This film was actually released in Japan in 2000, but wasn’t available to the US until 2010 due to the violent and shocking story of high schoolers stranded on a remote island and forced to murder each other to survive. Hailed by critics as “a vicious take-off on reality TV,” Battle Royale performs an expert balancing act between a dark satire and a wildly entertaining thriller.
