Great price, almost a tenner less than Amazon!

Total rip-off of The Hunger Games.





(unfortunately I feel the need to clarify this is a joke, in case there are any thickos about)

Which (and let's not forget), is pretty much a rip off of William Golding's, Lord Of The Flies.

I do like Battle Royale - it's not often you'll find quality world cinema DVDs/Blu's reduced.
Heated.

Bought it, I enjoyed Hunger Games so hopefully I'll like this as well.

Tempted to get this. I've heard the transfer isn't great though.

OP, please put a hyphen in there as it may get confusing. Great deal, will buy to go with my book this is a gem of a cult classic. Heat added.

I'm in if it's included in 5 for £30 offer later like other £8 blus

Think I will be going to HMV at lunch to see if one can purchase this little circular video disc from this very boutique!

Still lets you checkout, strange.

This movie is full of girls in school uniforms.

One of the best films ever made, and an egg salad price for this 3 disc version!

Hadouken!

Neither film is anything like Lord of the Flies, have you read or seen any of them?

However both Battle Royale and Hunger Games are very good films with a similar theme

agree. at first i thought there was a third instalment that i hadn't heard of.

Hunger games is bloody awful. Battle Royale is absolutely brilliant.

really want to buy this but i need to resist...i have spent way too much this month and need to start saving again lol

Don't bother with battle royale 2 , wonder what the battle royale remake will be like when it comes out

Yeah but couldn't you just work it out? I mean, since when is there such a thing as a "Disc Edition" ?

Yeah if it's the same as this version blu-ray.com/mov…17/

'Both cuts have been struck from a dated source. As result, fine object detail and clarity are inconsistent. Contrast levels also fluctuate quite a bit, especially during the daylight scenes. Both cuts have an overall soft look - the Theatrical Cut appears marginally sharper, but the difference is indeed very small. Some of the softness is inherited, but I also noticed numerous traces of mild to moderate noise corrections. Mild edge-enhancement is also easy to spot. Various small compression artifacts are present as well. This being said, there are no serious stability issues, and a lot of the background flicker that is present on the Tartan SE SDVD edition of Battle Royale has been eliminated.'

Expired-now up to £20. Given the standard BRs were also £8 I wouldn't be surprised if it was a mis-price...

Good find. The 1-disc edition has been around this price for a while now, but I've been holding out for this one.

I didn't even know there was a third one, hope its gory as the previous two.

Yes. Seen all three.
Read both novels.
Kids killing kids on islands. Thematically, basically all the same.

Total rip-off of 'The Condemned' this film lacks VInny Jones and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin

If you generalise to that degree then Indiana Jones and Inglorious Basterds are the same movie too.

I see the 3 disc (not the standard editions) as £20:

Excellent film.

Hunger Games is not in the same league. Best review I saw of that contained this line:

"This is to Battle Royale what Twilight is to From Dusk Til Dawn"



Spot on!

Excellent film, heat added
Gory as hell love it, have not seen hunger games yet but as i can tell it is a kids version of this from peoples comments

Is this the 3 disc edition or not? : s

This film is amazing. Truly worth watching.
The sequel was not so great... as for the hunger games well, I feel it would be best if I did not answer that

rdbradshaw

wonder what the battle royale remake will be like when it comes out


I can imagine it'll be a lot like Hunger Games - which was itself pretty much a BR remake - just with more blood and violence, more flesh on show, and more swearing.

got the dvd ages but never have a chance to watch it, should be a great film!

Jurassic Park is a rip off too, Dinosaurs, Children, all the same thing

And Terminator ripped off Westworld...

It would be nice if people could just watch both, and rate them individually. Films, like books, like songs, and like games, have had so many made that it becomes progressively more difficult to do anything truly original. Do you like something? If you do, that's all that matters.:|

Said in stock for me.

Not watches this in years! Purchased.

Heat.

Better than the ripoff "Hunger Games"

Any one interested in the book it's here for £3.12 New
