    Synopsis


    The Colony
    The desperate survivors of a new Ice Age contend with sickness and infighting while attempting to contact the inhabitants of another outpost that's gone mysteriously silent in this claustrophobic thriller from writer/director Jeff Renfroe (One Point O, Civic Duty). Mother Nature has cast an icy spell over the Earth once again, driving the few remaining pockets of humanity deep underground. Under the leadership of Briggs (Laurence Fishburne), the inhabitants of Colony 7 have managed to endure against all odds. They've been maintaining close contact with Colony 5, the only other dominion known to have weathered the chilling winds above, when their radios go mysteriously silent. Determined to find out exactly what happened in Colony 5, Briggs ignores the objections of his vocal rival Mason (Bill Paxton), assembles a team, and ventures out to investigate. By the time Briggs and his crew discover exactly what they're dealing with at Colony 5, however, their own base may have already been compromised. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This film takes place in 2045 in a world reduced to an "ice age" due to global warming when "weather machines" fail. The survival of the the human race depends on living in controlled environments underground. The balance of harvesting food and disease prevention allows for a constant level of stress throughout the group with some handling it well and others not so well. Problems arise when those that don't handle the anxiety well have guns. Problems also arise when some lend themselves to harvesting humans instead of crops. These events help create an entertaining and well thought out story with imaginative sets through out and great acting. For sci fi buffs this is one of those gems you hear little about but when you find it...yeah!

      A good scifi theme of an ice world - earth gone wrong via mans science- is a backdrop for a tale of survival that lacks any "epic" characters that would be the survivors is such a place, save for the throw back bad guy who only grunts and howls, the plot evokes little emotion or real suspense, which it could if polished and focused around the plot that does have potential, most of the characters lack any depth or emotions other than terror and teenage love and and as a whole the movie is just "OK"

      Cheap sci-fi

      The film is a post-apocalyptic story told on a limited budget. There are no great plot twists and the few interesting story ideas presented are left unexplored. It wants to be a scary sci-fi film like the Thing, but the dialogue and the very premise don't live up to this comparison. There are much better movies out there.

      This is a good movie about how some humans would act in a disaster. The earth is in a constant winter pattern & humans have gone underground to survive. It shows how the strong take control & dictate to the weaker people, what they can or can't do. Then the worst cenerio, humans eating humans. Turning into savages & cannibals.

      Below average movie with a very predictable plot. Great cinematography but not enough going for it to save the movie. But the price was cheaper than going to the theater.

      Bill Paxton and Laurence Fishbourne are great actors, if only the writers would have given them something better to work with.
