Forty-two students, three days, one deserted Island: welcome to Battle Royale. A group of ninth-grade students from a Japanese high school have been
forced by legislation to compete in a Battle Royale. The students are each given a bag with a randomly selected weapon and a few rations of food and
water and sent off to kill each other in a no-holds-barred (with a few minor rules) game to the death, which means that the students have three days
to kill each other until one survives--or they all die. The movie focuses on a few of the students and how they cope. Some decide to play the game
like the psychotic Kiriyama or the sexual Mitsuko, while others like the heroes of the movie--Shuya, Noriko, and Kawada--are trying to find a way to
get off the Island without violence. However, as the numbers dwell down lower and lower on an hourly basis, is there any way for Shuya and his
classmates to survive?
a lot of people think the hunger games series is a straight rip of battle royale....
