Doom : Could Have Been A Lot Worse

Saw Doom last night with my brother-in-law. There are positives and negatives, though I guess the title described my main feeling about the movie.

The Negatives: Quite a bit of foul language. The acting was not always superb, but wasn’t all that bad. Given the game it came from, you would have expected more shooting and exploding monsters.

The Positives: There was a decent bit of action, which made for a good action flick. The special effects were good. They did a good job of keeping it dark and creepy the whole movie and there were a number of times that I noticed that I was pretty intensely waiting for the next monster to pop out. The plot and explanation for how the monsters got there was a little far-fetched, but wasn’t too bad.

All in all, if you don’t mind the language, like action movies, and can turn off your brain just to have a little fun, you might just enjoy it.
