Goofs

The bridge, as others have pointed out, either would not be there given the glacier flow or would be encased in ice and snow. But assuming it as seen and given how long they have been living in the environment, the travellers would walk along the outside steel structure rather than risking the obviously fragile roadway and in any case would be carrying ropes and using team roping to secure against individual slips & falls when crossing such an obstacle.

Quotes

Sam: Is there anyone else? Is anyone else alive?
Leland: Define alive.

Fun throwback B-movie
6 May 2013 | by mpetrillo2See all my reviews

If you have an affinity for movies like The Warriors, Mad Max, Carpenter's The Thing, Craven's The Hills Have Eyes, you will be game for this fun b-movie. Imaginative and well-paced. Don't expect a 100 million dollar special-effects extravaganza with every little detail and character fleshed out to the extreme. That's not what these type of movies are for. The Colony is an economically told, well written, nicely shot, low-budget affair with engaging performances from all. You'll be surprised and impressed with how much the filmmakers accomplished with less than 20 million dollars. The authenticity of the underground colony is great (it doesn't feel like a film set) considering they filmed at the decommissioned NORAD facility in Northern Ontario.
