    Fängt super an und hat auf jeden Fall Charme. Leider ist einem schnell egal wer stirbt und schauspielerisch wird auch nicht viel geboten. Gegen ein gutes Ab18 Remake mit fettem Budget hätte ich keine Einwände. Den aktuellen Hunger Games quatsch kann man ja vergessen. Daher bleibt Battle Royale immer noch einer der besten in diesem Genre.

    Way better than The Hunger Games. THG is a shameless ripoff.

    Of course I was inspired to watch this after 'The Hunger Games' first came out, and a lot of people were complaining about the popularity due to the fact that its plot suspiciously resembles that of 'Battle Royale.' They're certainly not wrong, though there are some key differences that make both of them individually entertaining.
    BR is actually wildly entertaining, despite the fact that one guy can shoot like 50 rounds out of a machine gun and not even hit…

    Extremely violent movie with a simple message: trust no one. Oh, and RUN!

    Brutal yet tense. It gave all of the characters meaning, and was utterly superb. Comparing Hunger Games to it is a crime, because they are 2 very similar contexts in completely different non-relatable settings, but it has to be said that the context in this film is a very chilling one.

    What a creepy film.

    Making a name for itself for its gruesome display of violence, Battle Royale has quickly become a cult classic. For me however, it was rather its quirky and weird creepiness that I found both so intriguing and enjoyable. This film's uncanny flamboyancy, sudden progression of plot that results in violent deaths, Noriko's and Kitano's dream sequence, portrayal of urban Japan that seems rather too normal for a country where such atrocities like Battle Royale is happening,…
