Goofs

If it were indeed cold enough to maintain almost constant snow, ice and cold as well as glaciers, then it would be too cold for the cannibals to travel far in without proper winter gear or head coverings. Hypothermia can set in within 30 minutes and the distance back to The Colony seems to be measured in dozens of miles. See more »

Just a film that could have been much better
23 July 2013 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Interesting atmosphere, solid set of actors, good opening of movie which draws you somewhat in, waiting what will happen next.

Solid graphics...

Film moves on and somewhere in the end of first third of it, CUT!.

Its like somebody came in to the set and said: "Wrap it up guys, we are closing!".

End is terrible, and over all everything that happens in first part of the movie is blown in the rest of the movie.

Nothing special, already seen, and definitely not gonna see it again. Not even recommended.

Its like short B-movie based on a short survival comic book story. Like I said i don't see what they where thinking, or what went wrong and who is a guilty party.

Graphics, actors, set, atmosphere, story, it all holds separately as parts of good movie but all together just fails terribly.
