Three years after the failure of the last BR program, a second act is forged and a class of students are sent to an island with one objective: kill international terrorist Shuya Nanahara.
Though it is implied that Ai Maeda's character is younger than her sister, Aki Maeda's character, in real life it is the other way around.
The thing people fear most isn't dying, it's being forgotten.
During the gunfight between the terrorists and the students, in the rundown building, a cable can be seen supporting Kurosawa.
Towards the end of the credits a flag is shown, followed by black and white stills from the action sequences in the movie and then a black and white photo of the whole class that participated in the BR2 act, then another BW still of Nanahara and his comrades, and lastly a BW shot of director Kinji Fukasaku.
When the theatrical film received a negative reaction, a re-edited version entitled "Battle Royale II: Revenge" was released onto video. This new cut restores over 20 minutes of character development, features improved special effects, and expands on the story's thematic elements. The extended version was released to a more critical acclaim.
