Filmmaker Neil Marshall delivers a blisteringly-paced opening stretch that effectively establishes the movie's dystopian landscape and the rough-and-tumble protagonists...

Doomsday does for the 1980s-style post-apocalypticism of Road Warrior what Grease did for the 1950s. It turns it into a kiddie musical. The difference is that people liked Grease.

...a Whitman's sampler of bizarre story ideas and visual gimmicks, congealing around a premise that is so straightforward that it affords them no groundwork for stability or realization.

I somehow ended up admiring "Doomsday" for being the most unapologetically ridiculously, preposterous action movie I've ever seen.

Marshall's adrenalin-fuelled skill and enthusiasm propel the action forward with reckless abandon.

In terms of sheer excitement, it's the best movie of 2008.

As it slogs through one hectic yet mundane set pieces after another, the film slowly drowns in its own pool of clichés.

One's enjoyment of Doomsday might stem from how much one admires a blatant homage to the 1980s.

Doomsday might seem novel - if you've never seen "The Road Warrior," "Aliens," "Escape from New York" or any other post-apocalyptic flick before.

A bit like a medley of greatest hits performed by a hot, young talent who brings a new vocal inflection to the tired, old standards.

Doomsday possède définitivement toutes les caractéristiques d'un film culte en devenir, même si celles-ci nous laissent toujours en tête une curieuse impression de déjà vu.

A tribute to the early 1980s anarchy actioners The Road Warrior and Escape From New York, Neil Marshall's Doomsday also blends elements from 28 Days Later for a fun and ultra-violent action-sci-fi-kinda-horror film.

Get your Mad Max mutant-maniacs-in-monster-machines on.

The movie doesn't disguise the fact that this is a loving homage to early 80's science fiction cult classics.

It's a mishmash of homages to writer/director Neil Marshall's favorite B movies. That doesn't make it bad at all, though; it ends up being quite entertaining.

Brimming with exploitation antics, grindhouse sensibilities and, heh heh, exploding bunnies, Doomsday conjures a future thrown back to the dead-end styles and amoral excesses of the eighties - and no future could be bleaker than that.

When the film's unspooling and we're watching Rhona Mitra drive a sports car through an exploding bus, we find ourselves in movie geek heaven.

After they blow a bunny to smithereens (aiming straight through a plot hole), I knew all bets were off.

The only thing that saves Doomsday from complete disgrace is that it knows it's trash.
