View Full Version : Doom - The Movie.

Did anyone see this and then become horribley disappointed by it?

It may have been a "good" movie, but it shouldn't have been called "Doom."

It may have been on Mars, in a UAC facillity, but it still didn't earn the right to be called "Doom."

First thing that I noticed, the scientists that were "infected" weren't bald and still had thier eyes.

Isn't it possession and not infection? The baldness and eye **** may be from decomposition :O.

It was a thing with the "possession." I think they were gouged out ;) And the hair.. I don't know, lol.

Another thing that I noticed, no one had PDA's, and nothing looked similar at all. The entire story was different.

PDA's are only from Doom 3. In fact, you may be comparing this to Doom 3 too much. I would have loved a movie with a storyline carbon copied from Doom 1.

Well, even Doom 1 had nothing to do with "mutation."

hese topics have been severely criticized by most who have played the Doom games or know about the Doom games. These are believed to contribute to the film's box-office failure and ire of fans:

* The origin of the "demons" is no longer Hell (nor is it implied that Hell itself exists), but rather genetic experiments. Many fans thought this was a cop-out and turned the film into "just another zombie movie".
* The idea of whether a test subject becomes a monster or evolves to a superhuman being like Grimm depending on whether he or she is genetically good or evil has been criticized as ludicrous.
* Iconic weaponry such as the BFG, chaingun and the chainsaw are not used much. The BFG fires only 3 shots (one of which is off camera), the chaingun fires for about 10 seconds in the movie, and the chainsaw is only used for one scene. A shotgun and what appears to be a plasma rifle appear, but are never fired. Also, the explosion of a BFG round appeared more like a giant ball of corrosive mucus, rather than a massive green explosion as in the games.
* The monsters themselves were inaccurate and/or sparse-it was expected the zombies would be carrying guns, the Imps and Hell Knights to throw balls of energy, and that the other monsters in the game would have appeared.
* The first-person sequence is only 5 minutes long, despite the original prediction of 3/4 of the movie being first-person.
* Failure to capture the tense, scary, and foreboding atmosphere of the game Doom 3, from which the movie is supposedly based on. Also of the run-and-gun action of the first game.

I agree with these.

I agree with those as well.

I haven't beaten Doom 3 yet, but I just found out that Dr. Betrouger (sp) was the "devil origin" of all that was happening.

That movie ****ing sucks. I almost fell asleep TWICE when watching it. I think there has been made thousands of movies just like that, it's like a ****ing rip off.
Oh yeah, and the ending scenes where it turns into gamemode, is so lame it is embarrassing.

Lol, totally agree with that as well.

I think The Rock ruined the entire movie. He's just about the worst actor I've ever seen.

"Shoulder your ****ING weapon, soldier. ****!Q1!1!"
