 One Dead. 41 To Go.

Battle Royale is back. It’s time to return to the island and kill your friends, because the cult Japanese movie that defines twisted action and sickening violence is ready to shock you all over again.

In a world where teenagers have no respect and adults are losing control there can be only one solution: Battle Royale! Now, see what happens when you let a high school class loose on an island, arm them and then give them a simple choice... Kill your friends or have them kill you; with poison, cross-bows, machetes and dynamite. ‘Beat’ Takeshi Kitano (Violent Cop, Zatoichi) is a teacher pushed to the edge by his unruly charges. Kidnapped and gassed, his class wake up with exploding metal rings around their necks. If they rebel, they could lose their heads. Now they have three days and only one is permitted to survive this grisly battle to the death.

Directed by the master of 70s Yakuza thrillers Kinji Fukasaku and featuring Kill Bill star Chiaki Kuriyama, Battle Royale is the movie that helped to define extreme Asian cinema in the 21st Century.

battle royale

excellent film much better than the hunger games if you have'nt seen it then its a must and at an excellent price.

Battle Royale

Battle Royale is absolutely brilliant.

A must see

A classical on its genre. Have you seen the Hunger Games? Battle Royale is what the Hunger Games films would like to be when they grow up.

Excellent

The best movie in modern cinema, awesome performances from all the cast and so beautifully directed. A must watch for any film fan

Superb!

If you haven't seen Battle Royale: you need to. And if you have, this is the only version worth buying. This Blu-ray version features a superb transfer quality and more extras than you can shake a stick at, if that's how you roll. There are 2 versions of the film, trailers, features, promos - this really is the complete package. Buy it!
