BRII-This time is war
7 July 2003 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Three years have passed since Shuya Nanahara escaped from Battle Royale and now he is accused of participating in several terrorist attacks.

After the murder of his father, Professor Kitano, Shiori Kitano looks for vengeance and takes place in the organization of the next Battle Royale program.

Now the rules have changed, there are two teams with an equal number of members, each student is connected to another student sharing the same number, (let's say Student number 1 from A group is connected to student number 1 from B group), if one dies the other student's necklace will activate automatically causing his death. The goal is to kill Nanahara within 3 days. Will they be able to do it?

This movie is almost a war movie, combat scenes comparable with the ones in "Saving Private Ryan," it is not recommendable if you have fear of gore scenes, it has plenty. Amazing war scenes and sound track, You will enjoy every minute of the 2 hours it lasts.
