BluRay Product Description

At the dawn of the new millennium, Japan is in a a state of near-collapse. Unemployment is at an all-time high, and violence among the nation's youth is spiraling out of control. With schoolchildren boycotting their classes and physically abusing their teachers, a beleaguered and near-defeated government decides to introduce a radical new measure: the Battle Royale Act Overseen by their former teacher ( Beat Takeshi) Kitano and requiring that a randomly chosen school class is taken to a deserted island and forced to fight each other to the death, the Act dictates that only one pupil is allowed to survive the punishment. He or she will return, not as the victor, but as the ultimate proof of the lengths to which the government is prepared to go to curb the tide of juvenile disobedience. One of the most controversial films of all time, clever, creepy and ultra-violent, Battle Royale is the jewel in the crown of Japanese Shock Cinema.

R.I.P Kinji Fukasaku

The series fell apart after he passed away.

Ordered and heat added thanks

Second movie is the better movie. Most people expected the same in a different jacket, but the story continued instead and progressed. Really an amazing movie. First one is also a fine film.
#13
What's the transfer like?
#14
fantastic
#15

Play.com have this listed as only 5000 copies to be released, dont know if that figure sounds right as seems pretty limited to 5000 for Europe unless play.com have got the figure wrong

Have got mine pre-ordered from amazon

You must be having a laugh. The second move is an abomination and I am sure Koshun Takami is apalled that such a film is linked to his amazing novel.

Also, big assumption that HMV's "SE" is the actual limited edition considering Amazon and Play both had mix-ups until they corrected that error by listing the contents.
#18
This is a great find, regardless of price. It being at a good price is a bonus. Thanks.
#19
Can't they just release 1 disc for £9.99? I must be getting old, just wanting the movie cheap rather than a ton of extras.
#20
first one was pure class
2nd one was okayish
#21
Good deal - first movie was brilliant.

2nd errrr why they bother....
#22
must-have! still remember seeing this in a small indie cinema in 2001 in Norwich!

Does this definitely have both films? I know in the details it says both films, but I can only see info about the first film on the web.

Both cuts of the film yes, the sequel isn't included though (no big loss, its terrible).

BTW, don't worry if it says Special rather than Limited Edition, Arrow have said that all pre-orders will be the limited set (its now been increased to 10,000 sets). The Special Edition is due in February.

I think the fact that the description says '* BRAND NEW RESTORED HIGH DEFINITION TRANSFER OF BOTH FILMS ' is confusing a lot of people.

I want this for the poster and bits and bobs but if the 'special edition' is released in february then what will then entail? If that comes along and is better i'll have 3 copies (I already have the 2 disk edition)

Hmmm, what to do.

I presume this version will be the better one considering they are releasing 5000 or 10000 copies of the limited edition before releasing the special edition as I would imagine they will include more stuff and extras in the box but who knows

Maybe the special edition might be the same minus a few bits of extras that are included in this version
#28
This will be the best edition, if another is out in Feb it'll be a lesser one. Over on the Arrow forums the admin has said "there's one more treat yet to be announced" (in this thread: http://www.cult-labs.com/forums/battle-royale/3799-arrow-video-battle-royale-dvd-blu-ray-specs.html), he later said it would probably be announced this week, looking forward to that!
#29
Yeah I'd highly recommend anyone interested in this set should visit the cultlabs forums, its directly linked to Arrow films who are producing the set.

If anyone is interested in waiting for the Special Edition in February, Arrow have said it will be a set similar to the Dawn of the Dead, Day, City of the Diving, etc. sets

I really want that City of the Living Dead set just on the strength of the Dawn and Day sets - I've never seen the film. Decisions, decisions.
#31

#32
