All-action sci-fi adaptation of the popular first-person shooter computer game, starring The Rock and Karl Urban. On the planet Mars, a team of scientists have set up an experimental research facility that suddenly ceases communication with no warning. A Rapid Response Tactical Squad, led by Sarge (The Rock) and Grimm (Urban), are dispatched to investigate, and make the shocking discovery that the scientists have opened a dimensional gateway to Hell itself. Against all the odds, the squad have to fight their way through the base to shut off the portal, and then kill every horrific escaped demon creature before the hordes of Hell can reach Earth.
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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

And so to Doom the movie...
Starring "The Rock" and "Karl Urban" (Mccoy in the new Trek Movie) This film was never in the running for an Oscar but at just under 2 hours its not at all bad. Infact I rather enjoyed it . Enclosed, dark and at times claustraphobic in nature the film follows a group of "space marines" sent to deal with a "situation" off planet. The plotline is bread and butter without too much jam and even admist the death and destruction it has a tongue in cheek sense of the humour and a slight twist on the lead actor role.
The quality of the Blu Ray is excellent with good audio to boot and has found itself in my blu ray machine on more than 1 occasion since its purchase.
I suppose there are many folks who would say "your a doom fan you shouldn't like it" and my reply is "I'm a film fan too and I enjoy a good space marine romp" which is just what this film is
But this did. It's silly, and over the top which is exactly what it's supposed to be. There are plenty of easter eggs for us Doom nerds to snigger at, original sound effects and the brilliant fps view at the end of the film which I watched again straight after watching the film.
Doom was never going to win any oscars - it's target audience isn't exactly mainstream. But it is what it is - A film made for Doom fans clearly made BY Doom fans.
Glad to see it on Blu-Ray - Gonna buy my copy now as someone has pinched my DVD (See it's so good someone stole it!!!!)

But as I mentioned earlier, many of the game's visual aspects are very well rendered in the film, some elements looking as if they were lifted directly from the game. Most of the action takes place in dark corridors lit by the torches of the soldiers, just as in the game. This is a good example of some of the concessions made to keep the film close to the game, since the soldiers, despite having other high tech equipment, have to rely on torches, in place of IR or night scopes or any other gadgets, to see in the dark.Read more ›
