Dwayne Johnson Throws Shade at Doom Movie

When praising Rampage, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson throws shade at Doom movie and their Twitter respond back!

Hollywood superstar and former WWE megastar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) is having quite a good time as his recent success at box-office with the release of sci-fi monster flick Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures, which is based on a 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games. The movie is solely based on an original story that only borrows the monstrous creatures and few other aspects from the game it is based on.

RELATED: Rampage is Highest-Rated Video Game Movie Ever

Though video game movie adaptations mostly end up being a huge commercial failure as well as a critical disaster beyond redemption, Rampage managed to change that by scoring 53% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes aside from a very steady opening weekend. The rating was set on a basis of 153 reviews on this review aggregation site following the day of its release. So, that means, the film is on a good standpoint in either way and that's actually new to this unique genre.

Seeing his work finally breaking the longest running curse of video game movie being failures, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joyfully posted a Tweet.




While he was being all thankful at Rampage’s recent success, he couldn't help but playfully point out that he also starred in 2005's sci-fi action horror movie adaptation of Doom and how it was a complete disaster all along. This is actually true that director Andrzej Bartkowiak’s Doom movie was so bad and very poorly-written that even the combined star-power of Johnson himself along with actor Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike couldn't save it from sky fall it experienced.

However, Rock calling Doom a “stinker” didn't go well with whoever runs the official Twitter account for Doom who was not so pleased. They got back at Johnson by responding in a minimal but classy way by Tweeting out ‘Dwayne.’ Guess, the film being so bad was already quite painful for them and then he had to drag it back decade after once again was too much for them to bear. Doom is a popular first person shooter game of 1993 and is reworked for a quasi-reboot which came out in 2016 from id Software and Bethesda Softworks.
