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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The cover for this film shows an FN P90 sub-machine gun but this weapon is never seen once in the film, not even in the scene where Sarge and Duke enter the room filled with weapons. Additionally, the FN P90 began production in the year 1990. This would mean that by the time this film takes place in the year 2046, the FN P90 would be 56 years old, likely making them considered quite outdated, if not downright antiquated. See more »

Goofs

When Sarge asks Reaper how much ammo he has left, Reaper replies that he has "half a clip." The correct term is magazine (usually abbreviated to "mag.") Any Marine would know the difference between a clip and magazine. Although this may be the case in reality, the Doom games refer to small quantities of bullets as clips; (e.g. 'picked up a clip') calling it a clip in the movie was probably intentional in order to be more consistent with the game.

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.

One of the greatest movies ever!!!!
11 December 2006 | by punisher6191See all my reviews

OK, I love this movie!!!!!!!!!! yes OK, it doesn't really have that much of a plot. Something is wrong with the research base on Mars, so a team lead by The Rock is sent in to investigate to find out that there are a bunch of crazy killing monsters. But it was a lot of fun. The acting was good, the special effects were excellent, and the action was awesome!!! There is only one problem I had with this movie. It is based on the popular game series "Doom", but they changed the plot a little. Instead of having demons from Hell on the planet, like in the game, it was a biological experiment gone wrong. I think they should have gone with the original plot, but that wasn't enough to knock it down a vote. It was still amazing and the plot did work. If you want to see The Rock killing a tons of monsters with lots of gore and just have fun, definitely see this movie!!!!!
