REVIEW: 'Doomsday' makes for a bad day
"Doomsday" is the worst film I've seen since I began reviewing flicks for the Southeast Missourian. The only reason I didn't walk out was the fact I was there to write something about the film.
So even though the film ruined my day, I'll hold up my end of the bargain. Here are a few words on the $30 million "Doomsday."
It's a disgraceful mishmash of stolen story lines that is original only in its over-the-top vulgarity and ultra violence. The acting — by names who have done prime work in the past — is stiff and sad to watch.
The plot is just absurd.
Remember the name of Neil Marshall, the director, writer and editor, for nothing else than to avoid any future films he might make. And shame on Rogue Pictures, the distributors of this film, for dumping such trash on the paying public.
