  • There are plenty of surprises in this film and to think most people didn't get to experience this on the big screen
  • Some of these images sort of remind me of other apocalyptic movies, but in ways I think Doomsday does a much better job, considering the budget was much smaller

      This is one of those movies that you skipped when it was released in theaters. Doomsday might have come out at the wrong time or the trailers didn’t look very appetizing. With the movie being released on video, should you take a look at this film or should you continue ignoring it?

      The year is 2037 and the United Kingdom is infested with the Reaper virus, a virus that renders the way they are. After some time the government discovers what is going on and Prime Minister Hatcher (Alexander Siddig) enlists the services of Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra), and a small team or military and medical specialists to head into Glasgow. This wasteland is considered to be the area of the


      Reaper virus. Once the team is there they must find Dr. Kane (Malcolm McDowell) and return within 48 hours in order for London to have its cure.

      This might sound like an easy task, but once the team is in Glasgow the real magic begins. All of the death sequences in this movie are extreme and the unrated edition adds in some more footage for blood fanatics to cheer. There are body parts in places, people getting buried and even some cannibalism. All of this is going on when the team is looking for the cure. How many people really thought all of this would happen in Doomsday?

      Doomsday is a real twisted movie. There are plenty of surprises in this

      film and to think most people didn’t get to experience this on the big screen. All of the images in this movie are graphic, everything you see in here seems like it could happen and it’s freighting. Some of these images sort of remind me of other apocalyptic movies, but in ways I think Doomsday does a much better job, considering the budget was much smaller.

      The movies plot in general is comparable to other major motion pictures. I think what killed Doomsday in theaters were the images of all the freaks. Yes this movie has a bunch of weird looking people that sometimes ruin the entire picture. This movie is trying to go with a serious approach but it is ...

      hard to treat the movie like that when you have somebody with more holes than swiss cheese. Just make sure you stick with this movie and don’t be turned off by all of the freaks.

      All of the bonus features on this DVD are worth while for a random purchase (the movie alone is I feel). The commentary track with the director Neil Marshall and a few cast members is fantastic. Most of the time, you will hear the cast gasping in disbelief, with all the images of violence. Nobody working on this movie can believer what they made and it’s funny to hear that.

      The remaining features are Anatomy of Catastrophe: Civilization on the Brink, which is a behind the

      scenes look on the post apocalyptic world. This behind the scenes look is a nice tidbit on how things were created with such a little budget. To finish things up there are some behind the scenes look on the visual effects and the weapons of Doomsday, something fans of the movie should enjoy.

      Doomsday is one of those movies that should not be missed. I passed on this movie when it came out in theaters because it looked completely stupid. When I finally got to see this film I was wishing I took the time to see it in theaters. Out of all the post apocalyptic movies that have come out I would have to say that Doomsday would be in the top three.
