Before Squid Game or even the Hunger Games, Japanese provocateur Kinji Fukusaku brought the world this bloody dystopian teenage fight to the death. A class of ninth-graders are trapped on an island and forced to fight to the last student or face the detonation of explosives around their necks. The legendary actor/director Takeshi Kitano co-stars in this ultra-violent, darkly hilarious, and melodramatic satiric thrill ride!
