Pandorum

Directed by Christian Alvart (Alliance)

When an astronaut from the distant future (Ben Foster) revives after a century-plus of hyper-sleep, he finds himself on a space ship 500 miles from Earth, floating in a large dunk tank. His shipmates include flesh-eating mutants, a hot girl and the seemingly sane Commander Payton (Dennis Quaid). The group may know kung-fu, but they don't know that they're suffering from Pandorum, a disease contracted in hyper-sleep---its symptoms range from reduced motor skills to a fondness for murder. Alas, they're not the only ones suffering: Pandorum (the movie) is about as titillating as watching somebody play Nintendo for 108 minutes straight. The action's impressive, but it's hard following a story where there isn't one. Hyper-sleep beckons.
