An entertaining action flick - especially for blokes

Some great fight sequences - many of which took more than a week to film. Excellent stunts. Gorgeous costumes and scenery. A Cock rock soundtrack. What is not to love about DOA? Based on the popular Dead Or Alive video game series (last seen as DOA 4 on the XBox 360) this movie is a lot better than the previous attempts like Street Fighter. Many of the on screen stars resemble their in-game persona's in an uncannily realistic way too.

The girls are all gorgeous yet could really kick your butt. The strenuous training they need to "seem real" never seems to show too much. The beach volleyball scene is an added bonus for fans of the series. No wobbly boobs from what I could tell although they were always exaggerated were they not? Great Saturday arvo entertainment for blokes - but girls check it out as you can really kick arse with the best of them.

It's even worse than what i expected..

World's best fighters are invited to DOA, an invitational martial arts contest. There, four female rival fighters will have to work together to uncover the secret that the organizer of the tournament is trying to hide. (The movie adaptation of the best selling video game series Dead or Alive.) A film where a simple kick in the face turns into a shotgun sound and Eric Roberts uses sunglasses to steal people's powers but also has some of the worst, dumbest and cheesy moments like a lesbian joke and a forced love story that goes nowhere. (0/10)

Exploitative mindless nonsense – but well-made and fun.

This is better than other computer beat-em-up adaptations like Streetfighter and Mortal Kombat. The plot makes more sense and is more interesting than either of those movies, while managing to stay closer to the original games. Essentially this is 'Enter the Dragon' with (lots of) women, though it lacks the dark and dangerous edge of that earlier movie. As ever, Cory Yuen does a good job with the many fight scenes, despite working mostly with non-martial-artists. The production has an expensive feel, and it's surprising that the budget didn't run to more impressive stars.

The main attraction here is the procession of gorgeous super-feisty women, often wearing very little – pure exploitation, but this too is faithful to the original computer games, right down to the beach volleyball. Sadly, while looking good, these are not great actresses. Jaime Pressley is pick of the bunch – while not big enough physically for Tina Armstrong, she brings a personality which fills the screen. Devon Aoki never brings much personality to anything, but this may well be her best performance after DEBS. Holly Valance, sadly, is barely an actress at all and the male support is pretty drab, with Steve Howey as a stereotyped nerd the pick of a bad bunch. Anyone who knows who Kevin Nash is should get a laugh from his performance as Bass. It's disappointing that, after the female leads have been built up well early on, they then spend too much time sidelined, while various dull and characterless men fight one another.

Fans of the games may enjoy this. Anyone who enjoys watching half-dressed women fighting will too. For others it's good mindless fun, but don't go out of your way.
