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

Originally, it was announced in 1999 that the film would be made and that Arnold Schwarzenegger was cast in the lead role of Doomguy, the protagonist of the video game. Unfortunately, a real life incident involving two teenagers who had played the video game, playing about with a chainsaw, resulted in a tragic accident. Since one of Doomguy's weapons in the video game is a chainsaw, the film with Schwarzenegger in the lead role was dropped at that time. The film was finally brought to the big screen in 2005.

Good Enough
19 February 2007 | by badtz75See all my reviews

As a fan of both Ultraviolet and the Resident Evil Series, this film falls nicely in between. While a bit more plot and less polish than Ultraviolet, Doom entertains but fails to reach the balance of action/plot as found in Resident Evil. Where it does succeed is when it tries to entertain and reference the game (many here) in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, rather than try and elevate the plot to a social commentary.

Sarge (The Rock) is the leader of a Marines unit which is sent to research facility on Mars to investigate missing scientists. They soon realize that the research facility is doing more than an archaeological dig, and that the scientists aren't missing - they're transformed.

The Rock does a fine job of an alpha-male, cocky Marine with swagger. The supporting cast comes off as a "wish we could've gotten Actor A but instead got B". The sfx are good, especially the much anticipated FPS style. Unfortunately, this only lasts a few minutes of the film.

Whether they make a sequel or not, Doom does entertain, and it leaves the ending open for more fun and doom.
