[Friday-30] Pandorum (2009)

Pandorum (2009) is a serious and dark sci-fi thriller/horror movie that eerily reminds me of the infamous "Alien" movie franchise. I remembered growing up in the 80s, scared by Alien's "Facehugger", "Chestburster", and those horrible bugs-look-alike-with-mandibles-and-tentacles biological species every time I watched Alien.

This time round, there's this strong sense of deja vu as I watch Pandorum on the big screen, especially when the "other species" appear onscreen. However, forget about Alien because Pandorum has a different plot, direction, and destination.

Here are some random thoughts, hopefully not spoilers. :)

Pandorum is a sci-fi movie, so you get to see the outerspace, spaceship, space crew, space technology, no doubt. Also, what's a sci-fi movie without non-human biological species, right? But, there's an interesting twist in Pandorum pertaining to the origin of the species. In fact, a good and logical one. What about the ending? Surprisingly unexpected yet not confusing; it's almost relieving.

In terms of thrill, tension, action, and gore? Yes, these elements plus the dark, building sense of anticipation are enough to jerk you from your seat from time to time.

In short, an entertaining, non thought-provoking watch. If you're not a sci-fi thriller fan and don't like to be stressed out, don't watch. :) You know what I mean.
