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!

Worst 'Aliens' Rip Off Ever! (That's Saying A Lot)
8 October 2013 | by chow913See all my reviews

Behold the 'Alien/Aliens' rip offs. They were big in Italy in the 80s and some were actually worth watching as they were different takes on the classic story. Even worse they all had the same title, 'Alien 2.' (not kidding, there were several Italian films with this title) The worst by far was the one taking place in the Venice sewers where Italians dressed like Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, and Bill Paxton, used pump shotguns which did not actually fire anything, eject shells, or even produce muzzle flare at NOTHING! Footage of cheap puppets was added later.

'Pandora Machine' makes the above film look like 'Citizen Kane!' 'Pandora Machine is as bad as it gets! Take refugees from a scifi convention with air soft guns, filming with a camcorder in their parents' basement.

Much like the cheap pump shotguns which fired nothing, ejected no shells, and produced no muzzle flare, these kids' air soft guns also do NOTHING! They're not even real looking guns! The dialogue is truly as bad as it gets. "I'll shove this gun up your fxxx hole!" Get ready for 90 minutes of that.

Other scenes which show just how juvenile these film makers are is a gratuitous out of place girl on girl kiss.

Clearly this whole film is merely the result of kids with air soft guns, a camcorder, and a free weekend while their parents' were out of town.
