The Colony Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Cinematographer Pierre Gill (Outlander) shot The Colony with the Arri Alexa. Post-production was completed on a digital intermediate, which would have been necessary even if it were not now standard practice, given the enormity of the digital effects. (Examples of the green screen work appear in the extras.) RLJ/Image Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has presumably been sourced from digital files, and its image retains the crisp detail and lack of noise, but without any digital harshness, for which the Alexa is noted. Blacks are inky, and the predominant palette is the steely blue of the now-frozen earth, with occasional interruptions by warmer tones in those portions of Colony 7 where good people like Kai have managed to preserve some semblance of humanity.

The average bitrate of 21.00 Mbps might be cause for concern in a production originated on film, but it's acceptable for digital origination, though I wish it were somewhat higher, since Image's customary BD-25 isn't even filled to capacity. Still, no obvious compression artifacts appeared.


The Colony Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's original 5.1 soundtrack is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA, and it effectively immerses the listener in the freezing winds and snows of this bleak world's perpetual winter. The interiors of the various colonies have different sonic qualities, depending on the location, with Colony 7's cavernous spaces sounding huge and open and Colony's 5's enclosures sounding more like factories and warehouses. Crossings on a massive but derelict girder bridge provide some unusual sonic moments, and an attack on Colony 7 by an unexpected route brings booms that echo to and from various parts of the listening space. Gunshots are distinctive, but none of the weapons involved are powerful enough for the kind of over-the-top wallop of an action movie; like the colonists themselves, these weapons are just managing to get by. More impressive are the screams and yells of the attackers, who seem to have resurrected the ancient art of the war cry (with help from the sound effects team).

Dialogue is clear throughout, and the score by Jeff Danna (Resident Evil: Apocalypse and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) is effective and energetic.
