Review: 'The Colony's' gravest threat is a lack of distinction
Compassion and survival are made to duel once more in the unambitious sci-fi thriller "The Colony." In a post-apocalyptic future, Everyman Sam (Kevin Zegers) stands by while Mason (Bill Paxton), the ruthlessly practical leader of their Arctic settlement, executes anyone with a cough or a sniffle. "Nothing personal," shrugs Mason, looking about as remorseful for the corpse at his feet as he would for the bacteria he killed while washing his hands.
