This is the full version of BATTLE ROYALE UK.



SYNOPSIS
The world is at war. Military casualties are high, and the government are considering compulsory armed service. To test the effectivness of 16-20yr old men in combat, the government set up an experiment on an abandoned residential island outside London. 12 college mates arrive thinking they are taking part in a new reality TV show. By the time they realise the truth it is too late. They are told the rules of the experiment:

1.They have two hours to kill each other. The last one left alive wins.
2.If more than one person is alive at the end of the 2 hours, they all die.
3. If they refuse to play, they all die.

They then must find weapon packs scattered around the island to defend themselves. Packs are random, containing anything from knives to machine guns. They then must work out who they can trust, and how they are going to survive.



NOTE TO THOSE WHO VOTE ON FXHOME MOVIES: I know this is a long film, and it is tempting to skip sections if you havent got time to watch it all, but please don't give it a rating or comment if you haven't watched the whole film.


NOTE TO THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN THE ORIGINAL FILM: When i posted the trailer on this site, a lot of people asked if this would be similar to the original in look, story etc. Its not. It's not based on BR, It's inspired by it. The tone of the film is completely different. Some people have lightsabers cos it seemed like a cool idea for a weapon. The premise is the same, but the film is a different take on the concept, just like all the star wars tributes, so please don't criticise the film because it isn't made in the style of the original.

FOREWARD: This is the first film i've made since discovering AlamDv, so the film was a chance for me to screw around with FX and try out new stuff. The film is pretty low on plot, with not much of the synopsis above actually mentioned in the film which i regret, but it was just a bit of fun. PS. critisicm welcome as always, but please dont feel the need to mention every shot with a mistake in it or tripods left in shot, cos i know theyre there!


ENJOY

wow, this is HUGE. Is it entirley necessary to have it that big (I think it might seriously reduce the # of people who can actually watch it)

It's 47 minutes long. It's never going to be a small download, unless chuter cuts it down into smaller segments.

Anyway, I really rather enjoyed this one. Starts off shakily but becomes more and more confident as it goes along. Acting is ropey, but that's only to be expected really, given it was a bunch of mates. Having said that, they all handled themselves in the action scenes well, and there were a couple of guys who delivered performances that were noticeably better.

Brilliant use of your locations, really superb. Stopped it from being the generic 'backyard movie' and turned it into something really interesting. You actually used the scenery properly, too.

Camerawork was a bit iffy at the start, but from about halfway through it became very stylish. It worked particularly well during the action, where the energetic camerawork really added to the excitement. One bit that sticks in my mind in particular is the chase over all the overturned boats - that was fantastic. Brilliantly shot and the two guys played it really well, and the editing and music contributed to the scene very nicely - loved the swing around on the bar down to the lower area.

Music was a mixed bag. Sometimes it worked brilliantly, other times it was intrusive or too recognisable from other films.

Overall I enjoyed it - and that's impressive, for a 47 minute movie. Much liek CX3's X3i pilot episode, I felt it added up to something greater than the sum of its parts. Sure, the lack of budget showed and there's lots of areas that needed improving - but once it's put all together, it results in a highly entertaining movie that overcomes its individual shortcomings.

Nice one.

This was pretty ambitious but on the whole, it paid off, with some very nice action scenes & blood effects.

I liked the warehouse fight around 17m, & the scene where the one guy falls over with darts in his back was very well done. A classic unexpected, suspense moment.

The saber fights were nice too, but it was odd the way the camera zoomed as the one guy turned on his double saber & the other's face remained expressionless!

Certain scenes stood out, such as the bath killing & the "last cigarette" scene. I would have liked to have seen more character development, as we see in the original BR, because I never felt connected to any of the characters in this.

Still, I applaud you for your great use of locations, & gripping series of action sequences. The camerawork was dodgy in places, but there were some also nice fast-flowing handheld camerawork. Well done biggrin

Tarn, your comment completely sums up my opinion of the film. I hate the beginning. we only had about 15 minutes to film it, as some of the cast had to go etc, so it was really rushed and a bit dodgy. i agree with the music. don't know why i used the kill bill theme! i was really just screwing around. The acting is dodgy in places, but i wanted this, like you said, to be a film with and for my mates. every scene was a kind of improv based on a rough outline of events i'd planned.
The whole film probly cost me about a fiver to make, and that was spent on fake blood. all props used were made or we already had.
also, this film had no script. in the summer, i was supposed to be making a film i'd planned, scripted etc, but i broke my collar bone, so we didnt have time to shoot it, so instead i made this.
I wanted a film that gave me freedom to screw about with alam dv in different ways and to try different techniques for the first time. i tried to make each fight scene different, but really, we were just having a laugh. Overall, this film was just a practise for the film i couldnt make at the time, but am now making. I learnt new things as filming went on, with editing and using my camera. Glad you could see it for what it is.

Very well done, but I think the person who wins should have a run in with the guy who made them play. I really dont understand what happens to the winner once this ends. Over all its a 5.

its basically an open ending, so you dont see what happens to the winner.

