Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If gaming is about playing, why would a gamer want to watch movies like this?"
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Time Out New York
"Doom plays like a third-generation knock-off."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Just feels like The Rock marking time and paying more dues until the more interesting and challenging offers come his way."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"A bland lifeless piece of science fiction fodder that really doesn't pay homage to the game."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"for a movie based on a video game, it brings what it promises"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"[A] dark, violent, nerve-wracking, trigger-giddy waste of time."
‑ David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Yes, Doom is a bad movie but you already knew that."
‑ Drew Tillman, Village Voice
"The long, long in development film adaptation of the classic video game shooter, Doom is a decent enough action film as long as you don't expect too much out of it."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Roger Ebert put it best, "Doom is like some kid came over and is using your computer and won't let you play.""
‑ Cole Smithey,
"There's no rule that videogame movies have to be idiotic. And there's no rule that action-horror flicks need be dumb."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"... shows less human dimension than the new Wallace and Gromit movie."
‑ Gene Seymour, Newsday
"The performances are awful, the action sequences are impossible to follow, the violence is gratuitous, the lighting is bad and I have my doubts that catering truck was even up to snuff on this project."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Just your basic Aliens rip-off with the name of a formerly popular video game franchise tacked on it."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"A nifty piece of low-ambition entertainment that knows exactly what it is, and delivers fairly well on its promises."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Who knew that a life-and-death struggle in the dark with psychotic hybrids could end up being so bland?"
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
