Had some interesting ideas but becomes amateurish and repetitive
27 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pandora Machine did intrigue me, but it failed to deliver on the most part. It is not completely unwatchable, the ideas were interesting in hindsight, the two main characters did have some likability and the acting of the two leads and the ending while far from great were not bad. However, I did find the stock cuts and the security scenes very repetitive after a while, while the music is completely overpowering and doesn't fit very well with the mood. The graphics/effects are very amateurish-looking looking as if they were done in minutes, and the settings were too dully lit even for the atmosphere and just don't engage. The story had potential but spoilt by very derivative execution, a complete lack of focus as the film never knows what it wants to do or be, sluggish pacing and the atmosphere and suspense just weren't there. The dialogue is at best pitiful, the characters on the whole are shallow and the acting apart from the leads is reminiscent of a really bad porn movie. I don't know about you but the title came across as irrelevant to me.

All in all, amateurish and repetitive that while not irredeemable does little with the potential it had. 4/10 Bethany Cox
