Synopsis: ONE DEAD. 41 TO GO.

Battle Royale is back. It’s time to return to the island and kill your friends, because the cult Japanese movie that defines twisted action and sickening violence is ready to shock you all over again.

In a world where teenagers have no respect and adults are losing control there can be only one solution: Battle Royale! Now, see what happens when you let a high school class loose on an island, arm them and then give them a simple choice... Kill your friends or have them kill you; with poison, cross-bows, machetes and dynamite. ‘Beat’ Takeshi Kitano (Violent Cop, Zatoichi) is a teacher pushed to the edge by his unruly charges. Kidnapped and gassed, his class wake up with exploding metal rings around their necks. If they rebel, they could lose their heads. Now they have three days and only one is permitted to survive this grisly battle to the death.

Directed by the master of 70s Yakuza thrillers Kinji Fukasaku and featuring Kill Bill star Chiaki Kuriyama, Battle Royale is the movie that helped to define extreme Asian cinema in the 21st Century.

Good film, just a shame that they had to steal the idea from Hunger Games (_;)

The director's cut is odd. They filmed a load of footage years later and put it into the film. It's quite nice, but not essential.

The directors cut was the first version i ever saw of it years ago, so i figured that was the standard version till I later saw edited versions on tele etc.

I think most of the new scenes are designed to give a bit more back story into the class, such as the whole basketball thing, since the movie jumps in and gets started rather quick

I nearly got this but the ended up buying the limited edition steel tin which cost 3 times as much! Just looks so nice.

The only difference is the tin that's it. So this is a great deal.

Bought it last week, great price. A must for a Battle Royale fan.
