Critics Consensus

While it might prove somewhat satisfying for devout sci-fi fans, Pandorum's bloated, derivative plot ultimately leaves it drifting in space.

Keith Uhlich Time Out As the credit "Produced by Paul W.S. Anderson" attests, this is hackwork of the highest order. Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Perri Nemiroff CinemaBlend It takes a brilliant concept and stellar performances and buries them in banality and mediocre scares. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 12, 2010 Full Review Kim Newman Empire Magazine Pandorum is a hodge-podge of familiar sci-fi stuff, which feels as if it were adapted from a computer game. Rated: 2/5 Oct 4, 2009 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It wants to transcend several genres at once, and by doing so become something original. Except it doesn’t realize these many goals, nor does it accomplish maybe just one or two. Rated: 2/4 Aug 30, 2023 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand It’s basically a zombie movie set-up on an industrial spaceship, a fast-moving B-movie that throws out lots of theories that don’t stand up to the light of reason and then moves on to the next chase and feeding frenzy by the mutant hordes.
