I (Tim) rented Doom for $1 at the McDonald’s Redbox on Saturday night. When you rent a movie based on a video game, you do not expect Shakespeare. However, I did expect it to be better than it was. Doom is dumb and boring. Most of the movie was spent having underdeveloped characters (Marines) wandering around in the dark with a blond woman giving pseudo-scientific answers to why everyone is turning into an evil monster. The audience of this movie wanted to see one thing: monsters being blown apart by big guns. There was one sequence where they showed the first person shooter perspective and that was super cool. Unfortunately, it was three minutes long and was about the only cool part of the movie. Otherwise, there was hardly any action in this action movie. Do not bother with Doom.
