D.O.A.: Dead or Alive

Corey Yuen, a martial arts star in his own right, had a major hit with THE TRANSPORTER which might explain how he was able to bankroll this ludicrous bit of fluffy nonsense. Think CHARLIE'S ANGELS as a video game adapted into a film like MORTAL COMBAT only the stakes are money and bragging rights instead of the fate of humanity, the universe or what have you and then you'll have a good idea of what D.O.A. is all about. Grant it, it's a gas to see MY NAME IS EARLE's Jaime Pressly kick some ass and I certainly have no problem whatsoever watching Devon Akoi, Sarah Carter, Holly Valance and Natassia Malthe jump around and once more we have Eric Roberts playing a scum lord and Big Sexy Kevin Nash even shows up in the role of Pressly's dad and Matthew Marsden from that odd British show CORRONATION STREET is there to provide a bit of eye candy for the ladies as well. Pure nonsense indeed but it sure is fun!
