If you enjoyed 28 Days Later, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome and
Gladiator, this might be the film for you. Writer and Director Neil
Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) an obvious student of genre
movies, has managed to smoothly craft together a cinematic
Frankenstein's monster of sci-fi action clichés. Gratuitous blood
geysers? Check. Insane, post-apocalyptic punks? Check. Buff, beautiful,
uber-bad-ass heroine that can kill without a moment's hesitation but
still possesses superior morals to those that command her? Check.
Ego-maniacal bad guy played by Malcolm McDowell? Check. Ticking clock
to doomsday? Check.
Marshall has skillfully engineered what is truly an homage to the genre
movie and an action buffet for moviegoers with appropriate kitsch and
over-the-topness without lowering himself to the realm of spoof.
If you're looking for high cinema don't look here, but if you're
looking for excitement, humor and an overall really good time, Doomsday
will certainly fit the bill.
