Storyline

Something has gone wrong at a remote scientific research station on Mars. All research has ceased. Communication has failed. And the messages that do get through are less than comforting. It's a level 5 quarantine and the only souls allowed in or out are the Rapid Response Tactical Squad - hardened Marines armed to the teeth with enough firepower to neutralize the enemy...or so they think.

Trivia

The character Goat's seemingly malevolent personality is a hint to the animal of the same name's involvement and connection with modern Satanism, which is a nod to the original Doom video game series, which involved hell-demons rather than aliens. See more »

Goofs

None of the military characters are wearing helmets and only one has a hat on of any kind. They also don't have safety eyewear on despite using weapons which throw shell casings when fired. Although this quite common in modern films due to the desire to show the actor's faces as well as to prevent reflections from lights and cameras., it is always incorrect. Helmets prevent head injuries from shrapnel and the occasional ricocheting bullet. The eyewear would protect the shooter's eyes, especially when firing indoors. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Samantha Grimm: [narrating] In the year 2026 archaeologists working in the Nevada desert discovered a portal to an ancient city on Mars. They call this portal the Ark. Twenty years later, we're still struggling to understand why it was built and what happened to the civilization that built it.

Expected a lot worse!
12 November 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I must say I expected a lot worse, given all the very indecent films being made inspired by computer games, and especially this one, cause it is a game I played to death - pardon the pun - 10 years ago.

I was entertained, and I didn't crumble my toes as much as I usually do.

I usually dislike The Rock, cause I usually see him as a boneheaded wrestler with no acting potential what-so-ever, but in this film I must say he works out fantastically. Granted, it doesn't take a DeNiro to play the part, but he does it well and very convincingly. Cudos for that, I am even thinking about checking some of his new films out as well not.

Of course, I have to find something that annoyed me, and it was called "Rosamund Pike"....my god, how can an actress this boring and express less ever get a part in a film? I grabbed myself several times wondering this question. He seriously stinks.

But - to be honest, I think she was the only downer in this film. I didn't expect Oscar material and obviously that's not what I got either, but I got a lot of action and enjoyed all of it, especially the game-inspired shoot'em down/up scene, quite awesome carried out.

Cudos to everything...apart from Rosamund Pike 7/10
