Plot Summary

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

Quotes [From trailer]
Helena Douglas: Don't you think the guy in the second row's cute?
Christie Allen: Is there a guy in the world that you don't have a crush on?
Kasumi: You can have him. But what about the other 300?
[a whole army of men charge at the girls]
Tina Armstrong: [pause] Why don't we just split em' up evenly?
