“The Colony.” The post-apocalyptic film 2021 sci-fi Colony, also known as Tides, is powerful; however, the movie is plagued with a kind of basic problems that give the film a completely unattractive effect. Scientific myths are dry – especially brain issues – and there are many ways in which a solid foundation can be severely damaged. The colony is a prime example of this: oppressive future dystopia is an exciting concept, but unequal planning, poorly developed characters, and a lack of inner sense make the movie impossible to enjoy.
The Colony (2021): Movie! Overview
Written and directed by Tim Fehlbaum, The Colony is a future German-Swiss action-thriller, after a world catastrophe that made the planet uninhabitable. Although the “elite” members of the human race who managed to escape the space included Kepler’s colony, the mysterious forces eventually created infertility within the colony.
A team – the Ulysses – was sent to Earth to determine whether it was safe to colonize or not. The mission was thought to have failed when astronauts failed to send a message to their people. Years ago, a second group – Ulysses 2 – was sent to Earth to try again. Nora Arnezeder stars such as Blake, a medical expert with Ulysses 2 and the daughter of one of the astronauts who appeared in the first mission.
Surprisingly (not so), Blake and only one member of his surviving crew, Tucker (played by Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù) were attacked by the survivors of the massacre. Blake was thrilled to find that these people were giving birth – his team had been sent to test the “pregnancy” power of any life left on Earth, and they were no doubt expecting to find mammals, let alone humans. Blake befriended a young girl named Malia (Bella Bading), and when the child was abducted by Gibson (Iain Glen), Blake decided to help his mother, Narvik (Sarah-Sofie Boussnina), rescue him.
Fehlbaum did an excellent job of building the earth at The Colony, introducing a type of Earth that is deeply immersed underwater and sympathetic to the tides and waves (hence the first article). Unfortunately, all the beauty used to mimic the complex, often complex, the reality of this New World seems unattractive.
This approach makes sense: this is a very unhealthy world, and the filthy, decaying remnants of society are imitated by monochromatic sets and heavy use of fog. The problem, however, is that the whole movie is like this – even from Kepler’s background, it depends heavily on the cool tones, the blurred vision, and the bright lights.
The colors in all the scenes run together like ink on a wet newspaper. This may have been a formal choice, but in the case of cinema, it’s not original enough to force or play enough to not be forgotten. At the very least, the overall picture is narrow and illogical, much like the film itself.
The building in The Colony is confused. The movie begins with an unflattering sequence that cuts through the high stakes, the fiery arrival of fire with silent text frames (styled similar to silent movie statements – potentially accidental) that cast a lot of exposure to the audience. But even if you have descriptive information from the title cards, it’s never immediately clear what’s going on, why any characters are doing what they’re doing, or what the poles are.
Events take place mainly to set points for the latest structure; some releases are good, but the structure of the main story needs to have a basic concept. The characters are always self-explanatory, but even if that doesn’t help to make the movie less confusing because there is no motive for the action, the sequence of events sounds random and, at times, unwanted. In short, Colony is a lot more meaningful than a story.
The combination of bland visuals and thoughtless storytelling makes Colony unpopular. Hardcore fans of this genre can enjoy the story’s dedication to the basic tropes – the “twist” of a real astronaut who turns out to be a naughty idiot, a place to try to be sexually assaulted, a shotgun, a mushy, gray, unhealthy environment, and a continuing threat of violence. But most spectators will be bored. The Colony fails completely as entertaining, and, very much as natural the main character finds himself in, especially the motto.
The colony was first screened at the 71st Berlin International Film Festival and released in North America by Saban Films on August 27, 2021. It is 104 minutes long and is rated R for specific violence.
