One dead. 41 to go.

Battle Royale is back. It's time to return to the island and kill your friends, because the cult Japanese movie that defines twisted action and sickening violence is ready to shock you all over again.

In a world where teenagers have no respect and adults are losing control there can be 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, cross-bows, machetes and dynamite. 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano (Violent Cop, Zatoichi) 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.

ok lets start with the steelbook...its one of the better made ones so you dont feel its going to fall apart in a hurry..
the artwork on the front is simple but i like it..its also engraved..
fantastic artwork on the inside with a picture of all the cast and comes with a tidy booklet...the back is not engraved but still looks good..
the picture on a whole is alot more sharper than the dvd and could only see a few signs of grain here and there in the night seens..
the dts soundtrack works well with all the wright sounds coming through the right channels..
all in all would recommend this to any steelbook collector and asian movie buff..