Yeh, theres no characters cos there was no script. i do regret that. the film wasn't supposed to happen, it was just a side project while i put the other film on hold cos of my collar bone so thats why its hardly got any dialouge.

out of curiosity, apart from opening 10mins, which are the areas with dodgy camera work?

glad you enjoyed it, cheers for the comments

It isn't worth being too critical, but there was shaking I didn't like in a few parts, & some framing of characters that I disliked too, mostly around 32min mark. But don't worry about it.

For scenes that you want to be flowing, but without so much shaking, I recommend a Monopod (get one from Jessops). It's a one-legged tripod razz & folded up beneath the camera, lends a nice bit of weight so shots are less shaky. It's also nice if you want to do lots of steady pans but don't want to spend so much time setting up tripods.

Well I just got done watching this and I thought it was great. I didn't quite get the ending but it was still really good. The blood looked great. This looked like a well thought out movie, im surprised to hear it didn't have a script. The music and camera angles were really good. Well done.

I dunno if this is the best movie on this site, but its close. This was the only FXHome movie that actually made me feel for the characters and want to watch the movie, eager to find out what would happen next. I didnn't sit there analyzing the camera angles or the acting, as I usually do when watching movies from the fxhome cinema, no, I was happy just enjoying the movie. I think the content and the story of some movies on this site are better than this, but overall, if you averaged everything in - quality of effects, realism the movie, acting, angles, camera quality, color grading (if any), choreography and realism of fighting (I actually felt as if that guy was suffering when he got punch several times in the face by the psycho dude in black), dialogue, sound quality, choice of background music, etc - from a critic's viewpoint, this movie stand out among all the rest. One of the greatest movies I've seen. Bravo.

I know I'm not a Gold User, but 5/5 from me.

I really thought that this film touched me. I wanted to tell them all to listen to the guy who knew a way out and get out of there. I actually thought the editing wasn't too bad. Good use of soundtracks. I especially liked the Kill Bill music near the middle of the film. Loved your locations. Your use of effects is by far the best element of the film. One question though, what plugin did you use for the matrix bullet trail during the gunfight? I looked through all of them, and none of them look as good as yours. Hoping for an answer. Good Job, 4/5. (only because, even though it added to the tension and realism of the film, I'm not a fan of heavy profanity. Especially the 'f' word. ) Still, really good job. Really looking forward to more. smile

Ok it worked when I tried it again (the next day). Great film. Awesome camera work and great music. I was wondering the whole time who would be the winner, always changing my mind of who it would be. The gunshot at the end made me jump, for some reason I was expecting him not to shoot. I gave it a 5

thankyou for all the really great comments. much appreciated.

atom- sorry about the swearing, since the dialouge was improvised, i didnt notice how much swearing their was until i edited each take together. i agree it's over the top. the bullet trail is gpmovie's one under guns called "bullettrail" but i blurred it a bit so it looked less pixelated.

PhLogan- glad that made you jump!

ben3308- love the way you reffered to the guy in black as a psycho! brilliant!

Yep, same happened with me. That sequence was held just long enough so that you started to think "it's going to be ok..." and then, just as you'd relaxed a little, BLAM!

Very effective. I'm looking forward to watching it again, which says a lot, considering its length. There are a few sequences in the 2nd half that really impressed me, and I want to write some more about them.

Chuter - was the film shot in chronological order? Because it definitely seems to get more and more accomplished as it goes along.

yeh.roughly. we started in autum. if you watch, you can slowly see the leaves disappearing. the day before we finished the film, half the location was covered in snow, so we had to wait a few days for it to clear. but yeh, theres a definate learning curve. i was editing each scene as i went along, so when it came to filming i knew what shots worked and what didnt. like i said, this was a real learning experience. but basically,yeh it was, except for a few scenes here and there

I liked this, even though I didn't quite understand what was going on. That was because I couldn't understand a word the masked individual in the beginning said to the guys because he was wearing a mask, and the music drowned him out.

Just as Tarn said, I thought the music worked sometimes, but didn't work at all others.

And the way you used the locations was really nice.

What sort of camera did you shoot it on? It sometimes seemed like you used more than one. You had some really nice uses of depth of field and focus pulls in there.

Rating this is hard because there were a lot of things I liked about it, but there were a lot of things I didn't like about it. And it did definitely get better toward the end. So I think I'm going to give it a 4, but it should really be closer to a 3.5. Rounded up for ya. biggrin

I enjoyed watching this; between this and Career in Crime (the two long movies), I liked BRUK better. The camera work was for the most part good, as was the editing. I thought the music overall was good, but at some points could have been dubbed down a bit.

For a lot of the movie, I had trouble telling what exactly was going on. However, you conveyed the whole mood well, I think. It made me feel as if the people had no idea what was going on or why they were doing anything, which I'm sure is what you were aiming for.

