DOA: Dead or Alive
With rare exception, fighting games aren’t known for their stories. Dead or Alive is, probably, more famous for its scantily clad roster, although I have to admit that the game is pretty sound mechanically. So why make a movie out of it? Well, sex sells, I’m told. Regardless, this movie was loathed by critics and general audiences alike. It doesn’t have some of the cheesy appeal of other fighting game-based movies and, despite its best efforts, even the choreography fails to appeal.
