From "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" to "Super Mario Bros.," I've seen enough video game-to-movie conversions to know just how painful they can be to with.

Now comes "Doom," a new movie based on a game where the whole point is dishing out as much pain as possible to endless waves of monsters.

Let's dispense with the obvious: In both the movie and the game, the stories are weak and character development just gets in the way of the carnage.

Though I squirmed more at the one-liner bombs dropped by Sarge (The Rock) than the buckets of spattered blood, I still have to give it some credit: the movie is nowhere near as bad as it could have been.

i like the first-person element. that's probably why i was disappointed with the street fighter movie; no health bars or sideview!
