View All Critic Reviews Apr 12, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would even though the old virus story has been done before, It's basically 28 Days Later and Mad Max mixed, It had a chance to be different to the rest of its type but chose to go with action and gore, A few silly scenes ruined it but the action was ok, Predictable at times and not greatly acted but it's pretty fun in places, Could of been worse, Could of been better.

Jamie C Super Reviewer. May 03, A deadly virus appeared in Scotland killing millions. UK government had no choice but to completely isolate Scotland by destroying all access points and leaving the inhabitants to die.

A little Scottish girl was rescued before the final quarantine, 27 years later, she became a top soldier.

The deadly virus appeared in UK once again, it is up to a team of experts to go inside Scotland to find a cure, or die trying.

Possibly one of the weakest Marshall films. Some parts worked well, some parts didn't. I enjoyed the fights and costumes but to see Scottish people regress to Feudal society was a bit silly.

I like how realistic in terms of the setting of the film it was but it failed to present a well sounded narrative. Sylvester K Super Reviewer.

Dec 25, Because it's been crafted with so much energy, style and good heartedness. The problem overall is that it lacks a cohesive narrative to support the eye popping beauty of it's surface visuals.

The less exhilarating flaw however is how terribly ordinary it is. And how unremarkable it is in comparison to the numerous futuristic thrillers that it decides to borrow from.

Rhona Mitra didn't help at all because her performance is simply an utterly charmless and less thrilling impression of Kate Beckinsale in Underworld.

I know that it isn't a great start to the review, but the film offers plenty of reasons why it should be recommended.

While incredibly stupid and wildly derivative, it is a real heart-racer of a film. Neil "Dog Soldier" Marshall's tremendously fast paced direction is an impressive and quite welcome change to his usual restrained but nevertheless amazing directorial talent.

His previous films "Dog Soldiers" and "The Descent" were claustrophobic works of art. This is a rip roaring and hilarious action horror that delivers the thrills but falls at the expense of a likable heroine and developed character arcs.

Marshall's previous films boasted all of the above, and their absence dissapointed me. I have always kept high expectations for him because he is one of the best directors of our time.

Although Doomsday is certainly not a classic, it is also never dull. It has all of the breathtaking, explosive qualities that Hollywood films should have.

That is a good thing, but it also means that the things good about it are generic. The heartbreaking downside for me was the disappearance of the flawlessness of his earlier films.

As they say, you can't have too much of a good thing. I think Doomsday is a fun, messy, flawed, dark and gritty film. It has variable qualities and ideas that fit and others that don't.

But it passes in terms of living up to the strength of it's convictions. It's well designed, underated, action packed and purely badass. Directors C Super Reviewer.

Nov 06, When survives of an apocalyptic virus are discovered in Glasgow after Scotland had been quarantined, a special ops team is sent in to recover the cure.

The dark, gritty visual style really works for the film and enhances the high-adrenaline action.

The story is rather bizarre and isn't particularly well told, but it has some fascinating ideas and concepts. However, at its core Doomsday is a guilty pleasure film that delivers exciting and gratuitous action that's a lot of fun to watch.

Marshall also cited Metalstorm , [13] Zulu , [14] and works of director Terry Gilliam like The Fisher King as influences in producing Doomsday.

He reflected, "I do think it's going to divide audiences I just want them to be thrilled and enthralled. I want them to be overwhelmed by the imagery they've seen.

And go back and see it again. Rogue Pictures signed Marshall to direct Doomsday in October , [17] and in November , actress Rhona Mitra was signed to star in Doomsday as the leader of the elite team.

Marshall described the broader experience: "There's fifty or more speaking parts; I'm dealing with thousands of extras, logistical action sequences, explosions, car chases — the works.

Production began in February in South Africa, [18] where the majority of filming took place. Marshall said of South Africa's appeal, "The landscape, the rock formations, I thought it was about as close to Scotland as you're likely to get, outside of Ireland or Wales.

A massive car chase scene was filmed for Doomsday , described by Marshall to be one part Mad Max , one part Bullitt , and one part "something else entirely different".

Paul Hyett, the prosthetic make-up designer who worked on The Descent , contributed to the production, researching diseases including sexually transmitted diseases to design the make-up for victims of the Reaper virus.

The visual effects for Doomsday stemmed from the s stunt-based films, involving approximately visual effects shots. While filmmakers did not seek innovative visual effects, they worked with budget restrictions by creating set extensions.

With most shots taking place in daylight, the extensions involved matte paint and 2D and 3D solutions. The visual effects crew visited Scotland to take reference photos so scenes that were filmed in Cape Town, South Africa could instead have Scottish backgrounds.

