While being decently watchable, this movies biggest flaw is its lack of originality. It is pieced together with material from other films. Many scenes felt as though they were copied directly from a previous classic.

The film is about a deadly virus is found in Scotland on April 3rd 2008. In order to contain the virus they build a huge wall around the country; no one gets in and no one gets out. Twenty-five years later the virus resurfaces outside the wall, but this time they have another plan. Break into Scotland, find a cure and bring it out. The only problem is that Scotland is now inhabited by punk rocker cannibals and fierce knights on horseback. One woman enforcer goes in to kick some ass. This movie is crazy, over the top, out of it's mind crazy. The action was shot well in some scenes and are main hero of the film was bad-ass.

It wasn't your typical quarantine movie. There was definitely some original stuff here. But, Sol's death was waaay too melodramatic. In fact, the entire Sol character was a bit much. But still, not a bad movie.

Takes a bunch of different movies that have been done better ( a bit of Mad Max, a dash of 28 Days Later, typical shady government) and attempts to make it work. While not a complete failure, there's nothing outstanding here either.

A movie that blatantly borrows similar plot ideas from classic cult films such as 'Road Warrior' and 'Escape from New York.' It doesn't amount to much else besides the basics, so it comes off as a slight rip-off.

Maybe it was my lower than low expectations going after seeing the trailer, but I actually enjoyed this movie to an extent. The violence was there even though the plot is a rehash of previous post apocalyptic movies. The action scenes suffer from quick-cut syndrome which is becoming the norm for lazy uninspired film making. I wish more screen time was given to Craig Conway as the delightfully insane Sol, as his scenes really stood out above the rest. Neil Marshall proves that he is better suited as a director when movies have minimal scope and are confined to one area, as the previously brilliant The Descent. It's loud, it's stupid, but if you know this going in there's no reason not to enjoy it just a little.
