5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Action Film, May 20, 2013
This review is from: Doom (Steelbook) (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet) (Blu-ray)
I don't know what all the fuss is about, but I had a great time sneaking into "Doom" during its theatrical release in 2005, and, to this day, enjoy it fairly regularly as part of my action genre movies of choice.

"Doom" is, and will always be, one of my most adored action movie guilty pleasures. It is a great "bad" action film: it's got tons of bullets that fly, as they are wont to do in these types of movies, it's got a great lead male duo--Dwayne Johnson and Karl "Dredd" Urban, two hardened action veterans at this point--it's got plenty of blood and ghastly gore effects, and finally, it's got a superb female co-lead, the absolutely stunning Rosamund Pike.

I'd write more but this isn't the sort of film that lends itself to my writing more about it. It's "Doom"; it's got action and gore and more and more.

What more do you want? "Doom" satisfies on every level it promises to, and while it is not a great film, it is a good one, and that is no small achievement.

5/5

I must say, great review! Unlike the other reviewer, you offer valid points and reasons why this movie is good as entertainment, and as good action. While I am a huge Doom fan, and was hugely disappointed with the Doom movie, I still found it entertaining because it was someone else's vision of that world, where teleporter technology was used by ancient humans. Although, they should remake it to be more like the game, and much darker. If they do, bring back Karl Urban, because he was damn good here! Thank you for your review, Senor Johnson!

I agree, Doom is criminally under-rated. My expectations for this movie were pretty darn low going into it, but it came out of nowhere and was thoroughly enjoyable - against all the odds. I would love to see a sequel some day.
