Battle Royale is awesome. <3. I got into it a while ago, and I really like the movie. Not quite as much as the book, but it's still very good. I was a little scared at first (especially when that guy's head got tossed through the window) but I can sit through it now without flinching...much, anyway. Except whenever someone got their throat slit. Still can't look at that.

BRII is...okay. It's obviously not as good as the first one, but it's not that terrible. I agree that there should've been more background to the characters. Some of them died before I even figured out who they were. And you had the whole escaping-from-the-base thing where they just ran into the light and got out okay. But I don't hate it that much. I think Shiori was pretty cool.

But, um, did anyone else notice in BRII how the action actually fades out and back in whenever the characters had to say their last words? I'm serious, I was listening to one of the kids' death speeches, and the second he died, the shooting noises started again. I was sitting there like, "Wtf man?!"

I remember reading soon after BR2 was released that Kinji Fukusaku only managed to direct one scene before he died and his son Kenta took over, but that Kenta wouldn't say which scene it was.

Does anyone know if the mystery has since been solved?

It was the scene were Ai Maedas Character played the Piano and her father (Beat Takeshi) comes in with a present to her

Probably why that was one of the good scenes in BR2. I personally didn't like BR2 and I think it kinda of wreaked the first one. I remember when I saw the first 5 minutes of it at an Australasian convention and I was like OMG I have to see that. It was one of the things that got me more into Japan and anything Japanese.

As for hollywood it would end up like Lost or something. Maybe they could remake the second one... maybe. I just wonder what BR2 would be like if i was directed by Kinji Fukusaku. Just thinking about it now, if he was to not remake it but just more like make it as if it was another group of students. So just using the concept rather then remaking it.

I have fears about that as well.
If only you could download Goto Maki. I would be a happy man.

I think it would be better if Hollywood just made a movie about "Lord of the Flies".

I know. but i didn't like the 1963 version because it wasn't a straight adaption of the book and i personally think the 1990 version sucked!

Never mind i just don't like the idea of remaking a movie just because someone doesn't like to read subtitles!

Don't sweat it, it's all good. I actually agree with you on this part of it:

The battle royale movie wasn't that good. I missed the backgrounds of the characters.
But the story is quite good. I really enjoyed the book.
The book was more detailed about almost everything. And the most dangerous but beautiful girls could be H!P girls in your imagination  :lol:
btw, I read the book before i saw the movie. Because of that you can understand some scenes in the movie better. For example the perfect couple committing suicide

Yep, there was a Battle Royale II. You're not missing much if you don't see it. The first one was definitely much better.

Yep, the first Battle Royale is a definite must-see.
The second one wasn't all that much... I found it to be meh, but then sequels tend to be like that.
"Yo, microphone check one, two, what is this? The five foot assassin with the roughneck business"
"Are you my mummy?"
"Hello, Sweetie."
"Who's scruffy looking?"
