Editorial Reviews

Tina (Pressly), Christie (Valance), Kasumi (Aoki) and Helena (Carter) are four skilled martial artists whose outwardly sexy appearances betray their true, lethal natures. When the fearsome females each receive an invitation to take part in an illegal martial arts competition, the prospect of a ten-million-dollar top prize is only sweetened by the fact that they will be facing off against some of the toughest fighters on the planet. The girls check their inhibitions at the beach and prepare for a series of fights that will test not only their strength, stamina, and endurance, but the very foundation of their dedication to the martial arts as well.

Format: DVD
"D.O.A.: Dead or Alive" as everyone knows is based on the Video game franchise of the same name. This film was released in mid-2006 in Asia before in the U.S. possibly because of the larger market for video game inspired movies. For this reason, I managed to own the region-3 Asian release (image by S. L. Bledsoe in Amazon) even before the movie hit U.S. theaters. Directed by Corey Yuen (Transporter, So Close) an acclaimed Martial arts choreographer, (although Corey's not as renowned as the legendary Yuen Woo-Ping) D.O.A. looks promising. After all, Jet Li quoted Corey Yuen In Black Belt magazine as "..if I need something fresh, I go to Corey Yuen."

A tournament called D.O.A. is being held in a remote Island by a man named Donovan (Eric Roberts). Three beautiful but lethal women are invited to compete. Tina (Jaime Pressley), Kasumi (Devon Aoki), and Christie (Holly Valance). Each of the three female leads have their own motivation and has their own baggage to carry. Once there, they must battle their way up the fighter rankings through a bunch of other seasoned fighters to reach the finals. Once in the final phase, the women uncover a hidden "sinister" secret that is the true reason for the competition. Aided by Helena (hottie Sarah Carter) and Hayabusa (Kane Kosuji), they must either join forces or perish...

Since the movie is based on the video game, expect something with a simple plot with scantily-clad women engaging in fisticuffs and, ahem, volleyball (which is a nice touch, there is a game called "D.O.A. Beach Volleyball"). What can we expect? The game itself is renowned for its hard-hitting fights and titillation factor ("bouncing b--bs" and skimpy outfits) so the film just exploits those factors.

I might be in the minority here, but great martial arts choreography + hot babes + campy storyline = good times to me. This was a must have if you enjoy martial arts flicks, and can find a sense of humor. A lot of people also didn't like Kung Fu Hustle, which I thought was brilliant.

After reading all the 1 star reviews on Netflix, I still watched the trailer. Then I found out the director of the Transporter did this movie too. So....I just had to check it out.

It was fun.
I'm not going to own it, but it was fun and much better than Ultraviolet.

- Fast action.
- Acrobatic martial arts.
- Gorgeous girls all around (so much better looking than the Charlie's Angels trio and they had Sarah Carter who I just loved when I first saw her in the tv show Smallville)
- Eric Roberts as a bad guy on the tv show Heroes and a bad guy here. He's perfect for those types of roles.
- Great sets that get smashed to pieces
- Lots and lots of fighting that is so unrealistic you laugh at the silliness of it, but love it at the same time

If it wasn't for all the scantly clad bodies and sexual themes, this no-blood fight movie would have been rated PG.

Yes, everyone who gets slashed by a sword just falls down with no blood. No effort went into any type of makeup work on the main characters after taking several punches in the face. Oh, well, we like our female leads looking pretty throughout I guess.

It was a movie where you turn your brain off, laugh out loud a couple of times and enjoy the scenery and action. Pure fun, but not an oscar winner by any stretch of the imagination.

You want a quality, thinking person's movie watch The Fountain or Children of Men.
You want a zone out for a bit with the type of movie that isn't another bad effects B-horror film, then get this.

I've read a lot of reviews both good and bad about this movie, but none ever seem to give it the credit it deserves. Yes, it has a single-laced plotline, but being based off a video game of the same nature, that's to be expected. But the fighting sequences were excellent, the one-liner's and side-arm comments were hilarious, and even if you didn't enjoy anything else of the movie, the five main girls who are out-of-this-world gorgeous should have been enough for most [male] viewers to sit back and enjoy. I give this movie five stars because I took it for what it was and knew somewhat of what I was getting into after watching other video game-based movies like "Super Mario Bros.", both "Resident Evil"s, "BloodRayne", and both "Laura Croft: Tomb Raider"s movies. I actually got more than I expected, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

From the director of The Transporter, comes "The best movie adaptation of a video game so far" as said by Matthew Turner from View London. Sci-Fi Movie Page says "It's one martial arts action sequence after the other". Filled with non-stop action, martial arts, and SEXY women, this is a movie about a group of highly skilled fighters of a wide variety of fighting styles coming to an island for a chance to become the world champion. The leader of the group is played by Jaime Pressly(My Name is Earl) who plays a female pro wrestler similar to Trish Stratus(former WWE Women's Champion). Her dad is played by Kevin "Diesel" Nash who looks and dresses like Hulk Hogan in this movie. Her second in command is played by Devon Aoki(Sin City) who plays a female Ninja. However, their host has sinister plans for all of them as they soon find out. Other well known castmembers include Holly Valance, Sarah Carter, Eric Roberts, Natassia Malthe(Skinwalkers, Bloodrayne 2), Matthew Marsden, Steve Howey, Brian White, and Kane Kosugi(the family name is synonymous with Ninjitsu). This is a VERY exciting movie full of action! This film is VERYsimilar to the Mortal Kombat movie series in every way except for one: this film is CLEARLY a guilty pleasure in the "hottie" department. Jaime Pressly is smokin' HOT, as always in this film! Combine Charlie's Angels with Mortal Kombat and you have this movie understood. Enjoy the show!
