Dwayne Johnson admits Doom was a bad movie

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has conceded his 2005 film Doom lacked charm and was "incredibly unsuccessful".

He starred alongside New Zealand actor Karl Urban in the movie, which was adapted from the cult first-person shooter game of the same name.

Johnson agreed during a recent interview that most movies based on games are bad - including his one.

"I lived the video game curse because I made Doom," he told Total Film.

"Doom was a movie based off a very popular video game and was incredibly unsuccessful. So I lived the curse, and I experienced it."

Johnson is about to release a new video game adaptation, Rampage - and he reckons they got this one right.

"Also making sure that there was a winking charm and humour in Rampage that, for me personally, was not in Doom," he told Total Film.

Doom has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of just 19 percent, indicating four out of every five reviews was predominantly negative.

Other much-maligned video game adaptations include Alone in the Dark (2005), Super Mario Bros (1993), Street Fighter (1994), Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009), Assassin's Creed (2016), Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997), Warcraft (2016), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) and Double Dragon (1994).

Rampage is released in New Zealand cinemas tomorrow.
