Product Description

From the director of The Descent comes an action-packed thrill-ride through the beating heart of hell! To save humanity from an epidemic, an elite fighting unit must battle to find a cure in a post-apocalyptic zone controlled by a society of murderous renegades. Loaded with ferocious fights and high-octane chases, Doomsday grabs you right from the start, and doesn't let go till its explosive end!

Amazon.com

Loud, violent, and proudly derivative, the post-apocalyptic action-thriller Doomsday is the latest from UK cult director Neil Marshall, who impressed horror fans with his previous efforts, Dog Soldiers and The Descent. Both pictures established Marshall as a director with a knack for reinventing well-worn genre pictures, but here, he seems more interested in stitching together favorite scenes and elements from established horror and science-fiction films. Escape from New York is the main source for Doomsday, though there are plenty of nods to The Road Warrior and its multitude of Italian-made carbon copies, as well as the zombie/plague subgenre; the lovely but impassive Rhona Mitra is the Snake Plissken-esque loner sent by police (represented by Bob Hoskins) to infiltrate Scotland, which has descended into anarchy following a viral outbreak. The disease has surfaced in London (now a walled city), and Mitra is dispatched to find a scientist who may possess a cure. Marshall's vision of Scotland in ruins brings together the punk/modern primitive costume design of George Miller's Mad Max trilogy with some eclectic homegrown elements (knights on horseback defending a gang leader's castle), and while these touches are novel, the picture as a whole should ring overly familiar to any viewer who's spent time in the exploitation trenches during the past 25 years. Younger and less discerning audience members will undoubtedly enjoy the plentiful violence and gore, as well as the unbridled performances of the supporting cast, especially stuntwoman/actress Lee-Ann Liebenberg as the heavily tattooed Viper. --Paul Gaita

    You've seen all the pieces before. The country has fallen into lawlessness, where warlords with bad haircuts rule their fiefdoms (as in Mad Max, to name just one of many). There are the government officials trying desperately to save his bu... I mean, career (My Fellow Americans). There's the insanely contagious and deadly virus (28 Days Later). And there's the way-cool babe with a gun and an attitude (Resident Evil) leading her small but brave band through it all. Oh, and a little comedic banter (any Bond film), but not enough to change the tone of the film. If you want novelty, or even plausibility, you probably ended up in the wrong theater by mistake.

    So just take it for what it is: commodity entertainment, a bit bloodier than some but not off the charts, and where people keep their clothes on. Some days, I just want an adventure flick with nothing much to think about, except maybe how good Maj. Sinclair looks in that tight outfit. If that's what you're after, then "mission accomplished."

    What a gloriously stupidly great film. Yes it stitches up bits from Escape From New York, The Mad Max trilogy, a number of Zombie flicks and throws in a bit of medieval nonsense, but it's entertaining, silly, bloody, ridiculous FUN. It's one of those movies that if you `'get it'' and are willing to forgive it a multitude of sins, not least some woeful acting from Bob Hoskins and Darren Morfitt you'll have a whole lot of old fashioned exploitation fun.

    I mean in what other movie do you have a gleaming black Bently Coupe being chased by a rag tag band of evil punks in the cars from The Road Warrior all set to Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Two Tribes. Great.

    Americans have not taken to Doomsday for some reason, maybe the audiences where expecting something serious and in the vein of Marshall's last film, The Descent, but Europeans who appreciate that Neil Marshall's tongue is firmly planted in his cheek are lapping it up. Enjoy

    Ugh, the shame of potential pissed down the drain. I believe that Doomsday could have been a decent, to pretty good, post-apocalyptic action/suspense film had every good thing about not been done before. In fact, I'd even say I enjoyed it, but there's a difference between paying homage to previous works (e.g. Road Warrior and Mad Max, the Alien and Resident Evil series, 28 Days Later, and most of all, the Carpenter classic, Escape from New York), and copying because you lack the creativity to do something new. Sad to say Neil Marshall's Doomsday is the latter. The rookie director's third film is pretty much like all of his others, and depending on what side of the aisle you sit on, that could either be a good thing, or a bad thing. I happen to fall on the side of the naysayers.

    I'm not a fan of his work, but I can tolerate it. I like movies with dark settings, tons of gratuitous gore (which is plentiful in the Unrated cut), and strong female leads. Not to mention, I didn't list a single film in the previous paragraph that I didn't enjoy, so this movie was right up my alley. The performances are dare I say, pretty good. Rhona Mitra is always fairly deadpan, but she's okay. The best work came from the supporting actors who survived the longest (without spoiling anything). Malcolm McDowell wasn't a standout, but he was a nice sight in a film where there are only a couple of recognizable B-level actors.I just wish it had not been so laden with genre cliches that it never had a chance to be its own movie. Even with all that being said, I'll revisit Doomsday in the future because it was a hell of a fun time. It didn't fail to accomplish its primary goal: entertain. I say rent it.

    Absolutely love this movie and was so excited to buy it! It was being played fairly regularly on TV where I live and whenever I could catch it I would. Knowing that the TV always cuts down for time, I really wanted to see the uncut version.

    I am a huge fan of this director. Dog Soldiers was a mind-blowingly awesome movie and you actually get to see a couple of the actors from that in this (Spoon!!! <3). The Descent I was obsessed with since the first moment I saw it in Theaters (the version without the wakeup) and immediately bought it when it came out on DVD. Neil Marshall has done it again with this movie. It doesn't have a supernatural flair like Dog Soldiers or a horror monster horde like the Descent, but it still stands on it's own and I believe is on the same level as it's predecessors.

    To avoid spoilers I can't really go into much depth about the content itself. The main character is a female protagonist (whom I have a total fangirl crush on) played by Rhona Mitra and the movie touches on her history a bit, which helps the atmosphere of the movie. It's a wonderful mix of modern with medieval and apocalyptic with explosions and car chases. Malcom MacDowell, of course, plays his role excellently. All of the actors did wonderful and even the characters you hate you love to hate.

    Really can't say much more about it. The DVD I purchased was brand new, in good condition and not a scratch on the disc. A solid purchase. I shall enjoy wearing this out like I have my Dog Soldiers and The Descent DVDs.

    So I definitely suggest purchasing and if you don't like it, you're only out 10 bucks.

    Dat Sinclair, tho... <3
