Good Movie, not better than BR1, but still worth a watch!
I enjoyed Battle Royale II, although it was even more far fetched than BR1. The battle scenes are great and although love is a pretty constant theme throughout the movie, it does not spoil it. At some points in the movie, it becomes somewhat ridiculous how the characters live, but thats how any good action movies go! eg Die Hard, True Lies, Lethal Weapon etc.
I think it is worth a watch, it doesn't quite have the individuality of BR1, but it continues the story.
