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.

"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."

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.

I've never really been keen on Neil Marshall's movies, but Doomsday is probably my least favourite yet. It tries to be brainlessly gory and enjoyable, but for me it never pulled this off. The gore is for the mostpart not really entertaining at all, the action is stupendous and the whole movie is generally quite tasteless. The obvious divide between the cultures of the tribes was interesting for a while but there are loads on inconsistencies and puzzlements over the car chase scenes. Not great.

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

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.

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.

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...

Starts off promising, but every twenty minutes the movie reaches a new stupidity-level that makes what came before seem sensible by comparison. Horrible editing in the action scenes will drain all the fun out of them, despite some nicely done gore effects.

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...

This movie is adorable. Horrible, yes, but adorable. I don't think Neil Marshall knew what kind of movie to make so he made three movies at the same time, all of them bad. Of course, it also has the most glaringly obvious product placement, which is de rigueur at this point.

A mixture of elements from all film genres is thrown into Doomsday, a gory and overly violent post apocalyptic sci-fi homage. It respectfully borrows and divides its plotline from Mad Max and Escape from New York. This intelligent mash-up of films combines to make a fun, bloody, illogical, shameless and nonsensical laughfest of a film. Just turn your brain off and enjoy it as it is.
