Storyline

In a dystopian future society, policing has been privatized by the government, and victims of crime and/or their families must pay the cost of investigating and punishing criminals. This measure has been adopted to facilitate the neutralization of dissidents by the government. A combined police and security corporation employs the latest hardware in order to closely monitor the population and eliminate any threats. Veteran detective Michael Kelly tries to accustom himself to this new, profit-oriented police organization and also to his new partner Jane Sikorski. These two officers have been assigned a "top priority" murder case, but everything about it is not as it seems. The killer manages to slip past all the high-tech security measures and does not even register on the all-seeing surveillance cameras, which indicates that he or she is not human! A beautiful and mysterious figure called Athena introduces Kelly to the world of "killer androids". These bio-mechanical devices are being... Written by ikiru

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
