    For a big-screen disposable, Doom has a few jolts, a few good laughs and an attractive female lead to whom you want to say, "What's a nice girl like you doing on a Mars like this?"
  2. Doom may be by the numbers, with a roll call of colorful types systematically exterminated while The Rock entertains with cartoonish expressions and reactions (the closest the film comes to personality).
  3. The Rock's ungainly performance is somewhat alleviated by Karl Urban as a crew member and Rosamund Pike as his twin sister.
  4. We don't need a discussion of plot in a review of a movie made from a video game, do we? Nor do we care whether the characters are complicated (no), the acting is sophisticated (no), the direction is competent (no) or the camerawork is clever (no).
  5. The latest failed Hollywood attempt to make a movie from a video game.

    Go for the gore (there's lots of it), but stay for the immortal line: "Now let's go find the body this arm belongs to."
  7. This claustrophobic mess of a movie offers only carnage.

    Take it for what it is. A monster bashing flick much like 80's the thing. Great special effects and that little sequence toward the end Take it for what it is. A monster bashing flick much like 80's the thing. Great special effects and that little sequence toward the end brought back memories of terrifying monsters jumping from every corner in the game. Overall the movie did a good job at staying true to the games. I loved it. Expand

    I had high hopes for this movie. It turned out not to be what I expected, or hoped. Doom was not the first video game based movie, and is I had high hopes for this movie. It turned out not to be what I expected, or hoped. Doom was not the first video game based movie, and is certainly won't be the last. The story as it was portrayed was good. It had taken elements from the video game Expand

Doom is a decent game (I personally hate it, but whatever), but it should not be a movie! There was nothing to this film, much like the game. Also like the game, intelligent people will be finished with it way before they could possibly be entertained. Expand
