Just feels like The Rock marking time and paying more dues until the more interesting and challenging offers come his way.
| Original Score: 2/4
The long, long in development film adaptation of the classic video game shooter, Doom is a decent enough action film as long as you don't expect too much out of it.
| Original Score: 6/10
Just your basic Aliens rip-off with the name of a formerly popular video game franchise tacked on it.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A bland lifeless piece of science fiction fodder that really doesn't pay homage to the game.
Roger Ebert put it best, "Doom is like some kid came over and is using your computer and won't let you play."
| Original Score: D+
A nifty piece of low-ambition entertainment that knows exactly what it is, and delivers fairly well on its promises.
for a movie based on a video game, it brings what it promises
| Original Score: 3/5
If gaming is about playing, why would a gamer want to watch movies like this?
There's no rule that videogame movies have to be idiotic. And there's no rule that action-horror flicks need be dumb.
| Original Score: 2/5
Who knew that a life-and-death struggle in the dark with psychotic hybrids could end up being so bland?
The filmmakers produced a mindless action movie that isn't mindless enough.
Doom is irritating enough to make you blow off some steam by spending a couple hours gunning down demons.
| Original Score: 0/4
This actually isn't as bad as it could have been. That's not high praise.
What might have made for exciting action scenes tend to become mechanical exercises in first-person-shooter monster-blasting.
the final act is worth the price of admission for fans of the game. All things considered, though, I'd much rather just be playing the game.
| Original Score: 3/5
I kept expecting the "Game Over" message to flash up, but it never did.
This is fun, but not as much fun as just playing Doom.
Charmless and brainless.
| Original Score: 1/5
Will never be any better than average, but we were always promised unapologetic, violent, action-oriented fun and so if you go in with that in mind you'd have to have a stone-cold heart not to have a blast.
... a guilty pleasure.
