It's okay. The book and the comics are ten times better.

 "Everybody has got something to hide except for me and my RALLYMONKEY"  is misinformed.

how's the sequel?
Leone admirer says it sucks with a capital "S". I happen to have a strong respect for LA's opinions (they rarely fail me) so I doubt I will try and catch it (especially since I didn't care much for the first).

If your interested you can see the sequel on youtube.

The sequel was one of the biggest hits of that year in Japan and it will (along with the original) not be getting a release of any kind in the US anytime soon. Particularly the opening shots of the two WTC like buildings being blown up and the protagonists being trained by Al Qaieda. Also there's some very anti american sentiments running throughout the film. The first 45 minutes are great and very intense although it falls apart after that. The film was began by the great and respected Kinji Fukasaku whom QT greatly admired, but finished by his son after Kinji died during filming.

Just had enough time to quickly log onto this forum tonight and saw this, so I hope I can return the great compliment by saying that I have a strong respect for Firecrackers opinions  :)

Battle Royale 1 is alright but it's not that good compared to the novel or comics. I'd give it a 6 or so. It is an interesting film though, I'll bet the actors had fun with that. Being 17 myself, I'd love to be in a film like that.  :P

Battle Royale 2 started out okay but it got provesively worse as the film went on. There were an interesting group of characters but then the leader of that group was gunned down by a sniper. The moment the sniper gets him, after that, the film only starts to get bad. Oh and the main protagonist of that film....beyond irritating.  >:( The film was a bit silly but if you like action, well, the first bit is pretty good I think.
