Death does not have to be the end; one can live again, but only through beating the game posed by the black ball called Gantz.

On his way home to celebrate his younger brother's birthday, brave and kind-hearted student named Masaru Katou is stabbed to death. He awakes in a small room with a cityscape view in the heart of Tokyo—and he is not alone. To his surprise, it is not the afterlife, but the waiting room for a high stakes game with their lives on the line. Before he has the chance to process the situation, Masaru is handed a gun and teleported into the center of Osaka to carry out one simple task: eliminate any alien on sight.

Accompanied by the aged Yoshikazu Suzuki, the stunning idol Reika Shimohira, and the cold but experienced Jouichirou Nishi, Masaru must overcome his fears in order to survive the game and return home to his waiting brother.

This entirely CGI movie produced by Digital Frontier is everything that the TV show is not. It’s good. It’s so fucking good and cool, it’s difficult to believe they’re part of the same franchise.

The premise is as simple as can be and gets established within the first 5 minutes. Once you die, you get transported to a mysterious room where a mysterious entity called Gantz plunges you head first into an infinite survival game. Armed with fancy sci-fi weapons and donning a black spandex bodysuit, you basically have to act as the Japanese Men in Black and kill hordes upon hordes of demons/aliens.

The film gives ...

Mixed Feelings
CGI is great but that's pretty much it. Everything is one big question: WHY? Why are they fighting this god knows what? Why are they talking instead of shooting? Why a monster that killed the best player and resisted any attacks was killed by a gun that was unable to takedown a weaker demon 10 minutes before? Why at the end his score was 100 if he killed more than just one last boss? It feels that logic and storyline was shredded by the same gun they use to shred those monsters. But boobs have physics. That should deserve an extra point but it shown ...

This 3D reboot is SO GENERIC... weak female character portraying fragility & hence emphasise horrors by contrast? Check. Helpful old man? Check. Arrogant kid getting slapped in the face due to his ego because irony? Check. Arrogant adults that "will never die" but dies anyway to make the monsters look more terrifying? Check.

"You have XXX (insert younger family member) to live for, right?", "I have to do this! Because (insert previous family member/courage/world/pedestrians)!!!".

Some contrived love relationship that's totally not a red flag for the inevitable death to feel heavier? Check. Protagonist finding fury/strength to counter-attack from said death? Check. This final fury as a ...
