"Life is a game. So fight for survival and see if you're worth it."

At its most basic level, Battle Royale is a combination of Lord of the Flies and The Running Man; utilising the time-worn concept of a group of people who are conscripted, equipped with weapons and forced to kill or be killed until only one contestant remains.

Over the top in some parts, but it's highly enjoyable.

"Gogo Yubari's mini-sword is a tribute to Takako Chigusa's jackknife; Chiaki Kuriyama wears the same schoolgirl outfit in both films; The scene where Go-Go stabs a man in the crotch and asks him if he still wants to "penetrate her" is a homage to Chiaki Kuriyama's infamous scene in 'Battle Royale'."

Movies I Think Should Be Adapted into TV Series (20 movies items)

"In a futuristic world where the government is worried about population control. One high school class is selected for Battle Royale; a program in which a group of teenagers are dropped off on an island and forced to kill each other. This could make for an interesting and violent action/thriller series."

"The recycling apparently goes back even further. There was an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie called the Running Man, which was based on a Stephen King novel. Battle Royale did remind me of the Running Man when I watched it. "

The future kind of sucks. (362 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Students are forced to kill each other, for survival and if they try to escape they receive an electroshock or possibly something even worse. Year it takes place: Unknownish"
