Listen to Episode 144 of the Podcast here while you enjoy the show notes.
SUMMARY - In Do or Die, federal secret agents Donna (played by Dona Speir) and Nicole (played by Roberta Vasquez) are confronted by a Japanese crime boss nicknamed Kane (played by Pat Morita). Kane tells the duo that they are now part of a game where the only objective is to survive attacks from six different teams of hired assassins.
Screenplay by Andy Sidaris; Directed by Andy Sidaris; and released on June 28,1991.
The movie gets started really quickly with our leads being taken by our villain and told they are part of some killing game but that's basically all we know
What follows is a lot of chase scenes
And a lot of explosions
with some cheesy computer graphics in between
And tons of unprompted sex scenes
and more explosions
and a fun original song
and basically no real plot or characters or whatever. Just enjoy the ride
The director is listed on IMDB as the apron wearing owner of this bar. This is all we could find in the scenes and we don't think this is Sidaris

Would you watch it again? - Our only other experience with Andy Sidaris so far has been Hard Ticket to Hawaii which is better. This was a fun time and it made us laugh, but we'd rather try out others in the series because this felt a bit weaker than others might be. However, this would be fun to watch with a crowd at a midnight movie screening
