I finally got to watch Doom – The movie. And I liked the movie. The movie, surprisingly is pretty good at what it aims for. An emulation of the super hit game Doom. Maybe I liked it cos it was far better than some of the previous “video game” based movies I have watched (Mortal Kombat Annihilation, Final Fantasy)
Refreshingly, this movie is much better. It is an all out action movie full of blood and gore. No real acting required but due to it being fast paced, it kept me hooked.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays the lead actor, Sarge, a CO of a group of Marines who are ordered to investigate a remote research facility, where something has gone wrong. As they move into the go deeper into the investigation, they discover something far more evil, more dangerous than they imagined.
The best part of the movie is towards the end when Karl Urban goes around the facility to kill the evil monsters and it is shown from Urban’s eyes just like how it would be when playing a FPS game.
The CGI in the movie is pretty good and over all, I would give it a 7/10 for a good watch.
