Doom Review


Doom is one of the better actioon movies out this year. While I wouldn't categorize it as must-see, it was entertaining, both for the action and the humour laced throughout. It also promised gore and there is plenty of it.

The basic plot is the same as the FTS game of the same name.This time though, a team ofMarines is sent to investigate why a research facilty has shut down and stopped communicating with the corporation that runs it. They are teleported to Mars and sent through an airlock with a mission to bring back the data and rescue any survivors, while eliminating any threats.

The movie starts out slow and really doesn't get going until about 30 minutes in. Slowly they unravel what happened, as one by one, the Marines are stalked and killed by wahtever killed the scientists. Karl Urban does an admirable job of playing John Grimm and the Rock does very well as the nearly psychotic Sarge.

I went in with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Basically, if you are looking for a movie with action, gore and some humour, you'll like this movie, but if you are looking for an Oscar, go see North Country instead.
