King of Fighters flick

Although the movie based on the fighting videogame DOA: DEAD OR ALIVE still sits in a vault awaiting escape/release, another similar project is battling its way to theaters. A live-action flick based on the KING OF FIGHTERS series is preparing to smack flesh courtesy of Hong Kong action director Gordon Chan, perhaps best known for the Jet Li chopsockey gem FIST OF LEGEND.

I don't think I've actually played KING OF FIGHTERS, but I'm sure it involves a gathering of diverse martial artists (including this popular buxom babe Mai Shiranui, and probably a bunch of dudes with tall hair and/or dubious fashion) as they attend some tournament that requires pounding each other into unrecognizable shapes. Whoo-pah!

The script comes from Chris Chow, who penned Jet Li's FEARLESS. I'm sensing a Jet Li connection here... maybe this one's got some potential?
Extra Tidbit: Mai Shiranui battles her foes using ninjitsu, lethal fans, and large bouncing breasts.

Yup, DOA is out on DVD for a while now outside the US and its not as bad as I thought it would be, its kinda fun. As for KOF we all know how videogame to big-screen adaptations go. I hope they don't follow the Street Fighter formula.

DOA is out in other countries and you can buy it on dvd on ebay and other places. I own it on DVD and its not as bad as everyone thinks. Picture Charlies Angels but better and with hotter women. Its a good video game flick. If you do see it, Dont take it to seriously and its a fun flick. A lot of great fighting and action. Its supposidly coming out in the US. on june 22nd. As far as king of fighters go, This movie would kick ass if they make it right and not make it shitty like the god awful
