Occasione sfruttata a metà per il grande Neil Marshall.La prima parte,smaccatamente carpenteriana,regge abbastanza pur con un plot stra-abusato e crea le premesse per uno sviluppo originale. Purtroppo la seconda parte cala drasticamente,diventa un Mad Max ancora più trash e si butta tutto in una caciarata esagerata( vedi inseguimento di sette ore).Personaggi piattissimi,storia che mano a mano si perde...peccato
Trashy and it knows it. Overblown and scatterbrained in its mash-up style and frantically all over the place, Doomsday is pure party-film exhilaration. The sum of its influences-- the sci-fi action of Mad Max, the cool of Escape from New York, Quentin Tarantino-style excess, and even medieval/gladiatorial elements-- thus putting a smile on my lips. I wanted a bit more development at times, but this is great cheese.
Unashamedly OTT, Marshall revels in his exploitation influences from Road Warrior to THE Warriors via a dose of Cannibal Holocaust with some Pulp Fiction thrown in for good measure. Pure and utter trash which is exactly what I wanted from this film, toppin' stuff!
That tattooed chick in the still up there was the only cool thing about this movie. And she friggin' dies after two minutes of screen time. I hope I've ruined this movie for everyone, because what a piece of crap this is.
Neil Marshall has considerable level of insanity. It seems like he has slept with Paul Verhoeven before filming Dommsday. And it is also an homage to Ozploitation. However, the cast is a black hole of charisma.
I realize this movie isn't great, it's got problems, but boy do I have fun with it anyway, it's probably the only movie in history to stage a MAD MAX style car chase set to music by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. It's a John Carpenter/George Miller mash-up that's lots of fun if you can get past its occasional fanboyish tendencies.
