"The Hunger Games"? No, actually it's "Battle Royale," a bloody and harrowing movie that came out several years earlier, depicting an alternate Japan where the youth are forced to kill each other. The first film one of those movies that is strangely fascinating and filled with social commentary, but the sequel falls short with its clunky message and suspenseless violence.
"Battle Royale": A class of high-schoolers are being transported on a bus, when they are gassed to unconsciousness. When they awake, they have electronic collars around their necks. A former teacher named Kitano explains that they have been chosen for the B.R. ("Battle Royale") Act, wherein teenagers are forced to fight each other to the death until only one is left standing.
If you don't play, try to escape, refuse to kill or stray into a "death zone," the collars explode. Each teenager is given food, water and a random item, and are set loose on a remote island. As the teens slowly weed each other out, Shuya Nanahara and his girlfriend Noriko try to find a way out that doesn't involve death. But if they refuse to kill, then they must escape the fascist nightmare... which no one has done before.
"Battle Royale II: Requiem" takes place a few years later -- another group of teenagers are gassed, and wake with the explosive electronic collars. But their Battle Royale is a little different: they're put in pairs and given 72 hours to storm a remote island stronghold and kill Shuya Nanahara (who has since become a terrorist).Read more ›
Anyway, this set contains both versions of the first film, theatrical and director's cut, along with Battle Royale II: Requiem, and a full fourth disc with a few hours of special features on it.
BATTLE ROYALE: I think the director's cut to be superior to the theatrical cut. I'm saying that right now. Both versions are great, however. We all know what its premise is by now: a class of middle school kids gets abducted by their government to compete in a tournament on a secluded island. They have three days to kill each other, and if any rules are broken, the collars around their necks will explode. They have three days to kill each other, and only one may survive.
This is a very powerful movie; the characters, most of whom are likeable, are portrayed the way they should be portrayed, and not like some cold-hearted suddenly-badass action heroes that can rampage through the island with plot armour to protect them. No, they're shown as desperate, scared, and for some of them, even a little crazy from the pressure. I don't mind badass action heroes with plot armour, but I was glad that this movie didn't go down that route. The characters are down-to-earth and the movie progresses at a steady pace, with quite a few memorable scenes along the way (the lighthouse scene, for instance, which is my favourite). Hell, you even feel something for Sakamochi (the instructor that pretty much forces them to kill each other) other than hatred and rage when you realize his own daughter hates him (and not because he's killing kids either, she isn't aware of that).Read more ›
i don't know who came first or if there're supposed to be similar in story wise,
but i love this one,the American one seem to be tone down in it's depiction of
violence which is okay but when you can't be true to the story the movie don't
make much sense,now in this,they show the raw nature of how humans can't
handle the youths of today,if you want to behave badly stick you on a island and let
them fight it out,the movie is called Battle Royale for a "bloody" reason,
and that's no bull..
here's what you have in the packaged.
Disc 1 Battle Royale Director's Cut.

Heard many good things about this movie, was terribly disappointed.Published 18 months ago by cindy
Suspending disbelief for the premise would only make sense to someone in Japan,I suspect. Otherwise pretty good.Published 18 months ago by read and right
The movie is what i expected out of a Japanese,movie very good and gory. Anchor Bay Entertainment did a great job getting English actors to match the characters voices perfectly. Read morePublished on July 15 2013 by Corey Benoit
