    My second watch today...
    What’s this movie like? mmmm dark. Well, and fun. Let’s be honest, if someone tells you: “There’s this movie where a bunch of teenage students are stuck in a game where they have to kill each other till only one remains”, after hearing that, you just know you gotta watch it haha. Even if it somehow sucks it will probably be entertaining. But then to our surprise we soon realize it doesn’t suck at all by…

    Ante el aumento de la violencia juvenil, una ley obliga a una clase de instituto a enfrentarse a muerte hasta que solo quede uno... Mucho antes de la edulcorada Los Juegos del Hambre, Fukasaku ya habia creadio una distopia donde los jovenes han de matarse como entretenimiento / escarmiento. Una pelicula inteligente, violenta, divertida y original (pese a que ha sido imitada hasta la saciedad. Grande.

    Better than 'The Hunger Games'! More tension, more emotion!

    I was blown away by this on first viewing and, while it remains viscerally entertaining, brutal and topical, I now find I'm irritated by the melodramatic interludes. Still, it's far more urgent than The Hunger Games, its distant cousin, and is closer in tone to The Lord of the Flies, being necessarily violent and particularly cruel.

    Spectacular everything except possibly the script. And the motivation. I'm not sure quite what everyone gets out of the game.

    (Also Hunger Games is superior and loves women. There, I said it)

    Transgressive for its themes and content, no doubt, but its form is shockingly retrograde, bordering on incompetent. Seems at least ten years behind its time, appearing more like some remnant of the eighties than a millennial satire. And the violence, while initially shocking, gradually becomes familiar and tame as the film progresses.

    Still noteworthy, but not exceptional.

    Puede que sea un poco duro, pero esto me pareció un mero ejercicio de entretenimiento con muchas aspiraciones, resultando ser pretencioso. Es una película que quiere ser mucho más de lo que es agregando una enorme carga de melodrama, a pesar de esto, hay una atmósfera del humor japonés de acción, al cual, debo decir, no le tengo mucho afecto.

    Una historia muy interesante que, a la larga, resulta ser un desperdicio, la forma en que Fukasaku da vida a…
