  4. Adolfo Isaac's rating of the film Battle Royale

    a japanese horror masterpiece this inspired the author of the hunger games

  5. Kaonashiii's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Brilliant, and bizarrely watchable.

  6. John Burgess's rating of the film Battle Royale

    And there was me thinking that The Hunger Games was an original idea. A nice little movie. A little too B-movie for my tastes, but I can easily see how it became a cult classic in Japan. I like the reverse perspective of hounded teacher taking revenge on grim class of 2001 - it should be mandatory therapy for all UK state-school teaching staff. Glorious, silly nonsense.

  7. First Lady Dré's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Beats the hell out of cyber bullying....

  10. Katherine Lo's rating of the film Battle Royale

  11. PFL's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Like a sadistic version of "Lord of the Flies" (turned up to eleven!), "Battle Royale" is a brutal - almost operatic - piece of work with surprising moments of dark humour. The full-blown musical score lends the picture a nightmarish delirium, and whilst there is little that is subtle about the film the panache with which it is carried off makes it a striking experience.

  12. SiIencio's rating of the film Battle Royale

    A gory picture swinging between the realms of soppy teenage melodrama and political allegation, in its unpalatable sugarcoated version the former, in a confusing lazy effort the latter. Violence is the film's only leitmotif, without any other pretensions, and as such it is a feast. As pleasurable as cockfight, as redundant as socks in the bath.

  13. janh24's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Not as fun as others' reviews might suggest, but maintains one's interest.

  14. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Battle Royale

    A very cynical film with strong political subtext. Excellent use of pre-existing music as means of irony. The filmic structure with short flashbacks, sequences of violence or relief and text inserts functions very well.

  15. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Utterly demented and hugely enjoyable, even if it does have many holes in the plot. Great performances throughout too. Battle Royale is a Japanese cinema classic.

  20. -REM-'s rating of the film Battle Royale

  21. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Una versione più macabra ed asiatica degli Hunger Games. Noto per essere il film preferito di Tarantino - che da questa storia ha preso più di qualche spunto - Battle Royale oscilla tra il geniale e l'aberrante. Spesso la trama rasenta il ridicolo e i dialoghi sembrano scritti da un primate, ma per qualche motivo è un film che ti tiene incollato allo schermo. Se siete per i film seri e logici, evitatelo.

  22. Tatami's rating of the film Battle Royale

    Extremely entertaining and with high replay value. Sure, it's no art masterpiece but it has a strange quality to it, similarly to ExistenZ, coupled with a nightmarish scenario. It could have been a masterpiece if handled with more care.

  23. Elle Johnston's rating of the film Battle Royale

    This is quite possibly one of thee most screwed up movies I've ever seen but it was magical.
