Jae-Hyeok (Kim Nam-Gil) lives with his mother (Kim Young-Ae), his sister-in-law (Moon Jeong-Hee) and nephew Min-Jae (Bae Gang-Yoo) in a small Korean town. He is dating Yeon-Joo (Kim Joo-Hyun), while working at the local nuclear power plant. Meanwhile, Pyung-Sub (Jung Jin-Young) works at the same nuclear power plant. He is worried about conditions there, but nobody in the government listens to him. An earthquake strikes the small town where Jae-Hyeok lives and causes explosions at the nuclear power plant. The situation quickly spirals out of control, leading the entire nation to panic. To prevent another nuclear disaster, Jae-Hyeok and his co-workers return to the nuclear power plant.
So, nuclear power plant and authorities that just think about themselves...
What could go wrong, right? You have no chance of things blowing up and a catastrophe happening. "Pandora" would like to disagree with you.
The story of the people that work at and live around a nuclear power plant in South Korea, "Pandora" will strike a chord with the viewer, bring a tear to their eyes, and give some food for thought. However, a too long running time and a penchant for cheesy moments drag the story a little bit.
And it is a pity, because the critique of selfish governments, rushed up cover-ups is full of energy and you will fall for the alluring power of the rousing speeches and the incredible images, with a dark and broody atmosphere that permeates every frame.
