I spent the last day downloading it on Kazaa. Great screen size, too.

But, holy fuck. The movie is just... Wow. It's not a gorefest like a lot of people made it out to be. But it's just... Wow. EVERYONE must see this movie.

Word, I downloaded it after hearing about it on some website and I like it a whole bunch. The fire gunbattle was neat-o. Lets not forget it had Vic Ramano from mXc.

I think my copy's a little too dark, though. Or is that just the way it was filmed?

And I have one question, for those who have seen it. (Spoilers)

Why did it say "Mitsuko Dead?" I looked up Battle Royale II on IMDB, but it doesn't even show the actress or the character showing up again. So, why is it questioned if she died or not?

Every version I downloaded has like a blueish tint to it.

I bought a bootleg copy on eBay for $10, and it looks awsome. Theres a rumored DVD coming out, but that hasn't happened, and I doubt it will anytime soon. Theres a Reagon 0 DVD on Amazon.com, and its the official deal, but they want like $40+ for it.

www.aznfilms.com has it, which is where I got mine.

Mitsuko definitely dies. It was probably just a bad translation (you'll catch a lot of them) as you see it.

awsome link, thanks!

The production of Battel ROyale 2 is almost complete from what I understand, and it sounds evenc razier then before. They take teams of two kids and send them out to find the survivors of the first movie, who'se names escape me at the moment. I herd it will turn out more like a war movie, whatever that means.

on a related note, has anyone read the manga? http://www.tokyopop.com/dbpage.php?propertycode=BAT&categorycode=BMG

Battle Royale 2 has already been out for several months. It hasn't made it to the U.S. in bootleg versions yet though.

Word is it isn't nearly as good as the first.

It's just the story progressed from the first one, instead of repeating the events of another Battle Royale. It deals with the kids waging war against the adults. So I don't think it's a matter of it being not as good, as it is just very different.

hmm. thats strange, from what I herd (pretty much rumored summeries of the plot), a group of kids were paired up to find the survivors of the first Battle Royale movie. And the movie would have been focused on the two children running from the group of kids hunting for them. Am I wrong?

It's 4 years later. Shuya has formed a new group called Wild Seven with a few other BR winners. They blow up some towers that look pretty much like the WTC, so the government chooses a class to find and kill them. Collars are paired together, meaning that if your partner dies, then your collar blows up as well. Akin to the D-Day landing, they land and try to kill the various Wild 7 members...
