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
- The concept and analysis of Battle Royale about many people must fight each other to the death in remote island is very creative.
- It follows very faithfully to the novel that was based on.
- 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.
- Excellent casting choices like Takeshi Kitano portrayed as the main antagonist teacher Kitano.
- 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.
