‘Voyagers’: sci-fi starring Tye Sheridan and Colin Farrell shot down by critics

Published

on

The sci-fi ‘Voyagers’, starring Tye Sheridan and Colin Farrell, debuts this Friday (09) in international theaters, but the specialist critic has already had a chance to check out the production firsthand and the main reviews are already among us.

And with a 33% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of this posting), the film has been slaughtered by critics, being seen as a much inferior version of the classic ‘Lord of the Flies’.

Additionally, the production has been severely criticized for not having fluidity in its script, ensuring a plot lacking energy and unable to capture attention.

Check out the top reviews:

“Burger’s stupid attempt to update ‘Lord of the Flies’ makes you want a good old-fashioned school bus and a pig’s head on a stick. – Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post

“Essentially a weightless ‘Lord of the Flies‘, Neil Burger’s Voyagers, however, looks like a sci-fi pilot on The CW, to those who find ‘The 100’ very unsanitary. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“‘Voyagers’ isn’t badly done and a handful of actors are talented, but there is something mechanical, schematic, and a little monotonous about it.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

Enjoy watching:

“The fast pace of the film, its deficit of emotional energy, its ugly colors, its repetitive chases by more runners … and the common tendency of its actors to growl and scowl make those 108 minutes seem endless.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“The first 70 minutes of ‘Voyagers’ are so devoid of humor, passion and spontaneity that it is difficult to interact with the characters.” – Chris Hewitt, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“It sounds like the product of a brainstorming session that started with the ‘Nostromo for Teens’ concept.” – Katie Walsh, Tribune press service

Check out the official movie teaser:

The film is written and directed by Neil Burger (“The Illusionist”).

With the future of the human race threatened, a group of young men and women, raised to be intelligent and obedient, set out on an expedition to colonize a distant planet. But when they uncover disturbing secrets about the mission, they challenge their training and get carried away by a primitive nature.

Tye Sheridan, Lily-Rose Depp, Fionn Whitehead, Chanté Adams, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Viveik Kalra, Archie Madekwe, Quintessa Swindell, Madison Hu and Colin Farrell are the stars.

“Voyagers” still has no forecast of arrival in Brazil.
