Terrible cinematography/editing during fight sequences. They cut so fast and frequently to so many dizzying angles that the intent of sped up choas is lost to confusion and a headache. Otherwise, not bad...and yeah, a madmax ripoff, but still fun.

Only purchased for Rhona Mitra - the film itself is horrible.

Kate Beckinsale...I mean Rhona Mitra stars in this post-apocalyptic movie in about 30 years after an initial virus outbreak which caused Scotland to be walled off. She is sent in to find the medical researcher who was working on a cure. Along the way she meets up with both a Mad Max style world and one that is from the middle ages. It felt really weird to go from far future, to Mad Max, to the middle ages. It just didn't mesh well at all. Doesn't help that the story isn't that interesting or anything you have seen before. Nothing really stood out that was enjoyable except for the long car chase at the end which was pretty neat. Outside of that, this movie just had no idea what to do with what it was trying to do.

Very enjoyable film although it did go a bit mad and crazy.

gloriously violent and over the top. The film does deserve kudos for originality and rhona mitra is a hot and great heroine to this action scifi apocaltic adventure.

Rips off a lot from Mad Max, 28 Days Later, and Land of the Dead. This movies clichà (C)s and plot holes don't leave much to enjoy.

A harsh look at the panic that occurs when a country faces death on a grand scale gives this film a brutal edge that is really seen. Cinematography is of the highest standard giving a brash edge to the lighting and CGI allowing a visual that is worthy of watching. Actors give an admirable characterization for a believable and realistic look at the dark side of humanity. Nibbles: Haggis.

My only negative criticism is the genre swapping featured in this movie, it comes off as an action picture one minute, the next a survival thriller, then a post apocalypse movie and suddenly a historical epic, it's as if director Neil Marshall is desperate to try and fit in every type of movie into one. Other than that one issue, Doomsday is magnificent! Gloriously bloodthirsty, totally action packed and frightening in many ways. From the opening scene there are some horrific images of viral outbreaks, injured people and massacre, it's clear from then that this movie isn't for people with weak stomachs. The camerawork is stunning, epic slow motion shots of destruction, fighting and breathtaking escape sequences, this movie excels in nearly all departments. The cast are brilliant, MyAnna Buring is a favourite of mine after watching her in The Descent, and especially Rhona Mitra who is badass and seriously slick as Eden Sinclair, the lead character. For such a small budget Doomsday looks like top class film, the scale is huge both in terms of landscape, destruction and cinematic scope. A must see movie, it does have it's cheesy moments but they are damn right enjoyable, guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face and on the edge of your seat.

Okay, I have to say it, With all those F'ing cow running around why would they turn to cannibalism???? Other than that it was reasonably entertaining

After finishing this film, I couldn't help but think that Marshall needs to stay in the low-budget horror genre where he seems to thrive. In Doomsday, director and screenwriter Neil Marshall took on a much, much larger world than he had in Dog Soldiers and The Descent, and although glimmers of his story telling ability exist, for the most part this movie falls flat. One of the things that Marshall excelled at was character development and character interactions, and it feels like he bit off a little more than he could chew here. Doomsday also marks his first overt attempt at adding some societal commentary into a movie, which just seems to muddle the plot. The acting was okay... Not nearly as good as in his first two films, but okay. With all of that said, the story was relatively interesting and it kept me entertained up until the last ten or so minutes when it just got ridiculous. I'd compare this movie to the first Resident Evil in that both heroines must go into a quarantined area, complete a mission, and escape with there lives. There are other similarities as well. Bottom line, yeah, Doomsday is entertaining, but that's about it. Genre fans will probably find something to like, but I doubt anyone else will.

Being a person that absolutely loves the Mad Max trilogy, John Carpenter's Escape films, and Waterworld, it was practically inevitable that I would fall in love with Doomsday. It feels like an odd blend of Mad Max, Escape From New York, and 28 Days Later, but it was a divine combination to me and I was never bored since the film had plenty to offer, especially in terms of post-apocalyptic films. It has a corny plot, corny acting, ridiculously over the top action scenes, gory violence, awesome music, and stylish direction. To me, Doomsday is one of the most underrated action films ever made. I hope it gets better appreciation as the years go by, but we'll just have to see.

just watched this again, and it's as good as before.

im amazed at how one movie could have everything that i love in it:
sword fights, zip lines, eye patches, knights, gladiator pit, post-apoc awesome people, sup girl, dirt bikes, car chases, shotguns, tanks, gas masks, ruined cities, castles, epic lord of the rings helicopter shots, and so much sweet action

Neil Marshall RULES!!

Somebody has been watching Mad Max.

The man behind Dog Soldiers and The Descent, decides to steal imagery from Mad Max, Escape from New York and other movies without any context.

It starts with the UK under the plague of a virus (28 Days Later anybody?), but instead of zombies it's a disease. The protagonist is a Snake Plisken look-a-like only a female instead of a male, carried with a task of finding a doctor to find a cure. Sounds simple right? Think again. The Scottish from dumb reason, go half-naked with bondage gear, make-up tattoos and tight leather. The WTF scale goes off the charts when they escape with fully-functional steam engine (which will never work today) into a forest only to be captured and taken to a castle. That's when the movie jumped the shark. It appears that Neil Marshall is over his head in paying tribute to what genre he's doing. He doesn't know whether he should do a love letter to mind-blowing action flicks, or a serious post-apocalyptic disaster movie.

Many of the characters are flat and one-note. It doesn't help that the actors are so dull, they knew this movie will never be a huge hit. The film doesn't give us a chance to like them or relate to them. Which what happens if you go over your head in paying tribute of homage to a genre you grew up watching.

The Indiana Jones series is better homage, since they put different spins on them instead of just copying scenes and plots. Planet Terror and Death Proof did the same thing, mostly due to the fact that Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez have a passion for movies so much, they knew how to their own signature on familiar genres. Nobody should have high hopes for this, even for curiosity sake.

good for when you want to watch a simple gory action movie
July 12, 2013
An okay movie this movie has a decent plot and some likable characters which do make up for the lazy moments in the film. overall Doomsday is a pretty decent movie to see if you like films about epedemics, political conspiracies, cannabals and a phobia of viruses

This film rips off too many other films including (mad max 3, aliens and The road warrior) and not as good as any of them. The whole thing is one big mess and a lot of nonsense, for instance Scotland had been quarantined for 30 years,no food or fuel etc yet they have cars, buses and other vehicles, not too mentioned they've gone back to the middle ages but in a mad max style.
June 11, 2013
I'm watching it right now.
