Neil Marshall’s “Doomsday” is one of those movies at the top of my “must-see” list, even though I haven’t exactly heard great things about it. But what the hell, it has three of my favorite movie things: a post-apocalyptic plot, crazy mad max style grungy action, and Rhona Mitra kicking everyone’s ass in a tight black top. I mean, come on, what more can you ask for? How about more images from the movie.
A lethal virus spreads throughout a major country and kills hundreds of thousands. To contain the newly identified Reaper, the authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The literal walling-off works for three decades–until Reaper violently resurfaces in a major city. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair, is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare.
Starring Rhona Mitra, Bob Hoskins, Alexander Siddig, Adrian Lester, Sean Pertwee, and directed by Neil Marshall.
Doomsday arrives on March 14th, 2008.
