Trailer Blazer: 'Doomsday'

Posted on

Take a heaping cup of I Am Legend, add a soupçon of Road Warrior, and then deep-fry that mutha in Escape From New York and you’ll have the awesomeness that is Neil Marshall’s Doomsday.

This is like the geek equivalent of stuffed french toast: goodness, injected inside of goodness, lathered in goodness. Malcolm McDowell as the Duke of London and Rhona Mitra as Snake Plissken? C’mon! Sure it looks derivative, but it’s derivative of stuff that I love: car chases, genetic mutants, beautiful women kicking ass.
