[Unrated] - Promising premise about a virus-infected and physically quarantined Scotland, and the survivors going all MadMax and medieval on an incoming small group. Unfortunately this rushes through with lazy storytelling and a few too many cheap action-scenes inbetween decent splatter and fun; overall this isn't a doomsday to remember. *Preview*: #12#, exp-3*, popcorn, story, creator Marshall/1, R2.

Mix of "Escape from New York" with dash of "Mad Max" and some "Resident Evil". Oh, and it goes medieval too. Sounds like someones wet dream, but doesn't even qualify to be 'so bad it's good'. But I guess it could work with lots of booze and a good mood.

Takes it one or two steps further than 28 days later. Has some good action, but Rhona Mitra isn't to believable in the role of the protagonist.

"If Marshall's goal was to deliver a no-nonsense, tongue-in-cheek, mega-violent "throwback" action flick, I'd say he's done a damn fine job of it."

Damn that flick was so unbelievable boring :-/ . After I´ve seen the Trailer a few Month before I expected a good Movie with an apocalyptic feeling.. but that was nothing...really disappointing!

A shameless rip-off of equal parts The Road Warrior, Escape From New York, and (so I'm told) Excalibur that ultimately works so long as you're down for some relatively mindless entertainment. I suppose if you're going to rip off other films, you should probably pick great ones; this film is a great, fun example of that mash-up mindset.

Hvorfor 30?? Fordi det er lykkeds at lave en film med så mange rip-offs og så meget unødvendig splat, at det bør belønnes. Filmen er komisk i sit forsøg på at blive taget alvorligt...

Everything was thrown into Doomsday but the kitchen sink, unfortunately, it all does not necessarily go together well. That being said, this is a fun movie. Many reviewers have called it a rip-off, I like to think of it as an homage. Escape From NY, The Mad Max series, and even a bit of Conan at the end, it's all in here. Important to mention is Rhona Mitra, who plays one of the most bad ass female heroines I've ever seen. Loved the song choice at the end. Not a "must see", but watch it for fun.

Starts off moderately interesting but quickly turns itself into a shameless Mad Max rip-off. Nothing new to see here. I'd advise you to skip it.

Didn't have high expectations but they were still all crushed. I've never seen such boring action. The movie is set in the future, so why the hell did they have knights, that's right, like 13th century type knights. Such an unintentionally funny movie. Grade: F

I actually really enjoyed this movie for what it is. There are FAR too many movies out nowadays with the virus plot. What made this one different for me was the group of colorful characters in it.

Apparently you can't leave the Scots alone for 30 years without them reverting to the Dark Ages. The beginning is very promising but as soon as the action starts everything goes to shit and the movie becomes an awkward mishmash of various movies. It's a shame since the premise is great and one that I often think about when watching mediocre apocalypse/zombie movies.

People liked this, apparently? All I saw was a clumsy mix of already existing films with no entertainment inbetween. Not as fun as Dog Soldiers but not as boring as The Descent.

Look, I like postapokalyptic nonsense as much as the next man, but while I can easily turn my blind eye to the similarities with Escape From New York, the 1980s Trauma-styled punk-cannibals were a bit much to take in. That said, it wasn't until the heroine found herself in a jousting contest, with ACTUAL MEDEVIL KNIGHTS (and an angry Malcolm McDowell), that I finally facepalm'ed so hard that I lost conscience...

Ok, I'm gonna be weird here and say I actually liked this movie. Don't get me wrong, I shouldn't - it's bad. It cribs from a dozen better movies, is dissapointing coming from Marshall, and is all around ridiculous and silly. BUT, the movies it rips off actually make it feel more like an homage than a plagiarism, and the mashup of them somehow works. I really liked how half the outcasts went Mad Max and the other half went King Arthur.Not a movie to take seriously, but fuck it, its kinda fun.

Utter B-movie junk, but superbly enjoyable B-movie junk. I am recommending this, but don't watch it expecting some huge level of quality. If you don't like goofy b-movies you're not going to like this--Rhona Mitra looks fantastic the whole time, though.
