In the early 1900's, the legendary Joe Hill emigrates with his brother to the United States. But after a short time, he loses touch with his brother. Joe gets a few jobs but is struck by all the injustice and tragedy going on. He becomes active in the forbidden union IWW, a union for workers without trades. It is forbidden to demonstrate and to speak in public but Joe gets around that by singing his manifests with the Salvation Army. He manages to get more and more people to get on strike with him but he also makes powerful enemies doing that. Finally he gets connected with a murder and during the trial he fires his lawyer and takes upon himself to become his own defender.

The 25th part to the japanes Godzilla Mothra and King Ghildarh giant monsters all out attack is better. Still this is a great movie see it.

Stunning film about young teenagers who compete in a large battle to the death against their own will. Jarring and violent, to be sure, but mature, gripping, and beautifully crafted, for its humanity as well as its powerful action scenes. This was taken very seriously in Japan (and was understandably a big hit) but went unreleased in the U.S. for more than a decade because of real school shootings; it is now considered a classic. Many feel this was the inspiration for THE HUNGER GAMES. Director's cut runs 122 minutes.
