Cool Movie For What It Is
Verified purchase
Most reviews of this movie were brutally negative when it was released back in 2005. I'll admit that it was very predictable, and its attempted simulations of the DOOM game were laughable at times. Still, taking it for what it is, it's a pretty cool movie to watch when in the mood for it from time to time. No, this isn't Aliens, but it's an interesting alternative.

Regarding the Blu-ray edition, the audio was improved quite a bit from the original DVD. That alone provides a much better cinematic experience when viewing it on a home theater system. Video is improved as well, and is sharp and crisp. Blu-ray version is recommended.

"Doom, Da-Doom Doom Doom"
Verified purchase
Really good watch, will probably watch again, and can recommend.

Look, it's a movie based on a video game about shooting demons from hell. It is far from perfect, it's probably a horrible Doom movie, but apart from that, this is a lot of fun.

It follows most of the zombie rules for infection, but the learning curve is one of the things that keeps the movie interesting as it drip feeds information as the infection gets out of control.

As great as the cast is with this one, it seems pretty clear from the beginning that the big billers, Dwayne Johnson and Karl Urban, are going to go head to head, whether it be against or back to back against monsters.

The monsters are done with great practical effects, they're creepy looking, and competitive with the available technology. They're even used in creative ways.

When it comes down to it, the movie is fun, and a reliably good watch.

Little story Just shooting monsters
Verified purchase
This movie has the thinnest of stories. Dwayne Johnson leads a squad of soldiers to clear a lab and they run into a bunch of monsters. Basically it comes down to how much ammunition they expend and what the beasts are like. It reminds me of the Resident Evil series that is light on plot and all about the action. This is what you get when you try to base a movie off of a video game. In fact they even have the first person, shooter view in one scene as if you were playing the game.

Worth watching
Verified purchase
This movie was pretty good, a lot better than the newer version. I like how it does incorporate what is in the game. Doom is one of my favorite video games to play, I've been playing it since I was a kid and it first came out in the 90's and now I got my son into it the old and new versions of it, and he was the one that found this movie for us to watch. It's not one of the top best movies but it is worth watching if you like this type of stuff.

HD DVD version doesn't work on PC
Verified purchase
Apparently the HD DVD version is an old and abandoned type of DVD. The URL inside the DVD box that recommends getting the latest drivers for it redirects you to a weird twitter page with stuff that looks like a 13 year old setup. No drivers exist that I can find. So 1 star for selling a defunct product type. It wasn't clear to me that this would not work on anything past the early 2000's xbox hardware. :(

Enjoyable Sci-Fi Action/Thriller
Verified purchase
Doom is a surprisingly solid, entertaining film. Somehow I had never watched it before, and it does look like it would be one of those embarrassingly bad video game adaptions, but it's actually a good film, and not even just in a B-movie way. It's not terribly ambitious, but it works well withing itself. Terrific cast (Rock, Karl Urban, Rosumand Pike), decent script, good effects and it's all well put together. Has action, suspense, emotion. Doesn't follow the game straight-up but does pay homage to it in some fun ways. Altogether, it's like a simplified version of Aliens/Resident Evil/The Thing, and one of the better sci-fi action/thriller films I've come across. Great for a couple hours of escapism.

Good movie, not so good DVD.
Verified purchase
I saw this at the theater twice. I enjoyed the movie. BUT, the description "Full Screen" is deceptive. Playing this on my computer, I get a SQUARE picture in the center of the screen, surrounded by Black on ALL FOUR SIDES. It covers about 1/3 of the computer screen. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. My last copy coveted the ENTIRE screen! This copy makes it look like a 13" color TV, except for the Black "Frame". VERY disappointing!

Stick to "Aliens"
Verified purchase
To be completely fair I did manage to get into the first hour of the movie "Doom" (2005) before the wheels fell off and the mish-mash of a script managed to contradict itself once too many times. And any film that includes close-ups of Rosamund Pike ("Pride and Prejudice" - "Die Another Day") more than justifies its existence and the current $.19 price tag for a used DVD.

Pike not only looks good, she is an excellent actress and injects some self-parody into the film, you can almost hear her wondering if her salary was worth having to do scenes with the rest of her talent-challenged ensemble.

There isn't a lot of originality to be found here. Basically it is a big budget money-losing attempt to clone "Aliens" while throwing in a few names and inside jokes from the video game. As in "Deep Rising" (another money losing "Aliens" clone) a squad of mercenaries/Marines/Marines go to a luxury liner/space colony/research station and find that the passengers/ colonists/scientists have been wiped out by undersea/deep space/genetically-altered creatures. They attempt to destroy the creatures but most are killed.

The hero is a maverick outsider played by Treat Williams/Sigourney Weaver/Karl Urban. The main villain is a slimy businessman/corporation representative/kill-crazy NCO; who endangers everyone. Comic relief is provided by wisecracking Kevin O'Connor/Bill Paxton/Richard Blake. The group encounters a female survivor played by Famke Janssen/Carrie Hein/Rosamund Pike.

Unfortunately for "Doom" and "Deep Rising" the producers did not hire the writers from "Aliens". This oversight will have you wondering how they could sink this much money and effort into the making this movie, and put so little thought into writing the screenplay. Too bad really-because while unoriginal, the premise does have a lot of potential. There was simply a failure to execute so that after a promising beginning things bog down completely and it just becomes an exercise in excess; with endless boring battles between mercenaries with pop guns and monsters whose properties allow them to do anything.

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
