Overview

Legendary Hong Kong action director and choreographer Corey Yuen brings Tecmo's best-selling video-game franchise to the big screen in a martial arts extravaganza featuring an impressive quartet of female fighters including Devon Aoki, Sarah Carter, Jaime Pressly, and Holly Valance. Tina Pressly, Christie Valance, Kasumi Aoki, and Helena Carter are four skilled martial artists whose outwardly sexy appearances betray their true lethal natures. When the fearsome females each receive an invitation to take part in an illegal martial arts competition to be staged on a remote Asian island, the prospect of a ten-million-dollar top prize is only sweetened by the fact that they will be facing off against some of the toughest fighters on the planet. Now, in order to defend their honor and search for the answers to life's greatest mysteries, Tina, Christie, Kasumi, and Helena will check their inhibitions at the beach and prepare for a series of fights that will test not only their strength, stamina, and endurance, but the very foundation of their dedication to the martial arts as well.

    Fun movie with lots of action, pretty girls, and even a few laughs

    I used to play the video game DOA2 on my Playstation2 so I recognized the title. I ended up buying this title one on a whim. I was expecting something like the Mortal Combat sequels. I have to say unlike the mortal combat movies, I enjoyed this title. Obviously it didn't hurt that the acting cast is full of eye candy, but the fight choreography was entertaining, the special effects good, and the story even had more to it than just show up fight and prove you are the strongest in the world. While I watched the movie I was actually kind of looking forward to see how the plot played out. It's not a movie you're going to watch over and over, but it is fun for the first viewing, and I can even see myself pulling it out sometime for a guy's movie night.
