BATTLE ROYALE

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Veteran director Kinji Fukasaku's epically violent, still-controversial and deeply influential genre masterpiece takes place in a dystopian alternate universe in a world where teenagers have no respect and adults are losing control, meaning only one solution: Battle Royale! Now, see what happens when you let a high school class loose on an island, arm them and then give them a simple choice . . . kill your friends or have them kill you; with poison, crossbows, machetes and dynamite. ‘Beat’ Takeshi Kitano is a teacher pushed to the edge by his unruly charges. Kidnapped and gassed, his class wake up with exploding metal rings around their necks. If they rebel, they could lose their heads. Now they have three days and only one is permitted to survive this grisly battle to the death. Directed by the master of 70s Yakuza thrillers Kinji Fukasaku and featuring Kill Bill star Chiaki Kuriyama, 'Battle Royale' is the movie that helped to define extreme Asian cinema in the 21st Century.
