Pandorum (2009)

Links: TVTropes, Wikipedia, IMDB (6.8).

Meh. A sci-fi psychological horror/thriller film that mistakenly believes it's the forbidden love child of Event Horizon and Memento. I thought the use of hand-cranked power was cute, albeit unrealistic for the quantities of electricity involved. The end has some twists somewhat reminiscent of The Village or Fight Club... but by the time the twists appeared, the movie had still failed to make me care. Oh, and cue a ton of whiny teenage nihilist philosophy coming out of adult mouths. Overall, I liked it better than I expected to, and I don't regret seeing it, but I wouldn't have missed a thing by skipping it. Score: 2 stars out of 4.
