    Will consist of 55% less Music and Ecchi (respectively). Thus falling directly in line with expectations following this Gantz movie.

    If you take out 55% of music from K-on, you have -15% of music.

    Judging by the article and the buch of screaming fangirls at the post screening interview of the actors I'm sure they'll show up in droves to see this and the sequel in aprilish.

    I saw the movie in theaters and I enjoyed it, aside from the bad dubbing (which was quite humorous). While Gantz is a T&A and guro filled manga, that is not the sole defining element in Gantz. If this was the case, well then Gantz would be really bad no different from something like Queens Blade.

    Yes, it deters a bit from the original story line. That shit will always happen in movie adaption's from print material (Books, comics, manga,etc). Don't be so alarmed. What matters is if the changes make the film work better as a live-action. In the case of Gantz, yea, I think it does. I would be skeptical as to the quality of the movie if it followed the manga 100% and I doubt they would even give it a proper ending after just 2 or 3 movie installments following the manga exactly. Try not to compare it too much to the manga, and it's a decent movie.

    And let it be known though, I was just as sad to see the absence of Kei banging the Lara Croft Clone chick in the hallway as much as anyone else.

    this movie played at a theater where i live. it was terrible. it was so dark that nobody could see anything. it was like i was watching a recording of a recording. they showed the trailer for the second one at the end which seemed like it would be a thousand times better but the trailer for this one was like that too so I expect FAIL again.

    I saw it on opening night with 3 friends. We and everyone else left the theater rather happy with it. I didn't hear any complaints. There was a bit of creative license taken sure, bit it was still rather good.

    I saw the movie at the world premiere.

    I liked it. The level of gore, maybe not as graphic as the manga, was still decent. Lot's of blood and exploding parts.

    Also, it's a little unfair to expect the same amount of nudity in a live action film.

    And Natsuna was gorgeous. A fair amount of service for the guys. This is also her first movie. Can't people be satisfied with the nude scene they got?

    Is the movie supposed to BE Gantz? or is it INSPIRED by Gantz?

    If it is supposed to BE Gantz, then does it follow scene for scene the Manga?
    If it is only INSPIRED by Gantz, is the story any good?

    Depending on the answers to these questions, you can then evaluate the movie.

    I will see it anyway.
    If it is any good, I may buy a copy.

    "The scene was filmed and she did it nude, but the final scene didn’t show a single nipple or any pubic hair."

    Therefore it' not a nude scene right?

    I saw this at the Hollywood World Premiere and I came into the Chinese Theater not expecting much. However, the movie was very entertaining. I understand how many Gantz fan would feel when things aren't directly translated into the movie, but people should know that movies and manga/books are two completely different mediums. Granted, it would be great to see more eye candy from her, but it doesn't interfere with the storyline and overall plot of the movie. And let the fangirls be fangirls because this movie is badass.

    Especially the Thousand Arm Buddha.

    yeah two different things indeed. manga is the victim and movie is the murderer. from the start, gantz had already gathered fans because of the hard core guro. i mean, where else you'll see a bloodbath in italy? if you're going to adapt it into a movie, you should know how to instill the feeling of fear and anticipation from the audience. the feeling of "omg are they gonna live through this???? with all this god-like enemies?" something like that. if you can't put the movie that way, then it's bleach live action movie.

    I was able to see a screening of it too. Its not Gantz that was in the manga or anime. The story as been stripped of its soul and meaning - glossy rubbish remains. I don't think any Gantz fans will like the film version. Score: Fail.

    I saw it at a special screening here in the U.S. and I can validate that their opinions are correct. Not only that, but the fangirl/fanboy ratio was horribly off. When I first walked in the theater and saw an overwhelming presence of girls I thought "...but this is gantz....why is the girl/guy ratio so OFF". Well, after seeing that the only "special guests" for the simulcast were just the two male protagonists, I knew what I was in for, and who the movie was aimed at.

    All in all though, the movie wasn't too bad. I still got to see Natsuna run around in a skin tight suit, and a bit of bloody violence. But they subtracted tomb raider (and the sex scene she participated in).

    For every pro, 2 cons. Ah well...

    I, unfortunately, had the misfortune of watching it. Not only were the boys "pretty", they spent quite the time smiling at each other. And Katou's brother looked pretty androgynous which hinted some trap shota themes.

    Pretty boys aside (and naked women for the men) I always liked Gantz for its story and action. While I was kinda disappointed they cut off a lot of the guro, I certainly didn't miss it and it wasn't the reason I watched/read it anyways.

    The movie could've been a lot worse if we take into account the atrocities manga/anime titles usually undergo through the live-action adaptation process. The story, while having its inevitable changes, remains in essence the same, at least for the first movie.

    TL;DR: I really, really liked the movie. (inb4 getting downvoted)
