    I really hate reading subtitles. They are the worst. Battle Royale is the only movie with subtitles I have seen more than once, it is that good. It also helps that there is so little dialogue in the movie.

    I don't think I can appreciate anything more than a film that inspired Kill Bill other than watching Kill Bill.

    Battle Royale is the ultra violent batshit Hunger Games that I didn't get in my youth. With 40+ students going at it with their guns they can't aim properly, I didn't find a lot of fault in it. It's one of those films that does not take a break in the intensity. I like those films. That teacher was pretty awesome. Kawada is the motherfucker (as Todd would say). It's a blur now, but for what it was worth, Battle…

    Quickie Review 
    There are some that say that "The Hunger Games" is a ripoff of this brutal masterpiece from Japan. "The Hunger Games" wishes it was this masterpiece of Japan and this is coming from a "Hunger Games" fan. You will never find a more striking combination of bloody action, intense characters & a smart statement about worldwide violence in general.

    Somewhat campy but its flaws are endearing. Visually immersive, aptly paced, & a great soundtrack. Strongly thematic, focused on the characters and their feelings of trust and young love.

    85/100 - Excellent.

    I hadn't watched Battle Royale in over a decade, and I can't believe that I didn't recall how cheesy it was. I still enjoyed it, make no mistake, but my fond recollections of the movie totally glossed over all of the melodramatic dialogue and death scenes (some of which, in fairness, are played for laughs). The graphic violence is a lot of fun if you're in the mood for it, but if you're looking for substance beyond blood spatters and…

    I was prepared for the blood. I wasn't prepared for this film to be as moving as it was. It's not perfect, but I found it to be a pretty intensely satisfying movie experience.
