Somewhere in Tokyo, there is a room. In that room is a black sphere. Periodically, people who should otherwise have died are transferred to the room. There, the sphere gives them special suits and weapons, and sends them out on a mission to kill aliens here on Earth. While these missions take place, the rest of the world is largely oblivious to them. These missions are lethal - few participants survive them. The sphere calls the shots, and it's not the slightest bit nice. Its name...
I'll start by saying i expected a lot more when i first saw the trailer. This is made to suck in newbies to the Gantz franchise, but unless you're at least a little bit familiar with it, everything seems foggy and unclear. To the people who read/watched the previous material: it follows the Osaka arc with some major changes. Basically there's not much to review here. It's a mediocre action sci-fi. CGI was definately the best i've ever seen. Fight scenes are in the gray area, choreography is beautiful but the way these characters think in fights is just nonsense, making it "meh". Nothing good or bad to say about the sound; voice acting is fine and the music is nonexistent, trust me, you won't even notice it due to the ammount of bullshit/awesomness. The main protagonist Kato is nothing but a moron with a hero complex. Everything he does here is to save others, which almost made this unwatchable for me. He does the same thing all the time; lame jump attacks directed to a very strong monster because he's trying to...yeah you guessed it.. save someone. And as a side note, he actually died twice. First time he was taken to the Gantz room and had to fight, but used the 100pts to free himself. Then he died again..while saving a random stranger. He just doesn't remember it. Honestly, what a fucking retard. The rest of the fellowship is equally dumb. Big titty Reika, the old man Suzuki, and the teen mommy Yamasaki were pretty much useless the entire time. Osaka crew was badass looking at first glance, but equally dumb as our hero Kato, just at the other end of the spectrum. They didn't give a shit about anyone else but themselves, which made them overconfident and ultimately, dead. All things considered, i'm really mad that this turned out such a fluke. But everything i watch lately has the same generic characters with the same personalities you can find in every shounen ever, so i'm not even surprised that much. One thing is certain tho, i'll never watch this again. Peace out.
Gantz: O I've never read the manga, so I don't know whether the film or the anime series are more built on the manga. However, I can say that the film scared me a lot less than the implementation of the anime series. However, the movie had almost no storyline and only offered tons of solid action. So looking at it as a single action title would be well worth it. The action begins somewhere in the middle and throws the viewer straight into the deep end. Then we see a lot of characters, monsters and even more characters whose names and presence we somehow had to notice. There was fighting and then there was a final opponent and that was pretty much the whole plot of the movie. I can't say anything about the animations. They are absolutely top notch, were able to catch the fights, atmosphere and dynamics superbly. The characters seemed to have a kind of motivation and their own motivations, but otherwise you didn't see much of it. I'm just happy to have found some character in the film because the action was really non-stop. Conclusion Basically a movie that is definitely worth watching, especially for the action genre and dynamics. Otherwise he has nothing to offer.
Bro honestly this is the coolest Gmod game mode I've ever played. The graphics look so good that it's almost like it was made by a big anime studio. The mouth animations don't match up with the subtitles and makes it seem that they're speaking a different language than English, like Japanese or something. Most of the NPCs can be asshats or just plain dumb, but some of them are aight. The love interest was pretty dull and boring almost like they thought up some generic female character and slapped it in the code. One of the only good NPCs was that one guy with the mechs, but he got barely any screen time so that got me kind of disappointed. The citizen get in the way all the damn time. Sometimes it makes me think that i'm supposed to shoot the citizens and not the monsters. It'd be cool if there was a setting that wouls turn the citizens off or make the player invisable to them, but that's just me. The story is a little mixed up and hard to understand, but you dont need to have a compelling story when the game is fun right? The items are so cool, but some might be a little out of place. The knives and swords are pretty dumb, and it's annoying how you have to use them. The guns are so cool and fell like they have power behind it. The way that they seem to increase the gravity arround the enemy and squish them is really cool, but the reload time and range aren't that good. It'd be cool if they could like blow up the target and spew guts everywhere, but again that's just me. The bikes are pretty cool but too seem to blow up all the time. The suits have a cool design but their effects and animation look kind of dumpy. And let's not forget those mechs. The big one might look like the stone samurai from Samurai Jack, but it was a fun as hell level to play, and the littler one was fun to dart around the map with. The monsters look they belong in doom in all their 90's monster creativity. And that final boss was a tough one! The first form was kinda fun after I realised I couldn't hit it. Then that one lady form was a tad bit too Lady-like for me, and I kept dying because it gets harder to play when you can only use one hand. Then that cthulu-looking form was the best fight of the game in the mech. Getting to fight in one of those big robots made me feel like I was in pacific rim. That bald form was hard to finish because he kept me on my toes the whole time. But Bro. That final form looked amazing and the fight was hard-fought with all those damn quick time events, but it felt satisfying after I beat him. Overall this was the most fun I've had playing a Gmod game mode dispite the glitches and bugs here and there. I would seriously recommend this to anyone who still plays and enjoys Gmod to this day.
