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.

How do the cannibals then get out to track the guys back to Colony 7?
Moon Donkey
There is nothing in this movie I have not seen in other better movies, it was quite a waste of time.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Every once in a while a movie comes along that is so bad that it makes me think I could do better writing movies myself. The Colony is one of these movies.

I won’t go into the plot details – others have done that. Besides, the plot is terrible… no need to re-hash it. However, I must point out some things that bothered me.

First, when the guys from Colony 7 blow up the entrance to Colony 5, the explosion makes no sense. The entrance to Colony 5 is inside a giant brick smoke stack and down a tunnel. I can’t say how far down that tunnel goes, but it seems pretty far… maybe 50 or 100 feet. So in order to blow up the entrance and after escaping the crazed cannibals, one guy lights the fuse on a pack of dynamite… I’m thinking it was perhaps 3 sticks or 4 at the most. Then he throws the dynamite back into the smoke stack entrance and the entire base of the stack explodes. Now wait a minute – what happened to the tunnel going down? If you throw dynamite into the entrance isn’t it going to fall 50 or 100 feet before going off? Watch the explosion (I did repeatedly) – the bottom of the stack explodes as though the dynamite were centered at the base of the stack. Uhhhhhh…. It’s not. It would have fallen down the tunnel. Is this a minor point? I’d say no actually. If someone throws dynamite down a hole I’d expect the explosion to take place at the bottom of the hole, not at the top as thought the dynamite hovered in mid-air or something.

Second, ok… so the entrance was blown up. How do the cannibals then get out to track the guys back to Colony 7? Wasn’t the entrance (and exit) just blown to bits? Well, perhaps there was a back door or something.

Third, exactly how many of these cannibals are there anyway?
