Battle Royale earned critical acclaim and, especially with its DVD releases, drew a large global cult following. It is often regarded as one of Fukasaku's best films, and one of the best films of the 2000s. In 2009, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino praised Battle Royale as the best film he had seen in the past two decades and deems it as his favorite film.
Battle Royale became a cultural phenomenon, and is considered one of the most influential films in recent decades, having been highly influential in global popular culture. Since the film's release, the term "battle royale" has been redefined to refer to a fictional narrative genre and/or mode of entertainment inspired by the film, where a select group of people are instructed to kill each other off until there is a triumphant survivor. It has inspired numerous media, including films, books, animation, comics, visual novels, and video games; the battle royale game genre, for example, is based on the film.
Many fans and movie critics alike regard Koushun Takami's "Battle Royale", published in 1999 as the influence of Suzanne Collin's "The Hunger Games" story, published in 2008. While it's arguably debateable there's a lot of glaring similiarities to the dystopian story. Some had called The Hunger Games as a branch story of Battle Royale.

This is the バトル・ロワイアル 特別篇 Battle Royale: Special Edition aka, "Director's Cut" which was released in 2001 that includes 8 minutes of bonus footage:
SPOILER ALERT !
-Flashbacks to a basketball game which is used as a framework for the entire story.
-A flashback that expands on a likely contributor to Mitsuko Souma's mental illness or sociopathy. She comes home from school to find her mother drunk with a strange man, who tries to molest her. She then pushes him down the staircase to his death.
-Three epilogues (referred to as "requiems"). The first is an extension of the basketball scene, showing the students of Class 3-B winning their game. It also spotlights Mitsuko's apparent social anxiety and alienation from the classmates in 3-B. The second is a vision of Nobu telling Shuya to take care of Noriko (a replay of a hallucination seen earlier in the special version of the film). The third is a scene between Kitano and Noriko, who talk casually by a riverbank; parts of this scene (a dream sequence) also appear in the original version of the film, but with the dialogue muted whereas in the requiem it is audible and reveals a friendship or other relationship that may or may not have existed between Noriko and Kitano.
-Added shots of the lighthouse after the shoot-out.
-Added reaction shots in the classroom, and extensions to existing shots.
-Extra CGI throughout the film.
