GANTZ: O (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Gantz: O catches the eye for its computer generated animation, its cinematography, sci fi storyline, and portrayal of story. The fight scenes are ‘nothing to sneeze at’. They’re terrific. There needs to be some back story provided for this film for persons who are not familiar with the series from which it was born.

Storyline

After Kei Kurono (Yuuki Kaji/Lucien Dodge) rescues a friend, he finds himself embroiled in one adventure after another.
