The film, “DOA: Dead or Alive” was an action film reminiscent of the “Mortal Kombat” games from the nineties. With a variety of characters, each present at the competition for a different reason, and McG-style directing, the film moves along quickly and is action-packed from the word go. The action sequences were very interesting, varied, and often-featured swords or no weapons at all.
The film was not approved for a few reasons. The first reason the film was not approved was because of the sheer amount of violence. There was so much that it was impossible to number individual instances, however none of it was bloody and, despite the title of the film, only two people lost their lives. As is too often the case with these types of films, the other reason the film is not approved is because of the amount of nudity. It seemed as though all the men were often shirtless and the women were usually clad in very skimpy bikinis. In addition, there was full nudity shown with both sexes, even though offending body parts were covered.
