By far one of my favorite movies of the 80's. I love the film-noir feel. This movie is actually a remake of the same title I think in the 50's and may have starred Robert Mitchum.
I like to watch this movie and Blow Out as double feature:)

I love a good thriller. This was NOT a good thriller.

I may never be able to unload this movie after I write this review, but I gotta tell you -- I've seen soap operas with better scripts and better acting. The story moves from the improbable to the impossible and then gets worse. Ah well, maybe someone will still want it just to complete their Meg Ryan library. :)

"This film rocks! it has a great story,great acting and a cool tone. Im not a fan of films that tell you how it ends at the start,but this is a sly @ stylish exception.It has fine camera work and direction.quaid and ryan are dynamite."
One of the best videos that I have ever seen!

"D.O.A. has got to be one of the best movies ever created! Not only was it beautifully acted by Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan, but it was so intense that there was never a moment where you would consider turning it off. Quaid plays an English professor that has been given a deadly poison that gives him only 24 hours to live. He decides to spend the rest of his time alive finding his killer. From accusing one of his students (Ryan) to thinking that it was another one of his students lovers, it keeps you wondering the entire time who did it. With plenty of action and romance tied into this cunning adventure, you will never regret giving D.O.A. the chance it deserves in your video collection."
Great suspense!

"DOA is the film that brought together Dennis Quaid & Meg Ryan. Both are superb in this remake and one of the movies that showed Dennis REALLY could act but for some reason he didn't get the acclaim and stardom peers like Mel Gibson & Kevin Costner still enjoy today."
