What can I say, just like man, I like to look and admire beautiful woman. So here I am, in the cinema surrounded by drooling guys. All bringing big packs of tissue to wipe their saliva. Some busy drinking sprite that never seems to finish. Some guys can even shut their mouth up and kept on “wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh”. But well, how can I complain when the girls all have nice body.
I heard about DOA for some time but never actually play the game before. Thus.. the main reason of seeing this movie… Obviously is because of the not very pretty yet somehow have the charm to lure me to cinema… who else but Devon Aoki. Seriously, I have never missed any movie she stars in
Warning: If you are not in for the girls. Please don’t hassle yourself to even walk in to the cinema. The storyline is weak, actions were not that impactful. Yes, I repeat.. go only if you want to see sexy chicks!
The movie opening was dramatic enough to roughly introduce and create some background character for everyone. The first in line is Kasumi (Devon Aoki) who supposedly is a Ninja Princess. She lives in this sacred temple where she is not allowed to leave. Once leave, she will lead a life as a commoner and will be killed. But she is set to leave the ninja village to seak for his brother. She was invited to the DOA as soon as she manages to leave the ninja village.
Tina Armstrong (Jamie Pressly) is a professional wrestler. She is sorta bored of living in a fake world and wants more real fun. She was selected to join the DOA when she was seen fighting with some pirates when she was out cruising.
Christie Allen (Holly Valance) is a master thief. She is said to be the best in the job. She was recruited to fight in DOA when she is seen fighting with the police while in hong kong. Rather fake but guys would drool to see how she put on her G-string before fight and slip her bra in. Apperently she was being set up by Max (Matthew Marsden) in order to get her invited to DOA.
Ayante (Matassia Malthe) is a slave in the ninja village and is sent to kill Kasumi if she refuse to return to her people. She apperently is Kasumi’s brother, Hayate (Collin Chou) lover.
Helena (Sarah Carter) is the daughter of Douglas which is the creator of the DOA. She just reach the age of 21 and will compete in DOA for the first time.
The selected people were being brought to a secret place where they all will fight to determine who is the best. The winner will get 10 million as a prize. The fights happen at anytime and any moment. Unknown to them, Donovan (Eric Roberts) is up to something. He killed Douglas because they don’t see eye to eye on DOA’s potential.
Donovan wants to use the data’s and strength of the contestant and sell it in the black market. How he do so? Before the contest starts, he puts some ermm sorta like tacking bugs in to the contestants body. So by the end of the day, he sorta like “harvest” them and collect it in a cool looking shades.
With that shade, he could know the moves of it’s opponents and defeat them easily. Yes, and to test the product, he save the best for last. Kasumi’s brother, Hayate.. that was rumoured to be dead was sent out. Apperently he is not dead. He is just being kept away as he is the best fighter.
Fights and more fights… obviously and old man is no fight for 5 beautiful and sexy woman. So yeah, everyone practically knows what happens.
Well, there are always things I could never understand about this movie. Which well, lets hope someone who played the game or understand the movie could answer me.
1. How did the DOA know Kasumi will leave the village and sent her the invitation just as she stepped out. If she is never gonna leave then she won’t get invited?
2. If only invited people get to go to the DOA, how come Ayane manage to sneak in and do the like assasination mission going?
3. Why doesn’t Weatherby tell and just destroy the program from Day 1 of DOA before everyone of them fights?
Ah…. too many questions to ask…. the plot is just too weak and according to some of my friends who play the game, the movie is far from the original. Not to mention even the occupations were so different. Christie is said to supposedly an assasin but was a master thief in the movie. And all 5 girls actually isn’t that close to each other.
But well, movies will always be movies. So just sit back and enjoy the girls!
