pandoricaDirector: Tom Paton

Starring: Jade Hobday, Marc Zammit, Adam Boyd, Luke D’Silva, Bentley Kalu, Amed Hashimi, Laura Marie Howard


Plot: Pandorica revolves around the leadership trials of The Varosha Tribe. Eiren, Ares and Thade are all in line to lead the next generation of their people. Only one of them will become leader but who will it be? Pandorica is an edge of your seat action horror that keeps the twists coming thick and fast.


There may be spoilers the rest of the review


Verdict: Bold Action Sci-Fi


Story: Pandorica starts in the future where the Great Reset has stuck the Earth where the few survivors have resorted back to tribe mentality. The tribe we follow is the Varosha and it has come to the time where they have to find a new leader and it is us to the current leader Nus (D’Silva) to put the three candidates Eiren (Hobday), Ares (Zammit) and Thade (Boyd) through the trials.

The trials put our candidates on a life or death battles against members of another tribe but is this really a test or just part of being a leader of a tribe?

Pandorica gives us a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film that brings everything back to the very human decisions we could have to make. While the whole films plays out like a test it does bottles down to the new leader being able to make the right decisions for the tribe in the future so we get to see the best and worst characteristic in people. I did like the small inclusion that swear words are in their own language which makes us see how personal the tribe feels too. My only negative comes from the accents which do seem to jump around at time.


Overall: Very interesting sci-fi film that does keep us guessing until the final act.
