Gantz (BD+DVD Combo)

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?

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!*

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.

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".

I must admit that for the longest time I avoided the whole Gantz thing, but then I got curious about what was so good about a series that was reportedly excessively violent that it spawned not one, but two live action movies. I got the anime series and watched it last week and today I watched the blu-ray version of the the first movie. This is a review of the first movie.

The thrust of the anime series was mainly on the characterization of all the people drawn into Gantz battles. As such there was a LOT of back story, but was a good run-down on how life or death situations would affect non-military type people. This movie cuts out a lot of that and so the focus shifts to the Gantz situation and the battles themselves. It also cuts out the soft-core hentai sex scenes. Since the film is only two hours long, the battles are really truncated. This shortening results in a tighter emphasis on the battles, for those who are action, and not talk oriented. This movie covers the first three of the four trips through Gantz battles in the anime.

I watched the show with subtitles, which I prefer. The blu-ray disk didn't give me any problems, and the detail was terrific. This also meant that all the blood-spattering was in a lot more detail, so be forewarned. This isn't any Robo-geisha with bleeding buildings, but very realistic and easily comparable to any Hollywood production.

In the Gantz I movie, it still tries to follow how Kei's feelings about killing things changes over time, from abhorring it, to thinking he is a hero, to trying to protect his friends. If you want to see a lot more in-depth of things like this for All the characters watch the anime. In fact, watch the anime director's comments on the anime disk before you watch the show, since it will help you catch the detail in the Gantz storyline.

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.
