DOA: Dead or Alive
Source: Catholic News Service
Mindless but bloodless action movie, based on a video-game series, pitting four bikini-clad young women (Devon Aoki, Jaime Pressly, Holly Valance and Sarah Carter) and others in an "ultimate fighter" tournament where athletes battle not to the death, but to the "knocked-out," while the master of ceremonies (Eric Roberts) has a secret agenda. Hong Kong action-movie director Corey Yuen fills the movie with wire-work stunts in which martial artists take superhuman leaps, and no one really gets hurt except for the bad guy. A few instances of crude language, frequent crass language, a couple instances of mild profanity, brief partial nudity, much skimpy costuming, crude humor, a morning-after bedroom scene and much action violence including explosions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
