Doom Annihilation was lame. What a disappointing movie. :/

Recommended Posts

Fun fact: my parents watched that movie without having idea of the game (of course, I told most of the stuff from the game) and they found the movie decent. Even kinda liked some parts of the movie, especially at the end (not counting the cliffhanger).

Just make an over the top action film with pentagrams and demons. I'm sure there's been some fan films that have done this better, and I'mma search for them now.

Can't do that. Because JEEBUS rules in MURRICA.

If I were to make a Doom movie, I'd make the Arch-vile the creature that can turn humans into 'zombies'. Like it can hypnotize you into turning on your fellow soldiers, you could come up with some cool situations with that.

And I'd make it look all freaky with long fingers and huge teeth and it can like hang from the ceiling and stuff. The monster that does the spider mastermind's dirty work and can control all the other monsters.  

Shit, I could make an awesome Doom movie. Somebody give me 150 million dollars

If you want 100% accuracy to the source material, this is the only Doom movie you'll need:

 

 

Given the history of video game movies this one's actually above-average tbh.

Doom Annihilation is lambasted because it's a movie about space marines fighting against demons, but it's not a 3-hour section of 🤘𝔗𝔥𝔢 𝔇𝔬𝔬𝔪 𝔖𝔩𝔞𝔶𝔢𝔯🤘 slaughtering hapless demons in first-person perspective while spouting memes from the Doom comic, which is the only thing that The Internet would have accepted as a good Doom movie.

Haven't watched it yet, don't intend to watch it soon. I almost forgot about it until "Doom Annihilation is a joke, bad...etc" and other cringeworthy review videos started showing up on my recommendations. and no im not hating on the film.

Stop hating on the film just because it's in trend to hate it . It's an okay DVD movie . Good action sequences, decent storyline , lots of easter eggs. Only downsides are some cheesy acting (people not acting accordingly after their squadmates were killed), plastic weapons & stupid BFG and the pre-release Tweet from the main actor (I'm not going to say that here). In rest monster designs are quite good , Hell scene looks great ! 

 

If they would've done a movie where DoomGuy is in there, you all would be mad because he has a voice and an actual character so it's better that way . They did not screw that up (except for that Sargeant who looks fairly similar to Doomguy and got killed) .

 

Oh, and about anyone complaining about VFX it's a low-budged film, these don't count.

i don't know what people expected from direct-to-video movie, tbh. i expected a low-budget "b-style" action, and that's what i got. and i like it. the only thing i'd like to see changed is Danielle Chuchran for Joan (because i like Dani).

At this point, I think the only way to make any good doom movie would be to base it on the First four Doom Novels and the first 2 Doom games.

That is if they don't just give up on making any more doom movies entirely based on how bad the first one was and, comparatively, how much worse the second one was.

Alright so let me channel the spirit of Internet fanboy rage:

Doom Annihilation sucks because it really takes a huge dump on the game, god for a start the stupid and pointless Doomguy who gets eaten by zombies, what a fucking travesty this is, everyone knows the Doomguy has god mode, and there's not a single Mancubus sex scene and they don't collect all the skull keys how dare they call it a doom movie they can't respect the entire point of the series it's obvious it's a lame cash grabs done by talentless hacks with not one ounce of respect for the franchise oh man I'm really angry and I hope all the people who "worked" on this piece of shit die in a car wreck 

 

Ewww, enough of that.

 

FTFY

I knew immediately that the movie was gonna be pure crap when there is no Doomguy in the stinkin movie. Glad I didnt burn my money on that. Honestly I'd rather watch the last Doom movie. I think they should've brought Karl Urban back in. He's kinda got the Doomguy face in my opinion and didnt talk too much which fit the Doomguy protagonist. At least there was a cool FPS scene at the end.

 

Anyways, yep I just knew it was going to suck. Cant trust movie directors to put out anything that isnt set for some political agenda. This is why we cant have good movies anymore unfortunately.

I shut it off at the halfway mark. I wasnt expecting much. I certainly wasnt expecting that.

They actually made a Doom movie sequel called 'Doom Annihilation'? And it sucked? Wow. I guess 22 years is a long enough time to forget what "Mortal Kombat Annihilation" did to the legacy of the actually rather good first "Mortal Kombat" movie.

This movie has no political agenda. It's a basic "shoot the monster" movie. Why do people assume that just because a woman is the lead character that it's a political agenda? I guess we should turn off the first 2 Terminator movies and all the original Alien films. Actually, the Alien films actually had a stronger message in it. It was a movie that sexually assaulted men, in the words of the creators of the film themselves. Also lots of feminist tones in the first film, they're just a little less obvious.

"Anti-SJW's" have become just as annoying as the SJW's. Both groups need to go away.

So I finally got around to watching the film and to be honest it wasn't as bad as I'd anticipated. Granted , It did feel very similar to the first Resident Evil movie in places but there was plenty of fan wank to look out for and it was better than Dwayne Johnson DOOM by a mile.

As for the ending?...... well , we shall see if there's another I guess. They did ok here. I've seen way way worse movies than this.

What we really need is a Doom movie in which we get the reveal that the demons are actually just aliens called the "Alfreds" who are using holograms to prank humans so that they can create sick viral videos on Galactube.

