    Olduvai Research Station on Mars has been shut down and placed under quarantine, for reasons that are unclear but ominous. No one is allowed in or out except the Rapid Response Tactical Squad, a heavily armed marine special forces unit dispatched to handle the problem. The RRTS are lead by the cool, calm, and collected Sarge, with John \\"Reaper\\" Grimm. serving as his second-in-command. Reaper has a special interest in this mission; his sister, Dr. Samantha Grimm, is one of the research scienti...

    The film stars Dwayne \\"The Rock\\" Johnson as Sarge , Karl Urban as John \\"Reaper\\" Grimm (the film's version of Doom's protagonist) and Rosamund Pike as Samantha Grimm, John's estranged sister, who is a scientist at the UAC facility. Other characters include Portman, Goat, Duke, Destroyer, Mac, and The Kid, who are other marines, and Pinky, another UAC employee.

    The Doom movie was criticized on a number of points by most people who had played or were otherwise familiar with the games. Many objections had to do with the plethora of differences between the film and the games: 1. The origin of the \\"demons\\" is no longer Hell (nor is it implied that Hell itself exists, outside of an off-handed reference to a curse Reaper utters to Sarge near the end of the film: \\"...go to Hell!\\"), but rather from a 24th chromosome. The creatures are all former humans, alt...

    A movie based on the series has been widely expected since the original game's publication in 1993. In 1994 or 1995, id Software sold Doom's movie rights to two studios, reportedly Universal Pictures and Columbia Pictures, but the rights expired (apparently due to a lack of timely production). In 2002, it was reported that Warner Brothers had acquired the rights, which were subsequently lost and then given to Universal Pictures in 2003. Universal moved the film into production in 2004.

No one is allowed in or out except the Rapid Response Tactical Squad, a heavily armed marine special forces unit dispatched to handle the problem. The RRTS are lead by the cool, calm, and collected Sarge, with John "Reaper" Grimm serving as his second-in-command. Reaper has a special interest in this mission; his sister, Dr. Samantha Grimm, is one of the research scientists on Olduvai. The team travels to Mars through a wormhole originally discovered by the Olduvai workers, named the Ark. They are greeted by a technician named Marcus "Pinky" Pinzerowski, who informs them that when emergency alarms were tripped, the Ark was sealed off from the rest of the base, in order to make sure the teleporter was not compromised. Upon entering the quarantined area, the Marines discover members of the science team who have changed into hostile zombie-like monsters. Some of th...

    The Doom movie was criticized on a number of points by most people who had played or were otherwise familiar with the games. Many objections had to do with the plethora of differences between the film and the games: 1. The origin of the "demons" is no longer Hell, but rather genetic experiments. The creatures are allformer humans, although some have mutated into monster shapes. Many fans thought this was a cop-out and turned the film into "just another zombie movie", although the most likely reason would probably due to budget constraints. Some pre-release publicity was quite vague on exactly this issue (see the Ain't It Cool News interviews linked below). 2. Iconic weaponry such as the BFG9000, chaingun, and chainsaw are not used much. The BFG fires only three shots (one of which is off-camera and none of which are depicted impacting creatures), the chaingun fires for about 10 seconds total, and the chainsaw is only used for one scene. A shotgun is only fired three times, and what...

    • Trivia

    John "Reaper" Grimm is the son of UACscientists who were killed in an accident during the early excavation of a Martian dig site. Reaper abandoned his scientific heritage and joined the military to forget about this personal tragedy, eventually becoming a member of the elite Rapid Response Tactical Squad (RRTS). Grimm, his commanding officer Asher Mahonin, and the other members of the RRTS were dispatched to the UAC Olduvai Research Facility to investigate the disappearance of several scientists. Grimm also reunited with his estranged sister Dr. Samantha Grimm, who is a researcher at the facility. Ultimately, he and his squad were pitted in a confrontation against genetically-engineered monsters created by an ancient Martian retrovirus accidentally released by the UAC. Grimm clashed with Mahonin over his commanding officer's increasing aggression that is made worse by the latter's orders to his men to kill any survivors in the facility to prevent the virus from leaving Mars, which G...

    Grimm's personality can be seen as rather angsty, as he is still dealing with his guilt over his parents' deaths and his concern for his sister, Dr. Samantha Grimm, a researcher at the UAC Mars Facility. However, like his computer-game renditions, he has no problem killing multiple demons and even his own commanding officer, Sarge, after the latter begins to murder unarmed civilians in order to contain the outbreak. Notably, at the end of the film, Grimm is injected with the Martian genetic material. Instead of turning into a monster, he instead gains superhuman strength, reflexes, and regenerative abilities. These powers allow him to stride through the infested base singlehandedly mowing down a small horde of demons including many zombies, several imps, a hell knight, and a demon (all seen by the audience in the game's classic first person perspective). This plot device is apparently the film's way of incorporating the berserk powerups in the games (see Berserk pack and Berserker).

    Grimm is the film's equivalent of the Doomguy. The only differences that make him stand out from the protagonists in the games is due to having an actual name and interacting with other characters...
    The movie likely takes place in an alternate universe to the games, however if it was placed in the timeline the events do take place almost a century before the events of Doom 3. However, it is pl...

    Oct 21, 2005 · Although not nearly as stylish and entertaining as Mortal Kombat or Resident Evil, DOOM may not be the mind-blowing spectacle that fans of the video game were hoping for, but at least it knows what it is: a fun ALIENS knock-off. Unlike ALIENS, Doom lacks a strong story and well-developed characters that the audience can cheer for.
