Cast / crew
A group of the world’s best fighters are invited to participate in DOA, a fight tournament. Kasumi has greater reason to go than most as her brother took part previously and lost his life but she knows he was far too good for that to have happened.
Corey Yuen was a canny choice for this female-oriented action movie as he has directed a number of inventively choreographed and surprisingly emotionally successful action movies starring women in the past. However, this movie has no such investment in character development or story and becomes a series of reasonably nice-looking fight sequences (Holly Valance ended up with the best ones) strung together with a plot that is impressively unsuccessful.
This movie contains mild swear words and strong but stylised and clearly unrealistic violence and sensuality, brief mild nudity.
