Well for all you fans of doom series a film has been made about doom 3. The film is based on Doom 3. Hopefully tho because it's staring rock they keep it to a minimum because there wern't any mega high exsplosions in the game and I bet they found every way possible to make the movie turn people off doom. I just hope really hope they kept everything to a minimum... for rock standards.
It's coming out August 5 or around there.
Films with the Rock starring, in generall, have little substance IMO.
For example Scorpion King was all about the special effects and cool fight scenes. The plot line was weak and rather dull.
Oh no I must go here and save [insert name]. *Fight bad guys on way*
Save [Insert name]
Big fight scene with big bad.
Almost lose, but win in the end.
Anyway. Doom has lots of nasty monsters, should be fun to see them on the screen.
Lets hop the logiv of movie into game is bad and game into movie is good prevails here.

It also stars the dude from lord of the rings that became king in lotr 3. so it shouldn't be that bad.

from an article I read and from universal pictures.com
I can always enjoy another bloodshed movie, Especially when it's about my favorite shooter!
While I agree that the it's more likely that I grow an arm out of my forehead than the Rock winning an oscar for ANY movie he does (now and forever); I do believe that when it come to action flicks he can hold his own with the best of them.
The role here is some random marine that fights the forces of hell, it shouldn't be too much of a stretch for any action oriented actor.
If you had the chance to cast the marines role, whom else fits the bill?
I could see Will Smith, Bruce Willis or Hugh Jackman doing competent enough jobs here. But the kind of money that a Smith or a Willis command just to be in a film probably priced them right out of consideration.
Regardless, the star (and the die) is cast and it is a wait see game until the movie comes out.
I will keep my fingers crossed.
Unfortunately, this movie is not shaping up to be very good. First of all they rushed it's production, which started very recently (around December or so). Also, although they are maintaining the look of the monsters, locales, etc., the movie is not about monsters invading from hell, and it doesn't even take place on Mars.
The official story right now is that it is a "loose" translation of Doom and involves an unnamed planet and a group of Marines stationed on that planet fighting the other inhabitants of it who have been transformed into monsters by some sort of horrible plague. Again with the plague....I'm tired of Hollywood ripping up the core material. They don't have to honour it exactly, but changing the things they did make it very "un-Doom". Will I still see it? Of course, but I'll most likely wait till video release.
Oh, and the LOTR actor it also stars is the actor who played Eomer and Vaako in "Chronicles of Riddick" (really liked that movie). There were conflicting reports that the Eomer guy was the lead marine and The Rock was the Sgt., but now it seems that their roles have changed. The Rock is the only "pro" wrestler I've ever respected, and at least, even though they're mucking with the material a lot, it should be a fun, gory, action-packed popcorn flick.
viggio mortenson and the rock, i cant wait to see what a mess they make of this loose film about doom
