Storyline

A lethal virus spreads throughout Scotland, infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands. To contain the threat, acting authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The quarantine is successful. Three decades later, the Reaper virus violently resurfaces in London. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair, is urgently dispatched into Scotland to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare. Written by Nicolettea

Trivia

Two DDS soldiers sent into Scotland are named "Miller" and "Carpenter". George Miller directed the "Mad Max" trilogy and John Carpenter directed Escape from New York (1981) and Escape from L.A. (1996), all heavily influential to this film. See more »

Goofs

After Sinclair and co are captured, Sinclair had the remnants of a can of beer poured over her head. The can would appear to be pristine and new. Given that it's thirty years since any cans were manufactured, how is this even remotely possible? Aside from this, there are numerous other examples throughout the film of materials that cannot possibly have been manufactured to a high quality since the virus swept the country and are in a condition that does not fit with either being low quality and non-machined or with having suffered three decades of wear and tear. (The paper plates handed out during the "Medium Rare" scene are another prime example.) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Kane: Like so many epidemics before, the loss of so many lives began with a single microscopic organism. It's human nature to seek even the smallest comfort in reason, or logic for events as catastrophic as these. But a virus doesn't choose a time or place. It doesn't hate or even care. It just happens.

Awesome action flick. Very entertaining. Who cares for the plot.
11 December 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I saw this with my dad in a theatre in 2008. As a fan of Neil Marshal, I enjoyed it. His Dog soldiers n The Descent r very good horror films. I found this flick to be a very entertaining n action packed. It was like Mad max on steroids. This movie is a pure adrenaline rush with lots of action and suspense, violence and gore. Its an over-the-top grindhouse epic. A homage to Mad max, Escape from New York, Death race, 28 days later. Awesome visual effects. The pacing is very good. Action n horror fans will not b disappointed. The gore was excellent n top notch. The action is superb, the car chase is excellent with lots of body count n superb camera work n loud music. Mitra is gorgeous, the cinematography is excellent. Pure action n entertainment at its best. Bought a DVD of it recently. Need to revisit. Need to check the hot babe Lee-Anne Liebenberg.
