Gantz - 2010 - 6/10
AKA - 前編
Japanese Sci-Fi - Horror - action film based on popular manga.

Followed by a sequel.
Gantz: Perfect Answer - 2011 - 6/10
AKA - ガンツパーフェクトアンサー
Not nearly as different or inventive as the first film, but the sequel reveals who is killing those “recently deceased,” and why.
And what happened to combatants who were slain in battles.
More full on conflicts, with a highlight occurring in a high speed subway.
The rare sequel that provides resolution to the first movie.
Both Gantz flicks ought to be viewed as a pair.
