Critic Consensus: While it might prove somewhat satisfying for devout sci-fi fans, Pandorum's bloated, derivative plot ultimately leaves it drifting in space.

News & Interviews for Pandorum
Critic Reviews for Pandorum
Alvart achieves a strong sense of scale, but characters and ideas are lost amid a mess of fight scenes that, oddly, look like outtakes from 'The Descent'.
The script's twisty, end-of-the-world intrigue saves this otherwise leaden film from total self-destruction.
According to the press notes, pandorum means "Orbital Dysfunctional Syndrome"; whatever that is, by the end of the movie I was convinced I had caught it.
A grizzled Quaid and an intense Foster do their best to keep straight faces, but this is not an effort likely to figure prominently on their resumes.
As always, Foster sells the hell out of his role but non-sci-fi fans may well themselves be driven mad long before the end.
Audience Reviews for Pandorum
A very decent Sci/Fi, thriller effort.....first time can say that in a long time! A very good atmospheric film with plenty of action. Starts well the middle is patchy but it picks up again towards the end. Good effects and set design, the overall feel of the film and the spaceship is quite creepy, good use of lighting etc. Not the most original, it will feel like a compilation of ideas from the best know Sci/Fi films. Overall a good effort that most should enjoy.
Huge sci fi fan and although this movie doesn't make you sick with excitement, it is at best an average sci fi that is enjoyable and doesn't bore you to death. Enough action to see you through, although predictable it does entertain.
Not scary, which is a big problem for a film that is trying to be a sci fi horror
