To make matters worse is the fact there is something else on the base with them that wants to kill everything it comes into contact with. Like Most films of this type, it borrows heavily from Aliens (1986) while also making sure audiences who enjoy the game also get what they are expecting. Manson does a great job bringing her A-Action Game for this film as I was constantly reminded of actress Millia Jovovich in the Resident Evil films especially when the creatures reveal themselves.
There are many hokey elements to the film, but they actually add to the overall entertainment of the proceedings especially if you’re a fan of the video game and know what you’re getting into from the start. Writer/director Tony Giglio is obviously a fan of the game and wants audiences to become one soon after watching his film.
The visual FX are really good, and the production design is excellent making for a highly enjoyable film despite the clichés that come with this genre of film and its low expectations. Video game adaptations are not usually films that audiences really lavish much attention to but this version of the game is far superior to the previous and opens the door for future sequels. Doom: Annihilation may not be the best film adapted from a video game but its certainly one of the better ones.
