Movie Info

Entranced by his boss's persuasive vision of a suburban community that is completely safeguarded from the world's ugly realities, an executive eagerly buys a home within the enclave. But soon after his arrival, he realizes that the price of safety is paid with something more precious than money: privacy and personal freedom. When he sees that death is the penalty for rule breaking, he tries to escape. But he and his brood soon discover that getting out of "The Colony" can be a dangerous endeavor.

The Colony is marginally entertaining, if only on a let's-see-just-how-predictable-this'll-wind-up-getting sort of way.

Audience Reviews for The Colony

(* 1/2): [img][/img] Way too corny and predictable for my tastes but I found Ritter to be fine in his role.
