At the dawn of the new millennium Japan is in a state of near-collapse. Unemployment is at an all-time high and violence amongst the nation's youth is spiralling out of control. With school children boycotting their lessons and physically abusing their teachers a beleagured and near-defeated government decides to introduce a radical new measure: the Battle Royale Act. Overseen by a former teacher (Takeshi Kitano) and requiring that a randomly chosen school class be taken to a deserted island and forced to fight each other to the death the Act dictates that only one pupil be allowed to survive the punishment. He or she will return not as the victor but as the ultimate proof of the lengths to which the government are prepared to go to curb the tide of juvenile disobediance. One of the most controversial films of all time clever creepy and ultra-violent Battle Royale is the jewel in the crown of Japanese Shock Cinema.
