YMMV / Doomsday

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: A bunch of fat guys in kilts suddenly start dancing the can-can in the middle of the cannibals' rave party. (How the heck can there still be any fat people left in a dog-eat-dog post-apocalyptic land like this?) Even for this particular film, it's still just plain weird.
  • Cliché Storm: The film is entirely patched together from pieces cannibalized from various popular post-apocalyptic action flicks of the 80s, refined into a watchable if rather bizarre derivative popcorn flick. Experienced viewers may be able to predict a number of the events in this film several scenes ahead of their occurrence, though this doesn't make the film any less entertaining. It also stops taking itself seriously about halfway through, which helps immensely.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Viper. At least half the talk for this movie is about how incredibly hot she was.
    • If the main page is anything to go by, the unnamed extra in the bath with a shotgun.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Apparently the rest of the world saw Britain as this when they walled off the entire population of Scotland to die horribly of the plague, turning their backs on it.
    • Kane's so pissed by this that he tortures his own daughter for bringing outsiders to his castle. He does have a point, albeit an amoral one; the only thing keeping the Reaper virus from annihilating their little kingdom the way it has the rest of Scotland is their genetic resistance to the disease, and interbreeding with people who don't have it could very well wipe them out. The way he frames it as her having "sinned" by bringing people that aren't from their "pure" bloodline to his little kingdom is certainly something that could bite them in the ass further down the line, however.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Malcolm McDowell as King of Medieval Land, for about five seconds.
  • Signature Scene: Viper toying with Talbot before setting him ablaze and twirling her fingers is by far the most recognisable moment of the entire film.
  • The Woobie: Cally, certainly after the brief torture scene.
