Editorial Reviews

Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Bill Paxton (Aliens) and Kevin Zegers (Dawn of the Dead), headline an all-star cast in this savage and unrelenting thriller about mankind's greatest enemy: himself. As an endless winter engulfs Earth, humans struggle to survive in remote underground outposts. When Colony 7 receives a distress call from a nearby settlement, Sam (Zegers) and Briggs (Fishburne) race through the snow on a dangerous rescue mission. What they find at the desolate base could mean mankind’s salvation—or its total annihilation. Terrifying discoveries will unfold that will change the rules of survival forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is okay July 29, 2013
By eoneill
If a cross between post apocalyptic fiction and John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars sounds good to you then you will love this movie. It was okay to watch, interesting and held my attention but I wouldn't buy the film, nor would I rush to a theater to spend $10 to see it. Not the best but not the worst film in the genre I have ever seen.

After seeing that this starred Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton, I thought I was in for at least an "OK" movie. However, this movie fell short in so many ways.

I would have gladly sat through a longer movie if they had included a background scene more clearly explaining how the current world arrived at the condition it is in. However, that scene is missing along with any real character development. I suppose if you just like movies with big explosions and blood and gore then by all means this movie is for you.

If you are looking for an "end of the world" future type movie with a fleshed out story, look elsewhere. It is a shame though as Bill Paxton and Laurence Fishburne have both done excellent movies in the past.

2.0 out of 5 stars Listen to everyone here...I did not and disappointed too September 2, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The Actors in movie also attracted me to watching this plus the theme of he movie.
It is one of the those instances where I have delayed watching it because of the review and just got bored so I ordered to watch not expecting much.

Even with my expectation not being there much in prior review..I was still surprised how cheap this movie was. It had potential but it is like everyone gave up on it.

If you are like me and can only be satisfied by watching this then keep ordering something else until it comes out on redbox for a $1.00.

Save your money. I really really mean that!

2.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of film footage September 21, 2013
The Colony(released April/13)stars,among others,Laurence Fishburne as Briggs,Kevin Zegers as Sam,Bill Paxton as Mason and Charlotte Sullivan as Kai.This film is yet another Armageddon film,trying to throw the guilts at each and every viewer for its subject matter and totally failing at its attempt to create any kind of excitement.
The story opens with two people getting attacked by an unseen force,down the end of a long corridor filled with huge pipes.Next we are introduced to the movies home base,Colony 7.This is the not too distant future and man's clumsy attempts at altering climate have fouled it completely.It is now a world of endless winters and everyone who survives,lives underground.Briggs is the one in charge of this colony and he has trouble with Mason,who was put in charge of taking care of the sick.Past protocol was to put people who came down with a simple cold,into quarantine then test them after.If they passed they were allowed back amongst the colony.If not they were given the option of "walking"(walking outside and away) or being shot.It seems Mason is shooting first and asking questions well afterwards.
Amidst this turmoil comes a distress call from Colony 5.Three leave to investigate,which includes Sam,Briggs and a young man who volunteers.They arrive the next day to find blood everywhere.We realize the opening of the film took place here.Inside they find one survivor who doesn't want to leave.They glean some important intel however on another colony elsewhere that has managed to turn on some old weather control equipment and has melted the snow and has sunshine.They also stumble upon a large group of colonist still alive who are now living off human flesh,and filing their teeth with bones so they are small and pointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars WE LIVE AND DIE BY THE RULES July 27, 2013
The film opens as a prepper's orgasm. 400 hundred people live underground in a self sufficient colony. The world has been hit by climate change, famine, and disease. Apparently the flu virus survives year round frozen temperatures. People who have a disease, are killed or forced to leave the colony to prevent infection. Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) is in charge of the colony. His antagonist is Mason (Bill Paxton) a man who has his own, less humane set of survival ethics.

When an incident happens at Colony 5 (they are #7) Briggs takes off to investigate along with Sam (Kevin Zegers) plus token landing party victim.

The post apocalyptic scenery was good. The acting was good. The plot didn't really go anywhere that I found interesting. I don't want to give a lot away, but they spent a lot of time building Sam's character for him to be the most boring of the lot. Things do pick up when they get to Colony 5, but it was too late in the film for them to finally introduce the action scenes.

A soft 3 stars.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is an okay horror movie July 30, 2013
Someone has fiddled with the weather, and mankind has become a few small collections of people fighting to survive against each other and a mutilated flu virus. Then the horror starts. Somehow it does not sound all that original.

The action itself although it tended to drag on, did have some interesting moments.

The filming itself was fairly ordinary. There were no fantastic special effects.

The acting itself was disappointing. You have some really good actors like Laurence Fishburne and they came out quite flat. None of the characters I thought were particularly interesting.

If you have nothing to do one evening, it may be worth a watch.

Better than what the poor reviews have stated, but still some plot holes and a dysfunctional ending. *Spoiler alert* Too bad the main actor dies long before the ending. Read more
