HUGE DISCLAIMER: If you haven't watched this, then you won't get any of it, and if you do decide to watch it, be warned that it isn't exactly for everyone, and will shock most people.(You have been warned.)

I had just got done watch Battle Royale, and I must say it is one of the best movies I've seen to date. Not only does it portray things shockingly accurate, it makes you really question "What would I do if I was there?". I for one, refuse to answer that question and for obvious reasons. (If you've seen it that is.) I'm actually curious to other peoples opinions on this movie, and would like to hear them! Or in this case, read them, but you get my point.

On a side note: You may disagree with me, however if you actually do take a look at Japans youth you might get why I said it portrays it shockingly accurate.

I saw the special version with extra scenes, also known as the directors cut. Also did a major piece of coursework on it for film studies in my college days.

I recommend it, many these days will say it's an older hunger games. While the two do share a similarity, there are enough differences to view them separately.

I found it to be a great insight into the youth vs the old, the fear of a nation failing and the destruction of freedom.

Yeah, the books are usually always better than the movie, although I'm much more of a movie person, I might just give the book a try since I enjoyed the movie so much.

I'm going to be perfectly honest... i didn't think the acting was that great in the movie, but i thought just about everything else was done really well. I read the manga and i think that was also really good, if gives a better look into the characters thoughts than the movie does, but i might just be nit-picking here....
If i were in that situation, i would probably go crazy, start trying to killing people, and then be taken down not long afterward but much more capable and physically active people within the first three hours of it starting.
