One of my favorite films of all time. Great characters all around, realistic action, ridiculously crazy plot, and some hilarious antics. Makes Hunger Games look like Family Feud. 10/10 And to the silly saying which is reminiscent, Hunger Games was written in 2008, 8 years after this was released, and this was based on a novel completed in 1996 :l Hunger Games author just totally stole her idea from this film, and did a piss poor adaptation at that. HG is the Disney version of BR.

This makes The Hunger Games look like Twilight. When it comes to the theme, acting and overall delivery I would say this is one of the best Japanese films this side of the millenium.

Who needs the hunger games when you have this. This film did it so much better.

After reading all the comments about this movie, i decided to watch it about 2 month ago and i am sure glad i did, this fascinating, brilliant and unique film asks the question of, how far will people go to survive? would you kill to live? even if it is your best friend, then takes you on a dark, Violent, yet wonderfully atmospheric journey that is creepy, disturbing, sad and even at times a bit funny, with the finest ensemble performances you'll see from such a young cast to takes a look at how far people will go to stay alive. BATTLE ROYALE is an instant classic and a cinematic gem with a great concept, wonderful cinematography and an Absolutely brilliant cast. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT if you like (psychological thriller) 5/5, stagevu has the special extended version.

People who keep on comparing this to the hunger games - it's very different. I was a fan of battle royale before any of this hunger games stuff but after reading it then watching the film it really changed my opinion. The only thing that is similar is that these kids are forced to kill each other. There are many other films that are similar. what about the running man? or the truman show (in the arena scenes) keep in mind that people also did this back in ancient times with gladiators for entertainment. History repeats itself people. If i didn't watch any romantic comedies because let's face it they're all basically 'girl like boy. doesn't realise the right guy is her best friend till the end' then that's stupid. Yes they have the basic concept that connects it but after that it's so different Coming from an open minded person

Battle Royale does have a lot in common with the hunger games; and I wondered all through the bloody action, empathized with the characters, trying to join together against the government, and being too paranoid to do that, what the author was really trying to say. Besides it being a great action picture, and having very sympathetic characters, who are very human, I think the author was trying to say that governments send our children to war, against each other and kill them all off. And that's the true meaning of the picture. And, that's pretty correct, that's what happens. For example, the Vietnam War was fought all by 19-year-olds pretty much. That was the medium age.19-year-old soldiers are still children. Also, there is a lot of emphasis on whether or not some of the characters can trust each other, or whether they're trying to fool each other, so they can kill each other off and be the last one. So trust and betrayal from someone you know, weighed heavily in this movie.unlike the hunger games, all the school children knew each other. So how can you kill off someone that you know and like? Very profound and bloody movie, but very entertaining. Not for children, too violent.

I loved the Manga and I love this movie. The manga was a lot gorier so I thought this movie wouldn't compare but it actually held it's own. I would suggest this movie to hardcore anime and manga fans. If you saw this movie but haven't read the manga yet then you just have to pick the manga up(they sell the volumes at local book stores or you could probably find it online). It's more insane then the movie. The movie was great still. 4/5

Anyone who thinks america can make original movies is obviously blind, we see a repeat prescription from BR in The Condemed. If you notice the amount of REMAKES spewing forth from the bile ridden diseased hollywood, lets not mention DB:E (ever again). EVERY film pretty much from the year 2000 has been a remake plastered with a different name, the truth is hollywood RELY on the actors to make the revenue, they sell the movie by selling the actors name not the story 'DIAZ' 'WILLIS' 'S.L.JACKSON' 'ALBA' 'DEPP' 'CAGE' the list goes on and shows these "actors" can only play one character 'STILLER' 'SANDLER' 'WILSON'. They remake, repackage, resell and readvertise the same story. We are at a point where ANYONE can make a half baked cast run from half baked CGI and still call it a 'movie'. I've seen sweded films on youtube that have impressed me more than most new western films. BR 9/10 great movie.

This makes Hunger Games looks like a kitten compared to this royal lion of a movie.

This is the movie The Hunger Games wishes it was. Awesome film. One of my favourites.

I'm gonna sound bias, but so much more better then the hunger games imo. I love both, but this one just captures the horror of kids killing kids. Of friends killing friends, it really captured that horror. This also had a richer and denser story, ala the manga and book which are far more gruesome and sexual. Plus the story of the hunger games had potentional but flaws, like seriously, its just that in 74-75 years after the hunger games were enacted people finally found how awful it was from a silly love story, which btw was better defined in battle royale. good film
