Grab your BFG and get ready to kick some Martian-demon butt in Doom, another entry in the increasingly crowded videogame-to-movie genre. The Rock plays Sarge, the commander of a squad of Marines sent to investigate a disturbance at a scientific research facility on Mars. Among the squad is John Grimm (Karl Urban, who played Eomer in The Lord of the Rings), who turns out to have had a previous relationship with Samantha (Rosamund Pike, Die Another Day), the scientist who's accompanying the Marines in order to retrieve some vital data from the facility. Based on id Software's legendary first-person shooter, Doom tries its best to look like a game, with dark, angled corridors, ferocious creatures appearing out of nowhere, and a variety of lethal weapons that will, like the aforementioned BFG, warm the cockles of a gamer's heart. There's also one memorable sequence that actually turns the movie into a first-person shooter; the good news is that in the context of the whole film, it's not quite as goofy as it might have been. And that's not a bad frame of reference for the film in general. Considering the game-to-movie field includes such duds as Wing Commander, if you go into Doom with low expectations, you'll probably find it a surprisingly respectable horror/sci-fi thriller in the Resident Evil vein (including its somewhat obligatory subplot of corporate wrongdoing). Also in its favor is that it's unabashedly R-rated, for the extreme gore that is a trademark of the game. After all, the purpose of the movie is to pack scares and thrills into a setting that gamers will quickly recognize. In that sense, it qualifies as a success. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally ... The Rock ... has come back to Mars July 5 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Maybe it's partly because I'm old enough to remember when Doom was the gaming experience of a lifetime and partly because I can't get enough of seeing The Rock layeth the smacketh down on any sentient being, but I loved Doom. I wasn't all that confident at the beginning, though. You've got like seven or eight soldiers going in to the battle zone, and that made me wonder how they were going to string this thing out for an hour and forty five minutes. Then there's the fact that the movie drastically rewrites the whole Doom story from the origin of the alien creatures to the manner in which things ultimately play out. Lest I forget, you also have a couple of incredibly annoying characters you have to put up with and just hope they are among the first to die. When all was said and done, though, there was no doubt that I had enjoyed the heck out of this movie. It wasn't so much all the blood and gore (although blood and gore are always important) as it was the intelligence of the script. Stay with me now, and let me explain. I'm talking context here, and in the context of a cinematic adaptation of a first-person shooter video game, this script is rather exceptional. The original Doom storyline was changed for a purpose here -- and it made for a much better film than it might have been otherwise by taking us beyond a superficial battle of good vs. monstrous evil and allowing for things to play out somewhat differently than I was expecting. The brother-sister relationship (and let me just thank the filmmakers for not putting some kind of trite romance into the mix) that stands near the heart of the story also plays into the conclusion quite well (and, dare I say it, leaves a little wiggle room for a sequel).

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun shoot em up movie for the whole family April 3 2006
By scott
Format:DVD
This movie was based off of Doom 3. When you watch it, you'll notice some similarities. I've played the game and it's great, but the movie unfortunatly doesn't live up to the game. It reminded me a lot of the resident evil movie.
Pros. about the movie: great special effects, gore, first person camera angels, cool monsters, guns and explosions, oh yeah.
Cons.: not much of a story, plot is pretty basic, starts off too quick, didn't have the same feeling when playing the game and the acting is moderate. The one thing that they changed from the story in the game is that the scientists don't open the gate to hell, they make it a genetic mutation that makes everyone turn into zombies. So sad.
So far, this is the best game movie out there, but still doesn't match up to the game. It should of been more scary, gory, a better story and had them open a gate to hell. If your making a movie from a game, make it like the game. Same looking characters, enviroments, atmosphere, don't ad in heavy metal music just to make the movie better (e.i.doom, resident evil) and don't change the story, (unless it's extremely cheesy).
P.S. You don't have to have well known actors and actresses to make a movie good. Come on. (e.i. dare devil, electra, cat women, x-men, resident evil.)

2.0 out of 5 stars This could ahve been done right. Aug. 12 2006
Format:HD DVD
I must say that I wasn't at all impressed with this movie. I know Doom Fans are not going to agree but when going into a film that is based on a game, you have to forget that the game came first. Its a movie not a game. The first thing did wrong with this film was cast the Rock as a major part. I did enjoy his death but there was to much of him to make it worth it. I liked the Rock in wrestling which is where he should have stayed. The usual digital effects were impressive as digital effects usually are. But the story was lacking, and I was later tired of them having to check the same room over and over again. At the first of the movie a girl seals herself behind a thick metal door only to have it broke through. I waited the whole movie to see what big monster broke the door but to my disappointment, there wasn't any. The first person view was cool but not needed. Remember, movie not game. Overall, I think I could have did without seeing this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Movie Ever Feb. 13 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Starts off with potential, but the the final 20 Minutes of the Movie is a complete Wast of Time! So bad, that my rating dropped from a 3 star down to a 1.
A just to clarify, I like action no brainer movies...but this was well below a Resident Evil 2 type flick.
