Doomsday Film Contribute to This Page VideoDOOMSDAY (2008) Explored Sad to say Neil Marshall's Doomsday is the latter. The rookie director's third film is pretty much like all of his others, and depending on what side of the aisle you sit on, that could either be a good thing, or a bad thing. I happen to fall on the side of the naysayers. I'm not a fan of his work, but I can tolerate it. Road Warrior meets Escape From New York in the apocalyptic action film Doomsday. When survives of an apocalyptic virus are discovered in Glasgow after Scotland had been quarantined, a special ops. Doomsday is a strange film, which wears the reasons for its relative failure all over its running time. It is uneven, illogical and rather silly, with Marshall's gamble just not paying off sufficiently. Back in , the uncontrollable and utterly devastating Reaper Virus smites Scotland, claiming thousands of innocent lives. Almost three decades later, in and with the land still being in quarantine--the lethal virus manages somehow to re-emerge, and as a result, the Prime Minister summons a hand-picked team of disposable heroes led by Major Eden Sinclair to retrieve possible survivors. Doomsday Drama | TV Movie As a preventive measure, the U.S. government assembled a think tank of the most brilliant, out-of-the-box thinkers from various disciplines tasked with dreaming up man-made disaster scenarios and their possible solutions. Deine Bewertung. Johannes Haller Trennung Schauwerte! Sam McCurdy Ossie McLean Jay Maidment Mannie Ferreira Alan Maxwell. Doomsday is more self-indulgent than the director's previous film, The Descent, but I like the approach he takes in Doomsday, and the ending is great -- it sets up a sequel that has not and may never arrive. 1/5/ · You can click on the doomsday movie titles to get more information about the films.

Don't forget, not all end of the world Doomsday movies are sad and action-packed. Some are sentimental and emotional roller coasters, such as Seeking a Friend for the End of the World , starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley.
A scene in which the Bentley crashes through a bus was intended to implement pyrotechnics, but fire marshals in the South African nature reserve, the filming location for the scene, forbade their use due to dry conditions.
A miniature mock-up was created and visual effects were applied so the filming of the mock-up would overlay the filming of the actual scene without pyrotechnics.
Other visual effects that were created were the Thames flood plain and a remote Scottish castle. A popular effect with the visual effects crew was the "rabbit explosion" scene, depicting a rabbit being shot by guns on automatic sensors.
The crew sought to expand the singular shot, but Neil Marshall sought to focus on one shot to emphasise its comic nature and avoid drawing unnecessary sympathy from audiences.
Marshall originally intended to include s synth music in his film, but he found it difficult to combine the music with the intense action.
Instead, composer Tyler Bates composed a score using heavy orchestra music. Marshall also hoped to include the song "Into the Light" by the Banshees, but it was left out due to the producer disliking it and the cost being too high to licence it.
For its theatrical run, the film was originally intended to be distributed by Focus Features under Rogue Pictures , but the company transferred Doomsday among other films to Universal Pictures for larger-scale distribution and marketing beginning in Rotten Tomatoes on UK's general consensus .
Doomsday was not screened for critics in advance of its commercial opening in cinemas. The website's consensus reads, " Doomsday is a pale imitation of previous futuristic thrillers, minus the cohesive narrative and charismatic leads.
Alison Rowat of The Herald perceived Doomsday as "decidedly everyday" for a thriller, with Marshall's script having too many unanswered questions and characters not fully developed despite a decent cast.
Rowat said, "In his previous films, Marshall made something out of nothing. Here he does the opposite". The critic acknowledged the attempted homages and the B-movie approach but thought that "there has to be something more".
Alonso Duralde of MSNBC described Doomsday : "It's ridiculous, derivative, confusingly edited and laden with gore, but it's the kind of over-the-top grindhouse epic that wears down your defenses and eventually makes you just go with it.
Reviewer James Berardinelli found the production of Doomsday to be a mess, complaining, "The action sequences might be more tense if they weren't obfuscated by rapid-fire editing, and the backstory is muddled and not all that interesting.
He added, "There's no question that Doomsday does what it does with vigor, high technical prowess and just enough humor to avoid turning ridiculous.
Hartlaub said of the effect, "Hire a couple of great stuntmen and a halfway sober cinematographer, and you didn't even need a screenwriter.
Matt Zoller Seitz of The New York Times saw Rhona Mitra's character as a mere impersonation of Snake Plissken and considered the film's major supporting characters to be "lifeless".
Seitz described his discontent over the lack of innovation in the director's attempted homages of older films: " Doomsday is frenetic, loud, wildly imprecise and so derivative that it doesn't so much seem to reference its antecedents as try on their famous images like a child playing dress-up.
Scotland's tourism agency VisitScotland welcomed Doomsday , hoping that the film would attract tourism by marketing Scotland to the rest of the world.
A spokesperson from Scottish Screen anticipated, "It's likely to also attract a big audience who will see the extent to which Scotland can provide a flexible and diverse backdrop to all genres of film.
In contrast, several parties have expressed concern that Doomsday presents negativity in England's latent view of Scotland based on their history.
Angus MacNeil , member of the Scottish National Party , said of the film's impact: "The complimentary part is that people are thinking about Scotland as we are moving more and more towards independence.
But the film depicts a country that is still the plaything of London. It is decisions made in London that has led to it becoming a quarantine zone.
Director Neil Marshall applied for membership with the organisation to add "fresh blood", but Doomsday was not mentioned during jury deliberations.
According to a spokesperson from the organisation, the film was not formally submitted for consideration, and no one directly invited the filmmakers to discuss a possible entry.

