Fuck you Critics or Doomsday blew my balls off!

I am hear to tell everybody not to listen to the pansy ass pretentious, highbrow film critics that they can blow it out their ass, because they just can't have fun at the movies anymore. Lets just look at a few excerpts from some of these so called critics.
Entertainment Weekly Gregory Kirschling -
Marshall cribs whole sections from other movies (Aliens and The Road Warrior, most blatantly) so baldly that you have to wonder how he'd like it if someone ripped off "The Descent" this egregiously. And let's have one more just for effect. Roger Moore from the Orlando Sentinel.And imagine the first serious competition to the Deutsche dummkopf Uwe Boll as "worst director" working today, thanks to this mad and maddening mash-up genre picture. Now this is just wrong to tyr to compare Marshall with the shitfest that is Uwe Boll's Ouevre. I am biased though cause I have a history of volleying emails to Mr. Moore after he anally raped The Devil's Rejects and Haute Tension, 2 of my recent favorite Horror films. This man just doesn't enjoy horror films and I wonder why he even reviews them since he rarely enjoys them
These and other film critics just don't understand these and other genre films. These are films you are supposed to have fun with, your not supposed to look at these films like it's Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal. These are films that you are supposed to come out of and say "hell yeah, that movie blew my fucking balls off." Not, "Ehh, the camerawork was too frenetic and the story was highly improbable." That just pisses me off, but enough ranting for now lets talk about a hell of a kickass movie "Doomsday"
The basic plot for this film Scotland has been sealed off with a huge wall and automated guns after a virus called the Reaper virus came loos and decimated the country. We flash forward 30 years later and it looks as if the virus is making a comeback and this time it's hitting England. The Government enlists a soldier, Sinclair played laconically by the yummy Rhona Mitra, to go beyond the wall and find a doctor who was working on a cure played by malcolm mcdowell, to see if he has a cure since they have satellite photos of people being alive after 30 years of isolation. She leads a special forces unit that goers back into Scotland, and everything is fine until mohawk cannibal punks show up and the fun begins. I could go on but I want people to see the film and not listen to my play by play. Let's just say, this is Neil Marshall's)Dog Soldiers and he Descent) homage to The Road Warrior, Escape From New York and 2019:the Fall of New York. It has a great black humor edge to it. Like the scene where the head cannibal Sol, comes onstage and they play a Fine Young Cannibals song, that was hilarious. The film is bloody as hell and once the action starts it keeps going at a frenetic pace til the end of the film. I have to say the ending has to be one of my favorite endings for any film ever.
The acting was great with Mitra, Mcdowell,bob Hoskins, Sean Pertwee and Alexander Siddig turning in fine performances. The editing was phenomenal too, and this films car chases blew Death Proof away. This is quite different from Marshall's other films. They were small claustrophobic horror films where Doomsday is a balls to the walls scifi action film from beginning to end.
I cannot recommend this film enough, if you are a genre fan, you really need to seek out Doomsday and immerse yourself in this world of guns, explosions and cannibals.
5/5
