Something has gone wrong at a remote scientific research station on Mars. All research has ceased. Communication has failed. And the messages that do get through are less than comforting. It's a level 5 quarantine and the only souls allowed in or out are the Rapid Response Tactical Squad - hardened Marines armed to the teeth with enough firepower to neutralize the enemy...or so they think.
I prefer...Zoom.
I hear this movie is horrible.
Honestly, the big problem with this is that, instead of a Doom movie, it felt more like they made a Resident Evil movie with the Doom name attached, especially with the monsters changed into genetic mutants instead of demons from Hell. This movie should've been equal parts Event Horizon, Warhammer 40000, and Aliens: loads of icky hellspawn trying to kill our squad of space marines, who eventually venture into Hell to fuck them up right back.
I've pretty much heard this is aggressively average and one of the less terrible videogame movies. Well, that and them botching it by going mutants over demons, as Kevin said.
The first person shot is amazing for the times though.

Which one? First person POV isn’t exactly revolutionary in the 2000s, so I’m guessing there’s more to it.
