* HilariousInHindsight: In one scene, John Grimm says "They're marines, Sam, not poets." In 2009, Creator/KarlUrban, who plays John, was cast as [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Dr. Leonard McCoy]], the TropeNamer and TropeCodifier of ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder, in ''Film/StarTrek''.

* VideoGameMoviesSuck: Despite a solid budget, big-name draw and being violent enough for an R rating, the assessment is that it's either SoBadItsGood for how it craps badass all over the place, start to finish, or a complete fail for having next to nothing to do with any of the ''Doom'' storylines. Its actors are certainly giving it all they've got, and it has that rockin' FPS sequence and music. Creator/RogerEbert's review for the movie provides the quote for this trope's page.

** Dwango5, [[http://www.doomworld.com/10years/bestwads/1995.php according to Doomworld]]. Seventeen DWANGO compilations for a total of over 300 maps, and only the first and, more rarely, seventh maps of dwango5 saw any play.
** ''VideoGame/BrutalDoom'' has been hit extremely hard with this, due to the majority of players never trying anything else and loading everything they play with Brutal Doom (and then being turned off when it inevitably doesn't work). Or worse, being completely unaware of any other mods or their accomplishments.

* HilariousInHindsight: ''Doom'' wouldn't be the only [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls first-person computer game series]] to come out of TheNineties that had [[OurDemonsAreDifferent interdimensional demonic beings]] and various other supernatural aspects in it. Ironically enough, the 2016 reboot was published by Bethesda Softworks, the creators of that other series, and both developers belong to the same company: [=ZeniMax= Media].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Not only were the resources to make this movie wasted on a plot that had nothing to do with the actual game, but even the movie completely fails to take advantage of its Mars setting or give a proper explanation as to ''why'' a Martian retrovirus would change some people into superhumans but others into monsters based on how "good" or "evil" they are.

** The Revenant has become entangled with other skeleton-related memes that circulate the Internet, such as the Agitated Skeleton, the (DOOT) Trumpet Skeleton, and the Spooky Scary Skeletons song.

* VideoGameMoviesSuck: Despite a solid budget, big-name draw and being violent enough for an R rating, the assessment is that it's either SoBadItsGood (considered good for a laugh or two, and it has that cool first-person sequence) or downright horrible (particularly for having next to nothing to do with the actual ''Doom'' storyline).
