Default 'Doomsday' - High-Def Digest Review

*Editor's Note* I will be using a vacation day tomorrow, July 25th, and won't be anywhere near a computer, but I want to make sure everyone is able to discuss Kenneth's review of 'Doomsday' when it gets posted in the morning. I'm putting the finishing touches on the review now. Hope you enjoy.

Look for the full review here:

I got this the other day and I thought the PQ and AQ was very good. The movie is very entertaining. Not a great movie at all but entertaining. It is like 28 days later meets mad max. Lot bloodier than I expected too

I have a feeling I'll be blind buying this one...I'm a HUGE sucker for post-apocalyptic frag fests, even if they are horrible.

With that PQ rating this should be a best seller among many people here, no matter how terrible the actual film is.

I agree with this review 100%. The setup had such promise, but the payoff was cliche and, as much as I think Rhona Mitra is hot, I don't think she can carry the lead role -- at least not with material like this.

The movie failed on so many levels. Was it trying to be serious? Camp?

Spoiler
I just shook my head in disbelief when the music video and stripper dance sequence broke out.


I'm not a "you have to be serious 100% of the time" kind of guy, but this film's tone was all over the place.

Finally, I have to ask this: why is it that in a post-apocalyptic world does the lead bad guy and his followers insist on growing, coloring, and displaying mohawks? Do they have the time and resources necessary to fashion such elaborate hairstyles when a virus is killing the rest of mankind? If I was trying to survive and I needed to break into an abandoned drug store, you can be damn sure I wouldn't head straight for the hair care isle. But, I digress...

Stick to Marshall's other movies mentioned in the review.
