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."
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
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.
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
