No real relation to the first movie.
1 January 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The sequel from the instant classic Battle Royale. In this movie 42 kids had to kill each other for there own survival. Nice action, good manga style and good story. But this new movie has no real relation to the first one. The only relation is that there are kids and that they have the neckbombs. But the mission now is that the kids have to find the winners from the first movie. But sadly enough, they get dropped on a beach where, you get a small Saving Private Ryan beachlanding. Then they arrive at the enemy's base. They make an alliance and they fight against the Japanse gouverment. This whole thing happends in one big line, without any real connection about kids having to kill eachother and the whole concept of killing your friends. Maybe the movie would be interresting if the kids really had to search a big place and that Nanahara (winner from the first movie) had to run for his live and had to kill the kids that where chasing him. Only cool thing was that the kids didn't where in couples, if one of the two was further away then 50 meters, the neckbomb would explode. Only this feature is only used once when a little girl is to affraid to leave her hiding location.

The movie starts of nice, had some nice features but the whole story is too blund and rapes the whole concept. Sad.
