movie. This movie is about, basically, a government plan to reduce poverty levels by getting rid of the one thing that keeps them down, the youth
of the nation. The thing is, the government passed
a law called the BR act. In it, a class of 9th grade
students is put on a completely deserted island
with explosive collars on. If they try to take it off, it explodes. If they are in a danger zone, it explodes and any of the people who run the contest can detonate it using
a remote, too. If there is more than one survivor by the end of the 3 days, all of the collars explode. Each student
a pack with food, water, a map, a flashlight and most importantly, a weapon. SOme
get cool weapons
get average weapons
(sharp objects), while
others get completely screwed (Nannahara's pot-lid, for example). In the movie, the class that is chosen is also given
2 new transfer students. One of the transer students (Kawada Shugo) is experienced and knows a way out. The other transfer student
(Kiriyama Kazuo) is psychotic and crazy. This movie, in my opinion, is great
and should be watched by everyone. It is good in every categorie (except for family friendlieness, but who looks
for that?) and pretty entertaining while
at the same time thought provoking! Another interesting note is that it was based off a novel and also
has a manga.
but I'm not some wapanese, I liked Battle Royale alot for what it was, not just
because it was Japanese.
Fav part? Probably when Kitano shot his cell phone. Best
hang-up EVER! BR 2 isn't that
good but it's okay.
