It's not going to be good, so everyone should just forget about seeing what they think it should be. It will be a movie, and the name will be DOOM, and it will have The Rock in it - that's about where the decent shit is going to end and the perversion of the original idea will begin.

I have ragged on every game to film conversion in history and have been correct every time.. You will draw fans of the games, but the real fans will always never be totally pleased because they can't deliver what we want.. It just wouldn't be interesting to the audience as a whole.

The fact monsters will be in it, isn't exactly a saving grace.. We all saw what they did to some of the old monsters from the original games when they made DOOM 3... The one thing that would ever make me like this movie is to see a bonafied IMP - as well as some other original monsters.. Not some fucking Aliens knock-off, and not the BS remade models from DOOM3..

If you were to transplant the original DOOM monsters to film, the potential for them to be scary would be far greater than anything produced in DOOM 3 could ever hope to be.

Your probably right :( , never seen a game to movie before that has been any good.

Games just don't make good movie translations. However they might make good translations for T.V.
Take frogger. We get like three drunk frat boys on the side of a busy highway each with a frog in hand, and the first ones frog that crosses the road without getting splated wins a beerbong hit!

Ah, well, I'd still pirate..... err... I mean go to the movie theaters and waste my precious moneys to watch it.....

a trailer came out: http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/doom.html

"The Rock" stars as the main character...

I don't really see how this movie can turn out pretty good.. but they do use the first person view a lot which gives it an interesting touch.

But you should know that movie can't do so much better than a usual gaming world as it hoped to be. :)

Bumping time.

I just came back from waching the movie. Though it was not as deep as it should have been(story wise) the action part remained true to the game. Too bad "The Rock" turned bad :(

Oh, is it already showing?
Damn, I'm really out of date :/

I don't think I've ever seen a movie based on a game that I actually liked...

Here is a question that contains a bit of a spoiler:

What did you think of the "first person mode" after Reaper was injected C24?
