Where to begin... well Doom the movie was never going to live up to Doom the game, how could you put so much hardcore violence on screen and have a narrative, let's face it Doom was all about getting the best weapon, as much ammo as you could find and killing anything that moved, oh and solve the odd puzzle if all the killing got boring ;). So they went the classic Scifi plot route, scientists in a remote base (this time off world) doing crap they're really shouldn't when something goes wrong (surprise! no not really), cut to distress call sent and a small group of marines dispatched off world to investigate, (if you've watched aliens and who hasn't you know what's coming, if not WTF) bad idea. Though no where near as good as the afore mentioned scifi action classic this film does have it's moments and is not as bad as some game to film releases (Uwe Bolls Afraid of the dark-terrible film & he's made others since) So if you feel like watching some b-movie scifi action then give this a viewing, it's never going to win any awards but you should find it entertaining.

While the premise is one with a lot of promise, the execution of the plot descends into a one-on-one battle that is illogical and irrational. The movie is based on the video game and at the end, it becomes more a video game that it is a movie.
Humans arriving on Mars have discovered an archeological site that is astounding. As part of the site there is a travel device that allows humans and material to be transported almost instantaneously and both ways between a site on Earth and a location near the archeological dig. This is important for it means that there is the potential for things on Mars to be transported back to Earth.
There is a major corporate scientific research facility that is part of the overall Mars colony and there is a major breach of quarantine, with very brutal creatures now roaming the facility. They are humans that have been infected and they become powerful and extremely violent, killing all humans that they come in contact with. A small band of Marines armed with powerful weapons led by The Rock and Karl Urban are dispatched to deal with the threat and make sure that the contagion is unable to make the journey to Earth.
The movie starts out with a degree of suspense as the situation is slowly explained to the viewer via the explanations given to the Marines. The facility is owned by a corporation and the people there have explicit instructions to preserve all the data and share as little as possible with the Marines. The sister of the Karl Urban character is one of the primary scientists on the facility and there is some emotional tension between them.
The action is dynamic, suspenseful and brutal, the formerly human creatures are mindless and powerful killers, one step removed from the Marines that are mindful, powerful killers.

By Su TOP 100 REVIEWER on 6 Oct. 2009
Format: DVD
Something has gone horribly amiss at the scientific settlement of Olduvai on the planet of Mars, and a panicked Dr Carmack (named after the co-founder of ID Software, which released the game) calls for assistance. Cue the Sarge (Dwayne Johnson, former WWE wrestler "The Rock", The Scorpion King) and his men - a Special Forces team, the RRTS (Rapid Response Tactical Squad), who are dispatched via the transport system called the "arc" to place the site under quarantine and find out what is going on. When they arrive at the settlement they discover more of a problem than they expected.

One of the RRTS team has previous experience of Olduvai - his parents were killed on an archaeological dig and his twin sister, Sam (Rosamund Pike), who followed their footsteps, is working on Olduvai. John Grimm known as "Reaper" (Karl Urban - Out Of The Blue, Bones in Star Trek XI and Eomer in the The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) is apprehensive about going back.

People tend to fall into one of two camps where this film is concerned - you are either a fan of the games or you haven't seen/played the games.

I came to this film without knowing about the video games (in all honesty I'd never heard of the games prior to getting the film), so I came with an open mind and I enjoyed the film for what it is - an action flick with zombies thrown in.

I never played the game, but watching this movie made me think this is how the game must look like on the screen. If you like The Movie Alien, you might like this. Some of the same feel to it. Moments of on the edge of your seat suspense before all out action. Seemed more like a made for TV movie or direct video. But it is still worth watching. If you are not a big fan of the game...rent it.

4.0 out of 5 stars DOOM is great on Blu-Ray 8 Mar. 2009
By Jim M. Hastings-trew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
A lot of people like to criticize the DOOM movie as being a "bad" movie - a classic example of what goes wrong when you try to transport a thread-bare video game plot to the big screen. I'm here to disagree.

It's pretty easy to make the case that DOOM the movie is a terrible translation of DOOM the video game. The core of the "plot" from the game is entirely changed. In the game, irresponsible experiments with matter teleportation in a base on Mars opens a rift between our world, and Hell itself. Hell comes spilling through into our reality, and it's up to the player as a lone gun-wielding protagonist to mow his way through thousands of zombie humans and hell-spawned demons till he defeats the very forces of Hell. Nothing of that made it into the movie. The similarities are: It takes place on Mars, and there are guns. There is even a teleporter in the plot but it's simply there as a device to keep the action going quickly between the Mars installation and the final showdown in the bowels of the UAC facility on Earth. No Hell, no demons. This is all replaced by genetic experimentation aimed at creating a "super human" - something the ancient Martians failed at, with similar results.

This fundamental change to the plot of the story was a disappointment, but you know what? Everything else works. The sets look similar to the "feel" of the locations in Doom 3, the genetically altered humans look like a few of the monsters from Doom 3, and there is a hilariously great "first person shooter" sequence that had me smiling like a silly kid. Yeah, there's some woeful dialog, yeah, there are some lapses in logic (why would a science installation on Mars have a catacombs-style sewer system with the air-space venting directly into the facility itself - that would be one stinky, humid research lab) but overall, the movie is fun, it's competently made, there are some fun characters, there are some terrific set pieces, and in the end, it's entertaining.

The blu-ray release is a bit late to the party - the was one of the first HD-DVD titles released and it's taken a while to come out on the "other" HD format. The picture is stunning - dead perfect black levels, zero noise, crisp detail, no artifacting at all. The audio is great - only rarely do the action scenes break down into "noisy chaos" - overall it's highly detailed and nuanced.

