Rewind: Battle Royale (Review and Trailer)

It's time for a Insano Steve retro review! Enjoy!

Battle Royale

Battle Royale (2000)

Directed by Kinji Fukasaku

In the future, the teenagers of Japan have become like the teenagers of the U.S. (lazy, narcissistic, obnoxious, ignorant, prone to violence/sex/drugs/MTV). To combat this, Japan creates a program to kill one class of students each year. 30 students go on an island with the last student standing only, allowed to live.

Kids receive weapons from the powers that be and are off to kill each other in most entertaining ways. Is actually as good as it sounds. Includes a counter of how many students remain alive. With Beat Takashi as their teacher. Great concept, if only it were real.