Also, it was like this in combat situations. Normally, I would say "this is lame" whenever one guy kicks a gun out of another's, when the guy with the gun is aiming right at him. But it worked in this, since none of the guys would be trained with weapons, plus they would have trouble just shooting their friends without hesitating.

Most of the action was well done, especially the lightsaber fights. The gun battles got a bit boring though, after the first two or so, as most entailed one or two people just shooting over and over, and barely moving at all.

The story was good for the most part. Better that you improvised on lines, as they sound more genuine when done this way; but way too much cussing. I also would have liked to see a bit more character development, although I'm glad you didn't stop the whole movie at the beginning to get a rundown of each person. This was sort of a lose-lose situation. smile

Overall, I very much enjoyed this. I would give it a 4.5, but a few flaws hamper it from a perfect 5. So I'll give it a 4.

By the way, what song did you use in the trailer?

Gd work chuter,

Lots of good stuff here: there are sum excellent stylistic moments, good choreography and a nice variety of the locations.
However, some of the acting and the dialogue(i know it was improvised so was probably hard to sort out) is a wee bit embarassing sometimes and some of the music is jus a bit boring cos ive heard the tracks so many times.
All in all I think you've definitely acheived sumthing here, it is not a masterpiece but it shows potential for what you could acheive.
I can't really decide on a rating but I think I'll go with 4.

P.S. Great blood, any special recipe you used? And also one of the best effects (partly to do with the clever way it was edited and the music) is when contestant 9 gets splatted with the shotgun. How did you do this?

i liked this movie alot, the story was scary, to me. but i liked all the special fx. the camera shots, the sound. most of the music was right on, but i noticed some was just playing that did not flow. but other than that everything was awsome. i just wished that the kids would be like "lets all go get wepons, meat back here, and kill the dude with the mask" lol
any way, can you give me a link to all the matrix sounds you used?
i really liked when that weight fell off that barrel and it stopped, and how the sound kinda comes back when it hits (really cool).
good job enjoyed it
peace out

Aculag- i know it isn't very well explained what is happening, that and
alot of other things bug me about the film, including some music
choices. It was shot with one Canon Xl1s. I found the best way to
get a good depth of field was to position the camera at a distance
and zoom in to the subject. We only had one camera, so we had
to do alot of takes for some scenes.

Lloyd66- Once again, sorry about the swearing, it wasn't intentional. The
music in the trailer is "Bishop's countdown" from Aliens. It's
used in a ridiculous amount of trailers these days, but its my
favourite piece by James Horner.

Ufbasser- Wow. don't think it deserves that title, but happy you enjoyed it
man!


terrytate- The flowing blood was a mixture of blue/yellow and red food
colouring. the chunky blood was egg yolk and food colouring
and the shotgun death was a bit haggard. It only looks awful if
watched frame by frame, but it I essentially just strapped a
large explosive to Jon, and surrounded it in baloons full of
blood. then lit it and ran. wouldnt reccomend it!

Hello everyone, I am the person who is hosting BRUK for chuter.

It's a big file, hosting it has been difficult, getting it online in the first place took weeks as I have a poor ISP.

As it is 158mb and has been downloaded nearly 180 times, it has crashed my hosting company's server and has destroyed my monthly bandwith. It will be offline until further notice, possibly until the end of the month. I apoligize for any inconvinence.

Ya I really wanted to see this film too, it sounds really good. But by the time I had found it, it was already down. Unfortunately I have a 56 kb modem so it would take forever anyway, but I would let my computer sit online forever just to download it smile .

But now I can't even do that sad . Bummer. Ooooo I got an idea! Chuter you wanna burn the film on DVD then swim over here to America, then run all the way to Ohio and deliver it to me on my front doorstep!? Thanks I'd appreciate it biggrin .

Make sure you don't get the DVD wet though... wink

*waits in anticipation*

I just finished watching this while eating breakfast. I liked it a lot. Any complaints I might have had have been mentioned by others already so no need to cover that here. keep up the good work.

Why dont you compress the movie a bit more and then put it on a server on http://www.125mb.com

Then everybody could watch it! biggrin

i tried compressing it for ages. this was by far the best i could get it, and the quality is still poor. i'd rather not post it with any lower quality. i used cleaner which is superb. i think 47 mins into 150mb isnt bad

If you compress it again with the same settings, but half frame rate, that should ease bandwidth a bit. If you offer both versions, probably more than half the people who download it will download the lower version, and thus wouldn't use as much bandwidth.

Yeah I really wanna see this but the link is down. I actually have a copy Battle Royale, the original japanese version and its like the most amazing movie ever. If you haven't seen Battle Royale out there, I STRONGLY reccomend finding a way of getting it. If this movie is on the same premise of Battle Royale, yeah than I'll have to start out by giving it a 3 just because I know it has the same basis of it. Anyways, I really hope you find a way of getting the link up and soon Chuter, I really, really wanna see this and I will rate you well.

No one. The number 2 movie (Gabriel in the Shadows) left the chart because it had been up for 30 days.
