KIDS KILLING KIDS
This is basically where the two movies are most similar, and where you really know, if you weren’t sure already, why “Battle Royale” totally rips off “The Hunger Games”. In “The Hunger Games”, teenagers are forced to fight to the death in an arena, with only one possible victor. In “Battle Royale”, teenagers are abducted and forced to fight on an island, where they can’t leave until only one of them is left alive. Basically, the exact same premise! They just swapped an actual island for a futuristic Gamemakers-controlled “island”.
