So Doomsday comes out tomorrow and I pretty much have decided to make a blind buy of it, however, it doesn't hurt to ask my fellow freaks what they thought of it.

I found it one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The only good thing about it was Rhona Mitra.

I see....I'm surprised because I thought The Descent and Dog Soldiers were both really good.

The previews looked terrible...crap at the bottom of the barrel.

I probably didn't mind it as much as others because of it's setting.....but it was sorely missing humour, which helped Dog Soldiers no end.

Meh....if you enjoyed KOTCS, you'll enjoy this. Mindless, logic defying movie.

I'm interested to see your update. I almost made a blind purchase of this myself on the strength of Dog Soldiers and The Descent. People seemed pretty split on it, so I held out.

There's another thread around here about it that I started when it debuted. I actually liked it a lot - lots of elements from other films - 28 days later meets Road Warrior - but I thought it a lot of fun.

Had some(I stress the word some) cool moments and parts. But overall I'm glad I didn't buy it.

The only cool thing in the whole movie is you can see a member of the Baseball Furies in the crowd when that douche bag is on stage dancing around like an ass.

I LOVED LOVED Dog Soldiers and LOVED Descent, but this move in NO WAY resembles the later 2 in terms of screen writing or general coolness.

Doomsday is so lost half the time its a little unbelievable.

Its Escape From New York meets 28 Dater Later meets Resident Evil meets The Warriors meets Mad Max meets Gladiator meets Robin Hood :monkey4 :monkey4 :monkey4

Rent it before you buy it!!

EDIT: Added in Escape from New York to the list of movies this movie attempted to emulate. Thnx Obsolete Man.

Escape from New York + Mad Max with a dash of 28 Days Later seems like a can't miss recipe for asskickery, but Doomsday somehow managed to take those elements and make them tedious. There are a couple of cool moments later on but by the time I got there it was too little too late. I saw the unrated version, and there was a lot of excessive gore that seemed unnecessary and out of place. It's not that I'm against gore, but a lot of it here just felt wedged in as an attempt to make up for a rather dull movie.

Although this was freaking hilarious---

I'm shocked by all of the hatred for this movie...and from fanboys at that.

If you haven't seen it, give it a chance. It's certainly flawed, but I enjoyed the hell out of it.

I thought it was a hoot. And that Rhona Mitra is too hot for words. Loved her. Hope to see a sequel. The movie cracked me up. Not great or anything, just funny.

Tongue on cheek but great fun, Mad Max seems boring compared to Doomsday and by that I mean film-makers get to use ridiculous amounts of gore these day, gore which the Mad Max movies could have done with. Well worth a watch but Oscar worthy I think nothttp://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/fighting/fighting0035.gif
