Voyagers

Voyagers

there's an interesting concept here, but then neil burger decided that re-enacting lord of the flies, on a spaceship, with an attractive and diverse (but still predominantly white and light-skinned) cast, was easier than writing a compelling story.
it has none of the nuance of lord of the flies, wastes most of its cast, and doesn't put any effort into its half-assed exploration of human nature. it's a fun movie, and then it devolves into an uninspiring waste of time, with touches of misogynoir.
