4.0 out of 5 stars ABOVE AVERAGE SCI-FI THRILLER 26 Mar 2011
By 747Rick
Format:DVD
'Pandorum' is actually pretty good. Yes its not totally original but what is these days? Basing pretty much the entire film on a spaceship with failing power is going to include plenty of dim and dark corridors so comparisons with other films such as the Alien franchise and Event Horizon are always going to spring to mind.

Mixing it up by placing cannibals on a spaceship works fairly well. Couple that with the fact that because the Humans all appear to have woken from stasis at different times means they are fighting each other as well as the 'baddies' The acting and special effects are good and there are a couple of neat twists near the end.

It never quite lives up to the opening 30 minutes which is very entertaining because you're not quite sure which way the film is going to go but all in all it is a worthwhile addiditon to anyone who's a fan of Science Fiction and Horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguingly clever SciFi horror 3 April 2011
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Right from the start this film had my attention. It had one of the most exciting and intriguing opening 10 minutes I've seen, and then before you know it you're sucked into the nightmare world that is the film Pandorum.

I thought there was much to admire about this movie. The acting was excellent, the set design perfect, the special effects were spectacular and the creatue make-up satisfyingly gruesome. Even the end credits look great and are worth watching.

The supporting cast were just as strong as the main characters in the film - and fight fans will recognise Strike Force champion Cung Lee, famous for breaking Frank Shamrock's arm. There's also the Beautiful Antje Traue. And throughout the film the many sets provide a visualy varying vista and helps give the space ship Elysium (the setting for the film) a suitably vast feel.

The strongest thing about Pandorum though, by far, is the story. I found it both tense and intriguing and pretty soon I was hooked. I found it unfolded at the perfect pace, with questions being answered and new mysteries and elements added at just the right time. Cleverly though, it's been woven into a film that packs plenty of action too.

If I had one critiscm, it would be that in the final scenes during the film's climax, the storyline gets a little convoluted and leaves you a bit confused - but with a little creative thought you can figure it out. The BluRay transfer is excellent quality which is essential with Sci Fi, although it is a little light on extras with the usual behind the scenes documentary, director's commentary, and still gallery only.

Essentially a SciFi-horror, Pandorum offers a cerebral storyline which cleverly mixes elements of a mystery thriller with classic Science fiction and plenty of action. In my humble opinion, this film is recommended. A+

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising. A totally original modern sci-fi 10 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
Pandorum is ultimately a beautifully choreographed game of cat & mouse between human and monster around an enormous, abandoned space ship. If I didn't know otherwise, I'd say that it's probably an adaptation of some kind of best selling video game. In fact, the best thing about Pandorum is that it's totally unique.

What begins with two characters awaking from cryogenic chambers, having completely lost their memories, soon turns into something I can only describe as a brilliantly tense cross between Neil Marshall's classic The Descent and Frank Vestiel's more recent Eden Log.

Director Christian Alvart not only appears to be a master in tension-building, but has a fabulously witty sense of humor. Those tied up within the film's complexities probably won't notice this, but there are definitely some sly jokes mixed in with the scares.

In conclusion, there's some very good acting on show here as well as a great few twists waiting for you within the final 10 minutes. It's not the next Alien and critics won't be friends with it, but it's certainly a very good evening's entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci Fi Movie :) 10 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
Previously I didn't know of this film until I was recommended it. I was very impressed every aspect of it from the sci fi theme to the horror and I found some parts quite amusing :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable but derivative sci-fi yarn 17 Jan 2011
By Cartimand TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
I reckon the dozen or so (at the time of writing) reviewers who rated this as a lone-star movie need to get over the fact that NO 'haunted house in space' movie is ever going to match the visceral horror of Alien.

Sure Pandorum owes a lot to other films of the genre. It felt more like a cross between Event Horizon and Cargo to me, but it still ticks most of the boxes. We have some decent eye-candy, lots of suspense, a few genuine make-you-jump moments and a fairly spectacular finale. I do have to admit that I found it a bit over-long though and my lady had to jab me in the ribs once, when my attention started to wander around an hour in. But I stuck with it and was rewarded with some decent enough action and a couple of twists - one of which I didn't get!

It doesn't demonstrate the capabilities of blu-ray that well, because most of the action takes place in dimly-lit corridors, but when we cut to clarity (notably in the final sequence), it looks pretty damn spectacular. 5.1 surround sound is fairly impressive too and contributes much to the atmosphere.

To sum up; it's not that bad at all and sci-fi horror buffs should find enough to enjoy in Pandorum.
