My Thoughts

When considered as a followup to Marshall's excellent Descent, Doomsday can be a bit disappointing. But if you let it stand on its own, don't take it too seriously, and are a fan of '80s era post-apocalyptica, then you're going to love this movie, as I do.

Doomsday pays homage to the 1980s post-apocalypse genre in general, as well as Mad Max, The Road Warrior, 28 Days/Weeks Later and more.

If its guilty of anything, it's of trying to fit too much into one movie.

Still, it's an enjoyable movie to watch. Rhona Mitra looks ravishing here, despite the creepy camera eye, and nice little turns by Bob Hoskins and Malcolm McDowell are featured as well. Dog Soldiers fav Sean Pertwee also makes an appearance.
