Stars: Tatsuya Fujiwara, Aki Maeda, Tarô Yamamoto

Original action movie set in a future Japan where the authorities attempt to keep their rebellious youth under control by selecting troublesome classes and dumping them on an island to fight until only one remains. The concept is fairly original and Kinji Fukasaku uses it as an interesting way to explore the various relationships between the students. The action is standard enough with moderate levels of gore but it’s the performances which mark this film. Fujiwara and Maeda are excellent in the lead roles but as usual “Beat” Takeshi steals the show as the lonely teacher who has taken enough from his out-of-control underlings.
