Gantz : Perfect Answer (2011)

After weeks of searching, I finally found the pirated copy of Gantz : Perfect Answer, a continuation of the previous Gantz real life action movie... In case u don't know, this movie an adaptation of the Gantz manga... 




THE STORY

The death of Masaru Kato (in the previous movie) had made Kurono Kei even stronger and he strived to save as many Gantz members as he could in every mission they had to endure... Suddenly, Gantz, without any warning changed the rules of the death game... It sent out a former Gantz member who had graduated after gaining 100 points to recruit back other former members into the Gantz room again... Besides that, Kato suddenly appeared without being revived by Gantz... In this movie, the Gantz member did not just face danger from the aliens but also among themselves as they fight with each other for their own selfish needs...


THE PLUS POINTS

Subway Battle

The action scenes were awesome as the gun and sword fights were choreographed so well and they were so engaging to watch... The scene that I enjoyed watching the most was the fight between the black suits aliens and the Gantz members in the subway train carts... The director was clever enough to manipulate the carts' space to the action scene's advantage... The fighting movements seemed ruthless and smooth, making it the best sword fighting scene in this movie... I also love the way the aliens used their guns to fight and block enemies' swords... It was great...




The Twists

There were so many unexpected twists in this movie... Even the fans of the manga would have a problem predicting what's gonna happen next and that's what made it engaging to watch... 


The Visual Effects, Props and Costumes

Though the CGI usage was limited, the visual effects were still amazing to watch... I love the way the producers depicted the nature of the aliens... Black suits, weapons coming out from their palms, shape shifting and ability to regenerate... I also love the Gantz suits especially when the it's powered up... They looked awesome... 

However, the producers failed to make the Spiderman-like leaping scenes real... It looked ridiculous... 



THE MINUS POINTS

The First 30 Minutes

This movie opened up with boring sequences of Kurono's life after Kato died - how awesome he was in battle, how he helped to take care of Ayumu and how his relationship with Tae taking a good turn... It was rather slow and uninteresting... The fun only started when the subway fight took place... 


Lack of Explanation

Some scenes were not efficiently explained, leaving me lost and confused on what really happening... For example, what was the water sprayed on Gantz making it explode? and also how could the alien be transported into the room? Was it because it was  holding the small black ball or was it because he killed Tae?


The Ending

The last battle took place in the Gantz room where both Kato and Kurono had to fight with the alien leader in disguise as Nishi... That particular scene was meant to be sentimental but because of the bad script and story line, it seemed horrible and lame... 


ALL IN ALL

The best thing about this movie is the action scenes... Awesomely choreographed and topped with good visual effects... What made this movie not so great is the bad script and story line... The producers wanted it to be so sentimental but they failed miserably... Therefore, if I ever wanna watch this movie again, I would just skip to the action parts and ignore the rest... 


3 out of 5 stars...
