Disappointing love letter to 80s post apocalyptic sci-fi/action films

I really wanted to love this film, but it sadly disappoints. "Doomsday" is a love letter to "Escape from New York" and "The Road Warrior" with it's story of a deadly viral outbreak in Scotland that causes the entire northern part of the UK to be walled off and it's inhabitants left to their own devices for survival. The story then picks up 30 years later when the British government finds themselves needing to go back into the quarantined zone to search for the virus' origin after it resurfaces outside the walls in London. Rhona Mitra, complete with a Snake Pliskeen-style eyepatch, leads an elite group of soldiers inside the walls to search for their goal, fighting off various wasteland inhabitants. This part of the film worked well as fun homage to John Carpenters "Escape from New York," but when the story takes an unexpected turn following Mitra's escape from the city into the picturesque countryside, where survivors have formed a medieval society led by Malcolm McDowell, it's too much of a genre shift to be believed or enjoyed. A homage to John Carpenter and George Miller is one thing, but when writer/director Neil Marshall decides to thrown in a "Excalibur" and "Highlander" homage, that's a bit much. The film does come to life again in the final third act, which involves an extended Road Warrior-like car chase through the wastelands, but Marshall is sadly no George Miller when it comes to action, though in all fairness, who is? Although I may seem mostly negative in my review, there really is a lot to like. Rhona Mitra is very good in the lead, the urban wasteland production design and costume design are both spot on, as are the car designs in the final Max Max inspired sequences. Marshall is a talented director ("The Descent" is a genuine horror classic), but "Doomsday" is not up to Carpenter and Miller standards. If a filmmaker wants to make a homage such as this, it either needs to be able to live up to it's source material or it needs to be able to offer something new. "Doomsday" offers neither. Quentin Tarantino manages to do both brilliantly in nearly all of his films (heist films, blaxploitation films, revenge films, kung-fu films,, grindhouse, war films, westerns, etc.). On it's own, I'm not sure how "Doomsday" would be received by audiences unfamiliar with 80s post apocalyptic films, but for audience members with an affection for these film, which Marshall certainly has, this film does offer enough treats to be worth watching, even if the overall experience seems disappointing. Overall, if watching "1990: The Bronx Warriors" or "Cherry 2000" is your idea of a good time, you should definitely check this film out.

Two tribes

Doomsday is a ridiculously trashy post punk action picture set in a futuristic Britain.

A deadly virus has caused chaos in Scotland. The government has erected a 12 foot steel wall along the border to separate it from the rest of the country.

Now, 20 years later the virus is broken out in London and the government needs to find a cure. They know that there are survivors up in Scotland and send a unit to find someone with immunity.

Major Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra) is leading the troops, she is feisty and brave. She needs to be as Scotland is a post apocalyptic nightmare and she thinks the government who have sent her have an agenda.

It is clear that writer/director Neil Marshall wears his film and musical influences on a sleeve here. There is a soundtrack harking back to the 198os. There are nods to films such as Mad Max, 28 Days Later, Escape from New York.

I just think it was all a bit banal and bad. The gratuitous violence against women is off putting though.

Escape from New York meets Mad Max this movie is a peace a sh**t overrated garbage stinker


Doomsday (2008) f**** sucks this movies is a peace sh**t post-apocalyptic garbage stinker! This is one of the worst lowest retarded violent offensive movies I have ever seen in my inter life! I can't even describe how boring violent this movie is. This movie kills animals, kills kids I hate this movie! Neil Marshall wrote and directed this peace sh**t movie who borrows story's and steals scenes from all those movies I am just counting (Escape from New York, Mad Max, Cyborg, 28 Days Later, Army of Darkness, Lord of the Rings and Resident Evil) mixed and it makes in too poorly paced boring stinker violent movie! The main hero is Rhona Mitra and she is a self centered selfish asshole! She didn't want to free that girl she only cared was her mission! A bad movie, way too violent and way to offensive for my taste and in my opinion Neil Marshall failed to make a good entertaining movie!

Their is nothing likable in this movie at all. Virus and Soldiers are killing kids how offensive is that? Neil Marshal put a cannibals in this movie in which a man eater burns a human being men alive and then they eat his flash off his skin that was so disgusting. I hated Rhona Mittra she tried to be the next Kate Beckinsale from Underworld and the next Milla Jovovich from Resident Evil. This movie has the worst anti heroine. Neil Marshall put a live rabbit and it was blown to pieces with a machine gun for nothing. This movie has nudity f*** this!

I don't understand the love and the praise this underrated movie gets and I never will! This STINKER movie is way overrated Neil Marshall made Dog Soldiers one of my all time favorite werewolf movies and that movie get's the hate for it. Dog Soldiers is way better movie then this. I will rather watch Dog Soldiers then this peace a s**** movie! The Descent is way better movie then Doomsday I watch it last night and I have enjoy that movie better then this. Doomsday suck a dick!

It is not a good movie it stole so much elements from other movies that is not just worth of watch! This movie can not be original! Why is Dog Soldiers and The Descent original and this isn't?!

This movie fails to be also a good sci-fi film it has action? A terrible poorly paced action Rhona Mittra is so terrible at her fighting skills that I was laughing my ass off. Omg this movie has Malcolm McDowell in it from Rob Zombie's Halloween remakes and he is the dark knight in this movie are you kidding me? The acting is wooden from everyone, everyone in this movie is a brainless moron!

Point me one actor that is good in this movie? Lee-Anne Liebenberg died in a few scenes and she failed miserable to be the second villain. Craig Conway imitates The Humungus (Kjell Nilsson) from Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. You know these British directors does not know how to make a good post-apocalyptic action movie! I don't like Neil Marshall's movie Doomsday that's my opinion I have seen this movie two times in the row and the second time around I couldn't finish because it has so bad clich├ęs in this movie. I dislike Rhona Mittra a lot she is the worst actress ever!

Movies I will rather watch then this crap: Escape from New York, Mad Max 2 The Road Warrior, Mad Max, Mad Max: Fury Road, Cyborg, 28 Days Later, Army of Darkness, Lord of the Rings, Resident Evil, Underworld, Underworld: Evolution, Underworld Awakening and Underworld: Blood Wars MILES way better movies then this overrated trash! I am avoiding all Rhona Mittra's movies she is in it including Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, so terrible horrible sh*** actress she is and she can not act!

Score F 1/10 failed miserable avoid like a plague unless you like brainless violent offensive copycat action movies! This movie is a retarded stupid overrated peace a s**t movie!!!
