Ex-con Jensen Ames is forced by the warden of a notorious prison to compete in our post-industrial world's most popular sport: a car race in which inmates must brutalize and kill one another on the road to victory.
Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, a cop is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others' surrogates.
When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
In a future mind-controlling game, death row convicts are forced to battle in a 'doom'-type environment. Convict Kable, controlled by Simon, a skilled teenage gamer, must survive 30 sessions in order to be set free. Or won't he?

A lethal virus spreads throughout the British isles,infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands. To contain the threat, acting authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The quarantine is successful. Three decades later, the Reaper virus violently resurfaces in a major city. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair, is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare. Written by
The assault weapons used by the DDS troopers are (modified) Vektor CR-21 bullpup assault rifles, a product of South Africa, the major filming location of the movie. See more »
If food is so rare that survivors are eating human flesh, why did the infiltration team encounter cows wandering on the road? Much of Scotland is very rural highlands that would be difficult terrain for anyone on foot. During the initial breakdown in order, it is highly unlikely that the survivors would scour the whole of the country for every last single cow before resorting to cannibalism. Only a few cows would need to survive to account for the herd that is then encountered, 30 years later and numerous (cow) generations later. (However, it *is* somewhat unlikely that none of the characters felt the existence of a large herd of apparently healthy cows to be worth commenting on.) See more »
Like so many epidemics before, the loss of so many lives began with a single microscopic organism. It's human nature to seek even the smallest comfort in reason, or logic for events as catastrophic as these. But a virus doesn't choose a time or place. It doesn't hate or even care. It just happens.

OK, I'm not claiming its good but it is serious fun. It is basically a mix of the Mad Max films in Scotland but also throw in some scenes from 28 Days Later, Resident Evil, LOTR and Braveheart.
If you can imagine that then you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect - no, I didn't think you could.
It does just massively rip off all the above but as I said, I'm not claiming its good, just a lot of fun.
Added bonus is the great music choices which just add to the fun - "Good Tning" by FYC when the main lunatic introduces himself to the crowd and "Two Tribes" by Frankie Goes To Hollywood for the big car chase.
Not gonna win an Oscar but a hell of a ride.
