If you’re a fan of action, horror, and the 1980s, this is the film to watch.
If you don’t enjoy those things, stop reading. This is for the true believers.
Doomsday is a love letter to 70’s and 80’s classics like Mad Max and Escape From New York. It’s pretty reminiscent of Grindhouse: Planet Terror, so if you enjoyed that modern cult classic, you could get some kicks out of this one too.
Rhona Mitra sizzles as the stoic feminine warrior. She kicks ass, she’s looks good. Bob Hoskins gives the movie heart with his fatherly performance, granted he gets less screen time than he deserves. Malcolm McDowell is as entertaining as always, he brings some class to the occasion. But enough about the cast, how about the mayhem? Yes, this film has it all. Crazy punks, medieval gladiators, and modern futuristic soldiers. It’s got tons of inventive kills and bloody gore to spare.
The soundtrack featuring 80’s style heavy synth, grandiose opera, and 1980’s hits such as „Good Thing”. There’s plenty of enjoyable, cheesy yet clever dialogue.
What more do you need? Action/Horror fans, check out this fun gorefest. Enjoy.
