Action Movie For The Day - DOOMSDAY (2008)
Exciting throwback to the Escape from NY and Mad Max films of old. When a virus breaks out in Scotland, the entire country is quarantined from the rest of the world. Years later when the same virus breaks out in London, an elite unit led by bad ass Eden Sinclair (a tough Rhona Mitra) is sent into Scotland to find a cure. Of course the team runs into survivors of the virus who have become violent and cannibalistic. This film mixes the elements of Escape from NY and Mad Max and throws in some Resident Evil. Mitra kicks ass as Eden. She doesn't say a lot but she can throw down with the best of them. I enjoyed it.
