Imagine the Huger games on steroids and with guns. That is Battle Royal. This movie is about how the teens of Japan have lost all respect for adults so they need to be taught a lesson. One 9th grade class is randomly selected to participate in BTR act. This means they have to kill one another until only one of them is left. Overall there is a lot of great action and a lot of great fights. My only problem with the movie is that there isn't much of a story. It will be super intense at times and then 2 seconds later nothing is going on. I recommend this movie if you are patient enough to enjoy some great action.
Quentin Tarentino Meets Hunger Games
by JOSE GABRIEL -
Sometimes I like purchasing products that I've never watched in the past and it was definitely the case for this film. Aside from Tokyo Sonata and a couple of Akira Kurosawa's movies, I haven't really watched a lot of live-action movies from Japan.
I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I would like to describe this movie as an improved and more interesting version of the hunger games mixed with Tarentino's way of depicting violence in his movies. You can really see the blood splashing in a graphic way which amplifies the brutality in the majority of the scenes.
The package itself and its contents were what you'd expect from any classic blu-ray package. It's simple enough and offers a really good quality of visuals. It comes with English subs and dubs. I personally always prefer watching content in its original language, so I watched it subbed.
A Japanese movie classic

This is movie clearly inspired The Hunger Games and is clearly better, more hard-core and adult than The Hunger Games is. This is a clear classic of Japanese cinema and a must watch for any cinephile.
