Rhona Mitra in an eye patch manages to look twice as hot as Angelina Jolie, but only half as hot as Kurt Russell. ... What? Don't look at me like that.

Gory violent post apocalyptic schlock that was done better by other films. There are shades of 28 days later, road warrior, and other films here that it liberally rips off but overall it's not completely terrible. The medieval armored soldiers living in a commune is pretty campy though.

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.

Neil Marshall's movies have the brains of a John Carpenter film, but not the coolness. So...dumb shit that isn't even anything. :/

A grindhouse homage to countless post-apocalyptic films that manages to remain extremely enjoyable throughout. Story-wise the film is all over the place and the plot doesn't bear thinking about but it's still a tremendously fun comedy. And if after watching a man get beaten to death with a pheasant, and a maniac in a car made from human skin, you didn't realise this was a comedy then you're beyond saving.

[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.

With the exception of the great car chase at the end, Marshall's follow-up to "The Descent" is a huge disappointment. Rhona Mitra is awful as an action heroine, her fight scenes are badly edited and the story is just a rehash of over a dozen good movies...trust me you'll notice immediately from which movie Marshall stole.

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...

Top badass moment? Let's go for the topical one of Prime Minister John Hatcher doing the 'right thing' when he realises he's got the Reaper virus. How many politicians can you say that about? (Doing the 'right thing' I mean, not catching deadly viruses.) It was certainly quicker than going to all the bother of seeing the Queen to tell her you're resigning. 0 cats and 4 decapitations. (There might have been 5 actually, but I sort of forgot to keep count.)

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...

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.

Doomsday is a film that wants you to have fun watching it. What it does is provide a solid two hours of entertainment. It's gory, over-the-top and action packed. It will take you from humorous scenes, to action scenes, with even a couple touching scenes sprinkled on top. It has issues, and is highly derivative from other post-apocalyptic films and other 1980's films. It keeps up the pacing it begins with, it doesn't get dull, and if you let it, the time will fly by while you watch it.

It's about one part Mad Max to about ten parts Escape From New York, but thrown into Scotland instead. Kind of weird how it took a little over 20 years for the whole country to devolve into pillaging cannibal rape-gangs, although instead of being a giant prison, the walled-off area was all infected with a crippling disease. Also, these barbaric cannibal rape-gangs are extremely forward-thinking when it comes to gender equality. I think they might have even had more women than men.
