I am one of the few who loves this movie.
I will not give it five stars.
There were aspects of this movie I hated. It was too unrealistic how Takuma and his friend didn't hug when they reunited near the very end. Embraces should be seen when one reunites with their friends after they believed him to be most likely dead.
Or how one of the boy's older sister was part of the Wild Seven, and his way of saying goodbye to her was saying how he won't ever forget her. His sister cried as she kept her back turned on him. I rewatched that part on Netflix earlier and teared up a bit, but still.
What kind of siblings don't share at least a hug when one of them might die in an intense battle? Way too unrealistic and lame. We don't even get to see a reunion hug the first time he sees her again. We don't even get to see them have a one-on-one interaction beyond that moment.
The sister says his name as she dies, which is still a sweet moment, but my whole disapproval of this movie's case of a lack of realism when there can be is frustrating. Frustrating enough for me not to give this film five stars.
But I will say the military aspect of it drew me in much more than the first movie did. Wars, military firearms, and fights on islands allure me with an intense ferocity. So, I might just say I love this movie more than I love the first Battle Royale film.
The best scene is the beach scene, of course. It was realistic how the students turned soldiers reacted to that psuedo-war scene. I loved it. Their panic was realistic, like the panic scene from them while they were in those aquatic vehicles, getting shot at.
I despise how Shuya didn't hug Noriko when they had their own reunion, too. That was another unrealistic and potential tender moment this movie's creators ruined. Another reason why I will not give this film five stars.
The final reason I won't give this film five stars is the fact the teacher having a collar attached to the Wild Seven's bomb detonation machine was not explained. This frustrates me.
Other than all that, if there is anyone with an high interest in war and the military, you should watch this film.
