Battle Royale – Top 5 ScenesAuthor: Jon Martin | Saturday, March 27th, 2010 |
5. The Instructional Video
Upon viewing the film for the first time, I didn’t realize how cool it would be until this scene. Nothing like a cheery Japanese woman telling you what weapons you’ll use to kill your classmates. I also like Kitano’s comment when he kills one of the students “no whispering!”.Click “Read More” for the rest of the list
4. Death of Nobu
Without much introduction Nobu is killed off quite early in the film. It doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking watching all the other students push him away. Chances are, most people would do the same thing, what can you do though? The kid is about to explode.
3. “Let’s Work Together!”
After struggling to find safety, Shuya and Noriko meet up with Kawada. Luckily he spares them, but far in the distance they hear the cries of fellow students. “Let’s work together!”, two girls scream into a loudspeaker, sadly those are some of their last words.
2.”You scarred my face…”
This is one of the most intense scenes in the film, it was also a really intense scene in the novel. In the novel she stabs out both of his eyes and castrates him. It’s not too far off from the film actually.
1. The Lighthouse Massacre
This scene plays out like pure poetry. The attempted poisoning, the realization, mistrust in the group, and finally a massacre. I won’t spoil it any more.Youtube Version
