I'd give it a zero if possible. Unbearable to watch. Stupid, silly, unintentionally comical. Especially that awful "Ricki" guy.

BR 2? More like ... BR... um POO!

The first Battle Royale was great.
This one is garbage.

I'll try to do this as cleanly as possible:

THE GOOD:

... um, people like, die, and stuff.

The BAD:

-The characters are ALL cliches. When they die, it's not sad and you don't care.
-The acting is amatuerish from the teenagers and adults in the film.
-The violence isn't creepy or personal like the first one. It's mostly just rushed and secondary to the movies story (AHAHAHAHA.... story!)
-The movie has political references strewn about but the exact message seems garbled. From my perspective it just seemed like they pissed on America but I think the movie was actually trying to say something. In any case, politcal messages are out of place in a movie like this.

See it if youre a BR fanatic. Otherwise, don't waste your time.

ehh

The first movie was so good and so popular they couldn't help but make a sequel. They could have just taken a bunch more kids put them on another island and let 'em go nuts. Which is basically what they did just with a new spin on it. I'm not saying you shouldn't see it, just get ready for 2 hours of how noble it is die for a cause.

Stay away at all costs!

I loved the first one. Even the peerles Riki Takeuchi is unable to redeem this steaming pile.

Watch the first one again and don't let this one get within 100 yds of your DVD player!!!
