Remember when we had no choice but to watch beefed-up, brainless brutes try to save the day in any ultra-violent, post-apocalyptic action thriller? Thank goodness those times have changed, and we can shout the mantra that hotness prevails even as the source of all that hotness goes about kicking the posterior of any man who dares get in her way. I don't know if Rhona Mitra could take out the likes of Milla Jovovich - but I do know that is one catfight I would pay lots of money to see. One thing I do know, however, is that Doomsday is all about Rhona Mitra. Without her, this movie crashes and burns. As others have pointed out, Doomsday is (to put it nicely) highly derivative of several earlier films; the weird thing is that most of those derivative scenes and situations are pretty stupid and over-the-top. Even the great Michael McDowell isn't in the film long enough to make his character's recidivistic little fiefdom believable, but it's the whole Mad Max society that really weighs heavily on this film's overall success (or lack thereof).

One song you won't hear on this film's hard-edged soundtrack is Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper. Everybody fears the Reaper virus, as it has engulfed all of Scotland in a matter of days. Despite serious international ramifications, the British government makes the seemingly sane choice of placing the whole of Scotland in quarantine. I'm not sure how they went about building an elaborate wall all the way across the border of England and Scotland almost overnight, but build it they did, essentially sentencing every inhabitant of Scotland to a horrible death.

3.0 out of 5 stars 28 Weeks meets Mad Max Oct. 15 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Doomsday(released Mar/08)has a stellar cast of actors in Bob Hoskins as Bill Nelson,an official,Malcolm McDowell as Dr. Marcus Kane,Alexander Siddig as Prime Minister John Hatcher(formerly Siddig El Fadil from DS9),David O'Hara as Michael Canaris,a senior official,Craig Conway as Sol,Rhona Mitra as Major Eden Sinclair and others.The cast is solid but the plot here meanders more than one would like and is yet ANOTHER version of a post apocalyptic world gone bad,due to an unleashed virus.If I had a nickel for every post apocalyptic/virus/zombie film that has been produced within the last decade,I would be a millionaire.Some do it better than others and put their unique stamp/slant on it,but,unfortunately,not this one.
The plot involves that virus I mentioned doing its thing in Great Britain.The government builds a wall about 3/4 the way up the island,isolating much of northern England and all of Scotland.It is a no fly zone and no one can get in or out.Some satellites have been keeping an eye on things in the zone and it seems there are survivors walking the streets in Glasgow.Top that with a viral outbreak in London,and the government dispatches a team to go to Glasgow to locate a Dr.Kane who may be able to provide them with an antidote.
The team,led by Major Sinclair,heads into the wastelands and finally into Glasgow proper.They are searching a hospital,the doctors last known location,when they are jumped.Alot of the team are killed,while Sinclair and others are captured by leader Sol,who commands the cities occupants.While Sol puts on a "show" for the populace,in which one of Sinclair's team is roasted alive and eaten(!),Sinclair,along with the daughter of Dr.Kane,is rescued and they barely escape Glasgow aboard a train.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doomsday March 8 2009
Format:DVD
Although this movie borrows from a number of other science fiction movies the story is different enough to keep it interesting. I hope to see a sequel with a return of the lead characters.
