Pandorum (2009)

Mankind has send spaceship to colonize another planet. Two crew members wake up from hypersleep not remembering anything. They realize something is wrong. They don't find anyone from previous shift. I remember seeing another movie with similar name and premise. It surely was different movie since ending was different.

Pandorum is more horror movie happening in spaceship than science fiction movie with horror elements. It was turn off for me even though story is quite hard science fiction. Most of it is survival horror. Science fiction parts are short exposure scenes in between survival horror.I wish they put more effort into science fiction and less into crew members losing their minds.

This was second time I tried to watch this. First time I managed to get to through first 20 minutes. Movie reveals the story too slowly. There isn't much to reveal. Story is quite simple and characters are not too interesting. I need more than characters running and hiding from danger.

I remember seeing review by some horror guy who liked the movie. I am more of a science fiction guy. There wasn't too much for me. Story happened in science fiction setting and had good science fiction elements but they were too few and far between. The twist was good but I don't want to spoil it here.
