The world is a different place. Society has failed to keep the youth of its countries in check and spreading violence and anarchy has lead everything to this: Battle Royale. A program where one class of students in Japan are taken to a remote island, given weapons, and told they have 3 days to kill each other until only one remains. If more than one remains, then they all die. Now a reluctant class of youth have been chosen and with a few willing participants to edge the game forward, they must make decisions about their lives that will change them forever. It's kill or be killed.
|Don't let the track suit fool you, Beat Takeshi has a mean streak the size of the Pacific Ocean.
|Reminds me of last Tuesday. Oh how I love pheasant hunting.
|The overreaction to her friend's eating the last of the Cinnamon Life cereal might have been drastic. Might have.
The bottom line remains: "Battle Royale" is a brilliant film that combines the great aspects of cult cinema into an artistic and relevant message about humanity and our reluctance to understand what we are doing. It's got amazing execution with a ferocity to push the boundaries of what this film could be and its a film that will remain with its audience long after its finished. Blood Brothers approved!
