This movie makes the hunger games look like shit

This movie makes the hunger games look like shit, The story is about 42 ninth-grade classmates are stranded on a deserted island each with a weapon and a choice: kill or be killed and they all been told all of that by they head teacher. let me just say one thing that I Did not like about this movie and that is when the kids would be shot or sharped they will keep moving around like water just spilled all over them and that's it really and let's get to the good, the movie has some really good kills and they is a character in the movie who has been in the game before and he is a Bad-ass. This movie has some really slow parts and they feel like they go on for every just because some of the characters back story are just not interesting to me and that's really it to talk about this movie is a...

"Battle Royale" by Yojimbo

A Japan increasingly concerned with spiralling urban violence makes an example of troublesome teens by stranding them on a desert island with the sole purpose of making them kill each other off until just one remains. Kinji Fukasaku's magnificently tasteless satire on reactionary politics could be considered the logical conclusion of reality TV. The concept is a kind of cross between The Running Man and Lord Of The Flies. All the usual High School shenanigans are involved, but the introduction of lethal weapons throws the cliques, crushes and rivalries into a whole new light! The young cast are all great and Fukusaku was a veteran of Japanese Yakuza films and therefore a dab hand at stylized violence; the unrelenting drama and action of a type of slasher film where EVERYONE is the killer ...