Several challenges for the visual effects crew included the illustration of cow overpopulation in line with a decimated human population and the convincing creation of the rebuilt Hadrian Wall in different lights and from different distances.

The most challenging visual effects shot in Doomsday was the close-up in which a main character is burned alive.

The shot required multiple enhancements and implementations of burning wardrobe, burning pigskin, and smoke and fire elements to look authentic.

Neil Marshall's car chase sequence also involved the use of visual effects. A scene in which the Bentley crashes through a bus was intended to implement pyrotechnics, but fire marshals in the South African nature reserve, the filming location for the scene, forbade their use due to dry conditions.

A miniature mock-up was created and visual effects were applied so the filming of the mock-up would overlay the filming of the actual scene without pyrotechnics.

Other visual effects that were created were the Thames flood plain and a remote Scottish castle. A popular effect with the visual effects crew was the "rabbit explosion" scene, depicting a rabbit being shot by guns on automatic sensors.

The crew sought to expand the singular shot, but Neil Marshall sought to focus on one shot to emphasise its comic nature and avoid drawing unnecessary sympathy from audiences.

Marshall originally intended to include s synth music in his film, but he found it difficult to combine the music with the intense action.

Instead, composer Tyler Bates composed a score using heavy orchestra music. Marshall also hoped to include the song "Into the Light" by the Banshees, but it was left out due to the producer disliking it and the cost being too high to licence it.

For its theatrical run, the film was originally intended to be distributed by Focus Features under Rogue Pictures , but the company transferred Doomsday among other films to Universal Pictures for larger-scale distribution and marketing beginning in Rotten Tomatoes on UK's general consensus [31].

Doomsday was not screened for critics in advance of its commercial opening in cinemas. The website's consensus reads, " Doomsday is a pale imitation of previous futuristic thrillers, minus the cohesive narrative and charismatic leads.

Alison Rowat of The Herald perceived Doomsday as "decidedly everyday" for a thriller, with Marshall's script having too many unanswered questions and characters not fully developed despite a decent cast.

Rowat said, "In his previous films, Marshall made something out of nothing. Here he does the opposite". The critic acknowledged the attempted homages and the B-movie approach but thought that "there has to be something more".

Alonso Duralde of MSNBC described Doomsday : "It's ridiculous, derivative, confusingly edited and laden with gore, but it's the kind of over-the-top grindhouse epic that wears down your defenses and eventually makes you just go with it.

Reviewer James Berardinelli found the production of Doomsday to be a mess, complaining, "The action sequences might be more tense if they weren't obfuscated by rapid-fire editing, and the backstory is muddled and not all that interesting.

He added, "There's no question that Doomsday does what it does with vigor, high technical prowess and just enough humor to avoid turning ridiculous.

Hartlaub said of the effect, "Hire a couple of great stuntmen and a halfway sober cinematographer, and you didn't even need a screenwriter. Seitz described his discontent over the lack of innovation in the director's attempted homages of older films: " Doomsday is frenetic, loud, wildly imprecise and so derivative that it doesn't so much seem to reference its antecedents as try on their famous images like a child playing dress-up.

Scotland's tourism agency VisitScotland welcomed Doomsday , hoping that the film would attract tourism by marketing Scotland to the rest of the world.

A spokesperson from Scottish Screen anticipated, "It's likely to also attract a big audience who will see the extent to which Scotland can provide a flexible and diverse backdrop to all genres of film.

In contrast, several parties have expressed concern that Doomsday presents negativity in England's latent view of Scotland based on their history.

Angus MacNeil , member of the Scottish National Party , said of the film's impact: "The complimentary part is that people are thinking about Scotland as we are moving more and more towards independence.

But the film depicts a country that is still the plaything of London. It is decisions made in London that has led to it becoming a quarantine zone.

Director Neil Marshall applied for membership with the organisation to add "fresh blood", but Doomsday was not mentioned during jury deliberations.

According to a spokesperson from the organisation, the film was not formally submitted for consideration, and no one directly invited the filmmakers to discuss a possible entry.

Several of BAFTA Scotland's jury members believed that the criteria and procedures for a Scottish film were unclear and could have been more formalised.

Doomsday was used as inspiration in building a haunted house for Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando. IGN called the commentary "a pretty straight-up behind-the-scenes take on the movie and a bit over-congratulatory".

It found the "most fascinating" featurette to be about visual effects, while deeming the other featurettes skippable. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Directors C Super Reviewer. Nov 06, During the duel, Sinclair subdues and kills Telamon while the rest of the group escapes, retrieving their equipment and rescuing Sinclair.

Sinclair, Norton, Stirling and Cally escape to a fallout shelter entrance on horseback. They locate an underground facility in the forest and find an intact Bentley Continental GT , which they fuel up.