 

If you think it's a good idea, vote for Doom: The Novels: The Movie.

Somehow, they're even worse.

https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Doom_novels

Quote

Over the next month, the two build their spacecraft, but as the oxygen runs low they start to hallucinate, and run out of food. They fly their shuttle into re-entry, managing to survive the trip, eventually landing several miles away from Salt Lake City. A walk of several days leads them into that city, and allows them to learn the truth - humanity is now an endangered species. Salt Lake City is one of the few human resistance strongholds, as it turns out that the Mormons had devised a survival plan and stockpiled years' worth of supplies in preparation for just such an event.

Arlene expresses displeasure over their surroundings, as her brother had converted to Mormonism during his own downward spiral in life. Fly makes things worse when he contacts Marine HQ. As it turns out, the world's governments turned traitor and sided with the invading aliens to spare themselves from destruction, bringing along their military branches. Within hours, armed forces from the Marines, FBI, Army, ATF, and IRS (a "revenue collection" armed branch) attack the city.

The President of the Twelve, leader of the Mormon resistance, is displeased by Fly and Arlene's failure. However, he offers them a chance to make amends by leading a team into Los Angeles to recover vital information, disable the aliens' shields, and fly the information to a Marine resistance center in Hawaii. With them will be Albert Gallatin, an ex-Marine sniper and converted Mormon, and Jill Lovelace, a fourteen-year-old former computer hacker who lost her parents in the invasion.

The book follows their trip west. On the trip, Arlene falls in love with Albert despite his religion. Jumping a train headed west, the team kills a spider mastermind and a cyberdemon and recovers the monsters' human hostage - Ken, a young man with numerous computer implants in his body. Reaching Los Angeles, they find that the chemical brew that turns corpses into zombies is made by stoners and other drug addicts, those allowed to remain alive by the aliens for turning traitor.

Quote

Back on Phobos, the team eventually reaches the Gate, and are sent off to a strange facility where they meet many other aliens, their allies against the demons. The chief representatives, the Klave serve as their liaisons. Few details are gained, but it seems Earth is another stop along a six million year war against the two alien sides. And humans have angered the demons, as humans, it seems, are the only species that actually dies.

It is explained that, for most races, when the body dies, the soul remains behind until a birth gives them a new body. Otherwise, the dead are arranged in theaters and entertained in the meantime. Humans do not work this way, they die.

The plan is simple - fly to the alien invader homeworld- called the "Freds" by Marine HQ, and take the war to their front door. But without faster than light travel, while they will experience the trip in weeks, the actual trip will be twenty years each way. And when an accident leaves Albert unable to go, Arlene marries him - knowing when she meets him again, he will be in his sixties.

To complicate matters, the trip is interfered when a large spaceborne creature attacks their ship. They fight it off, but extensive damage forces them to a nearby planet to another gate. Transporting, the gate malfunctions as Fly accidentally telefrags Hidalgo, forcing Fly to kill him and leaving him and Arlene alone with Sears and Roebuck, their two Klave escorts. And they are trapped on a Fred ship. This leads to Fly experiencing a berserker rage, leading them into battle; with no clothes or weapons due to the Gate transport, they have to fight bare handed, and end up killing the Fred and taking the ship.

Quote

Upon reaching the Fred home world, they find nothing shy of a single Fred corpse. Recovering it and healing it, they question the Fred - a new species which the Fred calls "Newbies" in broken translation they had encountered long ago, that evolves even faster than humans, attacked them. And this new species is headed for Earth.

Unsure if this new species is a threat or an ally, Fly explores and finds one member, dead. An alien gray type creature, they revive it. However, this species evolves at a rapid pace, and tries to disable the ship, fearing what it will find when it meets the rest of its kind as several hundred years had passed since it left its planet. It attempts to get Fly and Arlene to join forces with it, but Fly kills it, not believing a word of it. Following the coordinates from the alien of where the Newbies were headed, a hundred year trip lands them on an unknown desert planet, which they've dubbed "Skinwalker". The trip takes a hundred years outside of the ship.

They find humans. Humanity, as it turned out, survived the Doom Wars. Albert lived and focused on cryogenic research, only to die before it became reality. Jill survived Los Angeles, to become an author and die of old age.

However, these humans are odd. They fear death and take no risks. And they have personality switches. Fly and Arlene, recognized as legendary heroes, are given a computer sphere to answer questions. But Fly needs one question answered to settle his suspicions, capturing the captain, they take him to the medical lab and confirm his fears - the Newbies have evolved into a microscopic entity which lives inside humans.

But humans now have no faith in anything. And Fly determines that faith is harmful to the Newbies, for unknown reasons, but his sermons on faith somehow start to cure people of Newbie infection. And he and his converted lead a battle to take the ship.

 

 

In short, the first Doom movie is a more faithful adaptation of the Doom universe than the Doom novels.

And that stupid argument about "political agenda" was also brought back. Oh boy, someone doesn't understand all art is political and movies have always been political, sci fi movies/shows in particular dealing with those topics heavily (see Star Wars, Star Trek, and so on for examples).

 

But ok, it's "political agenda" only when something one does not particularly adhere to or like is put on the display.
