Doom: Annihilation is a 2019 science fiction horror movie that is loosely based on the popular video game series Doom. The movie is directed by Tony Giglio and features an ensemble cast that includes Amy Manson, Dominic Mafham, Luke Allen-Gale, Nina Bergman, and James Weber Brown. The plot of Doom: Annihilation follows a group of space marines who are sent on a mission to a research facility on a distant planet where they are attacked by genetically enhanced monsters. The marines quickly realize that the monsters are the result of a dangerous scientific experiment that threatens to destroy the entire human race.

The movie begins with a prologue that sets the stage for the story. We learn that a secret government research facility on Earth has been experimenting with interdimensional travel in order to harness the power of a mysterious substance known as Argent Energy. The experiments go awry, and a portal to Hell is opened, unleashing a wave of demons on the research facility. A lone survivor manages to escape through the portal, but not before he is infected by the demonic energy.

Cut to the distant planet of Draco, where a group of space marines led by Captain Joan Dark (Amy Manson) are sent on a routine mission to investigate a distress call from a research facility. The team includes various stereotypical characters such as the hotheaded soldier, the tech expert, the scientist, and the token minority character. Upon arriving at the facility, the team quickly realizes that something is amiss, and soon they are under attack by monsters that resemble the ones from the prologue.

As the marines fight for survival, they begin to realize that the research facility was conducting experiments with Argent Energy, and that the experiments have somehow led to the creation of the monsters. They also discover that a rogue scientist named Dr. Betruger (Dominic Mafham) is behind the experiments, and that he plans to use the portal to Hell to unleash a demonic invasion on Earth.

The rest of the movie follows the marines as they try to stop Dr. Betruger and his army of monsters from opening the portal to Hell. Along the way, they face various obstacles and challenges, including infighting within the team, the discovery of a traitor in their midst, and the realization that they may not be able to escape the planet alive.

One of the strengths of Doom: Annihilation is its action sequences. The movie features plenty of intense and visceral combat, with the marines utilizing an array of futuristic weapons and gadgets to take down the monsters. The special effects are also impressive, with the monsters looking suitably terrifying and otherworldly.

However, the movie is let down by its weak script and lack of compelling characters. The dialogue is often cliched and predictable, and the characters are underdeveloped and one-dimensional. The acting is also uneven, with some actors delivering decent performances while others come across as wooden and unconvincing.

Overall, Doom: Annihilation is a serviceable action-horror movie that will likely appeal to fans of the video game series. It is not a particularly original or memorable film, but it delivers plenty of thrills and gore for those who are in the mood for some mindless entertainment.

Doom: Annihilation is a 2019 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8.
