The Colony

I am going to ignore the preachy global-warming aspect of this movie and focus on something else. The official tag/quick description of the movie is this: “Forced underground by the next ice age, a struggling outpost of survivors fight to preserve humanity against a threat even more savage than nature.” Now what in the world could that threat be? Hmmmmmmm….

 

Reavers…?

 

Yep, you are right. They kinda, sorta ripped off Mr. Whedon’s bad guys from Firefly. Humans who lose themselves and become savages and do unspeakable acts against other humans. Sounds like Reavers to me! Right down to the filed to a point teeth. There’s nothing wrong with that. It is a time honored villain, the human race, they just need to give credit where credit is due. 🙂

As far as the movie as a whole…. Besides the aforementioned preachiness, the CG world looks pretty cool. The whole look and feel of the movie seems pretty good really. Little known fact about this one; this is the first movie shot 60 stories below the surface of the Earth in the former NORAD government facility. So that is pretty darn awesome. This is already out in a few different countries but no set release date here in the US as of now. (That I can find anyway)
