    Methinks this movies won't trouble the movies that have Oscar nomination aspirations. Movies based on games never do. I pass this one up without delving any deeper.

    As long as they stay true to the game without just making a photo-copy of one of the games and keep the writing clever like the games then it will be fine as far as im concerned.

    But thats always been a stretch with game movies.

    I actually thought that movie was alright, but I did not count it as a Doom the Game Movie. I like most movies that Karl Urban play a lead role in because he takes his acting especially in game or comic book movies very seriously. The new Dredd Movie was amazing with him playing Dredd.
