I loved battle royale, so you can imagine that I was excited to see the sequel but nothing could have prepared me for what a damp squid this sad sad movie was. It's just so predictable all the characters you know are going to survive in the end are given screen time for moody emotional (over acting) brooding looks, I can't believe people are that dumb that we need to have it rammed down our throats instead of a more subtle approach.The story line is so muddy and horrible to follow and above all its not entertaining at all, it's actually painful to watch nanahara limp around whinging, the teachers outrageously bad bad bad over acting and such a dissapointing ending it makes u wonder why have they done this?. Also i find it amusing that a film that has many irrelvant pops at america copies so blatantly from western movies,I mean that teacher was so westernised it was untrue who did he think he was rambo? Also its funny but i wonder where nanahara got his hair dye from cos in all his seriousness he still managed to get his roots done, but I guess as an international terrorist he liked to look his best. Even not comparing this movie with battle royale, on it's own worth it's still a sloppy rubbish movie, it feels like 3 movies were haphazardly scotch taped together and just thrown on the screen any old way.tut tut tut.Plus the blood and gore just looks artificial, totally unlike that in the first one you can almost see the digital pixels of blood shed.
