ALIENS SELECT EARTH AS THEIR NEXT TARGET FOR INVASION. ASSUMING HUMAN FORM, THEY RANDOMLY ABDUCT FOUR PEOPLE. WHAT THE ALIENS DON'T COUNT ON IS THE RESOURCEFULNESS OF THEIR PRISONERS. HUMAN WILL, DETERMINATION AND INGENUITY ARE SOON PUT TO THE ULTIMATE TEST AS THE GROUP DEPSERATELY FIGHTS FOR THEIR SURVIVAL.
Even connoisseurs of low-budget alien invasion flicks will be hard-pressed to recall one in which the weapon of choice for Earth's champion is a Swiss army knife. This alone makes The Colony a prime candidate for cheesiest movie ever shown on the Sci-Fi Channel.
Consider the opening credits--a naked blonde dances in slo-mo, languidly running her slender fingers over her--well, let's just say that what we're supposed to get from this dance solo is that the aliens are intrigued by the sensual possibilities of assuming human form. O-o-kay.... In any event, the premise here is that aliens have chosen Earth as their next target for invasion; quite naturally, they've decided that Southern California provides the optimum beachhead.
Our champion (Michael Weatherly) is one of four earthlings taken hostage aboard an orbiting space station by the alien invasion force. He and his companions have been abducted for study by an alien doctor, gamely, if not convincingly, portrayed by Isabella Hofmann. Of course, all the technical wizardry of a galaxy far, far away doesn't stand a chance against the Swiss army knife. The discerning viewer, therefore, will quickly overlook the plot to consider the deeper thematic question in The Colony--namely, why is our planet so often saved by blondes from Los Angeles? --Stephan Magcosta

Amazon really needs a BETTER selection of NON B movies for their Prime customers. Every time I find
a good one, there is a rental fee.
The morals of the aliens to treat humans like lab rats literally was disturbing. I know people who kill lab rats for dissection and these humans where treated like rats. The ending was a surprise happy ending. Overall, I wish the bad aliens would make peace with the humans but that was not possible except with just one alien.
Ok, now I'll go into the bad stuff. Maybe not. I was taught that if I can't say anything good then don't.... Oh forget that. The movie was awful Cheap sets. Poor acting, by some but not the worst I've seen on Amazon movies. Unbelievable plot. Really weird commercial breaks with a topless woman. So out of place, just to appeal to the teenage boy???
About the only fun thing was seeing Michael Weatherly in his pre-NCIS days.
