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.

Just your basic Aliens rip-off with the name of a formerly popular video game franchise tacked on it.

A nifty piece of low-ambition entertainment that knows exactly what it is, and delivers fairly well on its promises.

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.

Shlocky, brainless shoot-em-up fun that's almost as much fun as playing the game it's based on. Probably.

Videogame geeks and LAN-party enthusiasts everywhere, prepare to meet your Doom -- because it's really not all that bad.

There's never a dull moment in this surprisingly clever imagining of one of the most popular video games of all time, especially considering that the murderous mayhem and extreme bloodletting that are its hallmarks remain intact.

Doom is, hands-down, the best video game-based movie ever -- by far.

While it doesn't necessarily break much new ground, its makers are also smart enough to not try to do more than they have the means to convincingly accomplish.

During the obligatory explanation scene in Doom, I was quickly disinterested. I kept thinking, 'Okay, enough talk. Let's start blowing things up.'

It's surprising The Rock's latest is as bearable as it is.

When a movie is based on a video game, we expect it to kick butt and take names, and Doom does.

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

Doom ain't Shakespeare. But it's not bad.

Like the sci-fi horror action adventure game upon which it based, Doom is an unapologetically big, loud, raucous adrenaline rush.
