Three years after the events of the original Battle Royale, survivor of the game Shuya Nanahara is now an internationally-known terrorist and, leading his group known as Wild Seven, is determined to bring down the government.
To counter this new threat, the government enacts the "New Century Terrorist Counter - Measure Alternative" program, (a.k.a. the Battle Royale II act), and sends the forty-two students of Shikanotoride Junior High Class 3-B to hunt Nanahara and his cohorts down in their island stronghold. Shiori Kitano, the daughter of the late headmaster of Nanahara's first Battle Royale, signs up for the program, to avenge her father. In order for the government to study the benefits of "teamwork", the new students are forced to work in pairs with their collars electronically linked so that if one of them is killed, the other dies as well. They must kill Nanahara in three days or die...
Director Kinji Fukasaku died during the making of the film and so it fell to his son Kenta to complete this apocalyptic vision, in the process turning it into an even bigger box-office smash than the original in Japan. Liberally soaked in black humour and satirical comments on current world affairs, it's set for cult status, endorsed by Tarantino in 'Kill Bill - Vol 1'. The fight for survival is on!
