Groups of people - colonies - are forced underground due to another ice age. Colony 7 goes to check on Colony 5, which they lost contact with. When they get there they find that the colony has fallen and there is a whole new enemy that they have to face on their way back.Written by
Has three actors who have appeared in films with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Laurence Fishburne appeared in 'Red Heat' (1988), Bill Paxton appeared in 'True Lies' (1994) and Kevin Zegers is set to appear in '478' (2016). See more »
The bridge is shown to have random nearly-circular holes punched through the reinforced concrete on its deck, but almost no damage to its steel superstructure. An ice storm or ice age would not have caused damage like that; nor would any other condition shown in the movie. See more »
There's no one here. We only knew that you were here because of the knocking.
Yeah, but I didn't knock.

One of the worst films I've paid to see in years...
While I do believe the story line here had tremendous potential, hence the reason I went to see 'The Colony' in the first place, the whole experience truly was a let down. The plot line was far too predictable and reminiscent of '30 Days of Night' which was a far superior cinematic experience for the genre.
'The Colony' left many unanswered questions from beginning to end, like how the climate truly turned so cold based on man-made weather stations to the point in the movie where it seemed this effect was being reversed. By the end of the film I hoped we'd get some answers on that score but that was left hanging.
And of course what led to the entire break down of civilization as a whole which is the underlying story of this movie beyond the clichéd explanation that people will do almost anything under great stress doesn't go far enough.
I think in the end I was looking for a more intelligent film which is what actors like Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton have brought to projects in the past, I'm a little surprised they agreed to do this film on the script alone.