Kane's medieval knights arrive and kill Norton. Sinclair and the others drive the Bentley back to the quarantine wall.

On the way, they are intercepted by Sol's gang, which seeks to avenge Viper once and for all. After a high-speed chase, Sol and many of his men are killed and Sinclair's group escape.

Using a phone retrieved from the fallout shelter, Sinclair calls Canaris, who later arrives in a government gunship.

Canaris then tricks Sinclair into trading Cally - after he suggests that her blood can be used to create a vaccine to treat the virus - revealing his scheme to let the Reaper Virus spread all over the UK, as both a form of population control, and for shady profit.

Cally and Stirling board the gunship with Canaris while Sinclair returns to her old house in search of her mother, followed by Nelson, who flew into the quarantine zone to speak with his superior officer.

While Sinclair confirms that her mother has perished due to the virus, she is able to retrieve a picture of her. The recording is later broadcast to the rest of the country, much to Canaris' dismay, as it spells doom to his career.

The marauders stand in shock for a moment before bursting into cheering, accepting Sinclair as their new leader.

MyAnna Buring portrayed Kane's daughter Cally. Director Neil Marshall lived near the ruins of Hadrian's Wall , a Roman fortification built to defend England against Scotland's tribes.

The director fantasised about what conditions would cause the Wall to be rebuilt and imagined a lethal virus would work.

Marshall had also visualised a mixture of medieval and futuristic elements: "I had this vision of these futuristic soldiers with high-tech weaponry and body armour and helmets—clearly from the future—facing a medieval knight on horseback.

Additionally, Scotland is the home to multiple castles, which fit Marshall's medieval aspect. The lethal virus in Doomsday differs from contemporary films like 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later by being an authentic plague that actually devastates the population, instead of infecting people so they become aggressive cannibals or zombies.

Marshall intended the virus as the backdrop to the story, having survivors scavenge for themselves and set up a primitive society. The director drew from tribal history around the world to design the society.

Though the survivors are depicted as brutal, Marshall sought to have "shades of gray" by characterising some people in England as selfishly manipulative.

The director intended Doomsday as a tribute to post-apocalyptic films from the s and s, explaining, "Right from the start, I wanted my film to be an homage to these sorts of movies, and deliberately so.

I wanted to make a movie for a new generation of audience that hadn't seen those movies in the cinema—hadn't seen them at all maybe—and to give them the same thrill that I got from watching them.

But kind of contemporise it, pump up the action and the blood and guts. Marshall also cited Metalstorm , [13] Zulu , [14] and works of director Terry Gilliam like The Fisher King as influences in producing Doomsday.

He reflected, "I do think it's going to divide audiences I just want them to be thrilled and enthralled. I want them to be overwhelmed by the imagery they've seen.

Hartlaub said of the effect, "Hire a couple of great stuntmen and a halfway sober cinematographer, and you didn't even need a screenwriter. The possibility of the disease spreading to the rest of the world appears to have been effectively stopped in it's tracks.

Fast forward 30 years and the virus has reappeared, this time in London. Satellite monitoring has picked up images of apparent survivors in the hot zone, which leads the government to suspect the potential for a cure.

Desperate to put an end to the reborn plague, the Brits send a team of soldiers into the walled off country in the hopes that they can find the cure that may not even exist.

The third feature film from British filmmaker Neil Marshall. I thought this was a fun time at the movies, but don't expect anything new here.

There are homages all over this thing, and I would like to think that I caught most of them. Hell, even Nightmare City seemingly gets a nod with the look and behavior of the infected.

Watch the scene where one of the infected axes his way into Hatcher's compound and see if Lenzi's trash classic doesn't come to mind.

Marshall knew what he wanted to do with this film, and he does just that. Rhona Mitra plays the team leader of the squad sent into the hot zone.

She's a gorgeous woman with a killer accent, but she also comes through as a believable action star. I've long been a fan of her's, so it's nice seeing her get a role like this.

Craig Conway is warped as the over-the-top Sol, but he lacks menace. He did get me to hate him, but that had more to do with the fact that I found him annoying.

The considerable talents of Malcolm McDowell, Bob Hoskins and Alexander Siddig provide solid support despite what little they have to work with.

My biggest gripe with the film is the wall to wall use of music. It seems like there's never a scene that doesn't have some form of music blaring, and that becomes tiresome.

A little more subtlety in that area would have been most appreciated. Also, some of the scene transitions feel awkward, and the film itself feels quite rushed.

We don't get much down time or quiet moments, it's all very busy. Still, I must admit that it's decent fun. You bet. That aside, if you have a certain affinity for this brand of entertainment, you should eat it up.

And for the record, I'll take this one over The Descent any day.
