Plot Summary: In the turn of the century, Japan's economy went to an all-time low. The unemployment rate skyrocketed and the country's youths boycotted school and rebelled against their elders. In response to the ensuing mayhem, the Japanese government passed a new law called the Millennium Educational Reform Act—infamously known as "The Battle Royale Act." This movie focuses on one high school class that is chosen to participate in the latest Battle Royale, where each student must survive and kill their classmates on a remote island for three days until only one is left standing.

Comment:
Like the manga of the same title, Battle Royale is based on the best-selling novel by Koushun Takami. The original theatrical release is 114 minutes long. The director's cut, which runs at 122 minutes and deviates from the original's R-15 rating, includes several minutes of flashback scenes that further explain the story. Additional CG blood effects are incorporated in most of the film's gruesome scenes.
