i think its a bit excessive on violence, i think of it as "lord of the flies" vs "kill bill" stuck together

i haven't seen it yet, but maybe when i'm ready to see "friends vs friends", i'll take a look at it

the manga was just better?
The manga was a whole other experience, it had feelings, it had drama, it had bloody nipples, it had violence, it had romance, it had Kendo, it had eye gaugeing, it had such heartrobbing sadness in some parts....
The Film was excelent but the manga was a masterpiece.
I wanted to give it to my literature teacher but then realised that i dont have the paper-back versions...

It was definitely violent but seriously, one of the coolest movies I've ever seen. There wasn't as much romance as there was in the manga.

It is extremely violent, though. At my library, after being requested so much, they got volume 1. But the library wouldn't get the other volumes because it was so violent.

Perhaps you should go in there and point out all the other books that have violent content (or promote violence in any way) and request that these be removed.

Better still, suggest to them that if this is their attitude, they should take every book except Spot the Dog to the town center and burn the lot of them, as there is a good chance that someone, somewhere can find something offensive in almost everything that has ever been written.

yeh i saw it three years ago pretty good movie and if ya want even more gore....watch ICHI the killer its an anime and live action movie. be warned this movie has lots of disturbing content so don't watch on a full stomach.


Battle Royale is what 'they' call "teh shit". Lord of the Flies is one of my top five books.

And I watched Ichi The Killer last week(Kyocool's MySpace was useful for something, omg ). It was gorey but a little to abstract and chaotic for me. Decent but not quite satisfying.
And I ate food the whole way through, while my buddies were horrified to find out how the movie starts. LOL



HAHA i dont know wether to thank you for that half assed compliment or feel a slight unease that you randomly look @ my myspace lol

I saw the movie a year or two ago and I actually got to read the book last summer. If you're a fan of the movie, if you ever get the chance, check out the book. There's already an English version of it out so you don't have to worry about that kind of thing.

I think its a really good movie and it brings up an excellent thought. If I was on that island, I think I wouldn't know what to do at all. It makes you think about your High School Life and what goes with it. Kou Shibasaki was really good in that movie! She's also a singer for anybody who doesn't know!

Manga was actually freeky in a way, but for some reason i just had to continue reading. I dont even think its finished, around 14 15??? and i just keep waiting for new one to come out.

How diferent is it to the drama since i havent seen it? Does it just have violence? or with sex, romance, and other things manga has?

i saw the film when it first came out (haha i was so young!) & i think it really deserves the cult classic status it has. although i prefer the book i think the film does it justice because there is only so much you can put in. i've also read the manga & i suppose in alot of ways it's more loyal to the book.

i think battle royale 2 was a dissappointing sequel but i did enjoy it - i guess its a guilty pleasure XD

aaaand who knows what the US remake it going to be like

Read the book, and a bit of the manga.

Have never seen the movie.

But Battle Royale's awesome either way.
