The Sci-Fi genre has always suffered from a lack of movies, and Netflix has noticed the same. Thus, Netflix has expanded its boundaries and added The Colony, a German Sci-Fi film, to their library. However, the streaming platform has many movies and series out and not all of them are worth a watch. So we have come up with all the necessary details that will help you decide whether or not to stream The Colony.
The Colony synopsis and cast
What better way to judge a movie than reading its synopsis? Like every other movie in this genre, humans have exhausted Earth and have settled on a new planet (Kepler-209) in The Colony. But a research mission back on Earth sees a shipwrecked astronaut make tough choices that will affect humanity.
The cast is just as important as the synopsis of the movie. You might have not followed German actors, but you can always check out more of their work if it intrigues you. Following German stars have graced the lineup of this film:
- Nora Arnezeder as Blake
- Iain Glen as Gibson
- Sarah-Sofie Boussnina as Narvik
- Sope Dirisu as Tucker
- Sebastian Roche as Blake’s Father
- Joel Basman as Paling
Tim Fehlbaum has directed the 104-minute-long movie, and Lorenz Dangel has made music for the movie.
What do the critics say about The Colony on Netflix?
Critics bring you a different perspective about the movie. So, let us look at how The Colony has fared among the critics.
Monica Castillo from Roger E Bert says: “The Colony has many ideas about the future, and while not all of them quite stick together, there’s a few interesting aesthetic and narrative choices to make it something of a curiosity. There’s enough going on to capture your notice for brief stints before trailing off into dense plot details or well-worn sci-fi tropes.”
Screenrant says: “The post-apocalyptic 2021 sci-fi film The Colony, also known as Tides, has potential; however, the movie is plagued by the sort of fundamental problems that render a film completely devoid of entertainment value.”
So, what do you think? Have you decided to stream The Colony on Netflix or skip it?
