This is one of the greatest movies for those who like Japanese culture.This time its war.Kinji Fukasaku created a master piece with the first Battle royale and still surpass himself with the second. Its really a tragedy that he died during the shooting of the second .overall even if you are not a big fan of Japanese culture that movie is a must see .
P.S. to answer a previous question by someone who send a comment Kitano's daughter didn't want to find out why his father didn't love her. She wanted to killed the one who murdered her father.
