Doom

Based on the legendary first-person PC Shooter, this sci-fi horror stars Karl Urban and Dwayne Johnson as members of a Space Marines unit sent to investigate the mysterious events in a research facility on Mars that has ceased all communication with scientists. What the squad discovers is a monstrosity that their vast firepower may not be able to hold back. Co-stars Rosamund Pike and Deobia Oparei (who would go on to co-star with Urban again for 2012’s Dredd).

Reviews & comments

Rips and tears itself apart!

The Geets (greats): A somewhat passable movie adaptation of the beloved game series which stays true to some extent of originality and set design. I appreciated the unique way of filming which gave me chills which resonate with the stereotypical 'science-gone-wrong' Horror situations, such as Aliens (1986). This movie may not rank as high up there but...

If gaming is about playing, why would a gamer want to watch movies like this?

I kept expecting the "Game Over" message to flash up, but it never did.

Doom is like some kid came over and is using your computer and won't let you play.

There's so little to go wrong that those who like their entertainment mindless and violent will find little fault.

What might have made for exciting action scenes tend to become mechanical exercises in first-person-shooter monster-blasting.
