Japanese Movie Review: Battle Royale

Battle Royale is a 2000 Japanese action thriller film adapted from the 1999 novel of the same name by Koushun Takami. It's the final film directed by Kinji Fukasaku, the screenplay was written by his son Kenta, and stars Takeshi Kitano.
The film tells the story of Shuya Nanahara, a high school student struggling with the death of his father, who is forced by the government to compete in a deadly game where the students must kill each other in order to win. The film was aroused both domestic and international controversy and was either banned outright or deliberately excluded from distribution in several countries.


To me, this movie is very violent and their is a LOT of killing but, the movie is very exciting and fun to watch to see how these people go behind their friend backs and kill them and how they tried to survive the game. This movie is like the Japanese version of The Hunger Games but, I like Battle Royale way more better! ^^ I recommend this to anyone who enjoys action and highly violent movies.

There was going to be a 3D version of the movie in the USA but, was cancelled. But there is a 3D version in Japan and was released on November 20, 2010.

Movie Rating: R-15

I hope you enjoy this movie if you ever get a chance to see it~! ^^
