Surprisingly goodBy Dangermous3 (27 reviews) from NoRwicH , 03 Oct 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Went to watch this film over the weekend after booking tickets online. Then finding out that this film was made by the same director that brought us the terrible Resident Evil films.So i guess we were kinda expecting an abomination of a film. Surprisingly the film looks and feels very creditable (Unlike Resident Evil) with plenty of tension,curiosity and the odd jumping outta yeah seat moment.The creatures i thought looked fairly good, To begin with you only see glimpse of them, as they move very quickly when moving in for the kill. The camera movement also helps with the fast pace of the creatures. Its hard to say where I've seen similar creatures before, but they look very tribal with their face paint and markings. There's also a couple of twists at the end of the film, which was kinda unexpected. FILM STORY
Two astronauts awake from deep space hibernation with no memory of who/where they are. After finding themselves in a dilemma with no power throughout the gigantic spaceship, and to make matters worse they cannot find anybody else remaining on the ship.They set out to replenish the power to the generator in a hope to find the lost members of the crew.They soon realise that something else is with them on the ship, and they ain't particularly friendly.But after awhile both astronauts start doubting their mental state of mind. Maybe these astronauts are simply experiencing hallucinations, Another well documented case of Pandorum, a condition ( Sickness) of amorality and delusions of power,that arise from prolonged deep space hibernation. One things for certain, only time will tell...but under the circumstances, times one thing that's not on there side. Help isn't coming.

worth a watchBy koussa (12 reviews) from Manchester , 31 Oct 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideA low budget film that had me as scared as Alien and Aliens. Turns a bit into 'so what would happen if HG Wells' time machine took place in outer space in a space ship' but other than that ok....A bit more clearer picture of what happened originally would have helped. With only 1200 surviving out of 60,000 I hope there was enough west indian hot pepper sauce to go around
let down.By geordie24sas (14 reviews) , 29 Oct 2013Thought id give it a go after reading some of the reviews. was very disappointed. Acting isnt great and at times I was struggling to stay awake. i love sci fi movies but this was a swing and a miss im afraid.
Very scary!By Shells38 (2 reviews) , 16 Jul 2013I found this movie quite scary. Edge of your seat material, keeps you guessing also. Not for the faint hearted!
Utter drivellBy a customer , 10 Jun 2013No credible storyline. Use of shock, blood and gore must have kept costume & makeup busy throughout. Are they real or are they hallucinations, started to wear thin halfway through the film.
