Doomsday (2008)

Directed by
Neil Marshall

Decades after the outbreak of the Reaper plague led to Scotland being walled off from the rest of Britain, a new contagion, and the possibility of a cure, leads an elite squadron north to see what, if anything, has survived.

One-eyed battleaxe Sinclair (Rhona Mitra, pictured) escaped Scotland as a child, just before the armed divide separated her forever from her past. Now she leads the team in search of answers and maybe even redemption. But the few Scottish survivors have banded together in cannibalistic gangs and finding rogue scientist Kane (Malcolm McDowell) will be a wee bit harder than they thought.

Directed by Neil Marshall (of Brit-horror Dog Soldiers) this is a Mad Max meets Escape From New York old-school action flick. Mitra's bionic-eyed fighting femme has more than a touch of Snake Plissken about her, fighting post-apocalyptic punks and mad scientists without ever losing her cool.

With the cynical, calculating suits in London manipulating the plague's spread for their own ends, there are plenty of boo-hiss villains to enjoy, even in the film's less bloodsoaked moments. An enjoyably over-the-top homage to shameless thrills.
