To this day, I love battle royale because it was a Blls to the Wall, No Holds Barred Movie that didn't Give a F#K about being P.C.I hope they don't scru up the U.S. remake but you know it's gonna happen. But AnyWho, what do you Guys think about BR: A horror Movie or Not, Let Me Know

definitely one of my favorites!

the book gets into a lot more detail and you get to learn more about all of the characters of course...it's the book!...but i think they did a great job with the film.

i never saw the second one..........didn't want to. i think the first is enough.

Damn good movie, Damn good manga series, and I haven't read the book yet. I guess you could say it was action/horror. Most of all, it was just bad ass.

OMG! LOVE this Film! I just Rewatched it AGain! Love IT!

Why don't we ever see that Hot chick that played the phsyco? At Least I don't thinK I have!

Best scene in this film was the Lighthouse! AWESOME!

Hated Battle Royale II

To bad the writer/director of the first one passed on and his son (obvious an idiot) tried to make BRII) as his first film, but he was second unit director on the first one so.. I'm confused ;.;

Are they Americanizing that movie?

Those dicks.

How many Asian movies does Hollywood have to destroy before they stop?

Book - Movie - Manga are all great.

I love this movie it is one of my favorites, it is not a horror movie, but an awsome movie, and I didn't know that they where re-making it for the U.S., I also hope they don't screw it up because it is one of a kind......oh and I do own part two it aint even close to matching part one but it is ok...........

OK...hit enter too quick!! This is one of my all time favorites. With this being said, the only thing I could do without is the "teen love" scenarios they did for every other character.

Other than that...this is a must watch film. I also agree with the rest of the group...I hope Americanizing this film does not make a mockery out of the original!!

Definitely rates as a action/horror flick.

BR and the sequel are classic!
