You also need to keep in mind that the primary target for this movie is going to be those "internet nerds". And I really doubt anyone has high expectations for the movie...that would just be dumb.
This is where I think you are wrong.
Movies are not made for niche auidiences at this level.
If that were the case, it would not be THE ROCK as the main character - as he holds zero value for "internet nerds".
The movie was made for the masses.
/edit: Everyone knows what DOOM is. It doesn't take a nerd to understand the movie. Even people who know nothing about gaming have at least heard of DOOM.
Batman... Batman... Can somebody tell me what kind of a world we live in, where a man dressed up as a BAT gets all of my press?
