Here’s another blog by a Mississauga Chiropactor…


Just watched DOA: Dead or Alive (2006) starting Jaime Pressley(My Name is Earl), Devon Aoki(SinCity), Holly Valance(Neighbours), Sarah Carter(Shark), and Eric Roberts (Julia’s brother)

In this movie, A number of fighters are invited to DOA, an invitational martial arts contest. They travel to the tournament island by plane, until they have to jump out mid-flight with parachutes, and then have until sundown to reach the main island to be entered into the tournament.  Fighters are then pooled against one another in a knock-out style tournament, with the loser of a battle sent home, and the winner progressing to the subsequent round. The plot revolves around four female fighters who begin as rivals, but subsequently find themselves teaming up against another force.

This movie had some great fight scenes and the one-on-one match-ups reminded me of a Street Fighter Video Game.  There were some great cinematic style-shots too, however the storyline was pretty non-existent and the acting was also missing.

Overall 4/10 stars… Happy Viewing!
