Dead or Alive Movie – Why?

doa.jpgNick has informed me that the Dead or Alive Movie will be released soon with the cast including, Jamie (my Name is Earl) Pressley, Holly (Neighbours) Valance, Devon (Sin City, 2 Fast 2 Furious) Aoki and Eric (brother of Julia) Roberts among others and Directed by Corey Yuen.

The trailer looks absolutely horrid and I fail to see the point of why we need something that seems to try and emulate the sort of ‘girl power’ and sense of humour that we have already seen in the Charlies Angels movies. How do they get permission to use the licence with what looks to be a bad idea on paper, however I haven’t seen the film (and probably never likely to) but here is the trailer:

I really wish the films that were inspired by computer games, would give the original justice by at least being serious or even better by being completely computer animated. I really have no hope at all for this film if the trailer is anything to go by. What are your thoughts though?
