Movie Review: The Colony

The Colony

The Colony starts off with an all too familiar premise- the end of the world as we know it. It is a ho-hum movie that seems to take elements of its plot from previous blockbusters.

We have a zombie apocalypse that is akin to the’ Walking Dead’ or the film ’28 Days’. We see the seemingly irrational beings who turn out to be organized and united like the ones in ‘I Am Legend’. There’s the sudden drop of temperature for the entire planet which is reminiscent of ‘The Day After Tomorrow’.

The parallel plot may come across as annoying to avid movie fans but infrequent viewers might find it interesting still. The film is set well into the future where extreme temperatures have forced men to build colonies deep into the ground. Food is rationed and health is of the utmost importance….a simple cold can be reason enough for execution. Then a distress call arrives from a neighboring colony to which selected members respond to and all hell breaks loose. The story develops slowly but eventually gives brief moments of suspense. The chase and fight scenes are enough to get the adrenalin pumping but the conclusion is predictable and expected.

The Colony hits Philippine cinemas on September 28. See trailer below
