Battle Royale - ONE MESSED UP MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!

Last night I saw the Japanese movie "Battle Royale". It's probably the most gory and sickening movie I've seen.

The movie is about a class of high school students captured by the government and forced to compete in a game of death. They are brought to a desert island, where they are closely monitored by videocameras by the military.

Here's some of the rules:

1. There is a device put around your neck that explodes you head off if you attempt to take it off. If you try to leave the island, the device will explode. If you stay too long in what are called "Danger Zones", the device will go off.

2. If there is more than one person left standing after the 3 Day time limit, the neck device will go off. That means, if you and your best friend are left standing: one of you has to go!

3. Here's where it get interesting. As each person leaves the starting point to begin Battle Royale, they are thrown a random duffle bag full of mystery supplies.

If you are lucky, you will get a machine gun, axe, or crossbow.

If you are not so lucky, you'll receive an umbrella, binoculars, or pot lid.

Then things get nasty! Girlfriends killing boyfriends!!



This movie is brutal!!! You can't get away with this stuff if the states!! :hurl:

Yes, it is definitely one of the more grumsome films that I have seen in a while, yet, I found it to be very well done...It was fairly interesting to see how each person would turn on another with some of the deaths just being simply brutal to watch (ie/ Chigusa, the girl in the yellow track suit, and how she killed that guy who had a crush on her....what a way to go, if u remember )

All in all, I enjoyed the film....If u have a weak stomach tho, be warned, this movie is definitely not for you...Very grusome...

Is it out at the movies, or on DVD?

It's on DVD. Check the internet or eBay. That's all I could tell you.

Here's a link to a synopsis/review

I called my local import store and they said it was $60

But I checked on eBay and it's 14.99 regular and 19.99 Special 2-DVD edition.

Here's a link:

Check out the pics!

I want to see this movie. It looks disturbing, disgusting, and downright twisted. I love it.

p is an unknown quantity at this point
my brother works at a comic shop which also rents imported movies... and he brought it home one day...

he watched the whole thing and i only caught about 1/4th of it but let me tell you it is some crazy-shiznit...

ultra-violent... shocking... and was banned in japan...

but yeah, its not senseless violence (aside from the reason they have this battle royale, but youre going to have to watch the movie to find out why they do) but it's also about the relationships between students when put into that situation...

peace

It is definitely a crazy movie. One movie like it that I want to see but have no way to get is 'Ichi the Killer.' Has anyone here seen it?

And if you don't want to buy it on ebay, www.pokerindustries.com has a great selection of foreign movies like this. Make sure US people get a region 1 DVD (NTSC) or else it won't play in your DVD player.

They made a movie out of that in Japan? I know they did here. I'm pretty sure it's a game too, as the states have out it, but it's called "Resident Evil" instead of "Bio Hazard."

There's been like 4 of them made.

no...maybe i got the name wrong...i'm up on Resident evil. This one was about some asian youths being attacked in a mall by zombies.

also there is another one coming out from australia called THE UNDEAD...its supposed to be pretty humorous and violent.

Re: Battle Royale - ONE MESSED UP MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!

I picked up the book and I'm about 100 pages in and already it's one of more violent books I've ever read. And I've read every Stephen King book :wink:. I should be done in a day or two and I'll pick up the movie after this. I'll tell y'all how it is.

Re: Battle Royale - ONE MESSED UP MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone tells me the book is better and that the sequel is god awful just in case anyone cared. I've seen this one a few times and I really enjoyed it overall. You obviously have to suspend your disbelief in a whole lot of it but its pretty entertaining stuff( in an over the top way.) The guy who plays the headmaster from brother and the miike blind samurai movie is great too. You also get to see sexy MIdo(sp?) lucy liu's school girl bodygaurd in her pre- Kill Bill days.
