Plot – Spoilers:
Battle Royale. Often imitated. Never equaled.

In a world where civil war is imminent, the adults send schoolkids to an uninhabited island to fight each other unto death. The kids that have been chosen this time seem like a bunch of friends out on a class trip. But once they’re forced into the game, simmering resentments take over, smashing their phony unity to smithereens.

The version here is the longer Director’s Cut.

    this was so good wtf. why are gore movies always so good, not the gory parts but the plot and the vagueness?

    I loved every second of this movie. Utterly ridiculous in the best possible way.

    good plot, but this is all there is to it

    after 1hr20mins i stopped watching cause it gets boring to be honest
    they clearly go quantity over quality with the killings… All night Long killings are better
