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.

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

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.

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.

Likely to be the year's most entertaining film withheld from critics, Neil Marshall's latest finds him pigging out at a B-movie buffet of bangers and mash. His alchemy of anarchy in the U.K. is exhilarating and playfully perverse.

Will go perfectly with "Mad Max" and "Escape from New York" as a trio of apocalyptic balls to the wall action fests...

About twenty minutes into it I decided to pretend it was a long-lost mid-'80s film Marshall had dusted off and put his name on.

Nothing about Marshall's grab bag has much to do with anything else...it may be aimless and arbitrary, but at least it's mostly fun.

Doomsday is an anarchic trip down memory lane.