View All Critic Reviews Apr 12, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would even though the old virus story has been done before, It's basically 28 Days Later and Mad Max mixed, It had a chance to be different to the rest of its type but chose to go with action and gore, A few silly scenes ruined it but the action was ok, Predictable at times and not greatly acted but it's pretty fun in places, Could of been worse, Could of been better.
Jamie C Super Reviewer. May 03, A deadly virus appeared in Scotland killing millions. UK government had no choice but to completely isolate Scotland by destroying all access points and leaving the inhabitants to die.
A little Scottish girl was rescued before the final quarantine, 27 years later, she became a top soldier. The deadly virus appeared in UK once again, it is up to a team of experts to go inside Scotland to find a cure, or die trying.
Possibly one of the weakest Marshall films. He drew his influence from many science fiction films such as Mad Max, 28 Days Later, Omegaman, etc. Some parts worked well, some parts didn't.
I enjoyed the fights and costumes but to see Scottish people regress to Feudal society was a bit silly.
I like how realistic in terms of the setting of the film it was but it failed to present a well sounded narrative. Sylvester K Super Reviewer. Dec 25, Because it's been crafted with so much energy, style and good heartedness.
The problem overall is that it lacks a cohesive narrative to support the eye popping beauty of it's surface visuals.
In desperation, the British Government evacuates as many survivors as it can out of the infected area, and then builds a wall, preventing the remainder from escaping.
Thirty years later, with the wall still up and the victims all but forgotten, the virus breaks out again. The Government decides to send a crack team of operatives, led by Major Eden Sinclair, into the hot zone to investigate the possibility of a cure.

These scenes do entertain and do prevent one worrying too much about the logic of a Bentley flying down a highway in a Scottish wasteland for example but the film generally doesn't manage to do this across the entire film.
Another factor is the violence. OK, I'm not a gore fan at the best of times but I'm not totally against it either. Here there are plenty of gory effects but they do rather detract from the entertainment value of the film by being a bit off-putting in just how graphic and frequent they are.
This aspect is also part of the product that contributes to the uneven tone and content. Mitra deserves a lot of credit for her turn and it is a shame that Doomsday will not boost her career as much as she deserves.
It is not that she delivers a great character, but that, as an action heroine she does all that is required by being sexy, strong, dark, fearless and attractive, and in doing it she drives the film and makes it work in a way that it may not have done without her.
Alongside her the rest of the cast do not have as much to offer but are all OK. Doomsday is a strange film, which wears the reasons for its relative failure all over its running time.

Why choose South Africa to double, badly, for the Scottish highlands? And, if the image of a knight in armour charging a modern soldier was the idea that sparked the whole film, why is that scene such a damp squib?
