Doomsday (2008) Review:

When out in 2008, Doomsday came as a very good surprise and the final confirmation that Neil Marshall is one of the greatest modern director of the horror genre (after directing Dog Soldiers and before The Descent).

The setting of the story is fascinating and reminds of other apocalyptic zombie’s film such as Resident Evil II or Land of the DeadDoomsday takes time to build the background for the story, and as soon as this done, the film suddenly takes another speed as we get to meet the inhabitant of the secured zone. They really are real craziest and definitely the highlight of the film. The references to the Mad Max world are everywhere and the weapons, the vehicles, and the looks of these guys are just completely mad. Neil Marshall has created a full world in this film and one could feel there were a lot of efforts put into making it look very realistic.

With lots of great action scenes and a solid plot, Doomsday proved to be a great mix between Escape From New York, and Mad Max. A total success that I highly recommend!
