Excellent picture and sound quality. The dub isn't terrible but I would always suggest you watch foreign films with the original audio track with subtitles. Subtitles were excellent and clear. The movies themselves are excellent as well. Must buy for fans of Battle Royale.

PRO: This edition has an English language dub on the Director's Cut of the film only (it's a pretty typically bad English dub done using voice actors that don't do the film justice, but it's there for the people that want to see the film but don't want to read the subtitles).

CON: Several; the BIGGEST and STUPIDEST is the fact that Anchor Bay forgot to add a, 'Signs Only' English subtitle option, as this film has a lot of onscreen text (i.e. the opening scrawl and an ongoing update of who's died in the game as it progresses, etc.) so what you have to do is keep the English subtitles on while you listen to the English track, but the problem with this (and the one thing that Anchor Bay got right, though without the 'Signs Only' subtitle option, this can be a tad annoying) is that the English dub track and the English subtitles differ which can be a tad disconcerting when watching them together (like you have to if you're watching with the English language dub and also want to get the subtitles for the Japanese text that appears throughout the film).

PRO: The picture quality is the best I've seen this movie look, even better than the European Arrow special edition Blu-ray (which is kind of odd, as the subtitles seem to be a direct port from the Arrow edition in content and timing, but the Anchor Bay picture quality is better, nowhere is this more prevalent then in the cave sequence near the beginning of the film; in the Arrow version there's a milky haze to the darkness as the two lead characters make their way into it, where as in the Anchor Bay version, the milky haze is gone).

So if you're coming to look at this, you probably have some idea what it is... Battle Royale, the movie based on the 1999 novel about a class of teenagers selected to take part in the BR Program, put on an island, and forced to kill each other until only one person remains. Deemed "too controversial" for North American audiences until another movie and book series with a similar premise became popular (The Hunger Games), clearly the sales strategy here was to capitalize off that hype (and fair enough, Battle Royale came first, so why shouldn't it steal some of that thunder).

In this collection you get the directors cut and theatrical cut of Battle Royale (the directors cut expands a little on a few characters and scenes but not much, the only thing I felt the theatrical cut could have used was the Mitsuko flashback but the rest is somewhat unnecessary). You also get Battle Royale II, which was not quite as good as the original but the concept is pretty interesting (everyone is paired up with their collars linked unlike the original where it was every person for themselves), and a fourth disc full of extras. If you're a massive Battle Royale fan, this is the collection you want. If you're just a casual fan, or someone recommended the movie to you and you've never seen it before, I'd suggest saving your money and getting just the first movie. If you become a super-fan and want this collection after watching Battle Royale, you can always gift the movie to someone else.

The video and audio is great, the subtitles are excellent (though I do remember seeing a mistake or two, something I'd expect from a $10 eBay bootleg but not on a professionally done disc like this), I'm told the dubbing is brutal (but I wouldn't ever listen to it), my only real gripe is with the packaging.

3.0 out of 5 stars No mercy, only death Feb. 22 2014
Imagine this: a country is run by a totalitarian government, which occasionally selects groups of teenagers to methodically kill each other, until only one remains.

"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).

Suspending disbelief for the premise would only make sense to someone in Japan,I suspect. Otherwise pretty good.
