Today's weather - sunny
After pining for this sequel "Battle Royale II" for so many years, I finally got to watch this 2003 movie.

Starring Tatsuya Fujiwara, whom I just realized is the main actor from the movie series "Death Note", the remaining casts were unknown to me. Disappointingly, this movie is nowhere close to the original shown here on our screen in the year 2000. Picking up from where it ended, this sequel is at best a terrorist movie with lots of mindless shooting, poor storyline and bad acting. I guess it is true that when you have seen the best, nothing comes close. There is hardly any semblance of the fantastic original. On a love-hate scale, if I love the original with a maximum score of +10, I loathe this one at -10.

Need I say more?
