Editorial Reviews

Kei Kurono and his childhood friend Masaru Kato attempt to save a man who has fallen onto the train tracks but are run down by an oncoming train. However, rather than finding themselves dead, they are transported to a strange apartment in which they find a mysterious black orb known as 'Gantz'. Along with others there, they are provided weaponry and sent on missions to battle alien beings. Is this world, which tests your will to survive, a game or reality?

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best comic-book adaptation ever! August 31, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie turned out much better than I anticipated! It managed to capture the feel of the comic, while still being accessable to gantz newcomers (my wife also enjoyed it.) The extreme content from the comic has also been toned down severely. While some may see that as a negative, the film makers HAD to do it to appeal to a larger audience. I believe it makes the viewing experience much more enjoyable. So, if you are a fan of Gantz, japanese cinema, or manga/anime in general, check out this movie! *WARNING: WATCH IN JAPANESE! THE ENGLISH DUB IS INCOMPREHENSIBLY TERRIBLE!*

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute to the short-lived Anime... September 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I must first say that this movie is an Salute, Tribute or Homage to the Anime Series so, with that being said its not for everybody. That's not a bad thing though, Because as a fan of the Series and as a person who was mad they cut the series after only 2 seasons I can gladly say I enjoyed watching the Live Action Version and comparing it to the Anime. Not everyone can handle seeing an animated show filled with Sex, Gore, Violence & a Sci-Fi story line all at once but, I sure can. If you do decide to get this Live Action version rest assured the US Blu-ray version is the best quality you can find. You get a 3 disc set at a good price and it has the DVD copy with it as well. IT has the Original Japanese Language as well as a English overdub. I personally could not stand the the English Dub and I just went for original language with really great subtitles. I know I'm not telling specific details about the film itself but, that's because I really want you to buy this Blu-ray or at least go grab the Anime. I Give this movie 5 Stars and an A++! So Go Buy it, Rent it, or borrow from a friend Its worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Gantz" delivers the goods. September 22, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed the live action adaptations of "Death Note" (2 films and a side story film), "20th Century Boys" (an excellent trilogy), "Kaiji: Gambling Apocalypse" (2 films) and "The Incite Mill", then you will enjoy the live action version of "Gantz". Nice blu-ray transfer. Good film. Raw action. Breath-taking fight scene with giant majin type characters kind of reminds you of the majin fight scene in "Sucker Punch" but more intense. Bring on a blu-ray release for the sequel "Gantz: Perfect Answer".

4.0 out of 5 stars "It's a new morning. A morning of hope." September 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
That above statement is actually part of the optimistic Disney-ish jingle the Gantz orb emits just before assigning its alive again crew its latest mission, and that this jingle is a bit reminiscent of Uncle Walt's "It's A Small World After All" theme just adds to the creep factor. Because I do think that the Gantz entity has a sense of humor, only it's the dark, twisted sort. A sense of displacement is the mood the film is trying to evoke.

You'd perhaps be better served if you hadn't yet read the manga or seen the anime version of Hiroya Oku's GANTZ. Because this cinematic live-action adaptation comes watered-down. Hiroya Oku was trying to illustrate a point with GANTZ by making it such a depraved read. In the manga, the lead character, Kei Kurono, is a perverted person who gradually, so gradually, becomes a better person. The movie portrays Kei Kurono as a decent guy from jump, and so it right away loses depth and resonance and what would've been intriguing character conflict. We're left with watching shallow characters playing out their parts onscreen; it becomes a chore to invest in them.

When college student Kei Kurono and his juvie pal Masaru Kato rescue a drunk who'd collapsed onto the subway tracks, they become fatal victims of a hurtling train. But instead of the expected dirt nap, Kei and Kato find themselves in a room occupied by an enigmatic black sphere and other confused persons resurrected from the dead. The black sphere is the Gantz, an alien entity who issues the room's occupants hi-tech black suits and weapons and then deploys them to kill other and malevolent aliens. Gantz seems to treat this as a game, alloting a time limit to the missions and afterwards awarding points to the players based on its own whim.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good zombies February 13, 2013
Format:DVD
An out-of-the-world semi-alive male on a life support machine implanted into a sphere, Gantz volunteers (?) to save the Earth from aliens unfriendly, a Buddha statue among them, deploying victims of accidents, murdered and suicide committed by resurrecting them time by time.

A story of battling the unknown (on topic, watch Invasion) begins with depicting two young men run by a city train and might eventually be extended during the lives natural of viewers mature.

So far, no "sex-charged" as broadly announced, in-spite cool conversations between friends mentioned and tight lather-like suites on well-shaped young actors bodies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Concept, Annoying Overall December 29, 2011
By Van
Format:DVD
I've never heard of the comics or knew it to be derived from a written series before watching this movie. The concept of the story is very interesting and original. The annoying parts are when the main characters run around with guns but don't shoot their targets. They wait until they're knocked down and their guns are out of the hands then they're reaching after it. Or they'd run around with guns but never shoot at a giant target. Both the dubbing and the subtitle were horrible. It was hard to follow the story. Maybe if I was a fan of the comics, I would have enjoyed this more.

Not a bad movie and a pretty good introduction to Gantz. The visuals are great and it gives a "reasonably accurate" summation of the beginning of the Gantz series. Read more

Gantz started its life as a manga and moved on to an anime and then this live-action film. The story centers around a brilliant concept, and is very well executed here. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact
If you watched the anime, it's definitely a compacted version, and cleaner with the adult content but more blood and guts (in my opinion), but so much FUN!
