Three years have passed since the infamous Battle Royale massacre, and one of the kids that survived the bloody game - Shuya Nanahara - has set up a terrorist group, declaring war on Japan's adults. A new game is established by the government, and the 42 randomly-selected school kids are this time given the task of storming the terrorists' island fortress to kill Nanahara within three days - or they themselves will be terminated.

The film had great potential for being a good watch; with it's plot set up as so, however, this movie was a big let down for me. I relatively liked the first Battle Royale, and I was excited when I saw there was a second one, especially since the plot looked pretty good, but it turns out I had just wasted 2 hours of my life.

As mentioned, it had potential to be good, but it was draggy, boring, and somewhat unrealistic with the way people handled being shot (it was the same in the first movie, but I dismissed it). Which brings me to acting.

The acting was ok; the multiple bullets in their chests proving no match as they continued on to do, what I would call, laborious tasks such as dragging another person's body, and shooting some more people while running wildly. So, I guess they're stronger than the average person?


Overall, I don't really have a doubt that this would've been clicked onto my 'dropped' section of the list had I not developed the no-dropping-rule for my list. I even had a text conversation during the movie, if that tells you anything. It didn't keep me entertained for more than 5 minutes at best, the plot turned sour and boring pretty quick, and it just became a hard task to finish out the movie.

STORYLINE:
I give this movie a four star merely for its effort of a potentially good plot concept of bravery and freedom but the plot this time round seemed off key compared to the first one. I literally spent most of the film feeling like i had missed an explanation; especially when I caught myself realising that it was unnecessary explanation. This happened so often it took me like twice as long to complete the movie.

CHARACTERS:
I just did not find myself getting attached to any characters even those that felt like they were placed there as mains.

ACTING:
Most of the actors overacted so much it felt like the film was filled with first tie actors. I would advise that you use imagination to in vision the supposed emotions meant to be portrayed.


LIKED – the closest thing to make me like this movie was the authenticity of the first student’s head being blown off; probably the best acting of the whole movie.
DISLIKED – They teacher’s (Riki Takeuchi) speech at the beginning set up the bad acting to come, but at least some of the students had slightly better acting abilities than their older counterparts.

CONCLUSION:
You should watch this drama if you enjoy genres such as war – high school - child actors – bad acting – crying – friends – freedom - students – suicide – tragedy – gore – hope – institution – sequels.
I am just gratefully to get it out of the way and off my “to watch list”.
