While trying to defend themselves from many vicious attacks, the marines try to stop the monsters from teleporting and infecting Earth. Complicating matters is that the sergeant has orders to help a pretty young scientist download and bring back the information about the serum. Further complicating matters is that the scientist is the estranged sister of the sergeant's best soldier, a man nicknamed Reaper.
DOOM is not only filled with blood, gore and violence, it also contains plenty of gratuitous "f" words and strong profanities taking the Lord's name in vain (see the CONTENT section above for details).
DOOM also takes a swipe at the United States Marine Corps. During the movie, the sergeant, who exemplifies Marine values and even has the Marine motto “Semper Fi” (Always Faithful) tattooed on his back, goes berserk and orders the execution of some humans, including children, who may or may not be infected with the mutation turning people into zombies and monsters.
“Kill them all and let God sort it out,” he commands his men.
When one of the soldiers refuses to carry out the order, the leader shoots him in the head.
It is really sad to see a major Hollywood movie, especially one aimed at the teenagers and young adults who are recruited into our armed forces, include such a vile, anti-American message.
DOOM also carries a Neo-Nazi message, in that the only person who can save the day is someone who is able to be injected with the superman serum and not mutate into a monster.
Not surprisingly, DOOM also mocks Christians. One of the soldiers is a Christian who carves a cross into his arm when he takes the Lord’s name in vain.
Of course, like the video game on which it’s based, DOOM revels in human slaughter. At one point, it plays like the video game and the audience is turned into one of the shooters hilling everything that moves in the most brutal manner imaginable. Obsession with such murderous imagery is the kind of thing that helped instigate some of the school murders a few years ago.
MOVIEGUIDE® doesn’t recommend this vile movie for anyone. In fact, it recommends that parents make special efforts to prevent their children and teenagers from watching DOOM or playing the violent, gory video game.
DOOM is filled with gore and violence, and contains much gratuitous foul language. DOOM also takes a swipe at the United States Marine Corps. Eventually, the Marine commander who most exemplifies the Corps in the movie, who even has "Semper Fi" tattooed across his back, goes berserk and commands his men to kill all humans at the Mars facility. DOOM also carries a Neo-Nazi message, suggesting that only a master race of super beings can win. DOOM also mocks Christians. DOOM is clearly an abhorrent movie.
