Cool premise for callous entertainment hence The Hunger Games and Fortnite. Well executed too.
If it invents a sub-genre, it’s a legendary movie
The violence of this series is so great and attractive that it even made Tarantino jealous Hunger Games and Squid Game are worthless copies
Instant classic, the first of a gritty genre that has yet to be countered in both emotion and gore. It's an instant hit baby!
A Japanese classic, think The Hunger Games but better and more violent.
Based on the Manga. Recognised a few actors later in crazy 88. I love Chigusa. Don't bother with the sequel.
A great film for those who love the violent and intense storylines. There were a few random plot lines, but on the whole it’s a good watch.
I remember wishing the Hunger Games wasn't cheap pandering shallow shite. Thank God Battle Royale exists.
One of my favorite Foreign films, dark, brutal, and absolutely action packed. A disturbing concept but a highly entertaining film.
The Hunger Games if it were just about the games and the teenagers who predicated in it and the gamemasters, No Revolution no problem.
In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary "Battle Royale" act.
It's three years after the events of the original Battle Royale, and Shuya Nanahara is now an internationally-known terrorist determined to bring down the government. His terrorist group, Wild Seven, stages an attack that levels several buildings in Tokyo on Christmas Day, killing 8000 people. In order for the government to study the benefits of "teamwork", the new students work in pairs, with their collars electronically linked so that if one of them is killed, the other dies as well. They must kill Nanahara in three days - or die.
