With that in mind, Tim Fehlbaum’s film (co-writing alongside Mariko Minoguchi, Jo Rogers, and Tim Trachtec) appears ripe for a scathing social commentary on how humanity will always find a way to be its destroyer, yet where the film ends up is disappointingly a collection of tropes regarding movies about discovering ways to repopulate civilization.
This is made all the more frustrating considering The Colony does get off to an atmospheric start with astronaut Blake (Nora Arnezeder, often flat and unable to make the emotional beats resonate, although the blame is mainly on the cliché script that sinks the story the longer the movie goes on) crash landing back onto Earth. She is separated from her mission partner Tucker (Sope Dirisu), while still communicating, setting off to reach him as she explores her current location.
The landscapes are barren, there’s a thick white fog shrouding vision for miles, and there are unknown substances all over the beach-reminiscent terrain Blake decides to analyze. There’s an overwhelming sense of isolation and emptiness as she checks blood samples and wanders around a grimy and appropriately dour location. She also somewhat stumbles into accomplishing part of her mission early, discovering the environment allows its inhabitants to reproduce (I’m not entirely sure how that works beyond the vaguest of movie science, but she is also after a device that will prove her findings).
It also turns out that some survivors are leftover from the irreversible damage done to the planet, except they have gone mad and resemble troglodytes with slightly more intelligence. From here, The Colony is positioned to go in a refreshing direction, looking at what life is like for the few people that comprise future generations and how to re-create a functioning society. Not to mention, it’s also a terrifying look (and potentially a wake-up call for the deniers out there) at what might not be awaiting us, but our younger loved ones and their offspring.
