    Was just watching this movie tonight. I forgot how good it is. Did anyone see the 2nd? I heard it was no where as good.

    I haven't seen the 2nd unfortunatly. I really want to, just to see how it fares in comparison to the first. Battle Royal is a really fantastic film. I also heard that the 2nd wasn't very good.

    The second one's a completely different tangent that was skewed from the original story line. Enjoyable movie, but nothing special.

    The second one starts off great, but then ends horribly.

    HI
    BR1 is still the best in my opinion. I showed all of my friends Battle Royale and let them read all of my BR Manga and they were like "OMG!! This Movie Kills All Other Movies!!"

    I agree the first one was pretty cool, but the second one was complete garbage.

    The first one was just a random omgihurtu fest..the second attempted at a plot but at the end they just end up becoming muslim.

    BR1 is a classic. BR2 is trashy remake.

    Just saw BR1 last night. Would you watch an RL version of this if they had it on TV?

    I think it would be must see TV! 10 times more real than Survivor.

    The first one by far is better then BR2. I ended up getting both dvd's off
    Ebay with all the special features well worth it.

    if anyone has the time, the book is a very easy read and very, very enjoyable. the lighthouse scene with the poisons is so much better in the book ;)

    It is good, but then the book version is nearly always better.

    Wow. BR2 was not that bad. It is a typical anime story with live action. It isn't much more than that. I wouldn't call it garbage though.
