Doomsday tries to combine lots of films from Mad Max to 28 Days Later but never succeeds in it. Script is really bad and even the numerous action scenes are mostly boring.

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...

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.

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.

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.

A collection of random, yet pointless, action set-pieces thrown together without the glue of a plot to tie it all together. A film riddled with so much implausibility and so many illogical points that your head may explode if you try to make sense of it. Imagine if Mad Max 3 and Escape from New York had a bastard child with none of its parents' good traits but all of the bad... and then some. Avoid at all costs.

See this, Mr Tarantino, is how to make a homage that doesn't bore the pants off people. Willfully silly and I like it for that. Extra marks for driving a Bentley through a bus and doing the Michael Bay shot at the same time.

Imagine Escape from LA performed by the Cirque du "Sol"eil (see what I did there?) featuring a punked out Craig Conway shaking his booty to "Good Thing" by the Fine Young "Cannibals" (see what they did there?). Now picture a renaissance faire complete with a fiberglass castle, Malcolm McDowell, AND a wizened scribe to boot. What is that I hear? The soft whisperings of a 'w'? The tintinnabulations of a 't'? The fleeting flatulence of an 'f'? Yes, I know what that spells. Doomsday.

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.
