Storyline

A number of fighters are invited to DOA, an invitational martial arts contest. They travel to the tournament island by plane, until they have to jump out mid-flight with parachutes, and then have until sundown to reach the main island to be entered into the tournament. Fighters are then pooled against one another in a knock-out style tournament, with the loser of a battle sent home, and the winner progressing to the subsequent round. The plot revolves around four female fighters who begin as rivals, but subsequently find themselves teaming up against another force. Written by Wikipedia

Interesting movie with excellent fight sequences
16 September 2007 | by dustinhunter707See all my reviews

I was expecting some good fun from this movie because its directed by Cory Yuen, who also did the fight choreography on Transporter 2 which was just amazing. Anyways this was a good solid PG-13 action film with nonstop fighting and I liked it, I mean I have seen better, but I have seen much worse also. Jaime Pressly is great in this movie along with Eric Roberts and Devon Aoki. Great cast and great fights makes this out to be a pretty good movie, plus hot babes that can fight just never gets old in the action genre to me. Overall I gave this movie a 7 out of 10 because I thought it was good and entertaining but it could have been a little better if it had been rated R or if the fights were extended a little more.

7 out of 10, recommended for fight fans and action junkies like myself.
