Good Enough
As a fan of both Ultraviolet and the Resident Evil Series, this film falls nicely in between. While a bit more plot and less polish than Ultraviolet, Doom entertains but fails to reach the balance of action/plot as found in Resident Evil. Where it does succeed is when it tries to entertain and reference the game (many here) in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, rather than try and elevate the plot to a social commentary.

Sarge (The Rock) is the leader of a Marines unit which is sent to research facility on Mars to investigate missing scientists. They soon realize that the research facility is doing more than an archaeological dig, and that the scientists aren't missing - they're transformed.

The Rock does a fine job of an alpha-male, cocky Marine with swagger. The supporting cast comes off as a "wish we could've gotten Actor A but instead got B". The sfx are good, especially the much anticipated FPS style. Unfortunately, this only lasts a few minutes of the film.

Whether they make a sequel or not, Doom does entertain, and it leaves the ending open for more fun and doom.

Goofs

No Marine would ever refer to a sergeant of any rank as simply "Sarge." This is only done in the Army and the Air Force. However, this could be because it is the Sergeant's "battlefield nickname", considering several other members of the squad are also called by nicknames.


Crazy Credits

In the opening Universal logo, the Earth is replaced with the planet Mars.
