    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    Like most movies based on games, this film appears to have been quite literally doomed from the start. show more

    For a big-screen disposable, Doom has a few jolts, a few good laughs and an attractive female lead to whom you want to say, "What's a nice girl like you doing on a Mars like this?" show more

    Doom is, to its detriment, a remarkably faithful re-creation of the massively popular video game. In other words, it's a dark, violent, nerve-wracking, trigger-giddy waste of time. show more

    Even The Rock, who can usually be counted on to enliven any scenario, seems bored by the laughably feeble script. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Plot, character development and dialogue are so sparse that the screenwriters are fortunate they're not paid by the word. But this basic approach doesn't render it ineffectual. There's so little to go wrong that those who like their entertainment mindless and violent will find little fault. show more

    Doom, the film, aspires to be more than just a gory shoot em' up--though it'd still be a stretch to call it a thinking man's action movie. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Dreary-looking and painfully slow, but it's not terrible. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Basically a deadly dull rehash of "Resident Evil," which in turn was a third-generation clone of "Aliens." show more

    Like Doom itself, the movie is rich in backstory, but sparse in actual story. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    We don't need a discussion of plot in a review of a movie made from a video game, do we? Nor do we care whether the characters are complicated (no), the acting is sophisticated (no), the direction is competent (no) or the camerawork is clever (no). show more
