DOA: Dead or Alive (2006)
on Monday, May 7, 2012
DOA: Dead or Alive (based on the video game of the same name) is a film with a risky concept: Gather four hot women (Holly Valance, Devon Aoki, Sarah Carter, Jaime Pressly), put them in as little clothes as possible, and have them fight each other! Luckily for Cecil, the concept works, making for one of the best video game adaptations ever. Prepare yourself for fantastic fight choreography (from the legendary Corey Yuen), wire-fu-a-plenty, Eric Roberts in sunglasses, the kid from Revenge of the Ninja all grown up, and did we mention hot women fighting?

Mortal Kombaaaaaaat! Cecil reviews one of the best examples of how to do a video game movie the right way.The Specialist (1994)
“For some reason, this film was marketed as a more ‘serious’ movie, even though I’m pretty certain anybody who’s a fan of either Sylvester Stallone or Sharon Stone doesn’t go to the movies for serious dramatics. Stallone’s fans go to see him kill a lot of things and be macho, and Stone’s fans go in the vain hope she’ll do another leg spreading scene like in Basic Instinct. To be fair, she does get naked in this film. On the downside, so does Sly.”Baywatch “Mirror, Mirror”
“Okay, this episode is already turning into bad fanfic written by a bored housewife in love with David Hasselhoff.”Street Fighter (1994)
Cecil kicks off 2013 with another video game adaptation! This time, it's the Jean-Claude Van Damme classic Street Fighter, also starring Ming-Na Wen as Chun-Li, Kylie Minogue as Cammy, and Raul Julia as M. Bison in one of his final roles. The Expendables (2010)
