Doomsdayer (1999) from Tuna

Doomsdayer (1999) is a zero budget James Bond type film that is mostly explosions, stunts and hand-to-hand fighting, with little plot and even  less character development. 


Both women (names in aqua) show buns, part of a breast, and Jago shows what could be full  frontal or some skin colored panty
 The bad guy is going to use some magic machine to make all nuclear reactors melt down, so he can save the world by killing most of the population and letting those remaining start over with great hindsight. Our hero (Joe Lara), of course, is to stop them. Along the way, he meets up with old flame January Isaacs (IMDB calls her Sarah Gomez, which she used briefly at the start of her career, and has no idea who January Isaacs is, even though they list her), and is then taken in tow by Alexa Jago, who turns out to be a spy.

DVD info from Amazon.


The film is mostly technically competent, and January Isaacs is fiery and exotic with some acting ability, but, with this plot and budget, they never had a chance. 

Scoop's notes: I haven't seen it, but it stars Udo Kier and Brigitte Nielsen. Pretty much says it all.

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 4.1 
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C-. If you are a total action addict, you might enjoy this.
