Granted, I had little expectations to "Doomsday Device" (aka "Pandora's Box") when I sat down to watch this 2017 movie from director and writer Christian Sesma. Actually, I had not even heard about it prior to finding it by random luck in 2020. I liked the movie's cover, but seeing that Corin Nemec was in the movie, I must admit that expectations were low.
I believe in giving a movie a fair chance, so I sat down to watch this, and I managed to endure about 45 minutes or so, then I just had my share of rubbish nonsense, and I got up and turned off the movie.
The storyline in the movie is without a doubt one of the most idiotic and unrealistic storylines that I have seen in a disaster movie, and it wasn't even fun to watch. Some disaster movies are so cheesy and campy that they become fun to watch, because they are so bad. "Doomsday Device" was just downright and old-fashioned horrible.
The acting in "Doomsday Device" was as to be expected, for better or worse. So you know what you are getting yourself into here.
Do yourself a favor and stay well clear of this movie, because it simply isn't worth the time, effort or money.
