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

Yuen's propensity for impossible computer-generated slow-mo combat action wears thin.

DOA might as well stand for "Dead on Arrival."

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

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.

Tão divertido quanto acompanhar, por 90 minutos, duas pessoas jogando videogame sem jamais podermos participar da brincadeira.

Smarmy, lasciviously trashy, butt-kicking bikini-jiggle fest

DOA: Dead or Alive aspires to be nothing more than a sanctuary from thinking.

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.

DOA is a bad, cheesy and cheap production that nevertheless has enough goofy appeal to warrant watching with your buddies...

as eager as anyone with a joystick in his hand, and sets up fights in quick succession, only occasionally taking a breath for a spot of volleyball among the contestants

A film that boys aged 12 to 15 are going to lap up thanks to endless shots of Valance and her curvy co-stars in their swimsuits. But with a plot even flimsier than the bikinis, there's nothing here for the rest of us.

If junior high school boys wrote a cheesecake syndicated TV show and spun it off into a movie, the result would be DOA: Dead or Alive.

The performances are so wooden that things improve when Eric frickin' Roberts turns up with a bad wig.

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.

Not all is bad. In sum, DOA is rarely good but rarely dull. This is in large part because the three leads each have some degree of transcendental charisma.

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.

You know what to expect with Paul WS Anderson onboard as producer.
