Watching this film left me feeling a bit funny.

On the plus side tension, decent performances, an intriguing concept, value-for-money special effects, critique of the overweening state, realism about the darkness in man's heart, Bob Hoskins and Alexander Siddig in minor roles...

On the minus side gratuitous nudity, gruesome violence, a silly ending and an even sillier cannibal feast sequence.

I also thought it was surprising that no other film has been called Doomsday, though, in the century of cinema that we've had.
