    The action has more to do with digital effects than true martial artistry, and is targeted squarely at adolescent boys too young to rent porn and gamers too lazy to yank their own joysticks.

    So insubstantial that it practically evaporates on screen.
  3. "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.

    A piece of garbage and the best argument for reading books since the first pop-up appeared.

    It's so horrendously silly, shallow and riddled with slow-motion effects FOR EVERY SINGLE FIGHT that you can't help but enjoy it somehow.

    It's certainly not as bad as many might imagine.A fun little flick with good action and decent enough acting.
