Trivia

Private Li Chen's name comes from Lorelei Chen, a planned character for the original Doom game. Variations of her and the other planned characters were later used in Rise of the Triad by 3D Realms. See more »

Goofs

Private Steven is visibly shocked for some reason when Joan tells him that the zombies were formerly human. This should have been obvious to him from the very beginning since they're wearing human clothing and have name tags belonging to the missing scientists. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Malcolm Betruger: I was reborn, Joan. What I thought was punishment, turned out to be my salvation. He gave me a purpose. He showed me the way and he'll do the same for all mankind.

Cheap, Flat, Ridden With Clichés & Disrespectful of the Source Material
1 October 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

I think we all knew this was going to proper bad - low budget, cheap actors, mediocre director & no involvement from the authors of the original concept and all the games. Bad it was.

The very start states quickly what kind of thing will follow, the first shot is full of grade b cgi and even the opening titles were zero-budget style. We get introduced to a bunch of painfully clicheic characters (carried out by stiff acting) and plotline, surrounded by plasticky looking props and sets, effortless cinematography, boring color grading and so on and so forth. The special FX is mix of cheap cgi and practical fx that don't impress much. References to the contents of the games are there, a few, but to no satisfaction. So it continues for 90 minutes, from time to time entertaining us with emotionless and uninspiring action sequences. Oh, and the original score can be described the same way. There is some amount of much needed gore, but not creative enough or just simply not enough of it to compensate for anything. As the movie passes by, You find yourself predicting events and not caring for any of the characters - most you're going to feel is cringe or anger, if you're a "Doom" game franchise fan. You're also going to be very bored.

I loved "Doom 3", have played it through for three times & if there's anything good "Doom: Annihilation" did is inspiring me to play one of the games again. I'm recommending a hard pass on this absolutely lame and disappointing game adaptation. My rating: 2/10.
