Goofs

In the beginning of the movie a wind turbine is seen with wings having their trailing edge into the wind instead of its leading edge. The wings are either constructed for counter-clockwise rotation (in the movie the turbine rotates clockwise) or are pitched around 180 degrees. Either way, the turning of the turbine is impossible with this blade configuration. See more »

Why doing bad when yo can do good?
24 July 2013 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about this film I thought it was going to be like "It" (80's version, of course)or even "30 days of night". I love apocalyptic movies mixed with frozen world and eventually with monsters. Unfortunately, "The collony" turned to be another inconsistent and time- wasting entertainment movie. Yes, I'm talking about usual empty characters, boring plot and of course a good looking hero unable to express anything. A bit of action at the beginning but after knowing the villains you realize nothing good will come. Hollywood guys, please, you have huge resources, spend some more bucks on the script and on the casting and save on fx, anybody can create explosions on the computer but doing a good film is beyond that.
