The Colony (2013) Synopsis:

In a future where an ice age decimated the planet inhabitants, a colony of survivors receives an SOS signal from a nearby colony, leading them to put together a rescue team to look for survivors.

Old science fiction ideas are the main drawback of the film and the critics slammed the direction department for the mistakes. Still, this film is considered as an interesting film with a new storyline. The low budget was an advantage for the production department which became a set back for the whole unit.

The Colony (2013) Review:

The Colony is a post-apocalyptic/science fiction film blended with a monster film, in the vein of Alien or Pandorum. The sci-fi settings of an ice age world are not new, but always fascinating to me. However here, I found that, except for a few interesting concepts such as the quarantines, the universe created is not exploited enough. Some elements, such as the reverse-weather tower, are only briefly introduced and would have deserved a more in-depth explanation. Also, nothing ever explain how the world came to such disaster, all this is just summarized in one sentence in the movie, which is far from enough. This movie showcased the problems of Global warming and pollution in an interesting journal.

Rotten Tomatoes has given a score of 16% on the basis of 31 critics. Mixed reviews at the box office made this film as a decent one. This film got released in Canada on 26 April 2013 and was fair to watch.


Encourage the way of watching the movies in a fair way.
