Expansion Needed[edit]

Expansion needed for this article - a great deal of it. Most of the sections for the first BR could and perhaps should be given to this one - its little more than a stub really.

Think that may have been me who wrote that, a lot of work is needed to bring this article up to scratch anyway even now Addyboy 15:12, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Screen shots[edit]

I can help. I'll add more content, such as screenshots, a list of characters, etc (probably in a couple of days). --Henrickson 20:43, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

I've added some stuff... Anybody like it? I'm still working on the list of characters. --Henrickson 06:25, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Revenge[edit]

Should this either be a new article or just a large expansion to this one? Either way, the extended (and far superior) version is now out, and this needs to be covered.

Right, that was me before, yes, but I forgot to sign (ages ago I made that). But it still needs done. If I don't have the time to do it myself, does anyone else want to? Caissa's DeathAngel 17:09, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I'll bump this - anybody? *doesn't have the time himself*Addyboy 15:11, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

8 million dead WTF?[edit]

There needs to be a note that this "death toll" by US bombing is some fantasy number the screenwriter must have pulled out of his ass. When I heard this line while watching the movie I was shocked by the historical ignorance. The United States hasn't killed 8 million people by bombing. If anything, 8 million may be the number of total civilian and military deaths that could be attributed to the Korean and Vietnam Wars, WWII, Persian Gulf Wars, African interventions etc. This includes all actions by the North and South Korean governments/military, the North and South Vietnamese governments/military, and the governments of Communist China, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, the USA and maybe a few more countries. Also no context is given for US interventions, I suppose the US bombed Japan during WWII because they felt like it, not because the imperial government slaughtered 6 million civilians in 6 years?

Consid4ring what the US Government has done, Roosevelt allowing Pearl Harbor to happen? "Terror Bombing" on German population centers by Allied forces? The Government lies, and especially considering Operation Northwoods, his estimate may not be so far out.is doing and plans to do, I think that number is a reasinable number, especially considering all the American Imperialism this government has done (ex. Phillipines, Puerto Rico, Nicaruga, etc). Don't forget the atom bomb tests done on US soil and all the deaths from cancer, leukemia, etc. Or, historical context? -SWF


"Roosevelt allowing Pearl Harbor to happen?" Are your really that paranoid or just stupid? There is no evidence to support your claim. Lets not forget how much death Japan's Imperial Army caused in the rest of Asia during WWII, the bombing they committed on Pearl Harbor, and on its own island by telling the citizens of Okinawa to commit suicide and providing them with the weapons to do so. Also, Japan's constant attempts to cover up its war time atrocities.

What the fuck dude. A little bit irrelevent, don't you think? Troubleshooter 00:09, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Keep in mind this movie is based in a fictional future where more war and uprisings have happened....there's a back story there that can explain the larger firgure on the death toll... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.231.254.176 (talk) 08:02, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Reaction[edit]

Referring to the 'Reaction' section, and I quote: "The sequel was panned by critics as inferior to the original, stating that the original's fresh concept, innocent characters, and occasional dark humor outshines the teen-angst driven action of the sequel."

Where does that "fact" come from? At the moment it comes across as an "impression" of the overall reaction, which probably shouldn't be in there.

don't know but, do know it was panned due to inferior direction, not that the average director is near capable of following in the footsteps of Kinji Fukasaku. --AlexOvShaolin 05:11, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
That is only an opinion of some critiques. Others bore different perception. It is a statement that does not stand to scrutiny as a fact, but marely one particular take on the subject. The sentense has to be neutralized as a wiki article; an opinion cannot be presented as a fact. Jgrey 08:26, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm not going to dwell on the subject, however Kinji Fukasaku is widely recognized as one of the most influential directors that ever lived. In other words, its more than a matter of taste. --AlexOvShaolin 02:44, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Trivia[edit]

I think it might be worth mentioning in the trivia that the beach landing scene was ripped almost entirely from Saving Private Ryan, especially the fact that nearly the entire scene was shot with a hand camera. 02:32, 2 December 2006 (UTC)Chris Redfield

nanking[edit]

When I saw this movie I wondered why their teacher said nothing about what the Japanese Imperial Army did in Nanking and the rest of China in the 30's and 40's —Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.153.14.128 (talk) 05:03, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Battle Royale 3[edit]

Is there such film as Battle Royale 3? Someone keeps adding it in though there is no mention of it in any searches or on Battle Royale fansites. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.143.122.225 (talk) 22:30, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Why so much European stuff[edit]

Curious to know why all the titles are transliterated European words. Battle (English), Royale (French?), Requiem (Latin), Blitz (German). Has the Japanese language gotten that Europeanized? 50.180.19.238 (talk) 04:14, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
