free on a streaming platform. Worth a watch at some point, but not for $20. 3 stars.

Brief version here, followed by detailed version with some spoilers:
A group of young adults go on a mission to find a habitable planet as Earth is being destroyed by warmer temps, drought, and disease. As the mission progresses, they discover the truth about their situation resulting in tensions and chaos.

The acting starts out strong, but as the film drags on, so do some of the performances. There’s a few minor plot holes and quite a few ethical questions are raised throughout the film.

“Nobody chooses what they’re born into. But you have to find a way to live your life. You gotta decide what kind of person you want to be. You Gotta try to be good.”
“Why? We’re just gonna die in the end, so why can’t we do what we want? What’s the difference whether we’re good or not?”

As Earth becomes inhabitable, humans search for a planet to ensure their survival. The movie is set in 2063. A mission begins to breed and raise a crew in isolation so they will never miss Earth. Richard (Ferrall) helps raise them and ends up going on the mission with them (he’s the closest person they have as a parent as they were raised in a lab from donors). As time progresses, the children who are now young adults, begin to question things happening around them. When Christopher (Sheridan) and Zac (Whitehead) discover they are being drugged, they tell the others, resulting in some of them quitting the drugs that help with impulse control. As the situation escalates, Richard is murdered and turmoil follows with every person needing to pick a side. Insert filler scenes, fighting, and like stuff (I’ll leave some spoilers out in case you do want to watch but you will likely be able to predict what happens). 86 years after the launch of the mission, the film ends with people on the ship looking out at a planet.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: drugging (for impulse control), Zac becomes obsesses with Sela and touches her (breast) without consent multiple times, multiple deaths (murder), sex (indicated multiple times but I don’t recall nudity), kissing, violence against each other, weapons (guns, knifes, or like items). Potential seizure trigger: There’s a few flashes of light from gun fire and from a scene towards the end that lasts about 15 seconds (children running down hall as they age).

1.0 out of 5 starsSave your $20 -- Here's Why
Verified purchase
A bunch of cloned, brainwashed kids go on a really long and boring ship ride. When the older captain dies who's leading them, after being murdered by one of the kids, all hell breaks loose in the most boring way possible.

There isn't a turn of the page or a shock in any scene. You see it all coming from a mile away.

Acting is OK.

The problem with this movie is the terrible script.

Save your $20. You'll be glad you did.

2.0 out of 5 starsLord of the Flies in Space - not worth 20 dollars 😒
Verified purchase
Strong premise that quickly devolved into "Lord of the Flies" in space. I literally couldn't watch it to the end with out using the skip forward button.

Just my opinion NEReviewed in the United States on May 9, 2021
3.0 out of 5 starsNot bad and not great.
Verified purchase
I went in knowing nothing. There are a few moments of stupidity and a few moments of intrigue. After seeing nothing for so long, it was good to see something in space that wasn’t political or forced in a SJW kind of way. It’s not a great movie. It was a night to escape. Was it worth $20? … probably not. Do I regret it, no. This isn’t much of a review. I don’t want to spoil it. One scene at the end is kind of absurd. In the end, it’s a young adult movie and in that sense it did well. I hope this helps someone. Brandon Stark walks again!

1.0 out of 5 starsA total waste of time and money.

This is probably one of the shallowest plotted, silliest movie I've ever forced myself to sit through (only because I paid for it).

I'm really surprised that this movie got such a low rating what's a good movie all around I wish I was a professional movie critic but I can say that it's mature it's suspenseful there's definitely enough accurate science fiction interesting the acting great it's a really good movie and I'm somewhat picky so who am I would ever take my word for it you'll enjoy the movie
