  Battle Royale Remastered Extended Version [EZD]   

Our Price: $2.00
(MSRP: $14.99)



Description
Kinji Fukasaku's Battle Royale is among the most controversial films of last years. It is based on the Japanese novel that was very provoking and "shocked the nation." The plot is simple: at the dawn of the new millennium (the film is set in near future)the nation collapsed and all kind of social menaces were born as students started to boycott their schools and act very violently towards teachers and adults in general. Unemployment numbers were alarmingly huge and everything was going to fall apart. The Battle Royale act was created and it meant that every year, one ninth grade class was chosen by random to play "Battle Royale" which turns out to be savage hunting game in order to stay alive. The game is played in deserted island in the middle of the sea. The rule is that only one of the 40+ students is allowed to survive and the winner is the one who is last alive. They have 3 days time to fight and if there are more than one person alive after three days, everyone will be killed. They can't escape as they have deadly necklaces that explode if they try to rip them off or try to escape or do something that is against the "rules." The chosen ninth grade's teacher is played by Takeshi Kitano with his usual charisma and sense of very dark and wry humor. It is not necessary to tell anything more about the story since this is all that can be told without spoiling anything. In few words: a human hunting/killing game in which only one can be a winner. You may need to kill your closest friend or girlfriend if you want to stay alive..

  Staff Review by NozomuNov 16, 2003  
The tagline for this film was the gruesome phrase "Could you kill your best friend?" It's fitting to the film, however overused it may be. Come the turn of the millennium, Japanese teens are out of control, they boycott school and terrorize the adults who lived in constant fear of them. So the adults . . .

When you see a little girl covered in blood not one minute into the film, it should give you an idea of what's to come.


This is not MXC, and they don't call him "Beat" Takeshi Kitano for nothing.


Yeah, real lucky...


They look cute, and then they try to stab you in the face.

  This movie is one of my personal favorites, the story is very though provoking and deep - there is more to it than meets the eye. You will be thinking about it long after its over, and the acting is fantastic- at this price its one of the best bargains around-

  This movie is phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal. After just one viewing, I have placed it on my top 5 list of all time. Anyone looking for a good movie should buy this now. ASAP. The sound is of great quality, and it features a classic soundtrack with all the right nuances to it's brutality. In fact, the entire film is this way. everything accentuates everything else. The acting is wonderful, the story is awesome, and the characters are breathtaking. Some of the characters have you laughing while others will have you terrified that such people could exist. In fact, there is only one aspect of this DVD that is close to bad; the subtitles. While they're never bad enough to be called rotten, there are a few times when the subs zip past or are simply translated or spelled so badly that you're left scratching your head. However, the circumstances will more than likely explain themselves, as there are very few spots where I was left wondering what was going on. The DVD also features several extras, such as the usual 'Making...' of stuff and a few trailers here and there. The menus are easy to navigate, since they are in English, and I never found myself lost in them. I'd recommend this film to anyone who isn't overly squeamish and disturbed at a bit of violence. It is, after all, rated from 15 and up (according to the movie trailer)...

  Battle Royale is a mixed bag. On one hand, we have great video and sound quality, on the other, we have subtitles that skip dialogue. This annoying little trait can leave one who has not read the book confused to what's happening in the movie. Overall, still a good product. A must have for BR fans such as myself.
