Critic reviews for The Passenger
All of this resurrection and backtracking is hypocritical at best and underwhelming and convoluted storytelling at worst.
Ideally, by leaving behind the mazes of the park, the show-along with the hosts-can achieve not only willfulness, but also soulfulness.
I genuinely could not puzzle out some of the stuff that was going on here, to the point that I began to wonder if Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy had gotten tangled up trying to construct a finale that none of the eagle-eyed Redditors could see coming.
It would have been an okay conclusion, is all I'm saying. And it would have justified the less satisfying elements of "The Passenger."
"The Passenger" is not an easy episode to decode entirely, and we still have plenty of questions about what happens next, but only in the best way.
