It's all about as thrilling as watching the countryside whiz by in the car.

There is enough masturbation fodder here to keep many 11-year-old kids who have yet to find daddy's porn stash very happy.

If you only ever see one bad movie about warrior chicks who meet on a tropical isle for a fight contest, make it DOA: Dead or Alive.

Quantcast The plot is but an excuse for a series of elaborately choreographed fight sequences featuring a combination of digital and wire work that somehow manages to feel completely fake despite the obvious physical exertions of its well-trained cast.

There was a time when movies like DOA: Dead or Alive lurked sheepishly at schoolboy height on video store shelves, spines straining to accommodate the charms of their actresses.

Charlie's Angels, Survivor, American Gladiators and Girls Gone Wild are just some of the bad influences on Hong Kong action director Corey Yuen's laughably silly adaptation of the video game DOA: Dead or Alive.

Charlie's Angels 3 it ain't, but big up to director Corey Yuen for crafting a splashy and appropriately trashy fighting flick that chicks can cheer for.

While the teen target audience may be convinced that this is exciting, the rest of us will leave the theater exhausted and with brain cells thoroughly fried.

Corey Yuen and his writers have adapted their dubiously titled DOA: Dead or Alive from the video game series of the same name -- apparently convinced that the scraps of backstory originally scribbled by the gamers were plenty.

Call it the Guilty Pleasure of the year for me. Hell, it's a heck of a lot more entertaining than Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

If Corey Yuen believed in truth in advertising, ala Snakes on a Plane, this flick would have a name like Jiggly Babes Kick Butt. The stuff that post-pubescent dreams are made of.
