    because students killing students is unheard of in hollywood. though in reality, i think we lead that particular figure. :o

    I never really cared about seeing it much anyway, someone mislabeled a movie and I ended up downloading it. The description made it sound interesting but I'd trust smf's judgement on it more than the azns :p

    :bowdown: Battle Royale kicked ass! I can't wait to see the sequel. Soon Tinseltown will do a remake of Battle Royale like they did with the remake of The Ring, the upcoming remake of asian films like Shall we dance, The Eye and Dark Water. Fuck bad remakes.:rant2:

    and they pretty much glossed over the whole reason the kids are sent to the island to kill each other :weak: no good fighting either, a mediocer love interest, the headmaster dude was the only cool character :hs:

    Adivce if you are planning to see Battle Royale 2: Requiem - watch the first 1h45m and turn it off before the ending. Make one up, the one you will see is :greddy:
