Doom (2005)

Doom Movie Review:

For what it was, an adaptation of a video game, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Not as good as Tomb Raider, but better than Mortal Kombat. Doom stars the Rock (Dwayne Johnson) as the “Sarge” of a special forces unit sent to Mars to rescue some scientists and bring back the research data they were working on. Although Johnson can’t act, his costar Karl Urban did a great job with what he had for a script and character. Seeing Johnson turn on his mates was enjoyable since you always see him as the hero of his films. But what was the most fun about this film, especially if you played the computer game, was when Urban, after being injected with the “super-human” serum, recovers and the camera angle turns into a first-person shooter video game screen ripped off from the game. It shows Urban shooting the monsters on the way to rescuing his sister.
