Pandorum Reviews

October 4, 2009
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.
September 27, 2009
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.

The sort of thing that makes you wish you were playing a video game instead.

Alvart's cynicism about the current state of mankind helps make futuristic Pandorum interesting, but what makes it fun is his evident enthusiasm and talent for exploring the conventions of sci-fi films.

Director Christian Alvart and screenwriter Travis Malloy must have seen Aliens in the cradle, for they've digested it with love and delivered smart thrills that will please more than genre fans.

September 25, 2009
It's a tight, minimalist Alien-esque "something is loose and hunting people on our space ship" picture that is as claustrophobic as you'd expect, if not quite as paranoid as you might hope.

The long middle portion does get tedious, obvious and downright laughable, but sci-fi fans probably won't regret the experience.
