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.

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.

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.

D.O.A.: Dead or Alive can easily be described as 'Hot chicks kicking ass in string bikinis.' And there's nothing wrong with that.

Unquestionably brain-dead, but also a great example of unpretentious, second-gear celluloid, generated quickly, cheaply -- and for the fun of it.

Praise be to director Corey Yuen for delivering one of the year's purest entertainments -- the best butt-kicking PG-13 bikini jiggle fest since the first Charlie's Angels flick.

D.O.A. is meant to be a high-flying, low-cut, bloody-knuckled diversion, not a Eugene O'Neill adaptation. The picture gets the bone-breaking footage just right.

It's got hot babes in bikinis kung-fu fighting - what more do you want of a movie?
October 17, 2006
The film's pretty much nonstop fighting, mostly in very little clothing, with the flair you expect from a master choreographer like Yuen. It's awesome.
September 23, 2006
Yes, this is a genuinely terrible film. But it's also good fun.

If you're a 15 year old boy, this stands every chance of becoming your favourite film in the entire world. At the very least it's the best movie adaptation of a video game so far.

An ideal vehicle for Yuen, who is a dab hand at filming imaginative hand-to-hand combat sequences.

I do not recommend DOA: Dead or Alive, not even to the most hardcore fan of video games. [Full review in Spanish]
August 7, 2008
Yuen's propensity for impossible computer-generated slow-mo combat action wears thin.

A metaphorical training bra for ogling boys - along with second childhood Dirty Old Aged men - DOA gives new meaning to females hooking up and hanging out, when it comes to airborne upper body intimate wear and its gravity defying plastic contents alike

Let's hope some special form of punishment awaits the man or woman who came up with the idea of basing movies on video games.

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