there is like 4 films in this movie. starts off serious then goes on to a comic ridiculous scene of a bunch of savage punks singing and eating people then goes to a cheese medieval time then an action cheesy american resident evil part. so many ideas put straight into the film with out backing them up with a proper story line and emotional connections between characters no reasons for the ideas

This is one of the worst movies ever next to Howard the Duck. Some movies are so bad they're funny, this one is so bad it pi$$es you off. Nothing makes any sense in this movie. This movie is a cheap spin on movies like Mad Max, Escape from NY, 28 Days, and Cyborg with Jean Claud. If you just want to see an angry movie with no likeable characters, especially the protagonist who is just an

this movie was a complete waste of time and money. at first it seems kind of like an extremely violent version of mad max, with almost a Tarantino vibe, but dont be fooled, the plot never really gets off the ground, and the acting is weak. im normally a fan of violent gory movies, but doomsday pushes it to the point of nausea. be ready for some graphic cannibalism. i think this movie had real

The Onion A.V. Club
Marshall's fixation on John Carpenter and early James Cameron is all too apparent, but his own distinctive cinematic style isn't, making Doomsday a likeably rambling but generic shoot-'em-up. Full Review

One caveat: The film has more blood-splatter than a dozen zombie movies. If you can handle that, Doomsday's drunken mash-up of futuristic and feudal is surprisingly satisfying. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Variety
Neil Marshall's flair for visceral action more than compensates for his script's lack of conceptual novelty in Doomsday. Principally South Africa-shot tale of a post-apocalyptic Great Britain cobbles together large chunks of "Escape From New York," "The Road Warrior," "28 Days Later" and "Resident Evil," but those with a taste for revved-up, splattery fantasy thrills won't be complaining.

Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
Mitra, clad in the requisite tight, sexy outfits, conveys a suitable toughness but little in the way of personality, while such distinguished British actors as Bob Hoskins and Adrian Lester dutifully show up to collect their paychecks. Full Review
Gregory Kirschling
Entertainment Weekly
Marshall cribs whole sections from other movies (Aliens and The Road Warrior, most blatantly) so baldly that you have to wonder how he'd like it if someone ripped off "The Descent" this egregiously. Full Review
