Wow…I went to see Battle Royalewith Joss and it KICKS ASS!!! It really is unique in the way it takes
violence to almost manga proportions and yet manages to retain
brilliant comic humour, both slapstick (sp?) and subtle. Plus nearly
all the girls in it are fit, and all the guys are cool (and in
traditional Japanese film style they’re all really honourable until
their (inevitable) deaths.
If your squeamish, don’t watch it (or
watch the 4 minute long edited version with no violence in it).
Otherwise, it’s the best film I’ve seen this year (except maybe Crying
Freeman but that’s another story…)
