I actually enjoyed Pandorum, and I absolutely did not think I would. I'm just as surprised as you are.
September 8, 2017
Well-paced and boasting impressive production design and a decidedly gloomy atmosphere, but execution, no matter how efficient, is no match for originality.

[Pandorum] might seem like a potentially cool movie, but unfortunately the key word is "potentially".

It takes a brilliant concept and stellar performances and buries them in banality and mediocre scares.

A gorgeous production design can't save the picture from trying too hard to dazzle with very little inspiration, and while Pandorum is easy to stare at, it can be a seriously punishing sit.

A little bit 'Eden Log,' a little bit 'Descent,' and a whole lot of 'Alien,' 'Pandorum' ultimately succeeds as a watchable sci-fi/horror/mystery.

February 15, 2010
a sci-fi scenario far less interested in exploring outer space than human interiors where the only 'aliens' are our own monstrous selves, just waiting to leap out of the atavistic shadows.

It's basically a zombie movie set-up on an industrial spaceship, a fast-moving B-movie that throws out lots of theories that don't stand up to the light of reason...

I liked this movie even more on the second viewing. The monsters were trivial, but the plot was intriguing. Granted you would have to be a hard-core sci-fi fan to like this. Paul Chambers, CNN.

December 28, 2009
Veering between alarmist adventure on other planets and assault on viewer senses here at home, the claustrophobic cinematic terrorism seems to come awfully close to wielding a movie as a deadly weapon up on the screen.

An unusually unpleasant and unwatchable sci-fi endeavor...

October 11, 2009
Clenches its teeth grimly as it blunders through its overstuffed plot.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 10, 2009
too much of the film devolves into hectic action sequences that makes you feel like someone suddenly dropped you into a blender and turned out all the lights
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 9, 2009
An intensely effective sci-fi chiller, mainly thanks to its canny set and sound design, and its constant, relentless sense of dread and tension.

Provides some very intense, memorable chills.

October 5, 2009
flirts with greatness with an impressive first half filled with thrills and solid pacing but it stumbles in its more action-oriented second half.

October 4, 2009
Pandorum is a hodge-podge of familiar sci-fi stuff, which feels as if it were adapted from a computer game.

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'.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 4, 2009
Pandorum's insistence on action sequence after action sequence, reveal after reveal, tension upon tension deadens the effect any of it might have had in a more gracefully developed narrative.
