Excuse me, but how is this a Horror movie?
As a fan of Neil Marshall (The Descent) and post-apocalyptic movies in general, I was with this movie (even though it started out pretty close to 28 Days/Weeks Later)...until it turned into Mad Max, then to Robin Hood (complete with contrived "Exit" and "Gift Shop" signs at the castle), then to Gladiator, and then back to Mad Max. Couple that with the inplausible scenario where a Bentley Continental can't outrun a horde of Road-Warrior-Rip-Off jalopies and you got yourself a dud.

Doomsday is one of the stupidest movies I have seen from last year with ridiculous gore, a terrible plot, and subpar acting. This is like the millionth virus save the world movie and my least favorite out of them. The story is pointless and has no brain so to keep reinforcing it was kind of annoying. All the actors were terrible and I disliked all of them. The action was the one thing that was good, but their was a ridiculous amount of gore that just piled onto too being way too over the top. The movie goes from savages grilling people and eating them to gladiator fights about an hour away from that location, which was really stupid. I was laughing at the constant stupidity of this movie. It would be a much better videogame then it would be a movie, because of the lack of a plot, but constant prescence of action and gore. The main star was alright and had some good features as the star but was not even close to keeping this movie afloat. Overall, Doomsday was a terrible sci fi movie with a bad plot but some alright action.
This is just a copycat movie, but in a bad way. I could appreciate it if I could see the parody or pastiche intentions, but this is just a bad movie.

28 weeks later + Mad Max + Lord of the rings +++++ = BAD BAD BAD MOVIE.
So random, so bizarre, that I really dig it. It's a complete tribute to everything from Escape To New York to 28 Days Later.
This film is a classic example of the detractors of the film just not getting it. Calling it a "pale imitation" of previous films belies a lack of understanding of the perspective of the film. This film is a very entertaining homage to Escape From New York and Road Warrior, not a "pale imitation." Waterworld was a bad rip-off )a pale imitation) of Road Warrior, changing things just enough to avoid being a straight remake. This film takes elements from "Escape" and Road Warrior so exactly that it is in effect in honor of these other films, in fact playing to fans of those films. There are multiple clever references/inside jokes to these 2 great films ("nice watch", the "chorus line"). There is even musical reference in the score to John Carpenter's "Escape" score. Rhona Mitra does a credible job as SD Plissken. And there are multiple excellent British character actors throughout. The mood and tension excellently reflect the story line. The cinematography is excellent. The CGI is used well as a supporting element rather than a focal point. All in all an entertaining sci-fi/action film, and a bit of fun for Escape From NY and Road Warrior fans.
Interesting take on post-apocalyptic films. It's inspired by A Boy And His Dog,Mad Max Trilogy,Gladiator,The Warriors and Escape From New York. But the thing is, it's more similar to Resident Evil,Underworld,and 28 Days Later. But the film features great action scenes and a lot of thrills.
a throw back to some of the films of the eighties this becomes a very creative film towards the end. the sad part the first half of the film is uneven and plays out like a low rent sci fi film.
the film shows some polish with direction which is showing marshall is going to become a very creative director
This was just terrible.

The best part was the first 2 minutes talking about how the virus spread and how humanity was in trouble.

I thought I was watching Mad Max all over again at one stage.

This was as bad as Battlefield Earth.
