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.

Classic

This film is a cult classic and the steelbook is beautiful, I would definitely recommend to any SB collectors out there.

Sandjay

Excellent service received with in a week brilliant film

OG Hunger Games

Though this actually has little in common with The Hunger Games franchise there are comparisons to be made. This is a great, dark dystopian film that has a lot to say about where we could head as a society if we aren’t careful. It is definitely one to pick up if you have or haven’t seen it, especially presented in such a stylish steelbook. I’m becoming quite addicted to buying them but they are all welcome additions to my collection and this one is no exception.

Postage

Great product, great price. Only thing letting Zavvi down is delivery time. Seems like the last to receive these pre-orders