Fans of the game are treated to some "in-jokes": The names of most of the scientists in the UAC lab are based on the names of the primary developers of the video game - John Carmack, Tim Willits, etc. While most of the weaponry in the movie is standard military type gear, the BFG 9000 from the game makes an appearance in the movie (looking sort of like a V-8 engine with a trigger). The teams names (Sarge, Reaper, etc.) come from another ID game - Quake 3. The "first person shooter" sequence in particular is a shout-out to fans of the genre, and is very well done.

Love it, hate it - it's a very well produced HD version of the movie, and despite it's flaws, it's a very entertaining action movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining.. 21 Jan. 2006
By J'aime - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Sometimes I marvel that so many people and movie critics expect every film to be Oscar material! Lots of action, fast paced, cool special effects--Doom is a solid, entertaining movie. The Rock and Karl Urban carried the story forward (and provided some nice eye candy to boot).

Are you going to find deep philosophical meaning in it? Only if you're drunk. Can you sit back and let go for a couple of hours? Definitely. Bottom line is if you're a fan of action movies, add this movie to the roster.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as bad as I feared it would be. 21 April 2006
By Robert Beveridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Doom (Andrzej Bartkowiak, 2005)

It took fourteen years, but one of the finest videogames of all time finally made it to the big screen. And there are some of us who've been waiting the whole time. And we get a movie starring The Rock?

The big surprise is, it's not all that bad.

Sure, it's possible to nitpick. What's a Doom movie without revenants, lost souls, archviles, rocket launchers, and for the love of all that's holy the cyberdemon?But when it comes right down to it, why not The Rock in a movie about a bunch of Marines fighting creatures from the depths of Hell? At least they didn't cast Steven Seagal. And when you've only got a little over an hour and a half, you have to cut a few things. At least we got the BFG. (And I wish the BFG's effect in the game was half as cool as its effect in the movie.)

The plot, what little there is (and pay attention, because it's different than the game, in one major aspect): A colony on Mars, originally started to support an archaeological dig, shut it down after weird, mysterious things began happening. Without anyone knowing, the head of the genetics lab, Dr. Carmack (Robert Russell, of the recent Dune TV miniseries), has reopened the archaeological dig, putting everyone in the colony in grave danger. They don't know that, of course, until it's far too late. They discover remains who have some pretty odd characteristics, which intrigue Carmack. He does some experiments that go, shall we say, awry. Marines, headed up by Sarge (The Rock), head to Mars in order to find out what's going on. Things blow up.

Doom the movie, like Doom the game, is a turn your brain off and watch things getting killed experience. If you were expecting high art, were you playing the same game the rest of us were? This is a movie that's all about violence, special effects, and things blowing up. And that's pretty hard to mess up, as long as you get halfway competent actors and a crack special effects team. Andrzej Bartkowiak (whose name is not Uwe Boll, something for which we can all thank whatever we hold holy) delivers both, and does it in style. The Rock heads up a rather capable acting team-- Reaper (The Chronicles of Riddick's Karl Urban), Duke (Resident Evil: Apocalypse's Raz Adoti), Destroyer (The Four Feathers' Deobia Oparei), The Kid (Al Weaver, recently in Radford's Merchant of Venice adaptation), Goat (Ian Fleming: Bondmaker's Ben Daniels), Mac (Phobia's Yao Chin), and Portman (Munich's Richard Brake). They're assisted on Mars by the quadraplegic Pinky (Layer Cake's Dexter Fletcher), on intel, and the obligatory beautiful scientist Sam (Die Another Day Bond girl Rosamund Pike). All of the above are at least decent actors.

Cliched? Sure, in spades. But again, this isn't a complex flick, just as it wasn't a complex game. And from that angle, this is a wonderfully satisfying film.

Still, I wish they'd found a way to work in the cyberdemon. *** ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Doom - Not like the game at all but a good action flick. 6 July 2009
By J. Greenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Everyone has mixed feelings on movies based on videogames. But every once in a while there is a good one that shines through the muck. This isn't that movie. That being said, Doom definitely stands on its own as a movie worth watching.
So long as you watch this movie without expecting anything but a action flick worth laughing at, then you will enjoy this movie. Not too mention the over the top First Person shooter bit at the end of the film. The movie at times gets a bit silly. But that's where its charm comes in. This is a top dollar B movie.
You will either love it or hate it, but as long as you don't watch it expecting demons from Hell popping up, you should be fine to give it a chance. I found the scenes with the Rock to be fun and entertaining. While Keith Urban truly gave me a reason to watch his other films after seeing this. There are some excellent one-liners in the movie, some which will haunt me for the rest of my life... But I am glad I saw this movie and am happy to own it on Blu-Ray.
Speaking of Blu-Ray, the transfer is quite good. A definite step up from the DVD, the action doesn't cause the frame rate to diminish in quality. The sound is as good to be expected in a horror film. All in all, a solid title for what it is. I give it 4 out of 5 stars based on the quality of the film itself rather than the quality of the Blu-Ray.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun 20 Nov. 2005
By Kasia S. - Published on Amazon.com
This one still boggles me!

I read the finicky reviews and was not expecting anything decent but it wasn't so bad!

Yeah at times I was thinking "why did these people film this? Did they need money?" because it is based on a game and has its own world, it does not follow what we on Earth would call a story taken from life.

The special effects were rough at times and made me think that whoever did Pac Man was still doing his work on this movie, but since it's based on a game I took it with a grain of salt. The creatures were pretty wild and I like "alien chase on starship" whether under water, in outer space or on a Moon type of a movie.

I liked how certain characters, without spoiling anything, changed sides and there were a few nice plot twists. Karl Urban and surprisingly the dude known as The Rock were pretty good in this one.

Fun movie to see, but it's not deep soulful or Oscar nominee material.

Pretty much eye candy, but overall better than I expected.
