      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      It has a game cast and a premise ripe with potential, but Voyagers drifts in familiar orbit rather than fully exploring its intriguing themes. Read critic reviews

      Audience Says

      It has a decent cast and some interesting twists on its Lord of the Flies-inspired story, but Voyagers is slow to get going and sputters out in the end. Read audience reviews

        Voyagers feels so astonishingly like a Young Adult novel and yet it is an original screenplay from director Neil Burger (Limitless, Divergent), though it borrows heavily from Lord of the Flies at that. Set in the distant future, we're aboard a colony ship with teenagers meant to be the future of Earth, or at least their grandchildren will be when they land on a new planet. They're kept on a controlled regiment of activity, nutrition, and mood-altering medication to keep their hormones in check until it's optimum breeding time (in vitro operations). After an accident, the teenagers are all alone on a ship with no adults, and they fear an alien might have snuck on board. This leads to different factions being created, one that says to follow the rules established by their adult authority figures, and the other that wants to stop taking their meds, stop rationing their supplies, and live as wild as they desire. This leads to extended bouts of PG-13 horniess; the movie practically feels like it's trying to dry hump you for stretches of time. Everything is very YA, from the character dynamics, to the major conflict without adults, to dealing with their hormones and the thrill of freedom. I found an unexpected parallel with this movie to the January 6 insurrection. The villain in this movie, played snidely by Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk), is a darkly charismatic leader who appeals to the most selfish, self-destructive instincts of his peers, and even after definitive proof is given about his moral culpability, he's able to still gaslight his followers to accept his reality distortions and stirs them into an ignorant, violent mob. I found this character's eventual death to be extremely satisfying as a climax. Regardless, Voyagers isn't anything special. It's a lot of running down corridors, smokey side eyes and lip biting, and paranoid shouting about who is or isn't the alien. As a user so succinctly put it on Letterboxd, it's "Among Us but horny." Nate's Grade: C

        The Lord of the Flies story (which is to say that children, even educated children, may tend towards brutal tribalism without adult supervision)...in a spaceship. The framing device, test tube babies out to colonize a new world, is different somewhat from the original but essentially the story's the same one. Stick with the book, or even one of the two films made from it, of which this one comes in a distant third.
