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?"

By hewing close to James Cameron's "Aliens" playbook, Doom manages to escape the game-to-movie curse that afflicted "Resident Evil," "House of the Dead," and, well, every other movie based on a game.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Philadelphia Inquirer

By David Hiltbrand
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.
