It's 2035 and a virus that turns people into pustule-covered ground chuck " or ground bob or ground louise " is spreading throughout London so Brit Army Major Sinclair (Rhona Mitra, "Shooter"), with a small team of expendable bit players, is sent by copper Bob Hoskins ("Hollywoodland") into Glasgow to find a cure.
I'm leaving stuff out, but it makes sense in the movie. In Scotland, Sinclair finds two gone-to-seed groups of people"one that has seen "Escape From New York" too many times and one that has gone all medieval and is led by Malcolm McDowell ("Halloween").
Writer/director Neil Marshall follows up his well-received "babes in caves" thriller "The Descent" with this derivative hodge-podge of post apocalypse sci fi actioners. It's loud and violent and goofy and violent and amusing and violent. If you like car chases and explosions and a heaping helping of ultraviolence, you'll probably have a good time. If, however, the last movie you enjoyed was "Mona Lisa Smile," stay far away. R
