World's best fighters are invited to DOA, an invitational martial arts contest. There, four female rival fighters will have to work together to uncover the secret that the organizer of the tournament is trying to hide. (The movie adaptation of the best selling video game series Dead or Alive.)
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
(at around 21 mins) From the scoreboard it can be seen that there are 16 fighters, Bass, Bayman, Brad Wong, Christie, Eliot, Gen Fu, Hayabusa, Helena, Hitomi, Jann Lee, Kasumi, Leifang, Leon, Max, Tina and Zack. The match-ups for the first round are Bass vs. Tina (shown), Bayman vs. Brad Wong (shown), Christie vs. Jann Lee (shown), Gen Fu vs. Leifang (shown), Kasumi vs. Leon (shown), Hayabusa vs. Eliot (shown) and Zack vs. Max (Max says this to Christie). This leaves only Helena and Hitomi as remaining fighters yet Helena is clearly shown winning against an (unnamed) male fighter. See more »
Princess Kasumi, your brother is dead. Your destiny is to lead your people.
I will not believe he is dead, until I see his body.
There is no body.
Then he is not dead.

This film ain't pushing the girl power formula it's just a group of fighters whose main protagonists are mostly women. DOA is quite good and i might think to see it again, I like everybody in the film my comment is that they have to trim down the comic elements i think it was too much especially Christie's partner he's quite annoying.
I expected it to be a charlie's angels film but it's not. DOA is one of those films you'd like to see if you are into popcorn films, and the fight choreography is worth the price of the ticket they actually applied the moves of the characters on the video game. It makes me wanna play the video game when after seeing it!
