Reviews aren't too good for the movie Doom, to which I had been looking forward.
arstechnica.com says, "it takes itself way too seriously. We're not here for the plot. C'mon, It's Doom, a game about going to Mars to kill zombies. On top of all this, after a pretty underwhelming showdown, the movie ends very abruptly and I was left sitting there thinking "that's it?" I'm glad I didn't pay to see this!"
empiremovies.com states, "My main problem with Doom is this: the movie spent way too much time trying to explain the scientific implications of the virus, the zombies, the monsters and what not, and not enough time killing things."
joystiq.com reports, "In the end, only three stars out of five were awarded to the space-marine flick, probably due to the “thin character development, cheesy dialogue and lack of story.”
thewashingtonpost reports viewers saying, "It's nothing to write home about, and thank God I didn't have to pay for it."
Ho hum. I'm disappointed in the reviews. But then again, I rarely agree with others in most of my reviews anyway. I haven't dow^H^H^Hgone to see it yet, but will report back what I think when I do.
