Somebody recommended this to me years ago, and I finally got around to seeing it. This violent Japanese film about a "survival game" is just awesome. The messages are also much deeper than I expected they'd be. See it, you won't be disappointed.
saw it a few years ago...good stuff
if you liked that and havent seen Lik Wong (AKA Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky )
you might want to check it out (a little more over the top though)
A young man with superhuman strength is incarcerated at a prison run by corrupt officials and seeks to use his martial arts to clean up the system
FYI...if you've ever seen the Man Show opening credits where some guy gets his whole head exploded it's from that movie
