amazing film
3 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just finished this film, being a huge fan of the first, and could not believe how amazing the sequel was. First and foremost, the storylines are very different from the first. Where the first almost had a dark comedy feel to it, the second is almost apocalyptic. Getting past the rather obvious verbal abuse on the US, you see that The Wild Seven (Nanahara's terrorist group) were just a bunch of scared and lonely kids who just wanted to belong somewhere. Nanahara Shuya really had a metamorphosis from the naive idealistic teen in BRI to a stoic leader in BRII. My only advise to future watchers, watch the first one, keep an open mind, and enjoy. *oh, and give the crazy pill-popping sensei a break, he comes through :-D
