I first saw Battle Royale in the original Japanese, without subtitles, and that was one hell of a scarey movie, a whole bunch of Japanese teenagers and older folks barking at each other, and using weapons to make much bloody.
Now I’ve gotten the DVD with the how you say, koni chi wah, English sub-titles, and you know what, it doesn’t make a whole lot more sense. The basic plot is that a couple of dozen of high school students get put on an island to kill each other, with the survivor, well, surviving. That you know about this movie is because Quentin Tarantino used one of the actresses from Battle Royale in Kill Bill Vol. 1 (and some of the scenario). I think I liked it better when the movie was called A Clockwork Orange.Powered by Sidelines
