Battle Royale (16-Dec-2000)|
Director: Kinji Fukasaku
Writer: Kenta Fukasaku
From novel: Battle Royale by Koushun Takami
Keywords: Action/Adventure, Hacking, Explosions
Dystopian thriller follows the struggles of a group of Japanese teenagers forced to take part in a gladiatorial deathmatch.
Legislation enacted by a totalitarian dictatorship in charge of a dystopian near-future Japan establishes the annual "Battle Royale", a grisly match between teenagers that does not end until only one student remains alive amidst the carnage. Survivors' neck collars will explode if more than one is alive at the end. Tale reminiscent of Lord of the Flies and certainly inspiration for The Hunger Games (2012).
