Critic Reviews of "Doomsday (2008)"Time OutNovember 24, 2011
Marshall's adrenalin-fuelled skill and enthusiasm propel the action forward with reckless abandon.Entertainment WeeklyMarch 19, 2008
[Director] 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.Village VoiceMarch 18, 2008
I still believe with all my heart that no movie with real car stunts, a tough-chick hero, and a severed head that thunks directly into the camera can be all bad. But this is pushing it.Philadelphia InquirerMarch 18, 2008
Most fantasy-action films blow their budgets in the first half-hour, and limp home with their makeup smeared. Doomsday is unusually patient, smartly saving most of its fireworks for the later innings.Toronto StarMarch 17, 2008
If you can accept this farrago of nonsense, and enjoy simulated beheadings and lopped-off hands and massive spurts and splashes of blood, this may be the movie for you.NewsdayMarch 17, 2008
Much as one might admire the British health care system as presented in the documentary Sicko, even Michael Moore would have to admit they have a hard time over there coping with apocalyptic viruses.Cinemaphile.orgJuly 01, 2013
...a Whitman's sampler of bizarre story ideas and visual gimmicks, congealing around a premise that is so straightforward that it affords them no groundwork for stability or realization.Lyles' Movie FilesAugust 29, 2012
I somehow ended up admiring "Doomsday" for being the most unapologetically ridiculously, preposterous action movie I've ever seen.Movies.comApril 04, 2011
In terms of sheer excitement, it's the best movie of 2008.Lessons of DarknessMarch 29, 2010
As it slogs through one hectic yet mundane set pieces after another, the film slowly drowns in its own pool of clichés.Creative LoafingAugust 06, 2008
One's enjoyment of Doomsday might stem from how much one admires a blatant homage to the 1980s.Washington TimesAugust 02, 2008
Doomsday might seem novel - if you've never seen "The Road Warrior," "Aliens," "Escape from New York" or any other post-apocalyptic flick before.
