Pandorum (2009)

Director: Christian Alvart

Stars: Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster, Cam Gigandet, Norman Reedus

Two crew members are stranded on a spacecraft and quickly - and horrifically - realize they are not alone. Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It's pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can't remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower ventures deep into the ship and begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft's shocking, deadly secrets are revealed...and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.

This movie gets great reviews all over. I guess that I am one of the few that just did not enjoy this movie. I found it really dull and slow. The story was not too clear. This is just my opinion. The set and background for the movie really set the tone. The make-up for the creature/aliens looked great. It just seemed like it has been done too many times. The cast and the acting was well played in the movie. It just seemed to me that not everything just worked out that well together.

This movie was just too slow for me. It is considered partly a horror movie, but I just do not see that at all. There was nothing scary about it at all. I know that there are a lot of people that will like this movie. Enjoy.
