It's Japanese...

Yes, it's quite good. :) I've had the DVD for a few years.
I really like the concept!

But unfortunately, the sequel sucks... The story is rubbish and has absolutely no logic.

Ooh yeah, this is quite a film! Lucky to have caught it on tv a couple weeks ago. Always a treat to be provoked into thought as this film does. Glad there are others who also appreciate it

YOu didn't like the whole "Medal of honour" thing, that was great, but certainly not as good as the first film..

I've read the Manga. I can only imagine what a brutal gore fest the movie would be...*adds it to must-see list*

It's not just people running around killing each other, it's the portrait of a decaying society where young teenagers become such a menace to adults that they create something to keep them in order: Battle Royale. It's good to see the students relationships, it makes you sympathyze with the characters, you feel sorry for each and one of them when they're killed, you can almost yell at the screen "NOOO!!! DON'T DIE!". And the opening scene with the little girl holding on to a teddy bear (:confused: ) ´with a sadistic smile on her face. It's an awesome movie. I've been dying to read the novel in which it was based on and even got to the point of drawing fanart of Noriko and Mitsuko XD so I can say that i'm a bit obsessed with BR :p

I couldn't sleep XD

I've seen the first film, and I'm up to book 6 in the manga. I enjoyed the film, but prefer the manga far more - you get more of an insight into each character, and it just seems more tragic to me. It's a truly terrifying concept - I've had a couple of nightmares about being trapped in The Game. x.x

My dad thinks it's a pointless story, there simply so they can write about violence, which is rich coming from a man who's obsessed with the war. _

Battle Royale is excellent! I've seen the movie and read the book, the plot's got shifted around slightly but otherwise the film's quite faithful to the source material. It's very tragic, though.

The sequel is dire though. Avoid!
