Where did you watch this movie?

The desperate survivors of a new ice age contend with sickness and infighting while attempting to contact the inhabitants of another outpost that's gone mysteriously silent in this claustrophobic thriller from writer/director Jeff Renfro (One Point 0, Civic Duty). Mother Nature has cast an icy spell over the earth once again, driving the few remaining pockets of humanity deep underground. Under the leadership of Briggs (Laurence Fishburne), the inhabitants of Colony 7 have managed to endure against all odds. They've been maintaining close contact with Colony 5, the only other dominion known to have weathered the chilling winds above, when their radios go mysteriously silent. Determined to find out exactly what happened in Colony 5, Briggs ignores the objections of his vocal rival Mason (Bill Paxton), assembles a team, and ventures out to investigate. By the time Briggs and his crew discover exactly what they're dealing with at Colony 5, however, their own base may have already been compromised. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

When the world changes the rules of survival change with it
In the first scene, where the man and woman are being chased through a tunnel, the man wears a thick down jacket in the first shot. In the second shot he just wears a sweater. In the third shot he wears his jacket again. When they finally reach the door, he is just wearing his sweater again.

Factual Mistake
In the beginning of the movie a wind turbine is seen with wings having their trailing edge into the wind instead of its leading edge. The wings are either constructed for counter-clockwise rotation (in the movie the turbine rotates clockwise) or are pitched around 180 degrees. Either way, the turning of the turbine is impossible with this blade configuration.

Revealing Mistakes
Towards the beginning when they cross the bridge there is almost no snow on the bridge. The bridge should be completely frozen and covered in snow, not the clearest and least frozen place they hike through.
The first movie to be shot at the decommissioned NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) base in North Bay, Ontario, Canada.
