Summary: Authorities brutally quarantine a country as it succumbs to fear and chaos when a virus strikes. The literal walling-off works for three decades until the dreaded Reaper virus violently resurfaces in a major city. An elite group of specialists is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means possible.
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.
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.
My justification for liking this movie? It's fun. This isn't any of those genres it's listed as, it's an all out comedy! If you rate this movie low because it didnt live up to your post apocalyptic standings, look at it from the "so stupid it must be a joke" point. If you managed to take this movie seriously you might be one of those who needs background laughter to realise it's a joke.
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.)
