Battle Royale (バトル・ロワイアル Batoru Rowaiaru) is a japanese thriller film adapted from the best-selling 1999 novel of the same name by Koushun Takami.

Why It Rocks

  1. The concept and analysis of Battle Royale about many people must fight each other to the death in remote island is very creative.
  2. It follows very faithfully to the novel that was based on.
  3. Likable and powerful characters to survive, work each-other and even have tragic backstories from Shuya Nanahara, Noriko Nakagawa, Shogo Kawada and the other survivors.
  4. Excellent casting choices like Takeshi Kitano portrayed as the main antagonist teacher Kitano.

Bad Qualities

  1. It caused controversy by parents, teachers and everyone about school students must kill each other in very gruesome ways since both novel and movie released.
