The Colony Reviews
The women are so quick to play the "It's because I'm a woman" when all it is is "No - It's because you are stupid and entitled".
They all showed where their skills and experience might come in useful, but I couldn't get past the needy attitudes of many of the cast. My wife put it as "The guys are treating this like it is real, the girls remember it isn't and want to be treated like the princesses they think they are". If it was ACTUALLY as bad as this scenario is meant to demonstrate, many of them would have died.
Who doesn't like a Post Apocalyptic film, really? Throw in the timeless Lawrence Fishburne, the man would give credibility to a soiled diaper and the versatile veteran, Bill Paxton and the only thing missing is the popcorn! Fishburne and Paxton are flawless in portraying their characters in what can only be described as a launch pad for young and adequate, Kevin Zegers.
Director, Jeff Renfroe has been more involved with TV and although The Colony isn't a bad effort, it lacks that 'gripping' factor. Once the credits role you can't help but shrug and feel let down since the plot had so much potential. It's not a, bad film, it's more of a 'not bad' film. Something to consider watching on DVD if you've run out of choice.
When they lose contact with colony 5 Morpheus and two others decide to investigate.
Unsurprisingly they run into another group of people who have resorted to Cannibalism lost the ability to talk, have butchered everybody at colony 5 and have strange teeth.
Pretty gory but pretty shit.
It's brainless fun, gore a plenty, but utterly ridiculous.
